August 3, 2006
After the week from hell at camp (I got attacked by Poison Ivy and a skunk!) my luck has definitely been looking up. The weather's been gorgeous, I've managed to get a pretty impressive tan (don't worry, I've been lathering up with sunscreen) and I've met a really cute boy!
Yeah, I know. I said I was going to just do my own thing and not worry too much about boys this summer, but can I help it if they pursue me? I couldn't very well turn down a moonlit walk along the lake with a hottie like Connor. He's another junior counselor, who I didn't really know that well until a few weeks ago when we were paired together to lead a day-long nature hike with a bunch of the older kids. We all hiked to this open meadow where we set up a big picnic and played games for the afternoon.
That day we really got to know each other - he's a sophomore in Colorado who's on the track team and loves fishing and the outdoors. Being from California, I'm more of a beach kid and don't usually bond with the outdoorsy types - but then again, I didn't think I would ever be working at a summer camp either. Connor is so chill and we found out that we love all the same movies (we're both super stoked to see the new Will Ferrell movie, Talladega Nights) and he's been dying to come surfing in Cali, so we're going to see if we can meet up after camp is over.
I'm not going to get too caught up in this boy though. He's a lot of fun to hang out with but once camp is over we'll be going home to our separate states and the long distance thing never works. But that doesn't mean I can't have fun while I'm here, right? There are still four weeks of summer left...
