It is not in the stars to hold our destiny

We've had bad luck with children; they've all grown up.

We've had bad luck with children; they've all grown up.

Just in case I'm unable to speak today, like....literally, physically unable....

YTE (or YSC, or whatever) has been one of the greatest experiences of my life, and has been something I've cherished and look forward to every summer.

Even with the drama, and the bullshit and the whatever, it was still an awesome experience.

These last few years have been so bizarre and have stretched  the capacity of what I thought this camp could be.

From the terrible to the mundane to the brilliant, I am thankful.

I started to think about starting my own camp, somewhere down the road. And these summers have given me so much to work off of. I have a better understanding of what I'd want to see occur in my own camp, and certainly what I wouldn't want.

I'm going to miss you all so much. Even if trips to Chicago are made or trips back down to bloomington....
it's still not the same. But I'll cherish any visits we may have!

I know a lot of you are moving on as well.....good for you. It's bittersweet and strange to say goodbye, but find new things. Find new camps (should you choose) and new people. You'll always have YTE, and no one can ever replace you.

I hope I've given you all something. I hope I've made some  impact on your life somehow....even if you just remember me as this bitchy, short counselor.....(no, seriously, I hope that's NOT how you'll remember me)

and I hope I've done more than just provide you with costumes every year :)
as fun as that aspect is and was.....

I love you. Thank you for coming back, year after year. And thank you for making such an impact on my life.
I'm truly grateful and amazed and impressed and proud of you all.

much love
