Today has been brought to you by…

Today has been brought to you by hiking up two mountains

Today has been brought to you by cinnamon – America loves it!! This makes me happy

Today has been brought to you by cuddles from newfound friends

Today has been brought to you by finding comfort you never realized you needed in these cuddles

Today has been brought to you by motherfucking WIFI (which I realize I often misspell as wife… but that’s okay. Society seems to be married to technology)

Today has been brought to you by legalizing gay marriage in ALL FIFTY STATES IN AMERICA (yes, it’s been a few days, but I’m still super pumped for the LGBT community)

Today has been brought to you by finally getting my head around American camp culture… well, kind of. I’m learning.

Today has been brought to you by Taylor Swift songs and High School Musical – because that pretty much sums up the lifestyle of camp culture

Today has been brought to you by realizing that no one actually knows who I am here, which is both refreshing and strange

Today has been brought to you by introducing strangers to Static Era while hiking the Appalachian Trail

Today has been brought to you by paranoia about spiders and ticks… and bears

Today has been brought to you by having a kick ass team of trip leaders that I’m lucky enough to be working with this summer

Today has been brought to you by living six months of summer – sorry New Zealand!

Today has been brought to you by paranoia about how ridiculously sugary and unhealthy much of the American diet is

Today has also been brought to you by doing kick ass crossfit and hiit workouts every morning… and that’s BEFORE spending the entire day hiking

Today has been brought to you by lack of sleep

Stress

Embracing a completely new culture, and still catching myself using Maori words midsentence because the English language – for all its glory – is still lame

Today has been brought to you by lovely text messages

Today has been brought to you by driving on the right side of the road

Today has been brought to you by challenging myself, and knowing that even when it’s difficult, the personal growth that I will achieve this summer is going to be incredible

Though what I’ll do for work after this… who the heck knows?

Today has been brought to you by love.
