Summer in New York5:45 PM
I want to apologize for being away for so long. As I mentioned in previous posts, I went to New York for two months to work at a summer camp as a general counselor. It was truly one of the best summers of my life. Before camp I stayed in the city for a couple of days, there I met 2 people who ended up being 2 of my best friends from camp and I believe that our friendship will last for a very long time. I was a general counselor to 28 amazing 8 and 9 year olds. During staff week, they told us that it was going to be the best summer of our lives, that we would grow closer to people in 2 months than to people we've known for years. I didn't believe any of it and 2 months later, here I am, back home, missing those 28 little girls and my co counselors like crazy! It's an amazing experience and if you haven't lived it, I don't think you can ever understand how fulfilling it is. I remember my boss telling us during the first couple of days "This is the hardest and most amazing job you'll ever have"...She was completely right. In fact, she was so right that I'm just counting the days to be back!
