Day 1 About Me:
Hi, Im Emely. I'm beyond excited to be here and share many things with different people. When I first got here I was a little shy and I wouldn't talk much but I saw how fun my leaders were and I started to talk more and enjoy it more. It's amazing how different people share many things I do even if they live miles away. I've enjoyed meeting new people and learn something new about them. It teaches me a little more about everyone or how connected we really are dispite the distance. So far it was helped me get out of my comfort zone and reach out for more great experiences... Right on!
Day 2: The Challenge Course
Finding out that we were going to the Challenge Course was terrifying. From being completely positive I went to negative. Everything I thought was about how I wouldn't be able to do it because of my fear of heights. My legs would shake and I couldn't stay in place. I felt nervous, doubtful about myself, worried and scared. Seeing more and more of my teammates hopped on and came down with a huge smile and taking about how much fun it is, made want to just build some courage and give it a try. But then again my fear wrestled me down. Thanks to a great friend, Edie, I decided to go on the Cat Walk with him. Im glad he convinced me because I would've missed a great experience. Through out the ropes course/challenge I started to build up courage and confidence. Also, I began to enjoy it more and forget about my fear. It was a great experience. Afterwards, I felt pretty proud of myself because I didn't give up before even starting or after the "cat walk." Going to the Ropes/challenge course helped me get over my fear and do what I really want to try. I just wrestled the rope challenge down like a bear!
Day 3: Beach Trip
Going to the beach was an amazing experience. I enjoyed every minute of it, from going crazy in the vans to getting pushed in the water and just spending time with great friends. Everyone was so pumped and ready to have a blast. Bonding with everyone made me reach out to hear other people's stories and make good memories. :) I had loads of fun, I just wish this had never ended! But I know this won't end here! :)
