    I like how in both pictures of me I’m either sailing through the air in Courtney’s arms or yelling at Becca to give me back my gin. Very indicative of my entire camp experience, really.

    OMG! I can’t! This post just made my night! I cannot wait to see the rest of them! Also, #13 Almost made me pee my pants laughing so hard! And I love how Somer is so confused about the streamers in almost every photo. Hahaha

    And in #13 you will see the reason why I felt the need to keep watch in our bunk at night…damn shark. I felt so disappointed in myself when I’d promptly fall asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. I’m so good at pranks, obviously. COLOR WARS!

    P.S.
    My roommate is very thankful for that vegan apple cider. +whiskey
