great experience... met kids from all over the country... It was the first time that I learned that time limited relationships with females are sometimes the least complicated and best remembered...
It was also my first real exposure to people from the south and remember everyone being friendly... When I was at the nashville airport on the way to huntsville I dropped $50 (alot for a 7th grader, and my emergency cash for the trip)... and this african american man was yelling at me... "Sir!" and I was like who is he talking to? then he started walking over to me and I got a little scared and he was like "Sir!"... "You dropped your money" and handed the cash to me...
The teacher/chaperone told me over and over through out the trip that what happened was not typical for that situation and that it was a one in a million chance luck... perhaps what he was saying was true or not, but after hearing it a dozen times it got annoying
Yeah dude...interesting experience for sure. Yeah, I too originally thought the swimming trunks were for showering but they were for the underwater pool thing
I really enjoyed building the rockets and launching them off. But I remember the food being AWFUL, like the pizza crust was actually a tortilla
But I remember this one kid named Truitt, he was a red head, freckly, scrawny obnoxious little person and always got in trouble for eating too many waffles and too many pieces of pizza and drinking too much soda because it made him super hyper lmao
ahhhhh good times
