The day for the #HootCamp (company wide x-bonding event) is finally here! I’ve been, literally, waiting for this day to come for more than a year now. Last year I was (un)fortunately away and couldn’t make it to the trip but of course I heard all the fun things that happened and knowing HootS, I know things got pretty rowdy.
Everything worked in my favour this year: I’m here in Van, no weekend events, no complications from parents, and as a bonus, I finished my period early (<– too much information?). I packed and unpacked three times last night to make sure I pack enough but not too much and I ended up putting everything into 1 big gym bag accompanying my small purse and sleeping bag.
While I was lugging them on the skytrain today I kept thinking what I could possibly take out to make the bag even smaller, but I realize it does not matter at the end. That bag will still be that size full or not. I also realized the packing for two nights and five is pretty much the same. So here’s what I ended up packing:
- 2 t-shirts + 1 tank top
- 2 shorts
- 1 dress
- 1 towel
- 1 bikini
- 1 sneakers
- 1 flip flops
- The essentials: sunscreen, insect repellent, flash light, phone charger, shampoo, soap, toothbrush, marshmallows (yum!)
I could do with less clothing but who knows what happens down there; it’s better to be safe than sorry, right? 🙂 Anyways, we’re heading out anytime soon to the secret campground in usual HootS fashion, wearing all white.
When I’m back on Sunday, Kingsley and I will be watching Bard on the Beach: Twelfth Night that night. Super excited for that too 🙂
