In Defense of the Worcester Summer:

February 4, 2015

Filed under Scarlet Letter

For four years, I was a life-changing, role-modeling, tie-dyeing, flip-flopping, song-leading, chicken nugget-eating, campfire-stoking, sunglasses-wearing, youth-leading summer camp counselor. It was a great job. I got to be outside...
