One More Day

I sort of find it hard to believe that I'm leaving for camp tomorrow afternoon. It seems like the closer I get to tomorrow, the less it sinks in that I'll be away from home for twelve whole days. And as I mentioned in my last blog entry, I've been to this camp before, so I know what to expect and I don't think there will be many differences this time around.
Sure, I'm in a different cabin than I was last year (my new cabin is a lot closer to central camp, so I don't have to walk around as much in order to get to all of my classes and such), but that's probably the only remarkable change. It's pretty much a guarantee that I'll be in the chamber choir again because I was more than good enough to be in it last year and I've gotten exponentially better since then. And I'm taking Musical Theater as a minor, same as last year. And no new buildings or cabins or anything have been added to the camp, so the layout is the same and I still remember my way around somewhat decently (I'm still using a map, because God knows that sometimes I forget things even if I'm sure I know them. )
I wonder if the friends I made last year are going to come back. Granted, most of them were my cabinmates and the chances of any of us being in the same cabin again are very slim, but I might still see them around camp once in a while. And then I have some friends from school who are going. One is an Orchestra major, and the other was in chamber choir with me; they're both two of my best friends from my school's choir, although the latter just graduated and will be going to college this fall. And then I met this one guy who was in the chamber choir and my Musical Theater minor. I heard he's going to camp again, but I'm not sure. Still, I'll be happy to see him again because he's fun to talk to and he's a good singer. Although I think last year he had a crush on me, so if he still likes me, he might be bummed to know I have a boyfriend now. Sorry, dude, I can't help it if I'm in love.
Which reminds me, I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but I really miss my boyfriend a lot. Since I went to my friend's grad party all afternoon yesterday and I didn't get home until about 10:00, and my boyfriend went to a concert with his little brother, we didn't get to talk to each other at all...Although we Yahoo! Messengered each other for about 5 hours on Saturday night until it was past midnight yesterday morning. It was really hard to say goodbye to him, so I kept stalling so I could make our chat longer. But eventually we decided we couldn't delay it much longer and we said goodbye. He was on my mind all day yesterday. I still had a ton of fun at the party though, because my friends would poke me to make me laugh or do something else to cheer me up the second I started feeling sad. I still miss him, especially because today he is going to visit his grandma for a week; I don't know if he's left yet, but I know that we won't get to talk to each other either way because I have a ton of packing to do and errands to run before I leave tomorrow. I hope he has a lot of fun on his adventures as I know I will on mine. And when we see each other again, it'll be a very happy reunion.
Now that I'm thinking positively again, I'm really looking forward to camp. Last year, it made my summer the best one I've ever had, and I have a feeling that this year will be even better. Seeing old friends, making new ones, leaving best friends behind but being overjoyed to see them again when I come home. And I get to learn more about music, my love and passion. Nothing makes me happier than getting to sing for people and make them happy. When I come home from camp, I'll be a little bit older, a little bit wiser, and very ready to tackle the world again.
