(unlikely dreams)

donderdag 13 mei 2004

And I hate, hate, HATE the fact that neither of the camps have e-mailed me back yet. I always answer e-mails right away (even if I can't always SEND them right away, because of the router) and I really hate it when other people are not as courteous. I need an answer from them before I can book a flight home...

To update you guys: the director of that camp I mentioned called my house (in Jacksonville) and talked to Mom and said he really wants me, since they need lifeguards, but says I have to come for the full eight weeks, not just four. Which means I'd have to be there on, like, the 14th of June. Which, needless to say, I don't want to do. In theory it could work - my classes are technically over on the 8th even though I'm supposed to stay until 2 July - but can we say RUSHED? I'll be in Paris that weekend so I would have to fly home with Faith on the morning of the 13th, which means I wouldn't even have time to unpack.

So I gave him an ultimatum, saying I really wanted to do it, but I couldn't unless I could be there a few days or a week later. We'll see what he says. Mom and I don't expect that he'll give it to me, so I e-mailed Ton-A-Wandah to see if they could squeeze me in for the July and August sessions (beginning 27 June - yeah, that's better). This will be my eighth year and I don't think they'd say no to me, even if they were swamped for staff, but the downside is that I'd earn almost $1000 less than at the new camp. Oh well. One gives more money, the other gives more time... both good, right? :)

...So ANSWER ME!!!
