Summer Status Update

Published 2021-08-08 on Cara Salter's Blog - Permalink

Hello from summer camp! Apologies for the tumbleweeds around here lately, I’ve been away at a Scout Camp running their archery program for the past seven weeks. Given that there hasn’t been much progress over the past few months, I’m going to combine the status updates for June-August into one “Summer Status Update”. This was mentioned in the last status update, but I figured it was a good idea to say it again.

I’m writing this from the staff lodge at summer camp as we prepare to take down everything we set up for the summer so we can store it for next season. I haven’t had all that much time to write code, so this status update is mostly a placeholder. Things have, however, been busy on the personal side of things. In short summary:

  • I’ve graduated high school!
  • I was elected as North America Regional Coordinator for ScoutLink1, in charge of recruiting and managing volunteers for the Jamboree on the Internet

I’m excited to start the next chapter of my life at college, where I’ll be majoring in Computer Science, more on those changes in a later blog post 😊.

With that, I’m going to close out the summer with a bang and get a good start at college. See you next month!
