Sindy is working at a sleep-away camp this summer. Find out how she's liking her new job.

July 6, 2006

Well, I arrived safe and sound at camp last week and so far it's been a blast. It was a bit overwhelming for the first few days, getting to know everyone and sleeping in a strange bed - but now it feels like I've been here forever. I've made some great friends and all the kids I'm working with are so much fun!

When I first got here I had to go through an orientation where I learned about the different activities I would be teaching this summer. It looks like I'll mostly be focusing on arts and crafts and nature hikes, which is totally cool with me. Basically I'm getting paid to play and explore all summer - I can't think of a better summer job! I was worried that the kids were going to be complete brats, but my group has been really well-behaved. I have five kids that I'm in charge of at a time, so it's not too bad at all.

On top of my activity stations, I also have to help out in the kitchen once a week and join in on campfire sing-alongs at least one night a week. All the counselors (including me!) get one evening off a week and we can go watch movies in the main hall or spend some quiet time in our cabins or do pretty much anything else we'd like. It's pretty cool.

I honestly didn't think I was going to have this much fun. I knew it would be better than rollerskating around, delivering hamburgers to demanding people, but I wasn't expecting to get this into it. I've been hanging out a lot with this girl who's in the same cabin as me. Her name is Katie and she's from Florida. She's never been away from home for this long either so we've been helping each other through our homesickness. She's also into the drama scene at her school, so we've had a lot to talk about.

So far, there has been no real potential for a summer romance, but I'm pretty content with just doing my job and making new friends. Boys certainly aren't the most important thing in life... But I wouldn't be completely opposed to at least meeting some cute ones at some point! Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Hope you all are having a great summer so far. what you've been up to!

1Hi Sindy,

    Kid at my school nicknamed "Blueberry". Hated by all the Seniors at the school and the teachers can hardly stand him. If I were to go through everything he's done, I'd be writing a short story. Let's just say, he should have gotten expelled Freshman year. And all the years after that.

    Three mean girls at school...I JUST DON'T LIKE THEM. They bunk the classes and never get scolded and they act(ed) very mean to me and  one of my 3 bffs.  They are just OVER SMART and ever they sometimes wish to talk above the teacher. Then comes the Boys. There are 3 boys you know, who are a part of the gang of these mean girls. These boys are also so mean. I ask you, am I untouchable? Whenever I go past their bags, they say, 'hey what are you doing' or something like that... At least they are better in front of the teachers...unlike *SOME* people I could mention. But in spite of all these I really do like them all as friends and I am a pretty good forgetter, so I soon forget whatever they said to me. So, I think there is no one I HATE, practically.

    Ok so in my highschool there is only one pure ginger. His name is Sean.... I believe that's how you spell his name. Will this ginger is impossible to deal with. When I'm talking to my friends he butts In thinking he's part of the conversation, but he isn't. So when I decides to try and butt in, I automatically scold him. And I know it seems mean but when someone annoys you to the limit you sort of go Insane ya know? So everytime he gets near me I walk away before he can even open his mouth to talk. I know y'all probably think he isn't bad, but he said himself that he was going to grow up to be a killer and ######. He said it himself and not in a sarcastic tone. Nobody in my school can deal with him. The teachers can't either. But I want to know, do any of you have someone you truly dislike at school?
