Hello all! How was your Sunday? Y'all ready for the new week? :)
Here's the next post on our trip to North Carolina!
FIRST DAY OF CAMP. We woke up very early the next morning. AND IT WAS SOOOOOO COLD. I THOUGHT SOMEONE MOVED US TO A FREEZER.
Okay, she’s exaggerating there. Ok, fine. A fridge then. But it was very chilly when we woke up. (I didn't really believe it before, but yes, mountain air is cold. What's it like during the winter, I'd like to know? ;))Our window had been open all night, and I didn’t realize that until around 4 or 5 in the morning. Then I rather sleepily struggled to get the jammed window to close. That took awhile.
And she woke me up with “HELP ME WITH THIS WINDOW!!!”
Yeah, Tiger Lily finally decided to help me :P Hey, it was 5 in the morning!!!! Anyway, we went back to sleep, but we were still pretty cold. Our blankets weren’t the warmest to be honest, just a couple of flannel blankets that were a mite too small.
That’s what happens when you travel by plane and have to pack sheets, blankets, and pillow, not including clothes and stuff into a carry-on and a back-pack.
|Oh yes, and Tiger Lily did this pretty french braid on me for the morning.|
Okay Tiger Lily, now you say something.
ABOUT THE TRIP!! -_-
What kind of face is that? *looks at Blessing Counter while she makes this really really weird face at me*................I still don’t know what kind of face that is.
OH! BREAKFAST!!! It was SOOOO good. We usually don’t eat super fancy breakfasts, and at the cafeteria in the college, they had EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN YOU COULD WANT FOR BREAKFAST. I mean they had bacon, eggs, sausage, pancakes, waffles, DONUTS, hash browns, muffins, a ton of different kinds of fruit, french toast, yogurt, cereal, hot chocolate, coffee, juice, you name it! I’m hungry just thinking about it.
COFFEE XD My favourite part of breakfast! ;)
After breakfast, we all went to class. Tiger Lily was taking a pre-vet camp, and I was taking a Christian Music Jam one. SUPER FUN!
|My band composing our first song! :)|
Classes started at 9, then had a lunch break at 12, then started again at 1 until 3 in the afternoon. After that, all the students were taken on a mandatory campus tour, as well as a look into some of the courses that Lees McRae offered.
LOOK AT THAT GUY!!! THE FAKE GUY. I thought he was real. . . . . .
Yes, as I was saying, Lees McRae was showing some of the courses they had to offer and one of them was nursing. They had a mannequin hooked up to some stuff to illustrate some things. But a lot of people looked a little freaked out when they first saw the ‘man’. It blinked, peoples. BLINKED!!
Oh yeah, and then we went to a restaurant near the college for dinner. The food there was really good. I think there was chicken of some sort, and another kind of chicken. And mashed potatoes. WITH GRAVY. And that’s all I remember :P
There was a lot of stuff that we could do during free time, like rock climbing. We were both surprised and delighted to find out that they had a rock wall at the rec center, so we headed over there to do some climbing :D HOWEVER (of course there’s a story to something as simple as heading to a building :P)
Despite the campus tour we had taken the day before, we were still uncertain as to where to go to get to the recreational center, where the rock climbing was being held. We started walking down a road, but then after we started passing a couple cottages, we were fairly certain we had gone the wrong way. So we back tracked and I got distracted by this lovely flower and HAD to take a picture, all the while mourning over not bringing my camera. But the iPod took a pretty good picture, I guess ;)
Anyway, while I was taking the picture, we happened to see another Landry student. Tiger Lily had the brilliant idea of following him to the rec center. So we did, but as inconspicuously as we possibly could. Long story short, we managed to finally reach the rec center and did some rock climbing for awhile before heading back for dinner.
(I apologize for Tiger Lily’s absence; she’s currently watching Studio C and eating Doritos ;) But I’m not purposefully hogging the post :P )
Field night was a ton of fun, although we mostly just watched the other students play Ultimate Frisbee and soccer with two other girls we had met.
Ok, I’m back. :D
Oh, finally! Okay, you continue now.
Oh yeah, so we found someone’s frisbee and tried playing with it but for some weird reason none of us could catch it. Ever. It was probably the wind or something :P
Yes, of COURSE it wasn’t because we were all horrible at catching *rolls eyes*
No, of course not. So in the end, we gave up on that and found a soccer ball which we used to play catch with instead. That went a lot better - until we decided to try and catch it with one hand………..
Haha, oh yeah, that was fun!
Field night ended with this beautiful sunset.
And I guess we should probably end this post now too, before it gets too long! Hope you all enjoyed reading more about our trip :)
Ta ta!! (I’ve always wanted to say that :D)
