So yeah…haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been insanely busy. However, no doubt you don’t want to hear about that. Anyways, since I haven’t been posting in a while, that means there have been quite a few Lifescout badges put out since I’ve been gone. Among them, there is the Kite-Flying Badge, the Camping Badge, and the Roller-Skating Badge, all of which I have done. I haven’t flown kites in a while, however, and I would like to do it again. The last time I remember flying kites was with my father in either a park or a field I’m not sure which came first. Needless to say, if you don’t live in a place with much wind, I wouldn’t be surprised if you haven’t flown a kite before. It’s mildly entertaining, to me, at least. I might find a kite-flying competition more interesting, as I am a very competitive person.
I roller-skate usually once or twice a year, tops. I don’t generally do so with my family though; most of them don’t like it. I roller-skate with my friends, or, actually, they roller-skate, and I fall. A lot.
I have camped before, but I avoid it whenever possible. It’s not as if I hate nature, or I don’t like getting dirty, it’s just too uncomfortable for my liking. I will happily sleep in a cabin, but not in a tent. I love other aspects of camping, such as cooking over a campfire, hiking, and being without technology for a bit. (Says the girl who desperately listens to as many pop songs as she can on her iPod and radio before leaving her precious music to go to camp for a week)
So, what are your stories? Have you camped, roller-skated, or flown a kite before? Comment below.
