On this fine Sunday, Team Fitting In traveled to the Duke University Gardens! It was a magnificent experience. Not only because the gardens were beautiful, but because we got to play hide and seek in them. It was a great bonding experience for our group. After coming back to our camp site, some of our group went on a jog around the camp grounds. Personally, my right ankle felt like it was about to snap off. I kept going though, because I’m not a quitter and neither is my group. I was informed that I should switch to Asics running shoes, rather than Nike.
An important part of our day was the reflection period. Each group member had the opportunity to share why they are personally connected to this trip. I appreciated this time because I truly felt connected with every person in some way from what was shared. I love them all <3
Day 1 of ASB: Team Fitting In was rather interesting. It would be safe to summarize this day as our team’s bonding day. We traveled from Lafayette College in Easton, PA to Durham, North Carolina in two SUV’s. This trip took a little under 10.5 hours. Our team sang, introduced each other to new music, and played intense, sometimes stressful games of 20 questions (I don’t know why we chose to disrespect the last question that would’ve made it 21 questions). Also, we were fed well along the way to North Carolina – shout out to our group leader(s).
Upon arrival to our site, we ate dinner and got ourselves situated in our cabin. The team bonded further through games of Ninja, WA, and Mafia. Mafia is not for the weak-hearted, let me tell you. However, it was a great experience all around. There was some betrayal that took place in these games, and I was bitter about it. But in the end, we were all able to laugh about the ridiculousness of it all.
