Summer Camp, Kinda

What do you think of when you think of summer camp? If you’re anything like me, you think of friends, campfires, the canteen, arts & crafts, and sports, especially water sports. Well, after some thought, I realize that Mario’s and my summers have been eerily camp-like, yet in different ways. You see, Mario has spent the past week on a boat:

Everybody look at me ’cause I’m sailing on a boat

O captain, my captain…

I, on the other hand, have occupied my time with arts and crafts. Yes, I’m that kind of nerdy now. We’ve moved on from just reading linguistics books for fun now, yo.

Obviously not to scale, but that is not the point, folks.

Kinda blurry.

My friend taught me to knit this summer, so I’ve been working on my first project, which is, naturally, a scarf. For Mario. Because, ya know, it’s cold outside and stuff. The yarn is super soft though, and I like to bury my face in it. I also enjoyed learning the Spanish knitting vocab: to knit = hacer punto, skein = madeja, yarn = hilo.

Sewing. Yeah, I told you I was lame. I made this pillow slipcovers for some old, ugly pillows I had and they’re like new! Thanks to my grandma for 1) the sewing machine and 2) the little tutorial.

And just so you don’t have any doubts about how I am, ch-ch-check out my new shirt:

This is what Mario and I do – take silly photos of us, just because LDRs can get tough from time to time and it’s nice to see a smiling face. And yeah, I do love Mario. Both of them. (But shhh, don’t tell anyone, I like the Spanish one best. It’ll be our little secret, yeah?)

Adiós, amigos. I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our lives.

  1. The Kikster would never do crafts, or even wear a life jacket. Too manly for all that. My mother recently asked me if he had any hobbies. I said, talking about planes, studying his plane, professional badass and speaking Arabic. Oh, and beer consumption, duh.

  2. For my birthday last year, my bf gave me something every similar to your Indiana/Spain cutout. Instead it was too anatomically correct heats cut out from maps of Southern California and NY with several lines between them (think airline maps with several routes in red). The t-shirt is adorable.
