I just started my new semester at college. yuk! I've only had one class so far, poly si. For those of you who have no idea what that means basically it is a government class. It seems like it will a fun class. Except for the part of getting up in the morning.
I think it's interesting that no one really writes on the community any more. oh well.
I have been thinking about this summer. I have an oppertunity to work at the day camp I worked at last year but I don't know if I should or if I want to.
I just started driving about a month ago. And anyone who does not have to learn how to drive in LA is lucky. It is sooooooooooo scary. It doesn't help when your mom yells at you not to hit the parked cars. Anywho I have to go to my next class, Mass Communications, hopefully it will be fun.

miss camp alot today for some reason. For those of you that dont really know, I'm not going back this year, but will hopefully return for my last year, I say hopefully because I'm really not sure yet. I'm taking a year off so I can see Jen Campbell from 2003, and so she can work at Camp Adventure and be with me in Kansas. We've been planning for months in advance, her and I are going to come and visit the campground though. It's going to be wierd going there this summer and not staying, and only staying for a few hours. Taing a year off always confuses me and I feel so out of place. It took a good 2 years to finally get used to Hobbes and Katydid.. oh well, I'll live. At least I'll be home for the MMMC anivs. 7/25/02 I was so down my first year without them, I went into cabin 5 my first year and sat on my old bed and looked at pictures. My favorite place in camp is the benches outside the cabin some days I would sit there just waiting on people and thinking of all the great things that have happened to me here. I especially miss camp more during the night because for me at night it was just you and the one campette saying goodnight or whatever. For these last few years nights have stood to be very special because a campette would somtimes come and sing me to sleep, for that hour and or whatever.. its the one bond. The one time she takes you under her wing and does what a big sister does when your sick or not able to sleep and for someone like me that doesnt have a sister it means alot.
Come stop your crying it'll be alright, just take my hand hold it tight. I will protect you from all around you, I will be here dont you cry. For one so small you seem so strong, my arms will hold you keep you safe and warm. This bond between us cant be broken, I will be here dont you cry. Cuz you'll be in heart, from this day on, now and forever more. You'll be in my heart no matter what they say, you'll be here in my heart... always
Leaving camp is always hard for me, because its more like 2nd home to me. Some years are harder than others but always hard. No matter the year I always have someone to say goodbye to. The one person my parents have to use the jaws of life to detatch me from, and even sometimes cant do it. If you know me really well I normally dont cry on the last day of camp but I cried in 2002 my fair share. My dad picked me up that morning he was going around taking pictures with his new camera and meeting all the girls. When it came around to Ann, Adrie, Emy and I to get our pictures done I knew at that exact momment that it was ending that we would go back home and this would be left as a memory, I then started bawli. With littng (what great timing during the picture Cheryl?) Adrienne tickled me to get the tears stopped for a fww seconds and then we 4 hugged and as I went around and hugged the 3 of them all on my own that was the hardest goodbye I've ever had to make. As I walked back to the truck, I looked over my shoulder As Adrie said bye, and hey... Cheryl! my real name is Adrienne.. I chuckled and climbed in the truck realized that my bottle wasnt with me and made my dad go to the dining hall to get it I sat there all by myself crying. Little did I know 5 months later it would happen again.
I love you all

Hey guys, my Dad worked on The Aviator and his department got a nomination. So everyone should watch the Oscars and root for the movie. My dad's department is Art Direction. So hopefully they will win. He also got interviewed by people magazine, but i don't know if he will be quoted or not. It's just really cool that he got interviewed. The oscars are on Feb. 27. Watch and cross your fingers.

Good Ol' Cabin 9
2004- Cabin 9 2nd session Cathrine, Kasey, Sam, Cheryl, Christine, Lynna, Katy... AKA T"THE BANNED CABIN"
When you put 7 typical girls in a cabin what do get?
"some kind of craziness"
These group of girls are possibly the best people and campers I know. We had such a good time together. Especially at night and during rest hour. We put a girl on a roll away (Christine) and EVEN the top bunk (Cathrine) I dont think I've ever laughed that much in one session in my life. We loved getting mail and decorating our cabin. We had our own privite dressing cornor for swimsuit changes. We had hott guys around our beds (Kevin, Manny, an Ian) that we would kiss every night before we layed down for hours of talking and laughing. My mail was always the most, I EVEN got pakg. that my other half (Christine) was oh so happy for me, she was my reading letters assistant. We loved to talk, thats for sure! We talked about happy times, bad times, people at home, home in general, real food, campettes from past years, campettes from this year (faves and non-faves,) boyfriends, music, and friends. Christine and Cathrine we're our jokers, Lynna and Cheryl we're the laughers, Sam and Kasey we're the random thinkers, and Katy was the mother. Every night was like a big slumber party, depending upon the person sleeping in that night. Twiggy and Sunshine sleeping in the first night was interesting when of course "the other halfs" had to pee, at 1AM in the morning. Christine and I making the biggest sceene possible ALWAYS AND FOREVER. Sleeping in always carried some type of adventure, for the two of us. Sleeping in campettes wern't always fun an exciting, we had our share of campettes that were so mean to us, but not only, did we get it once in one week BUT 3 TIMES!!! from Duckie!!! When Bounce got sick one night and was unable to join our fun it screwed the entire schdule up (we hold nothing towards Bounce for this) Although we we're still random an annoying just to piss Duckie off.. we do it ALL FOR THE LOVE! After the first few nights of this behavior our U.C., Glowie was not that happy with us, at this point in the week all the campers, core-staff, and campettes had complained of us being "too loud at night" Nothing changed, and we still became known as the "loudest cabin ever." Not only did we talk and have fun slumber parties, but we took care of each other (awwwww.) My episodes became frequent due to some "woman problems" the cabin was everso lovely about taking care of me, with this making sure I was drinking right and always taken care of at night. This cabin didnt split for anything. Everywhere we went we we're together at least 3 of us we're together. One of my funniest memories is trying to fit Christine, Kasey, Sam, Cathrine, and I all on a float (and then trying to show a sun tanning flipper on the side of the pool) We did! it took the entire swim period but we had so much fun! (I know this is a play-off a memory in 02, and yes bigger rafts=more people!) We even slept in the craft gazibo together. We talked on cell phones, talked to people, braided hair, and listened to music. The idea of braiding hair also brought wonderful "campette costomers" as the 24 hr. braiding Cathrine. We took in so many girls, this way we got to know alot about the girls and what they were like. As with every great cabin, it brought problems. The more girls we were sceduling to come in to get their hair done, the more Rover bitched. This was supossdly done to the point where girls were neglecting jobs and such. We even had company on off-hour braiding hair days. Some of the famous visitors were Tiger, Sunshine, CoCo Bounce, Koda, GiGi, Fantasy, Slide, Twiggy, Duck, Sheep, an amoung many others. Nights full of funny lits, night dresses, jokes, goodnight hugs&talks, sometimes 9 campettes in one cabin. We loved rest hours too, wheather we had to pee or not! waiting on showers that we so desired. And even to the point of taking it where no camper has gone before! SHAVING!!!! Food was another love of cabin 9's and we even managed a food party on the last night of the session with Koda. We mastered the art of screaming through windows 7 little tiny voices scream "GOODNIGHT FLIPPER WE LOVE YOU!!!!" on the last night as we maintain our reputation as the "LOUDEST, MOST BANNED CABIN EVER" as the staff yells "GOODNIGHT GIRLS."
Well.. the week ended with most of camp not even allowed to touch our cabin, most days at least. I personally had some of the greatest times in my life with the girls "I LOVE YOU, FOR REEEEEAL"
What to do with Trevor.....
Ok....so what in the hell do i do....m y best friend introduced me to this guy who is her bf and yea....it is not funni...now he is always hiting on me when we are togther even if she is with us....GOD....i dont know what to do and i dont want our friendship of like 10 yrs to end...but i really like this guy...uuuggghhhhh...what the hell y in the hell does life have to be so damn screwed up....i hate this and ugh i just hate it...if u all want to try and help i will try and get on sometime soon.....luvs me to all u j low kiddies.....lol...forman oooouuuutttt!!!!!!

1 Current Mood: bitchy
I thought of another memory while talking to cheryl. In 03 after square dance when we had all camp swim, less then half of the counslers were in the pool. Turtle, Elf, and I decided, that because nobody else was getting in and only the wheelchair girls had counslers, even though the three of us didn't have our swim suits, we pushed each other in the pool with all our colthes on. And all the girls thought it was funny because we pretended to throw each other in. But then when I went up to cheryl in the pool she told me she could see my bra, I looked down and then remembered I was wearing my red and black bra which you could see right through my 02 camp shirt. It was reaaally cold that night and I had to sleep in the outpost that night. But the three of us had alot of fun.

oh my gosh!!!
Well hopefully you guys have been watching the news today. If you didn't know where I lived before you should now. The train derailment happened in my city, but on the other side of the city. I think what that gut did was uncalled for. If he wanted to kill himself there are other ways. Anyway a memory from camp ummmmmmmmmm... I think it would have to be singing to Bridget when she was upset or any other time during camp. I was the only campette in my patrol to know a lot of show tunes or disney songs. But I loved every minute of it.
Tracy aka Rosemary Current Mood: okay

