this is the end... (or is it??)

to officially wrap up (most of) my post-camp tales of triumph and woe, i hereby bring you... the staff banquet post!!

the staff banquet was a fancy-pants dinner party that the camp directors threw for us as a thank-you for our hard work. it was chock full of delicious food, positive vibes, and it really helped give us closure :)

in the interest of protecting the innocent, i won't be recounting much of what went on that night, but here's the basic info: the festivities kicked off with a lovely dinner and drinks, followed by a dance party. followed by... ???! craziness? several professions of love to various people? i'll let your imaginations run wild with that one...

i'll say that one of the things i loved most about the event were the "warm fuzzies." they're little notes you write to people you think are awesome, then place in individual envelopes addressed to those specific people. you aren't supposed to read them until the next day, but i read mine that night :)

during dinner, everyone went crazy writing warm fuzzies. i felt that it gave the night a positive spin, and made everyone realize how much we would miss each other...

here was my envelope! the visual arts department made each individual one for almost 100 people.
