This last week I went to a Scout camp for a week. It is called Camp Daniel Boone. I took the merit badges:

Archery- Finished


Fishing-Only need to catch two different types of fish to complete.

First Aid-Finished

The food wasn’t very good, plus they pile it all together, not really caringĂ‚ if they put rice on top of your roast beef. (Half- cooked rice.) My campsite was about close to a mile away from the mess hall (which also happened to be where most of the badges took place.) The water was really cold, yet we still found a way to have fun- Jump into the stream! (It was colder then the lake.) After a couple of minutes, though, you start to get used to it. Meaning that you went numb. The stream ran all throughout camp, and you could often saw people fishing somewhere (mainly on the short stone bridge.) There was also a place called Boonesborough, which took about 40 minutes to get to, walking. It was mostly uphill too. (Grr!) But there they had lots of arts and crafts that you could do, and they had a tavern! It had chips, root beer, and cream soda. (All for a one time price of 19.95! Call now to get a %20 discount! 865-567-4200!) I bought a root beer. It was a brand I didn’t see much often, but it was pretty good.

About Me

I am (at the time of this writing) 15 years old, and a sophomore at the Knox County STEM Academy (soon to have a real name, I hope). I have many varied interests, from Boy Scouts to programming, reading to video games, and music to writing. I enjoy pretty much every subject- that leads me to believe that I just like learning. I’m more interested in some courses than others of course, but for the most part I’m happy in every class I take (if I have a competent teacher). As a conversationalist, I am sadly lacking. I think (not positive) that I might be a little introverted (not antisocial, introverted- this means I don’t seek out social contact; antisocial means I avoid it). I can talk for a while if it’s about a subject I enjoy, but few are they who I can talk to for any real length of time. Luckily, my family is included in that number.
I joined Cub Scouts in 1st grade, which started my Scouting career. Believe me when I say that Boy Scouts are much better. I went on trips to only four different places over several years- Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies (in Gatlinburg), the Knoxville Zoo, Camp Buck Toms, and an unnamed camping area… Somewhere. I don’t know where.
