Reflections

Second last day of Project WILD Boot Camp 2017. It’s been a crazy fun week, with a ton of info absorbed, notes taken, pictures and of course some social media. There have been late nights (we are all still tired from staying up until 4 getting drum tracks on the second night), sunny skies and…

One-on-ones!!!!

Day 4 – Well I was able to finally get to sleep after my showcase and it was the best sleep I have had at camp so far, and i think most of it was due to the fact that I didn’t have my showcase set hanging over me, and was able to truly let…
