I had the best time in Vermont! It was amazing and it felt great to have fresh air in my lungs and a blue sky over my head. It was very inspiring of drawings and songs I created while I was there. Being in the mountains also made me realize how little people appreciate a blue sky when it’s there every day- I never realized how much of an affect the lack of it would have on me until I was trapped under it for so long. On the last day of camp, four people were chosen to hold a candle that represented each of the four elements while everyone else sobbed and sang (about the end of camp, not the candles… ahem) and I was given the “air” candle for my “appreciation of air and the sky”. That really made me think.
Anyway, I’m sorry my mom neglected to post for me. She had good intentions, she still likes you guys! She just didn’t want to mess up my blog and embarrass me. Unfortunately, that made most of you guys go away so I’m going to have to get re-connected and you can help by spreading the word about this blog! I’m sorry. I promise I don’t mean to be such a walking advertisement.
I’m very aware that it’s June, but I’m going to a new school next year and I’ve been thinking about it a lot. 8th grade is uber important! It will affect the rest of my life: my grades will affect my high school, college and then career, and because I’m not moving again after this, the friends and (hopefully not) enemies will stay with me through high school and maybe beyond. I can’t think of a year in my life that will be more important than 8th grade. Maybe my junior year of HS?
Either way, I’m going to be posting some back-to-school vibes, some of which I might have already posted.

Ahh, I love cool shoes and sharpening pencils. I also love my handwriting on the first week of school. Just writing this is making me excited for the fall- my favorite season for weather and fashion!
While I was at camp, I noticed there is no such thing as summer camp fashion, so, at the same time, there was. The lack of creativity in the way people dressed inspired creativity in general, I suppose. There was a very specific “style”: friendship bracelets and other random things strangling one arm , wearing the clothes you don’t care about getting dirty, big rainboots for easy access and to keep out mud. Here’s a little snippet of what I usually wore at camp. (My boots had holes in them and I had to throw them out.)
That’s about all I have to show you now. Just be sure to check for updates because I’m going to begin to post regularly again. As a “PS”, I am in the middle of sewing a skirt and I have just finished a bow and a belt. Here’s the belt.Eek! A few threads came loose!Details.
