moments | Chantilly


hey again, all my blogger and internet people that i miss super-a-lot :)

i've been thinking about the fact that i haven't been able to get any style posts to you guys. i feel sad about this. i did bring some cute clothes with me. the problem is that i just cannot look cute here.

i know that sentence sounds like i'm fishing for compliments, but nope. the heat is brutal, and my hair becomes frizzy in record time. there's really no point in doing my makeup, because it all comes off when you start to sweat, which is about a half hour after breakfast.

{{end rant}}

now it's time to talk about the really amazing friendships i've forged (some of which may actually last!), and experiences i've had so far. i think coming to this place has been exactly what i needed. the walls i've built up over years of living in the city have slowly been coming down. i've felt more happy and relaxed than i have in ages.

on that note, here are some more camp snaps...

flowers picked in the meadow near our staff bunks.

forget my phone, purse, debit card, and everything else i usually need outside this bubble. the blue folder under the pretty flowers is my life. it has my schedule, as well as curriculum for all my classes and important papers. the folder, water, and my guitar are the things i carry with me wherever i go.


also- there are performances. lots of them. recently, the music department played a rousing rendition of some james brown jam for the kids.

sometimes you just gotta play james brown. a rare photo of me doing so-

hope your day is excellent.
