It took me so long to get around to making this page that I can't remember most of what
happened. After I got back from China I had some time to kill before what
ever else I would do with myself, so I decided to get a job at a summer
camp. That way I could enjoy the outdoors while still making money.
Due to bad planning, I took a job in California. The problem was that I
lived in Alabama, which is far away. I ended up spending almost all the
money I had earned getting there and back. But it was a good experience,
even though when I was there it was a nightmare. The job was at a very
small, private summer camp run by a retired man. He was the worst
stereotype of a grumpy old man, mean conservative Republican, and had a hot
Irish temper. He blew up at everything and made the kids cry. I
probably would have walked off but I had so much invested in the trip.
There were only a hand-full of kids at the camp and there was nothing to do, so
it was pretty dull. Still, I had some good oportunities to think and
meditate, and it was good to be outside all the time.
hadn't driven for over a year, so it was great to get out on the open road for a
part of the whole summer.
camp was generally a bad experience, but it did have some good moments.
