Bare Feet & Public Speaking

Good morning, lovelies!

Okay, I mean good afternoon. The cat is out of the bag - my summer mornings often extend through the afternoon. But hey, if a girl can't sleep late in the summer, when can she? My schedule is what it is. I'm not ashamed.

Last night I visited a Jewish girls' camp to talk to the older campers about my blog. I had prepared a short slide show, but the girls were amazing - they had so many questions that I ended up talking for an hour and a half straight. My throat's a bit sore, but it was worth it.

I would like to mention that a camp setting is one of the few places I find Crocs appropriate. Most of the girls were wearing them.

Of course, I'm now missing my camp quite a bit. We didn't wear Crocs; we went barefoot all summer and it was glorious. I'm a huge fan of pretty shoes, but there's something about not wearing them that makes you feel fantastic.

Ah, to be young and at summer camp. . .

I was given quite a large gift certificate for my local mall as a thank-you gift, so I guess I won't have to cut back on purchases so much any more. Forever 21 just opened, and I think it's time to check it out! I will, of course, fill you in on any interesting buys.

You always find such things to do in regards to your blog- talking at a camp, being featured in teen vogue, etc- how do you do it?

Sounds like a fun fun day!

makemoremistakes - Look who's talking - you do cool stuff all the time:) Honestly, I guess I'm pretty lucky, but I also self-advocate. I don't know for sure, but I think Teen Vogue found me because I went to a TV event and gave some of the staffers (including Amy Astley) my business cards. And the camp found me through my article in the Boston Globe.

windinthewires - It was!

in yr fshn - Hmm, my Jewish summer camp days were honestly terrible, but my mostly-Jewish-yet-not-religiously-affiliated-hippy-camp was fantastic. Thanks, I must say I love the gladiators as well...
