Last summer, when I arrived at summer camp, I had no idea where I would be going once camp ended. I couldn’t figure out if I should return home or try a new school in a new state—one my parents had suggested.
During the first few days of camp, all I could think about was “I.” I thought about how “I want to keep playing year-round softball,” and how “I want to go home and attend school with my friends.” I had a specific outline for my life in mind, and I refused to consider anything besides that plan. I felt angry and confused and was awake every night worrying about where I should go.
