Strangers to friends

Tuesday 17th june. Harrison, Maine

Wow days are so long here, i mean, they're filled with so many things, each day a saga, with internet and Facebook not playing any part. Freedom....real life. People are are slotting into roles, and bonds are forming. Last night we had a lecture on camp, a talk about all the directors, then watched the Fernwood Cove video...tears! We then had a talk about the 'Extraordinary World'. I love this bit, i love being there to go through it with the new people, watching their faces, predicting their thoughts. Some seemed over whelmed, like they had just joined a cult. It takes me to a new little world actually, its really feel good and refreshing. Doo good, work hard, feel good, make a difference to people's lives.

I had various meeting as I am head of studio arts! Then today has been lectures and team building exercises on the field. Serious name games, games where we had to make a machine out of our selves, we were a car wash.

I love this place.  EXHAUSTED... 22.25 pm....up at 7. Good night.

Flying High

June 12th 2014

Well crying at the wonderfully majestic conclusion of in-flight movie Frozen was not my proudest moment. New goal: to find a gay best friend snowman.

A lot of things have changed since the last time i wrote, I'd say I've skipped about 10 chapters. This year I've completely got to know who I am and its a kind of high I didn't think possible. Life has changed, A LOT, a new kind of wonderful. Letting your self do things or admit thing that seem daunting seems to release a new compartment of soul...too deep? Theres not such thing anymore. Ive learnt opening up, letting your guard down, letting people know the real you is so liberating and brings you closer to every person you open up to.

Im sitting on a plane, somewhere over the Atlantic, window seat, reflecting on leaving Leeds behind. I was pretty chocked leaving this time, but I need to remind myself of how lucky I am to have a life that makes leaving so damn difficult. Kitchen disco's, weekly gigs, friends I regard as soal mates, friends that in a life completely single I would still have everything I need. To me, humans are life. People are what influence ideas, who teach you who you are, who inspire you to do and who open up your eyes to new things. Its never been so evident as it has recently, just how much I live my life in possibilities, and run the opposite direction to anything or anyone that creates limitations.

America here I come.
