Polly Writes Home







Dear Mom and Dad,

Camp has been okay so far. The first couple of days were really hard – I was kind of lonely. I know that Amanda and a lot of my friends are all here but I just missed you guys so much. I guess maybe it’s because I’ve never been away from home before. I didn’t want to tell anyone this but I know I can tell you – the first few nights I even cried in my bed at night. I tried to be quiet so no one would hear me, but I guess someone did hear me because after a few days Amanda came and found me during breakfast one day and asked me if everything was okay. I didn’t want to bug her, but when she asked me what was wrong, I started crying again and told her everything and as soon as I got it off my chest I immediately started to feel so much better!

Amanda said that I was silly not to come to her in the first place. She said even though she told me not to bug her all the time, that didn’t mean I couldn’t talk to her at all – especially if something was bothering me. Then she told me about her first time at camp and how she was totally miserable for the first couple of days, but then she and PJ stayed up late one night and PJ had a whole bag of marshmallows in her trunk. The two of them ate so many marshmallows that they got sick and had to go to the infirmary the next day! (uh, I’m not really sure I’m supposed to be telling you this but – oh well!) Anyway, she said that even though they both felt totally gross, having that little adventure with PJ gave her a special bond with someone and then she didn’t feel so homesick.

And Amanda said that because she’s my sister, she and I have a special bond too and that any time I feel lonely I can come and talk to her – even if she was busy! And then I said that maybe, because I was feeling kind of bad, could I borrow her favorite sweatshirt and she said nice try but not a chance. Oh well.

I love you so much and I still miss you but I’ve been feeling much better ever since Amanda and I had that talk!

    Good decision! Telling someone about a problem makes you feel much better. (Camp isn’t that bad when you have been 5 times :D.)Good luck with the rest of camp.

            mebelovin do you want to be friends ?my user name is vaquitanine.

      • Moonstar says:

        Swissylover, I haven’t seen any of your comments. Well, it doesn’t mean people don’t like you and hate your name. There is a lot of people on here who I have seen and not even thier comments get replied to. It is ok. Some of my comments arn’t replied either. It doesn’t mean that people don’t like you-at all. I like that name and I would be happy for you to be Moonbeam if you want! -Moonstar§

        • vaquitanine says:

          i haven`t seen any of swissylover`s comments.i replie on here a lot and nobody talks to me.it`s just i feel sad and left out. it feels like i have no friends on HERE.it`s like every body is inoging me!!!!!!

          • Moonstar says:

            I don’t ignore you! Believe me, I feel that way a whole lot. I feel like everyone only see’s Moonstar, not the person inside who has feelings. I feel like that when people accuse me of something, don’t they know I have feelings too?
            Fans make me really happy, I feel like they understand what I go through being Moonstar. -Moonstar§

        In for Boston ROCKs. I one time went to a week long summer camp. I was a little homesick too, but I held it in, until I found my cousin crying for the same reason. At night, on the second night, we sneaked out of the tent to talk about it, and with the tension realeased, we ended up laughing, because my vision at night is terrible, and we saw the camp van near the tent, and I thought it was the tent!

      • boingie1 says:

        i love camp but i dont get homesick. im always looking for a chance to get away from my parents!
        Keep posting!

      Being homesick is hard. I’m glad that you got over it. I find that it helps when you’re busy doing things, it keeps your mind off of it. Talking to someone also really helps.
