A camper stole my phone and took a picture of me.

Some cool kids, Judd and Alex. Alex is actually one of my favorite kids. He's the one on the right with the blonde hair and dreds. I met him last summer at camp. He was homesick and I was pretty much the first person to talk to him and made him feel better, he was attached to my hip the rest of the week at camp. He came back this summer and we hung out again. That kid makes me want to get more involved with the kids that I work with and he makes me want to find some sort of job where I have the opportunity to become a part of a kid's life in a more meaningful way. Hanging out with him just made me happier at camp and I know he was really psyched to hang out with me too. He's also a really good guitar player.

Now that I'm done with summer camp, I don't know what to do next. I'm in California right now hanging out with friends and sorta skating. My toe is hurty so the skating part is sorta sucking because I can't really do much without my toe aching inside of my shoe.

I'm super nervous about going back to Arizona and not being able to find a job. Last winter I was lucky to work 8 hours a week and I was pretty broke the entire time. Working at camp is such a good escape from real life. You don't have to worry about rent, food, and where you're going to skate at all for the entire summer. And then when you get out, it's like being let out of prison, you don't know what normal life is like.
The summer flew by really quick it seems. If I think of specific things or certain kids that came to woodward in the beginning of summer, then it seems like forever ago, but the summer as a whole went by so quick. I could easily spend more than 11 weeks there if I had to. A lot of people seem burnt out towards the end of summer, but I have a pretty good set up there and I don't have many complaints about being there.

Now it's on to other things for a while, I've been looking online to try to find a job in Arizona where I can keep working with kids, but so far nothing has come up. I hope that this winter I can get on some more Woodward marketing trips or find some cool job where I get to play with funny kids or both.
