(I've not had time for anything really until now. <3 me anyway? I <3 j00.)
So, I'm back & alive. 10th-17th = camp. At the best camp eveh. <3
So, some stuff was different this year with it being the second year Mable's family was directing and the like. But it made it amazing. I signed up for high ropes & lurvly sit-on-tops the first two days then high ropes & crafts later XD.
Well high ropes...I'm so friggin' proud of myself that I did it. (It's basically a whole bunch of obstacles you perform 25+ ft in the air.) I've always been nervous, then one of my good friends from the week, Haley, said she'd do it with me and I was gone. I completed the first course relatively easily, which was a cat-walk pole, wires, then zip line. (Zipline = clip self to looooong wire from 30+ ft, run, jump, & fly down huge hillside...= <3) Then the 2nd course was harder. It was 1 wire for your feet to shimy across while you reach for support ropes, then an opbstacle bridge where the obstacles flipped under you when you shifted your weight. Two people in our class fell. Twas freaky, but awesome, then to zip line. David tried to bribe me across with an orange on this one, which was the best. XDD After that I did the big swing and pamper pole. Big swing = 25 ft high, clip waist to heavy wires, climb a little (with wires), lean, free fall, feel like ground is going to eat you, wires tighten, swing out for most amazing adreniline rush ever. Pamper pole = climb 25 ft high wobly telephone pole, attempt to stand at that height (scary), get guts up, jump and catch trapeze bar. Getting the bar is hard, but I did it! Thinking about it still makes my heart rush. XD Haley yelled at me "Just suck it up and juuuump!!!" which was the best. Sit-on-tops are still my favorite boats ever, end of story. <3 In crafts I ended up with an award (the crafts lizard) at the end of the week cuz everyone was apparently impressed with a wolfy picture I made. I'll post it here. ^.^
The best night at camp was the dance night. My cabin went canoeing over to Needle's Point to camp, but a lot of girls wanted to go to the dance. So they all went, but Mable (who got to come with us <3) and I stayed on the point with just one counselor. It was the best thing eveh! We had such a crazy time... Basically Mable and I have gotten to be really close in just short amounts of time, which is amazing, and we both think the same and such so we can be crazy together. I want to have her come visit some time so she can meet everyone, cuz that would be amazing. Anywho, we basically did ordinary camping responsibilities, like bear-proof the food, but made them take twice as long since we had forever, and had an amazing time doing them. That was honestly one of the best times I've ever had. <3 A bunch of other stuff happened (of course), but I don't want to ramble too much, but it did make a (awesome) week of my life so some rambling is required. XD So, finally, I believe I broke my nose when I got shinned in the face on the bannana boat. I didn't think it was possible at first, but I discovered just how easy it is to do such a thing and how little can be done for it, and realized that it must be broken. So, wippee. It cracks now XD.
So, other than that I'm home. <3 When I came home I rapidly became crudily sick, which lasted until about weds or thursday. Yay. XP I helped a bit with the horse camp I'm volunteering at, which was cool. Thusday my hamster, Oido, died, which sucks. I lurved my Oido. For those that didn't know, she was calico and had big cute ears (thus her name) and a little black star shaped mark over he shoulders. I'm gonna miss her a lot. Yesterday I went to the lake as Richard invited me to go with three of his neighbors who are my age. It was really nice. We went to a less stuffed lake and probably only saw about 20 boats on a Saturday, so it was nice. The water was like glass. I kneeboarded a lot, so I now have that addiction. I was up on water skis, then the rope popped against my fingers, which popped my tendons, which equaled no more tendon pressure for me. We tubed a bit, then someone stole our tube. XP We also saw a wildfire, which was cool. It's too dry though(poor pasture...). Now I am quite badly sunburned and feel sick-ish again. Tomorrow the second session of the camp I'm counseloring at starts, which is bleh-ish due to burn. Ah well, suck it up. Also, dispersed between all that is a health class which is quite easy but tedious as crap. I'm already halfway done, though, so it's all good. So this is a shout out to everyone as I have not made contact with -anyone- except (very shortly) Tanya, my nice neighbors, and family. <3s for you all. I'll try to call you all sometime this week.
