IUP SHP was incredible. The people were amazing. The classes were phenomenal. The campus was beautiful. I learned so much, from both an academic standpoint and a social one. I will value people and the time I have with them more. I will appreciate relationships better. This camp was perfect, but it isn't without regret. I did some crazy shit. I was confident. I sang at the show we put on. I ran around in the dark soaking wet behind the dorms. But I didn't let myself come on to a guy that I could have had that short-lived summer relationship with. A guy I could have invited to come over when I noticed him watching me dance. A guy I could have made an effort to speak normally to, not just exchange jokes and criticisms with. A guy that gave me a huge, tight hug on the last day as I was leaving. A guy that was actually really ADORABLE and didn't live that far AWAY. All because I was hung up on a guy that only saw me as a friend. But I learned from this experience, that's for sure. That's for sure. Kudos to me, because now I have hope.
Kudos to you, if you finished reading this:) later!xx
