SLEEPAWAY



written by a 10 year old:


Wish Jezebel had posted this list at the Beginning of summer!!  I'm not sure who the original author of this "cool" list was, but I kind of want to give him a hug and tell him not to think so hard. . . 


My first experience with sleep away summer camp wasn't until middle school.  I was a total homebody as a kid but somehow, at age 12, my parents got me to agree to a 6 day sleepover camp in New Hampshire. . . Below is my first mildly-traumatizing postcard to my mom.  She was at an artist's workshop at the same time and had sweetly pre-self addressed and stamped the postcard for me.  






After filling my mom in on the details of my first day at camp I then recorded every horrible moment in my diary.  Oh the emotion!!
  




Needless to say, by day 3 I was having the time of my life.




Sleepaway camp isn't complete without Tiger Beat's Devon Sawa and Jonathan Taylor Thomas!!

Oh Molly! I'm laughing at my desk at work reading this. I love the part in the postcard where, after recounting how much you don't like camp, you ask your mom, "how's your camp? Mine sucks."Poor thing. So glad I'm not a teenager any more!
