1. Always be prepared for anything while camping.
I go camping almost every summer. It's a tradition and nothing new to me. I usually go with my dad, my aunt, and my two cousins who I am very close to. We sleep in a tent with sleeping bags and eat over an open fire. It's REAL camping that doesn't involve a camper or anything like that. I love it! Just a couple days with me, my family and nature.
|This was our tent. We do have a radio though.|
Well for some reason this camping trip was more eventful than usual. It was also more of a reality check. See my cousin is going off the college this week. He and I have been close ever since we where young and this might be the last year he goes camping with us. This trip was more of a "this is growing up" situation. It reminded me that we are going to be adults. It's a mixture of fear, sadness,and excitement.
That's not all this camping trip brought about. Okay we usually are bored while camping. We talk and walk around and maybe one memorable thing happens. However this year it was like the universe wanted it to be a camping trip to remember.
SO what happened in the 3 days we where there? My dad got stung by hornets on his foot, the bathroom where shut down so we had to use porter potty's and couldn't bathe, my cousin (the one going to college) got stung by a bee, it rained A LOT, and out of everyone in the tent I was the one that woke up the next morning soaked. I will say we did have a blast even though all this stuff happened. We will probably talk about it for years to come.
2. I like going to reggae concerts
I love music a lot. This is very obvious. Unfortunately I had never really been to a concert until this summer. The concert I went to was a reggae band and it was free (the main reason I went) See I like some bands that have been influenced by reggae but I never really got into reggae. Until I went and saw this band.

3.Who needs a relationship? I'm just here to have fun!Summer love, every girl I swear is looking for it. I, on the other hand did not find it. This was a bit of a downer at the beginning of the summer when I didn't even have a crush on a guy. Then somewhere along the way it didn't really bother me anymore.
|This made me chuckle|
I mean this stuff might have happened if I had a boyfriend but I don't think I would have felt the same way. So I just stopped being upset about not having a boyfriend and just letting things happen. It turns out that by doing this I ended up having fun.
So there is Part 1 of things I learned this summer. I hoped you enjoyed it. I don't know when I'll do part 2 but I swear it will be before summer ends!
Yours Truly~ grrrl in green.
