Tomorrow morning (or today, by the time most of you will read this), I will be leaving at 5am to get to camp. It’s going to be a long first day. I’m in charge of Support Staff this year, I guess that means I’ll be running around making sure everyone is supported.
Anyway, my posts will probably be sparse, though that’s hardly abnormal for me as I haven’t been posting as often the last several weeks. I’ve just found myself extremely busy with summer stuff. In fact, I find the summer to be the most crazy time of year for me. I think most people see the summer as relaxing or a chance to take some vacation. For students it’s a time to “veg out”, stay up late and then sleep in. Not for me. Summer is the one time a year when students are most available, most bored and most under challenged. I try to capitalize on this time by scheduling as much time as I can with students. I want to make the most of their free time and try to utilize it for some relationship building, encouragement and fun.
So that’s the long version of why I haven’t been as regular with my posts. I just haven’t had the time to sit down and come up with something everyday. In a few weeks when the summer starts to slow down, I expect things will go back to normal.
But before that, I’ve got to make it through this next week of camp.
