Today and Yesterday were grand!

yesterday was Hollywood day and we had spectacle and watched the zombie/sifi movies we had made a couple days ago.
My group had a good premise: Aliens capture all the boys in the world and the girls fight the aliens and save humanity. Girl Power.
But I was silly and recorded it on a strange setting and everything was recorded in high speed with no sound...oops. It looked super cool so I went with it, and the programs we have to edit are to primitive to slow them down. I told the girls in my group what happened and they were totally sad, but when they saw it, I'm pretty sure they loved it.
This is it.......


I had a lot of fun making it, all the videos were super funny. I nearly died laughing that night. The sketches were also very entertaining. Mizzou and I got to do some of our favorite interludes like Steamroller, where all the counselors lay on the floor in a line and then roll over eachother one at a time while yelling STEAMROLLER! its funny. And we got to do our Talk to the Hand interlude, which is a dramatic reading of a translated french song, a very inapropriate song.

Today was hit music day! we taught dances and had a dance competition. Mizzou and I were the judges, and we started the night with a great choreographed dance. The kids were super into the competition, it was magic. The shy kid broke it down and the asshole kid was a saint.

Well 3 more days till intersession!!!

We went to the beach today!!! started at the ocean and had to move to a lake because the waves were too intense and dangeroo. It was super fun and I am super sunburned.

Its been pretty fun with this group. they are older and super easy to entertain. "go do nothing" "YAY!!"

We have been working really long days tho, we are all pretty tired. I fell asleep in a dumpster when we did a spook walk because I was waiting to scare the children. I scared them good tho. Made some girls fall to the ground. Success.

Tomorrow the kids are gonna plan thier own day, simple, and the next day I am off, so maybe I could catch up on some communication.

I got a pretty cute Valentine from a camper yesterday, it said something like this: "Rooney, you are my prefered concelor. You are very happy and the best people for speak english to" BAH cute.
The boom was crazy fun yesterday. These kids love to shuffle.
Gonna hit the sack.

The children arrived yesterday. They rich, they snobby, but there aere some gems. One girl made SOS signs for her windows already and claims to be sick all the time, she is spanish.

Here is a funny story from the other night before the kids came: We woke up one morning and we were having breakfast and Muffin came up looking super tired and started swearing up a storm and yelling at me and moose claiming thtat we came into her room last night and I was laughing. 'fuck you thats not a funny joke!' we were so confused. She was super mad at us and did not beileve us when we told her it wasnt us. All day there was tension. Later that night a man (from the group of french gymnasts that were also staying at the site) came up to us and said 'so who did i wake up last night' we all laughed and the mystery was solved. apparently he was super drunk and just walked into the wrong room, scaring the shit outa Muffin.
I have to go;;;;;;;;;;;;;; LOVE

Day something

Hola como esthasth ? (Spanish people have lisps)
San Sebastian is treating me really well. Yesterday it was 94 degrees!!! Today it's cold and rainy but I'm ok with that. My skin got red yesterday. Yesterday Sara and I walked around beached it up and swam in the ocean. It was one of the most blissful swims I have ever had. We went to the beach again last night with some of the hostelites tOo. Today Sara and I hiked up a mountain to see a Jesus sculpture it was cool. There was a museum a t the top too about the history of the city. Nice. Tonight we are gOing to some pincho bars which are like tapas bars but all to food is on display and u grab what u want and stand around and eat it. Better than a grad party.
Tomorrow we are off to Dax. I can't wait. Free times at American village await. I'm excited to meet the new people and I will finally get paid so I can pay back my beautiful father. Love!

Day who knows

Hello! Sorry that my only post this week was a panicy One. That night sucked but I'm all better now. I just got to San Sebastian today!!! Mizzou and I Planned this last min. My original plan was to go to Venice from Madrid but that sounded expensive and stressful. So here I am in the north of Spain two hours from my next site..DAX. It's beautiful here...and hot as he'll 37!!!!! Wild. Total beach town. The beaches remind me of brazil. We laid out today and the only sunscreen they sold in the store was 15spf, luckily this pastey white chick avoided a sunburn. The hostel we are staying at is great!! It is what a hostel should be. Young tan people everywhere saying hi and cooking food together. Lots of ausies. Tonight we are going on a pub crawl with the hostel peeps. Should be good cheap fun.
As for my last days in Madrid they were very nice, no bad luck, lots of good food and a super fun night at a park where you can see all of Madrid. Huleya was a great host.
I'm gonna stop typing on this stupid I pod now.

So. I find myself with the time to blog only because I am sitting in a hallway outside of my hostel because I got locked out and my lame butt decided not to go to the fun Spanish club with spine and huleya. I'm cold, I have to pee and I keep anxiously waiting to hear the door oPen. So far it's been 20 min. This is bad luck moment number who knows what for this trip. What are the others you ask?? Well Paris was fun and all but each night included an argument. Or a failed attept at transport. Him versus her. Her versus him. Him versus him. Bus, no bus. Metro, no metro. Taxi, black taxi. It was expensive and stressful. We couldn't even find music on fete de la musique. What the he'll? Only the unluckiest person in Paris could do that. Did eat some good food though, and it was a borrito, go figure. Polar bear and I had found someone to couchsurf with for our far too long post spring session Paris trip. At first they were cool. They bought us tickets to a thing the first night we got there, thus we never got to meet up with the people we came to see. Sucked. But they were just trying to be nice. We def ended up over staying Our welcome when we asked if Our friend cheetah could stay as well. They said yes but became very grumpy with us and sent me a minorly slash pretty disappointing message after we left. It made me sad, because I was treating the situation how I would expect someone to ask in my house. I think it was a cultural thing because I felt very comfortable and made myself at home very quickly when they perhaps wanted us to act a little more like guests. I just used to moving around everyweek now and making wherever I am my home. O well, I learned something I guess.
O yOu want anOther bad luck moment? Here's one: that so called Plane ticket to Madrid I had...didn't have it. I was using mizzous card and it did t work apparently. So inter to the airport and voila, no go. I flip a little and then to buy a pricey train ticket. But hey I got a bed!! So I go to the train, wait 3 hours and go. THEN my train was late and I missed my connection. Fuck. BUT I got on a train asap and met some north Americans they were cool and made me less stressed. I arrived only two hours late but twenty hours later from the original plan. Huleya and slime were right there waiting for me!!
(update on my location: still in a hallway)
So today we went to the hostel that I had booked and they made us pay for last night and blah blah. It's ok but the lock system sucks obviously. It's in a good location but whatever. I ate tapas and drank sangria for dinner obviously. Eli e and huleya are at a club that I was too tired to go to so I went to the hostel to sleep LOL. TOmorrow will be better. It's hot here. I miss you all. I miss le borriede that site kicked ass. Love you. I

DAY 33/34

hello friends and family

I had an amazing day.
Funky Monkey, Olive Oil, Bullwinkle and I joined the group of hikers staying at the site today on an intense mountain hike. It was amazing. really hard, I have not gotten that physical in ages. But if those old farts could do it I could do it. They still did it faster. It was specactualr. Cows and sheep and lakes and snow and flowers and rocks and bliss. It was great, it is something I will never forget.
It was so steep at one point that we had to slide down on our buts, I got cut up. Call me bad ass if you want. Im super pooped now, but luckily the childrens dont come tomorrow, so I have a day to plan my travels for my break. Whoop!
I dont feel like typing anymore...computers stress me out. LOVE YOU
