how to rock camping

i am still not over the fact that yakov apparently has a summer camp??? because you know what would be fucking hilarious

yakov’s summer skating camp as the setting of a camp rock-esque au where talented (and also anxiety-ridden) young skater yuuri katsuki gets to attend bc yu-topia for some reason is doing catering that summer and MEANWHILE viktor nikiforov gets pulled in to be the famous celebrity coach bc he owed yakov some favour i guess and there’s a big skating competition at the end of the summer that everyone’s working towards and while viktor is wandering around trying to find the ~mysterious skater who perfectly replicated his free skate~ he also gets to coach yuuri and they fall in love and SURPRISE at the end of the summer turns out yuuri is ~mysterious skater~ and they do a duet on the ice and win the competition

I have a very important question: How old is too old to watch Camp Rock? Because I have that one song from the beginning when she is getting ready for school stuck in my head, and I think that the best way to relieve this is to watch the movie. I am almost 23, is this still socially acceptable?

You're the voice I hear inside my head, the reason that I'm singing.

Infinite List of Movies: [37/??] Camp Rock (2008)
↳ “So here’s some advice. It’s not all about your image. None of it means anything unless people see who you really are. And your music has to be who you really are. It’s gotta show how you feel, or it doesn’t mean anything.”

The horrible, whiny, obnoxious campers of last week are gone, and their replacements are here.

I prepped myself to be super stern with this group and not allow the back talk and resistance of last week’s, but as soon as they arrived, I knew I’d been blessed. They’re all ten and still babyish, which is not usually something I work well with, but they’re also all super smart and sweet. It’s going to be a great week.

One camper, who I shall call Halfling, immediately recognized my rendition of ‘Concerning Hobbits’ on the penny whistle and told me that he’s read the Lord of the Rings several times and attempted The Silmarillion. We high-fived and talked about Tolkien for a while. Then, later, I read him sections of a Popular Science issue on scientific misconceptions and paranormal hoaxes. One of them was about the sun being made of gas rather than plasma.
Me: [singing] “The sun is a mass of incandescent gas–”
Halfling: “–a gigantic nuclear furnace!”
Both: “Where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees!”

We both made faces like this: 8D and started talking about XKCD and commiserating on being short for our age until another camper came up and said, “You guys are like the perfect pair of nerds. I can’t take it.”

Turns out Halfling also did static trapeze classes and a little bit of flying trapeze at the same venue as me. This is crazy!

Another camper has an encyclopedic knowledge of North American species of deer, elk, caribou, moose, ect. I’ll come up with a nickname for him later. Two others just got out of a camp themed around pictograms and secret codes.

This? This I can work with. All my coworkers are going to be fatigued and burnt out and I am going to be ROCKING this week.


My dad made it sound so easy. He’s really good at camping, and how to make fire from rocks and stuff. He used to come to all my sweat lodge meetings. And afterwards, we’d go get ice cream at Fenton’s. I always get chocolate and he gets butter brickle. Then we sit on this one curb right outside, and I count all the blue cars and he counts all the red ones, and whoever gets the most, wins. I like that curb.

someone: hey what’s up-
me: stop, i hate small talk. i wanna talk about how camp rock totally should have beat camp star at the final jam in camp rock 2. it’s literally not fair

  • what she says: I'm fine
  • what she means: In the movie Camp Rock, how did everyone magically know the words and dance moves to the final song? Even if they had rehearsed it at some point, wouldn't Shane have heard Mitchie sing and knew she was the girl with the voice? Why was she even given such a large role in the song if throughout the entire movie she knew she was afraid of singing in front of a crowd?
