1. I’m a little frightened by summer. I’m afraid I’m not going to be spending my time well, and I’m gonna miss my friends. At the same time, I’m so ready for some debrief time. I haven’t been treating myself and my friends with the proper amount of care, and I’ve left myself in a kind of rut. Overall, I want to be conscious of the right things, at the right times when I finally get unlimited free time.
6. I’ve never had a sexual experience, so this once is N/A.
14. I’m having issues really remembering who I was this time last year. But I’ve come to realize that I have typical cycles through out each year of college. Spring always leaves me exhausted, and I kind of clam up and hide in my own depressive shell. I think that’s what I did last spring, however this year, I’m much more aware of this construct of myself. The things that have made me more conscious are absolutely my friends, and a better understanding of myself. My friends keep pulling me out of my nest, and I’d say that’s the biggest difference between me a year ago — the endless amount of encouragement and acceptance from the people I love.
23. This summer I plan on working at camp again! This time I’m going to be in Washington State, right on the Puget Sound at Camp Sealth. It’s a Campfire Boys & Girls camp, so we have Camp Counselour names — meaning we can’t use our real names, but have more of a character. When I was a kid, I went to Campfire camp called Camp Kirby, and it was the same there. My favorite camp counselor names were things like Wriggamajig, Space Monkey, Meelybug, Hakuna- and Matata etc. So for my camp name, I think I’m pretty solid with being ‘Taboo.’
