I interviewed my boyfriend, Drew, at a tradition dorm at Drexel University, Kelly Hall. Drew is a 5'11 ft tall fit and toned man. he is currently a sophomore at Drexel studying Marketing with a 5 year co-op concentration. He has a light and fluffy dirty brown hair, greenish blue bright eyes, and a warming smile. Although Drew was stressed coming back to campus from his co-op with Verizon doing door-to-door sales all day, he was relaxed laying on my memory foamed bed with grey sweatpants and a navy blue hoodie on. And word shift positions from laying on his back or side. His voice was calming and relaxed while answering questions. Drew's Costa Rica trip was a great trip with a lot of memories that he will never forget. Since he was going to be away from his family for college for a long time, the trip to Costa Rica was meaningful. He was glad to be able to have a summer full of fun with his family and create wonderful memories. This was Drew's first memory of getting over his fear of heights. It was an important memory of Drew's because he would remember going on trips to amusement parks and not being able to join in on roller-coasters because he was afraid. It was also his first time zip-lining.

Drew looked up from the ground and saw huge trees, green leafy colors, and wires connecting from one tree to another, looking like it was Jurassic Park. While looking up and getting hooked to a harness, Drew's anxiety started to kick in, his hands started to sweat and nervousness started to come upon him. Even though Drew was terrified of heights, he wasn’t going to let that ruin his zip-lining summer bucket list. He closed his eyes and took a few breaths and he could hear the birds chirping, families laughing and screaming, and the light breeze flow though his light brown hair.

He leveled his sight back to the ground and started to climb the large tree trunk after hearing his harness click, a light tug from the guide to secure safety. While climbing the wood structure, he could feel the wood flex and when he moved he felt everything shake. Once reaching the first line to zip down, it was at the very top of the tree and he was nervous so his hands started to shake. When the guide unhooked Drew to switch him to the zip-line wire, he started to get even more scared once he looked down. After taking a big breath and going down the first zip-line sliding down the wire. Feeling the fresh outdoor air was relaxing and he felt like he was flying. Drew instantly started to smile and his nerves started to calm down. After the first zip-line, going from the next to the next, Drew thought it was super cool and his nervousness went away. Even when he would look down at the ground or up and trees, he would feel relaxed.

The last zip-line was the best one out of all and it was the longest one, he would first start off by running off a cliff, like a head start. While running off, he could feel his feet start to drift away from the ground and his heart started to race from adrenaline. Once he couldn’t feel his feet touch the ground he gradually started to go down the line faster. Going down the line, which felt like a kilometer or more, he could see the openness of the trees. It was relaxing and therapeutic for Drew. However, before he knew it the zip-line came to an end and he reached the ground where he first started. At first, he was upset that his session was over but he was so happy and glad to have the opportunity to zip-line. Drew looked back up to the top of the trees to take one last look to appreciate the beauty of the forest.

Before Drew left the area, he went to thank the zip-line guide for making sure he didn't fall from a tree, "Thank you so much for making sure I didn't die today, Have a great day, see you next time!!". The guide chuckled and said, "Anytime man, see you again.".  Drew turned around and left the area with a big smile on his face.
