Ego sum paper, Nihil habeo. Cor meum dabo.

Me, Beaker, and Crumbs at staff night out - bowling!

Mac, me, and Crumbs

Brisca, Loki, Crumbs and Me

I've been in a whole other universe for the past two weeks, without much contact with the real world. I've barely used my phone, and for the first time since I was 16, I can't tell you if it is charged or even on right now. I barely look at it. I've been at pre-pre camp, and then pre-camp, and tomorrow marks DAY ONE of actual camp- tomorrow the girls get there. I am nervous and really really excited. There is sooo much I could write about, but it's way too much and I don't know what would be boring and what wouldn't be!

The title to this blog is a song that we sing at camp. It's latin, there's three lines. They translate to:
Ego sum pauper= I am poor
Nihil habeo= I have nothing
Cor meum dabo= I will give my heart.
It's the prettiest song I have ever heard... it's sung in a round, it's amazingly beautiful. I want you all to hear it, I wish I could upload a file of all of the staff singing it... it makes my heart want to explode :)

I found out my unit placement - I'm staying in Birch Hollow this week, and my program is Outdoor Odyssey. I have 8-11 year olds, and basically we just do lots of OUTDOOR things!! I'm really excited - the first day we learn things about hiking, and the second day we go hike Mount Taminy (part of the appalachain trail). The third day we learn about canoeing, and the fourth day we canoe down the Delaware! I am sooo excited about who is running the program with me - two other girls, one is from Germany, the other is a Junior Counselor who's been at H**ver for a long time, so she knows lots :) I am in a leadership position on staff, so I am kind of in charge of my program/unit. Basically, for all you leaders out there - I'm on the "JStaff" of H**ver, only at camp , there's no Senior Staff, just a director and assistant directors. So there's the Leadership Staff, and then the director/ADs.

I haven't had any problems...some small problems adjusting and getting used to being around Em and not being able to talk to her how I normally do, but I am getting used to sleeping in a single bed again, all alone cocooned inside a sleeping bag, haha.

We barely get time off - well, actually we get a lot of time off, I'm not complaining- but if you think about it, I work around the clock 5 nights a week! Each week, every single counselor gets a "6-9" (Off from 6pm to 9am the next morning) and every single day you get 2 hours off. All of this is planned on Sunday night, so you know when your time off is. And then we have off every week from Sat. at 12 til Sun at 12 (or thereabouts).

There is so much more.. but it's hard to think of what to say! PLEASE SEND ME MAIL! I will love you forever, even if it's something silly and small... I get lonely sometimes, and everyone else gets so much mail !! I posted my address in my last post... I will love you forever until the end of time if you send me something, and I promise I will write back!! Also - I don't have anyone's addresses- so Maria, Laura, and anyone else who wants mail this summer, let me know what your address is!!!

I should probably go - I'm at Em's house for the day, and we're going to cook a real dinner tonight (thank god) because we've been eating basically cafeteria food for two weeks. (It's actually much better than cafeteria food..but you know how food bought in bulk's just...different.)

I miss and love you all,
write me mail, plleeeeeaaaasee!!!
Love Everywhere,

When doing this part of thе renovation, іt is advised to havе
a picked theme and stick to it so уοur bathroοm doesn't feel too cluttered or too 'busy'. As Devorah walks outside to the porch she says, "This is like Midnight Summers Dream meets the Madhatter. The bathtub curtain consists of various parts the top hem closest to the ceiling includes a series of on a regular basis spaced holes intended for the insertion of shower curtain rings and it have to be handled appropriately mainly because this component receives significantly of the every day strain of usage.

I can't exactly remember why--maybe it was peer pressure from our health-driven community, who knows. It should be spread onto the pizza stone or pan in a layer less than an inch thick, and then the squash crust will need to be baked for at least 20 minutes before putting toppings on it and baking again.

New mom and TV personality Cavallari takes up accessory design with shoe and jewelry lines It failed because Nike failed to realize just how advanced the other companies had made the skate shoes even though for the most part they were smaller companies than Nike, at least up until this point. By the time they had decided to release their design the technical designs had been the rage, and Nike had to work to adjust the Nike skate shoes to what the other companies where selling.. [url=][/url] One of the first things to take into consideration is the price. You do have to consider some relevant points when considering cost as the only factor. Almost all major shoe companies are making billion dollar yearly profits and all of their shoes are made overseas, often in the very same factories which are producing so called replicas, knock offs or fake shoes.

Satin or silk slingbacks provide a stunning look to your black evening dress.
