COMMENCE 11 DAYS OF AWESOMENESS
THIS is why I haven’t have time to write much lately: After Seattle, I was in KC for one day, then Springfield for one day, St. Louis one day for a wedding, KC one day for my sister’s one-year anniversary, Springfield for two days to move out for realz and celebrate my friend Chelsea’s birfday, then home for three whole days before today.
THIS is why I won’t have time to write for a while:
- Friday through Sunday (1-3) a few Mu Phi friends are gathering for a weekend here in Kansas City! This gives me, a local, an excuse to do all things tourist-y like eat barbecue, play in the JC Nichols fountain, and go to a drive-in!
- Monday through Saturday (4-9) I GET TO GO TO CAMP. Yes, I’ll spend all summer at camp, and while Interlochen is fun, Youthfront is my home. I grew up there–in all forms of the word. It really deserves its own post so I won’t go on too much of a tangent, but for now I’ll just say I’m unbelievably excited to experience camp from a new perspective. I’ve been a camper, Teen staffer, Summer staffer, and now a Volunteer Cabin Leader.
- Sunday (10) I get to spend 13 hours with just George (my car), my iPod, and the road. I might have downloaded 14 hours worth of new music last week… but whether or not I have new music, I love road trips by myself. I love having the freedom to sing as loud as I want, to stop wherever and whenever I want, and to take whatever route I want. The possibilities are endless.
- Monday (11) I’ll drive another hour and a half to get to INTERLOCHEN during check-in hours. I’m excited to see old friends and meet the new people in the recreation department. I’m excited to see how this second summer will be different from the first. I’m excited for Lochaven and golf carts.
It’s great when you’re too busy living life to write a novel about it on Tumblr, to read about someone else’s on Facebook, or to create an imaginary one on Pinterest. I am guilty of all preceding charges, but remembering that real life is better and more important than internet life is always a good thing.
