last summer


i wrote this entry on  diff site on june 29,2006.. it was my reflection of the previous summer when i councelled at bible camp..

u know when u jsut get one of those summers that jsut seem like they cant get any better? well last summer was it for me... i guess the thing that played the biggest part in taht is the fact taht i was spending pretty much my whole time in one of the few places wehre i feel like i can just let go and be myself... camp. not only was there camp though.. but there was also my baptism, the fact that taryn and i grew closer, and the amazing friendships i developed that summer....these past few days i have had random memories from last summer pop up into my head and i decided that it would be a good idea to write them out so i can always remember them...

- angela and i laying on my porch at night talking about life

- melanie and the whole 'silly' thing (insider)
