Hey everyone! Sorry it’s taken me a while to write you all. Thanks for those great comments on my last post!
Well last week, I finished my fourth week of summer camp. I’ve got one more week to go!
My first week of camp was an all high school intensive acting group. I can truthfully say it was the most intense camp I’ve ever taken.
The second week was a Pitch Perfect themed camp. The choreography was the most advanced I’ve ever done at any of these camps, and the vocals were as challenging as being back in advanced chorus!
The other thing about the Pitch Perfect camp is that it’s the first camp I haven’t been alone in. What that means is, my sister was also enrolled in the same camp. It was very different to have to share my week with her and also perform with her. Especially because she wouldn’t leave me alone the entire week!
I’ll admit, I didn’t want her there. Little sisters can be embarrassing and annoying, and personally I perceive everything my sister does as one of those two.
It took a lot to adapt to the fact that she was going to be in the same camp as I. And once I accepted that fact, I was even more upset about it.
She followed me around everywhere, sat next to me at lunch, had more friends than I did, and the instructors kept confusing us with each other.
She did everything better then I did too. She sang all the high notes, got the choreography down really fast, and came up with way more interesting improvisation skits then I did.
I was so sick of it.
But after spending so much time with her at lunch and with her friends, I came to the astounding realization that hanging out with my sister isn’t so bad.
Yes, she was the most embarrassing thing ever who wanted to tell every story about our family.
But I have to admit, having her there was sort of fun. Yup, I said it.
Being in the same performance for once was also kind of fun.
I guess the lesson I learned here is that being your little sister’s friend isn’t so bad after all. It’s just a very “interesting” experience.
Nonetheless, I enjoyed her company and at least we created some great memories together sharing and bonding (by the way, we’re in camp together this week as well 😉 ).
Do you have any siblings? Have you ever been in a class with them, or shared a summer camp experience with them? Have you ever felt annoyed about it? Or maybe discovered after some time that you do enjoy their company? Do share!
Until next time!
