Ten: TDC 15

It's 3 in the morning. Good morning! Time to update you on the happenings of... CAMP. 
To say that I enjoyed it would be a rather short and brief answer to say the least. Then again, as a long answer I could write you a book. Just to let you know, this was not one of those 'its-a-school-holiday-so-mum-shall-sign-you-up-for-every-possible-holiday-program-that-may-or-may-not-be-just-exploiting-you-of-not-only-your-time-but-also-your-money' situations. I went voluntarily. After my first experience of a camp that my parents didn't organise (which I had blogged about and carelessly forgot to click on the "publish" button but I remembered now, and you can read it HERE) I decided that I enjoyed the whole experience and would actually want to go again. I decided to call some friends to come with me, for it would guarantee way more fun that way. So almost all of us from the camp my parents organised came. When our forces combine, we have the ability to be a riot.
Because I had an audition to go to, I came late and conveniently avoided the awkward "Day 1" silence when nobody really talks to each other. First thing I had to do was to stick my face into a tray full of flour to get candy using only my mouth. Having my picture taken made it even more disconcerting. Okay, maybe I am overreacting a little. It was all really for good fun though.
Over the next few days, (inevitably) I had a lot of fun. And just like the other camp (if you haven't read my previous post...) it was packed full of activities. Puja and meditation was brief, and I really disliked meditation before this camp. I always found myself wandering corners of my mind during meditation that I didn't want to go to or getting distracted easily. Much to my surprise, I enjoyed this session quite a lot actually. We were instructed to visualise metta, or loving kindness as a light instead.
I made many new friends and many wonderful memories. I am so incredibly grateful to the committee and organisers for this camp, because I don't think I would be who I am now without these experiences.
