Groove Camp



Dear Blog,

I hated camp when I was a kid. No lie. One time at Girl Scout camp I awoke my dad from a deep slumber and convinced him that I had hypothermia and he needed to pick me up from camp, right now. And he did! Thanks Dad!! I never had to go back to Girl Scout Camp, yesssssssssss. So, I totally feel like I'm at camp right now back in Vancouver. There is a total of six of us here and they have us paired up in threes, all with roomies. It's kind of terrifying being around new people and all of the old insecurities that used to haunt me back in the day and I thought I had gotten over come rushing back; "Will they like me?," "Will they think I'm fat?," "Will they think I'm funny?" "Will they think I'm smart?" And there's an added layer of comparisons here because we're all yogis, and lead active and healthy lifestyles and so some people are afraid to admit they eat meat and are afraid their yoga practice is not as up to par as others. But, that's why it's called a practice, duh. Yesterday I was asked if I was a vegetarian and when I said no I was met with a truly disappointed, "Oh." Crazy huh? I love hot dogs too much to give up meat!!
Anyway, so I'm here for another week and a half and then I'm done with camp! Yay. I'll be a Groove camp graduate. My roomie is from Cleveland, OH and she's pretty funny and nice. She drew me very detailed instructions to a yoga studio because my "sense of direction scares her." I would say it scares pretty much everyone. It's awful. Take a look at the map though, I had to take a picture because I thought it was hilare. She way dumbed it down for me.


Anyway, Aaron is going to attempt to bring Bella across the border this weekend for some fam time in Canada.
That's all for now folks!
