Yesterday I went to Camp Tawonga's San Francisco office to do my interview for this summer. The interview was fun, but the best part was seeing all my camp homies in the office.
In addition to the people who work there, like Aaron Mandel, a girl named Hannah was there for an interview. This is significant because she's an Astrophysics major at Santa Cruz. How insanely awesome is that? (Again, one more thing you can do at a school bigger than Willamette...) If she gets hired for this summer, she can totally run the humungous telescope that camp has. There's even a green laser pointed to go with it.
She reminds me of my unit counselor eight years ago, Josh Lee, who was also an astrophysicist. He's the one who first got me interested in Quantum Mechanics, and that was also the summer when I learned that most of the stars you see in the sky are already dead. (And also why, if the universe is infinite, you don't see an infinite number of stars, and the earth isn't lit up by them at night. Ask me sometime in person, because it's as complicated as it is fascinating.)
Three cheers for amazing counselors! (Especially those who know how to blow campers' minds!)
