i had a great night, the guys were all gentlemens and did a GREAT job decorating EVERYTHING. aha the Videos were so funny!!! David, Micah, and Brendan all have to be actors some day. aha
I never feel more comfortable in any other place than at Footprints. I love Youth Fellowship. :D
I’m totally gonna be going more often before i gradauted! =D
ugh. okay so lemme start off by saying that my day was good. but dannggg practice was horrible. well horrible for me. i guess it wasnt a hard day. like AT ALL! but it was hard for me after taking a whole week off last week for outdoor ed. D:
anyways. had to do timed 400s. so Father paired us up with people that he thinks we run around the same time as. so okok its cool. first it was with Wilson and Jessica<3. then the second time it was with Friggin ANDREW BRUCEEE. UGHH!!!! imma get you!!!! i cant believe he beat me. LIKE SERIOUSLYY?!! HE NEVER RUNS MY TIMESS, let alone beat me =T okok, i noe this is wrong, but in my defense, i’m out of shape. o:3
haha okay so i’m on the ground about to pass out, even tho i knew damn well not to sit down. but whoooooo caress. i dont friggin care anymore. i’m tired. okay so i’m on the ground. Wilson urged me to stand up. but i didnt so he pulled me up and i fell bad down and rolled over. =[ Father wanted us to do a cool down before we hit the weight room so i got up and jogged/walked slowly to the gate with jessica<3… but boy i didnt go far. i had to sit down and put my heads inbetween my knees or else i was gonna throw up. i realized why i was so winded. it was cuz i hadnt one ounce of fluid in my body the whole day. like literally. so jess<3 ran back thru the gate to get me some water. =] thxxx jessica! you rock. after feeling a little better, we both walked back in without doing the cool down.
Father: Wow, that was fast. How far you two go? O_O
Gigi/ Jessica: to your car….
=] teehee. ( his car is right in front of the gate. haha)
okay so weightroom was good good. =P but MANN after we got out of weightroom, Kelvin Lam and Brandon Gong and i stole Brandon Bruce’s Skateboard and splitted. haha I was pushing Kelvin along the blacktop and he tripped and i think he skitted his knee. XDD but as he fell and tripped forward, his foot pushed the board right into my left ankle. BOYYYY did it hurt. ahah we both ended up on teh ground grabbing our own legs. XDD aha
and brandon, thx for just standing there. -__-;;
and @jessica<3, you have to believe. leap of faith girl!
monday: I was the first cabin leader to arrived at James Madison Elementary and I stood by the door to see who else was coming. DUDEEEEEE. KENNY WOOD WAS THERE!!! and then i saw JENNNAA and KATYYYperry and DANIKAA and KENNYYYY :D so the principal, mr groke, who is also the principal i had wen i went there, told the cabin leaders to go onto the stage to introduce ourselves. i was like okay okay. here we go. and we all walked up. coincidently, all of us went to this elementary school together! and we didnt even notice it til the principal pointed it out =P so that was pretty neat. anyways we piled our luggage and suitcases and all that good stuff into the buss and all found a spot. i sat next to simi XD but i got teh window seat so she couldnt sleep comfortably. sry simmiii =[ (but i gave her teh window seat on the way back today :D ) so we got to the camp right… AND THE FIRST THING I NOTICED WAS THAT THERE WERE NOT SIGNAL. wat the efff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there were no signalllllllll !!! -___________________-;; so i’m like great. wat do i do now. but i heard from somone that when you go on the all day hike ( over 1500 feet up a mountain ) you will be on the toppest peak of the camp and you will get signal. so i’m like yay. i cant wait to be the group to go on the all day hike)
anyways.. before i met the kids, they were taken away to learn about the dining hall’s procedures, and were introduced to the head of the camp and the naturalists there and stuff. (naturalists are the people who bring you on the hikes to show you around and teach you about nature) . while the 250 kids were doing that stuff, the cabin leaders from james madison, hamilton (novato) and ledesma (san Jose) all met and went thru cabin leader training with Javier (nature name = java) each cabin leader met with the teachers from the school they are helping out and got a list of the children’s names that are in the cabin we are watching. MANNNNN i was hoping to be in the same cabin as simi so we can watch the group of kids together. so we can have 10 kids for both of us to watch over. but DUDDEEE i friggin DIDNT have a buddy to help me with the kids. but not only that.. i had 13 kids. -____-;; THIRTEEEN!!!! alll to my self… joy. right..? ugh. but w/e. we cant switch and besides Simi and Katy got stuck with watching over the boys. hahahha… she had to sleep in the boy’s cabin. and boy are they noisy.. friggin rascals wont go to sleep XD anyways. it was pretty good i guess. We were the Quails and we hike with the same naturalists as the Racoons :D (simi’s group) so we got to see each other all the time outtside of the dining hall. our naturalist was Rick *why he doesnt have a nature name.. is beyond me* anyways. when we were meeting the kkids, they were all so excited to meet their cabin leaders!! i walked up to the group of kids and Rick was like “Gigi is ur cabin leader!” and oh em gee. they ran to me like little chickies. and i was liike oh man. this is wat i got myself into. so we got our luggage and yeah. okay here we go into our cabins.. -__-;; MY CABIN WAS TEH FARTHEST OUT OF THE GIRLSSS RAWRRRRR. Kenny had the farthest cabin out of the whole cabin area. ahah that was hilarious. lalala. dinner was delicious. wayyy better than school food. haha and cabin leaders take turns serving the kids. none of james madison’s cabin leaders had to serve on mondayy i think. (it was hard learning 13 kids’s names on the first dayyyyy xDD) after dinner, we got our first break. Cabin leaders get 2 breaks a day. so basically we are with our kids 22 hours a day. and we pick them up in a certain spot after lunch or dinner. Its all in the schedule ur naturalist (rick) gave us. break is our hangout time wiht our own friends from school or hangout in the teacher’s lodge, or sleepinng time, shower time, or homework time :D so its all good. after our break, i pickd them up from the Muir room where they had teacher time. After teacher time i picked them up to go to the ampitheatre for fire side where we had a campfire and sang songs. yay :D okay nite time! dude. nite time is the worstt. lights out at 9:30!!! WHAT THE HECK! WHO CAN SLEEP AT 9:30?!~~~~~~~ ugh.
