Hey, I have an excuse this time!

Hi everyone! Ok, before you start shouting at me, let me just say: I actually do have a valid reason why I didn't post on Monday. (I know - shocking, right?) Unfortunately, it's not exactly a very pleasant reason... I was sick. :( Terrible headache, sore throat, cough, and blocked nose. As you can imagine, it wasn't the most wonderful experience - there's something going around my camp, so a bunch of people fell ill, but I was one of the first (and, as a result, I spent most of the day lying in bed eating ice cream my roommates sneaked to me from the dining hall and generally being miserable). I just really was not feeling the motivation to get out of bed and write a post. :P

But the good news is that, besides that minor derailment, camp is almost over! Of course, I'm seriously going to miss everyone here - it's very rare that I meet people as wonderful as these - but I'd be lying if I said I'm not looking forward to finally getting more time to write FH and songs, and to work on my other projects. Plus, I'm kind of missing home a little bit. I haven't been homesick in all this time (and it's been... what, almost two months now? Or more? I don't even remember!), but now it's kind of kicking in. :/ I'll be very, very happy to sleep in my own bed once more - that is, once the 25-hour plane flight is over!

Other than that, nothing much really going on. Camp ends on Friday; my dad is coming to pick me up, and I think we're spending a couple of days in the Palo Alto area, but I'm not exactly sure what we'll be doing. Regardless, I'll let you all know soon - and be expecting a bit more of a thorough overview of my thoughts on this camp! I hope all of you are doing well; I'm sorry, I haven't had much of a chance to check in, but as always I'm so grateful for your continuing support. Hope you're having a lovely week so far! xx

love, Topaz
