Look at the stars, look how they shine for You

I am so blessed.

Here I am in Estes Park, CO surrounded by some of the greatest people ever. I've had such a great time at training so far. Who knew I'd be back here in this place--physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

I took this yesterday:

Training is tiring but I'm not a freak-o like I was two years ago. I was such a ball of anxiety, but since I've already been through it, I know what to expect. I'm more chill now and I'm praying I stay this way all summer long.

My crew--amazing--three girls who I'm looking forward to getting to know them this summer. I just think we're going to work so well together. Anything is an upgrade from my last experience, but I truly believe I've been blessed with these people this summer.

OH! Here is where I'm going:

Ogden, Utah
Hobbs, New Mexico
Tishomingo, Oklahoma

Sweet huh? Nowhere near home, but then again, why do I need to go home?

call me norman 'cause I'm known to rockwell

I've been obsessed with online journals since I was 13. It's kind of embarrassing, but I love the thought of people reading my thoughts! I think it has to do with my fascination of The Diary of Anne Frank when I was little.

Nonetheless, this summer will be filled w
ith opportunities to share stories and thoughts and probably a million frustrations.

I still can't believe I chose to do Group Workcamp again. I'm thinking positive thoughts though--I'm much more mature and less in need of affirmation as I was two summers ago.

23 days until I'm in the Rockiessss!
