good morning everyone! how have you been? so i finally have a minute to tell you guys what i've been up to this summer and things happening at camp!
to start off, here is the bunk I live in:
it's an old chicken coop. i share the space with three other girls. as an adult who has been living in her own apartment for some time, i'm used to having things a certain way. i'm definitely an "i need my space" type of person. at first, i was afraid about the lack of it. but i got used to it pretty quickly!
the cabins are… rustic, to put it nicely. there's a few daddy longlegs i've befriended in the shower. my arms and legs are full of bites. it's full of bugs and dirt and charm, and i love it.
another thing: the schedule. it's crazy. it's 12-14 hour days. it's fun work, but exhausting. i teach two guitar classes, a rock band ensemble, and a songwriting class six days a week. plus we're all responsible for other duties such as planning events, running workshops, and supervising the camp.
one of my favorite pieces of magic here are the fireflies. our bunk is right by the edge of the forest, and every night there's tons of fireflies blinking all the way up to the tallest tree. I've never seen anything like it. the trees look like they're glittering in the dark.
some other scenes from around:
I've already made some AMAZING friends that I'll be really sad to be leaving behind when I go home :( but some of them actually live in new york, so i hope to be keeping in touch :)
hope everyone out there has been having a wonderful summer!
