"I think in a way, this picture shows that you have limits (only 6 arrows and a bow) — not every arrow goes where you want it to to go, and it's frustrating but you know that you can always try again and... that helps with the frustration. I learned similar values at climbing, you don't always find the route the first time: your patience gets tested but you end up with more of it. These are things that you can work on individually, but you also always have people supporting you, people who are trying or who've already passed their levels, the activity heads, the people around who take the time to praise you. It's a very linear progression in that sense and I find it very satisfying, especially since it's so different from the ups and downs from the city."