Woke up at 6:30. showered at 7. and rushed all the kids to brush and shower too. then had them clean up so we can get points and maybe be the honor cabin for being the neatest cabin out of the whole camp :D my girls are goood i gotta say so myself. 2 points for everything :D yay. haha the boy’s were horrible tho. i heard some one from Novato’s group got all 0s. lols
anyways. we had a challenge course on tuesday morning, the boys and girls had a hard time working together at the beginning of the week, they called each other names and things like that. but the challenge course made them work together and trust each other more. dude. it was great. we got to walk on a tightrope in the woods. with no one to help you but a rope to hang onto and the kids below you to support you incase you lose ur balance. i think the girls and boys trusted each other a little bit more starting from that challenge. after challenge time, we hiked back to camp and had lunch. when lunch starts, the CL (cabin leaders) are officially on break until its time to pick them up from the ball field for cabin time. cabin time is when you just watch them in ur room or take them on little walks. or they can hang out in the room. its like ur alone time with the kids. i think they enjoy that a lot too. =]
we had our night hike tonite! yay. it was really scary for some of the kids on the hike, you couldnt see anything. XD and most of them grabbed onto me or simi. and a little guy name Jared held onto my backpack on the way back to camp. they are so cute!!!! this was also the day where i was super depressed because i found out that my all day hike was going to be on thursday. THAT’s wen i get signal?! fine so be it. -__-;;
okay thursday finally rolled along. i wwas on the verge of throwing away my phone. wat was the point when all it could do was be ur alarm clock XD haha. so yeah… we climbed and climbed. it was crazyyy steep! one of my girls had a hard time. but we took a little break, sprinkled some magically spring water to give them strength ;D haha yay they made it!!! ( videos of this hike coming up soon)
woke up. dressed. packed. came back.

its been a good 2-3 weeks since the team has been to lake chabot, dunnno why father had us run around in the city. But todayy father said we were going to run the hill again! :D woot so happy. so all set off.
o yeah before practice started, i had a pretty shitty afternoon. So i was really eager to run my heart out.
anyways, we get to Lake chabot and we lose Janet to the bathroom. xD Jess, father, David and i ran up the hill after krystie and i guess you can say that we ran into a rainstorm. all of a sudden a huge wind blew the rainclouds to us and we were FREEEEEEEZING. but iono why we didnt stop XD the tall trees lost some of its bark due to the huge gusts of wind. i feel extremely lucky to not get hit by them. =O i tried to yell at some of the boys ahead of us to turn back home. but they didnt come back so w/e. jess and i started to head back down hill and ran into janet. the rain stopped by now and yeah.
i guess the most exciting thing that happened today was the wind and the rain xD
oh and i thinki can speak for the girls about this. we really, truly, surely, unmistakably exceedingly detest Mr. Nelson.
OH AND COACH RIK!!!! IF YOU SEE THIS BLOG, I AM NOT GOING TO PRACTICE TMR :P IONO IF U HEARD ME TODAYY AS WE WERE RUNNING, BUT LETS SAY THIS COUNTS AS ME LETTING YOU IN KNOW IN ADVANCE. :D
today was iite. there was a blood drive at school and i signed up to be a volunteer, not to be the donor but to be a helper, turns out they had more than enough people to help out. I saw amandaaaa laying on the cushion thingy with her hands in the air (so brave..) and i became her body guard from then on.
so anyways. didnt have the BEST day but it didnt suck either. so w/e
anyways. i wanted to blog about thiss cuzzz i thot it was super funny =] and daniel said i shouldnt do. XD but imma do it just cuz.
Rik makes you do Abs like crazy, yes? I think we can all agree on this. Most of us try to be the one after the guy that is doing it, to do it. or maybe after that person… or maybe after THAT person. Long story short, we try to get out of it as much as we can.
ooooooohooo noo. not today. these three freshmens were literally fighting to get on the machine. i never had such a fun time in the weight room before. teeeheee. Xuan had his hands on seat and Brawnson was pulling from his legs XDD. Xuan was basically floating in midair with his hands on the seat. ahha DANIEL on the other hand was just shoving and pushing and grabbing xuan whereever he could get his hands on and tried to make his way on the seat too. i was like WHAT ARE YOU GUYSS DOING!?!!! xD turns out the only reason xuan wanted to do abs so bad is cuz his mom was here to pick him up. ahha the way he pleaded to use the machine was HILARIOUS. ahah these three boys. oh man :D
