Camp Life 101

Welcome to summer camp, future counselor! Here are a few tips – 

1. You’re going to get a camp nickname. Embrace it. Just imagine yourself as Wasabi from Big Hero Six…

(Incidentally, my camp nickname is Kindle.) 

 

2. Walking, running, jumping…you’ll be doing it all! However, you’ll also be eating camp food which is chalk full of carbs. The camp life isn’t as healthy as you’d think.

3. To be a good counselor:

YAS Mulan/BH6 crossover

 

4. This is how you and your fellow counselors actually look:

“ Phone Backgrounds → Big Hero 6 ”

But this is how campers see you:

Big Hero 6

Embrace it!

 

5. Some campers are going to love you. Others…less so.

Of course this would happen... I don't know who to feel sorry for though, baymax or rocket...

Regardless, love them all!

Tastefully Offensive on Tumblr, briannathestrange: Baymax from ‘Big Hero 6’ is...

 

6. Sometimes camp life is like this:

I just saw this movie, and this guy is awesome!

But it quickly becomes….

Big Hero 6

Be flexible. 

 

7. Always follow the Rule of 3 – never be alone with a camper. It gives you better odds when running from a bear

 

7. Camp life can be exhausting…

Big Hero 6 = Love.

And a little bit crazy

I love crazy! Big hero 6 Hiro and Hanz Literally died laughing xD

But it is always worth it!


Triggered Memes

I recently started seeing a new type of meme on Pinterest and it seriously cracks me up. According to knowyourmeme.com

“Trigger” is a term referring to any stimulus that evokes the memory of a traumatic event or episode. While the word is most commonly used in the context of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), it has been since adopted by those in the social justice blogosphere to refer to any topical issue that is deemed contentious or debatable, and to a lesser extent, the term has been also re-appropriated as an ironic term used by their detractors to criticize certain issues that may be seen as too trivial or irrelevant to discuss in length.” 

Here are a few of my new favorites:

She better NOT do this to Tom!:

Literally my dog whenever she hears that word:


A Day to Laugh

Since it is April 1st, I feel like I ought to have prepared a glowing review of Twilight or The Communist Manifesto or something. Unfortunately, I didn’t think that far ahead. This is, however, a day to laugh so please enjoy a few funny memes I found on Pinterest:

Disney Princesses and Underrepresented Hair Colors

I am taking my youth group girls to see the new Beauty in the Beast movie in a few weeks and I feel like this calls for a serious conversation about hair. 

Now in general, I feel redheads are vastly underrepresented in pop culture. However, my sister was ranting the other day about the lack of brunette princesses, and I think she makes a very legit point. Take a look at this:

5 of these princesses have black hair. Three have blond hair. Two have red hair. Only one is a brunette!  

Add in Anna and Elsa…

We have 5 black haired princesses, three blonds, three redheads, one brunette and one sort of blond sort of white haired ice Queen.

Now, there are a few less popular/not recognized Disney leading ladies who are brunettes, like Jane. (Actually, just Jane. I just looked it up and Megara is supposed to have auburn like hair.) And anyway, at the same time, you add another red head, another blond, and another black haired princess.

No matter how far you expand…

And who you include…

Brunettes really only have one good princess…

And that is Belle!

Laura

I have made an amazing discovery. My favorite movie, Laura (1944), was first…A BOOK! 

36 Epic Faces From Jensen Ackles:

.:

I know! I am so excited. From what I can tell on Goodreads, the book is even better than the movie! Which isn’t too surprising, but you can never be too careful with your favorite movie. 

I currently have so many books checked out from the library that I’ve banned myself from getting more, otherwise I would have had this book on hold in seconds. As it is, this news has got me like..

Literary Fernweh As A Picture

Several years ago I wrote a blog post about Literary Fernweh. The post is so long it makes me laugh! I saw this image today, however, and it made me think of it. Literary Fernweh: A love for, and a wish to be, in a place that only exists in a book! It is such a beautiful feeling. 

Homesick for places you've never been and people you've never met:
