3 months of preperation, over in 4 days. Obviously, the camp passed by way too fast, even for the Facis who only slept roughly 10/72 hours, for us to fully appreciate it. There’re honestly so many learning points all of us, Facis and campers alike, but that’s for another time.
I just slept for 15 hours straight, something I’ve never done before in my life. Hardly surprising considering how I only slept for ONE hour last night, also a first for me.
I don’t really know if I wanna go through the entire CLIC camp from day 1 to 4, partly cuz I’m too lazy right now. Let me just say that being a Faci is SO different from being a camper.
And boy oh boy do I miss CLIC, all the joy and laughter. Acting during harper’s night, setting up bash night under the night sky (uber cool!!!) and station games. Of course doing a DISC test again and learning I’ve become a really high I (apparently) compared to an SIC as I was in the past was pretty cool as well.
Combat skirmish was pretty epic, or at least it sounded pretty epic. We all carried guns that weighed 3-5kg, that had red dot sights on them FYI, and wore vests with sensors on them that created a field around our torsos and head. After which, we just ran around killing as many people as we could :P Guns gave off sounds everytime you shot them, your vest would give of a sound everytime you lost a life. Sounds cool huh? If only the guns weren’t like pea shooters, practically impossible to kill anyone… People. Just. Wouldn’t. Die.
Seriously though, I hope all the campers took away something from this camp. I was quite surprised when several other campers from other groups knew my name (I didn’t know many other facis’ names last year :(), but satisfying none the less.
But of course, a big shout out and thanks to my group : Group 8, Hotdawgs! It’s hard for me to have wished for a better group. Thanks loads for everything guys. You’ve really made my journey as being a CLIC faci a truly memorable one, I hope it’s been the same for you as well.
Of course, I have a couple more thousand things to say about CLIC and to Hotdawgs, but I’ll keep this blog post short. Even if I knew where to start from, I probably wouldn’t know where to end. Let me just say that the hana tattoo of a hotdog on the back of my right hand is still completely visible, and I really hope it’ll stay there for as long as possible. Not to mention I feel weird not wearing our group’s identity when I step out of the house now. I’ve grown so accustomed to it…
Thanks for everything guys. Rock on. :P
