Hey there, J.P here again! Last night, 4 vans full of preview students who wanted to get a taste of the High Sierra Semester came up and are staying here for a couple of days. I had a chance to meet Elli, one of the bloggers on here, and she is amazing, and highly intellectual and down to Earth.
Me and the other High Sierra students mingled with the preview students and we had a Bon Fire on Star Rock. Star Rock is not too far from my cabin. It’s basically a large strip of flat land that is made of solid rock. We had smores and then went back to the Dining hall and played board games, more particularly, Apples to apples. If you haven’t played Apples to Apples, I suggest you go out and buy it because it’s an awesome ice breaker game. For those of you who do play it, like my friend Ashley Darrow says, “Helen Keller is the trump card of Apples to Apples”. I concur
Right now, the preview students are going on a tour around the campus. The High Sierra Semester campus here is basically a summer camp. During the summer, it’s a camp, but during the school year, they transform it into a college campus, or a satellite campus to be more exact. We still get wi-fi internet service, but cell phone service is pretty hard to get, but the service is always great up on Star Rock.
Later on during the day, the preview students and High Sierra Semester students are going to go on a hike, and then we’re going to do a lot of fun activities High Sierra provides every day like archery, kayaking, and mountain boarding. It’s refreshing to see some new faces after I’ve been seeing the same 21 faces everyday since I’ve been here.
Tonight, we’re going to eat dinner and play a game called “Murder Mystery”. I have no idea how to play it, but I heard it’s kind of like Clue or Sherlock Holmes. I can’t wait to play it tonight and I will tell you all about it on my next blog. My cameras broken at the moment, but I think my other friends have cameras to take pictures.
Two days ago, me and my High Sierra friends played sardines on the campus here. Here’s a picture of all of us:
