I just had the best weekend in a very long time. It consisted of hammocks, tipping canoes, sand volleyball, bare feet, decorating a homemade stereo with fabric markers, s’mores, Spike Ball, friends with amazing music, Ultimate Frisbee, Sardines in the woods, talking about tattoos and piercings, awkward games, staying up ‘till 2AM worshiping Jesus around a camp fire, peeing my pants, playing cards in the back of the bus ride home, film cameras, studying Song of Soloman and learning about the Mountains of Bether, and getting to know my Lord and Savior even deeper and more personally. It’s been glorious, and memories have definitely been made. Friendships were started and others made stronger. It’s been amazing.
“Ah! realize your youth while you have it. Don’t squander the gold of your days, listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant, the common, and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals, of our age. Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing.”—Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
