I love the first day of project. 200 awkward conversations about where I live, what school I root for, and where to find a toothbrush within walking distance. We started the project by taking awkward “I’ve been traveling for a full day but you want me to dress up and pose” pictures.
By this time next week, we’ll have inside jokes, guys will be honing in on which girl they think God wants them to marry, and the students will be on their second full day as ride operators, dippin’ dots servers (the ice cream of the future for the last couple of decades), or hot dog assemblers at the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.
But for now, we’ll just continue to talk about things to forget like what year in school everyone is. Where’s my nametag?