Since I'm head mod here, I think I should go first!! This wont be too long promise!
1997: My first day campette was oreo A.K.A. Stacey I still talk to her today, she is from Rhode Island. I was 9, and she taught me how to swim, and that was the first year of the rest of my life. I love water, and now I know how to float and do all that cool stuff in water, because of her. I know this isnt my first day, but I met a girl by the name of Pooh, her real name is LaRissa we havent spoke since I left, she was just so caring and my favorite persom out of all of them, she would do my hair every moring she loved to comb it (I had REALLY long hair when I was little.) I remember sitting on everyone's lap and such back then I was the youngest and littlest and I stayed that way for 2 years.
1998: My first day campette's name was Greencow, because of a little green-spotted stuffed cow she still slept with, even though she was 16, and even let me sleep with it a few times when I would be sad or something hurt (you'll learn I never ever got homesick, untill 2003? when I had the computer and all the people I wanted back wernt, so I rarely became homesick with anything.) We had a great time together, and I loved her alot, her real name was Kate, her and I talked back and fourth for about a year.. before we just lost touch. I loved the slumber party that year too, I met people like Joslynn, who had Spina Bifida, who is now about 20 and a few other girls. we talked and talked about people that got on our nerves much like we all do today, especially the one girl Snicker from NYC *GAG* anyways.. My first day was from D.E. I also remember Joy and JJ's friendship.. it was great
2001: I skipped 2 years, because I had surgery and the docs ordered me no phyical activity which sucked beyond expression. I came back to a surprised, but happy about the change atmosphere. Here it becomes more recent for alot of you. I had the best patrol ever, but not always the best campette, this is the age where I'm starting to get a feel for those I did like and those I didnt cuz if I didnt like you you could tell. My patrol was great. Hobbes was my PC and taught me alittle bit of sign with having trica in the patrol I had glowie who was AWESOME! and yeah... I met my best friend from that year, Katie also known as monkey. I kept having episodes up the wazoo and I was sick like no other she stayed by my side through every tear and every supid frog song in the book! I love her so much... and I wouldnt trade her ever. She took a major slap in the face or bad evoulation for me.. and thats more then a girl could ever ask for.
2002: OK as you all head from a few people yes, 2002 is my fave year of them all to sit and gawk about.. I love it with all of me. This was my first year staying 2 sessions and expircing "campette homesickness" 1st session I had a girl named Tigerlily also known as Beth she went home early so alot people dont remember her. I broght allie with me also that year, and had the best U.C. Kelly O'Rouke!!! also know as Katydid... AWESOME AWESOME person, my patrol was the greatest I loved them so much. Rosemary with her hyperness, Buzzer with 2 places at once ET and the polish and Sci-fi with Skiffy! and Lita' my best friend in P4 for life, she's still like a sister to me today. Every campette loved you, and if they didnt they didnt bother you too much so it wasnt really a problem and you had some girl ALWAYS to take your side, because we all got along for the most part. My favorite part is all my Triple MC memories..ALL of you have heard of them at some point and time wheather its by real or camp names. I love espeally 2 of my girls from the group so very much.. we've been friends for 2 years and six months to the day=1/25/05 We have an incrediable bond thats held a long time and my time with them that summer wont ever be forgoton. I dont think I cried as much as I have ever on my last day that morning I went up to upstate NY 5 months later... and cant wait to see my best friends again.. wouldnt trade a single moment.
2003: I'll be honest this wasnt my best year it was *bleck* in my opnion although I did get a girl as a PC that I wouldnt trade for the world and 4 fabulous ppl as PCs that I wouldnt trade ever... they were my backbone and I cherished every moment with them. Although I sometimes never treated them as I should I've appoligized and all 4 of us are good as gold, and back to being best friends, some closer then others but yes, I met my first day campette Skitt also known as Mindy and she was of the best ever.. I've ever had in the history of girls as first days ever. She took care of me so well and reminded so much of my girls back home, it was an awesome feeling. Snap and Yazzir I love those 2 so much...... they are great with me they teach me so muvh it was like having the girls back all over again.
2004... I'll have to do tomarrow sorry girls!
If I leave here tomarrow would you still remember me?
|Monday, January 24th, 2005|
I was thinking today and i know i didnt ask cheryl but oh well..lol...but i thought it would be fun if we all wrote an entry about what we liked the most about camp...if any of us can remember what happen at camp that year...who was your first day campes/campette and fun things like that....so yea have fun with this say whatever you want :)

I'm cheryl, Everyone knows me usually... I gain a nicknmame every year i go to camp, so yeah... 2002 was the best year of my life, no buts there!! i am of course the infamous camper of them all. I love camp alot, its changed my life completely everything I do revolves around it ask anyone and everyone! I used to live in Kansas City but now I live in a small town near Lee Summit, I love having the comm. because I havent heard from some people in a long time because of the move. But then there are the people I cant live my day without talking to, and we all know who those ppl are! if you know anyone else from camp that I dont know or havent got to yet let them know we'd love to have them......

Hey guys, My name is Tracy Potter, aka Rosemary. I was a campette (campettes are better then counslers)in 2002, and a PC in 2003. But 02 was better, just ask cheryl. I live in Glendale, CA. Which is about 15 to 20 minutes away from LA. I loved the whole JLow experience but i guess its just time to move on with life. But I love this idea of the community, even though i don't post on things that often. But maybe this will make me post more.
Rosemary Current Mood: depressed
This is for all of those who are campers, counselors, or PC, UC, UL.
hahaha! when i first read that...i was like...what about campettes? hahah...wow! Talk about dumb! *laughs* but i guess us "campettes" just arent as good as you "counselors"! *laughs* j/k! ;)
