zondag 25 juli 2004

Hi there. I'm on the computer again, even though I'm not really supposed to be, because I'm playing truant during the Sunday service (like a church service). Since I'm an atheist, I've never felt comfortable with the religious side of the camp - the blessings, the Serenity Prayer every morning, etc. I just stay silent throughout most of it, but the Sunday service is unavoidable; it's not optional. I really think it should be - I mean, we have Jewish campers here too, and they feel pretty out of place there as well - but it isn't. They insist that the service is 'non-denominational' and that it's not religion-specific, but all the counselors agree that that's a load of bull. So I decided to take my own silent 'stand' this time and just not go. What's the worst that can happen?

They should be out any minute, so this will be short, but I just decided to type out a quick note, for lack of anything else to do. Hilltop (the oldest girls in camp) had a dance last night with one of the boys' camps, but I was able to wiggle out of that by volunteering to 'babysit' those girls who didn't want to go. 3 down, 2 to go. They're Wednesday and Saturday. I'm off Wednesday, but not Saturday. Oh well. I'm off tomorrow too, and Mariel, Vanessa, Haley, and I are going to an outlet mall in Greenville and then to El Paso (I'm definitely getting whatever that was that Ernie got last time, with the cheese sauce and sour cream - it was a lot better than my too-spicy enchiladas!)

12 more days of camp, and 13 more days till Martin gets here! :)
