The title explains it all. If you're looking for something intellectually fulfilling, don't look here.
First off. HELLO BLOG WORLD! You would think that during the summer I would be able to write more often than I do during the semester. Apparently not. I went to Florida, came back to Kansas, flew to Ohio to be a camp counselor, came back to Kansas for a week, then went back to Ohio to spend time with JT and then attend the SSA 2012 leadership conference.
I am currently sitting in an airport in Charlotte, NC. My flight was supposed to leave at 10:15pm, but is now scheduled for 12:15am EST and will hopefully land around 1:35am CST. I'm so sleepy! Don't worry. I bought raisinets and gummy bears.
So updates on life. When I was a counselor at Camp Quest, I had a blast. The kids were amazing, and the whole thing was just a lot of fun. Exhausting but fun. I'd also like to mention that JT was a counselor as well, and he was amazing with his cabin of 8 little boys all between 8-10 years old. It was adorable. He likes to think he's super tough and mean, but he loves kids and it's adorable to witness.
I hope to go more in depth about Camp Quest and its awesomeness in a later post, but right now words are hard.
I think a man in front of me just had a spider on him. He jumped out of his seat. It was only a little funny.
Update: holy shit IT WAS A GIANT COCKROACH AND IT'S RIGHT NEXT TO ME. Man. talk about karma. It's not so funny when it's right next to me... Sorry for laughing, stranger near me.
Ahem. okay. So. Sometimes JT likes to write posts about how to not be an asshole in the airport. This includes not sitting next to power outlets if you're not using them. I'd like to add something to the list. If you're using the moving sidewalk and are just standing on it, don't take up the whole freaking lane! People have connections to catch, and you're blocking their quicker path. Just stand to the side, really.
Cockroach update: he was creeping everyone out, so someone finally squished him. He lived a good little bug life, but he was too fast and crawled over too many feet. Also, it amazes me what will bring people together. We were all sitting here in silence, ignoring each other's presence. Then this cockroach shows up, and we start laughing and talking and warning passersby if they got to close to the bug.
Life update: My past week in Ohio was awesome. I got to spend some quality time with JT (which is very rare), volunteered at the SSA office to assist with conference prep and then attended the conference where I got to hang out with old friends and make many new ones along the way.
JT and I saw the new Spiderman. It was SO GOOD! We both loved it. He says it was as good as the Avengers. I won't go so far as to say that, but I would definitely watch it again.
Okay. Well. That's enough, right? If you're up and reading this, I'll be here for a while, so instead of lurking you should entertain me with a story or a joke or advice on how to protect myself from cockroaches. Bye, loves!
