Summer is ending. Ending, as in I have to go college tomorrow. That's really, really weird. Literally two weeks ago, I was in the woods, being woodsy. That's most of the reason for the lack of posts this summer.
Now, I'm going to write about all the things I did this summer and didn't write about while I was actually doing them. YAY.
So, Camp. I went there, and it was woodsy. EXCEPT that we have logging happening on camp and our trees are getting cut down and it's REALLY SAD. Everyone on staff this year was returning, except for Jumana, who was international (from Palestine!). I feel like that made the dynamic a little different. I don't want to say that this year was less fun than last year, it was just different. There was less togetherness, it just felt like I was...just there, sometimes.
So I'm not sure if I'm as dead-set on going back next summer as I once was.
THE NOVEL, you ask? It's still a thing, and I still like it. There's just a whole lot of writing that I need to do, and not enough time to do it in. I did a lot of work during the portion of summer when I was in Novi, but I didn't have a whole lot of time at camp.
AVOCADOS, you ask? I ate a metric fuckton of avocados this summer, and it was a really enjoyable experience. I strongly recommend it. There are like four avocados in my fridge right now, and...I plan on EATING ALL OF THEM RIGHT THIS MINUTE.
BARE BARE BARE BARE BARE BARE BARE is a musical about gay boys who are acting in Romeo and Juliet and go to a Catholic boarding school. ALL MY FAVOURITE THINGS IN ONE. SRSLY. YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO THIS BECAUSE IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Just a few of my favourite songs right hurr.
I just love love love how it's crazy and dramatic and I just have so many FEEELS BECAUSE DRAAAAAMAAAAAA. Gaah. I feel like bare just understands me so much.
So, KAYAKING. This summer, I feel like I spent a lot more time kayaking or at least a lot more time explaining kayaking, which makes me feel like "woah, maybe this is a thing I'm good at or something." and yeah. KAYAKING IS THE SHIZ. All y'all should check out mah fifteen-seventeen post on kayaking right now.
UMMM. Yeah. So I should have like, goals, for like, this semester or something. I want to blog a lot! I want to meet a lot of people! I want to do really well in school! I want to find an internship! YEAH! LET'S DO ALL THIS STUFF AND MORE, GUYS!
I should probably stop making a fool of myself now. Kthnxbai, love y'all.
Here's the deal. Ireland seems to be the shiz, and I think I want to move there. If you are looking for someone super duper cool to hang out with you in Ireland, TELL ME YO.

"You’ve got one life; live it. Follow your dreams, quit your job, drop out of school, tell your boyfriend that he’s lousy, and walk out the door. This is your time. This is your life. You know what? Dream as big as you want to; it’s the cheapest thing you’ll ever do."
