Camp life is so boring. The thing I like to do best is to read the newspapers. I really like finding out what is happening at home. Other things we do at camp are play chess and sing songs at the campfire. All we gt to eat is a mixture called "baled hay", bland cakes that contain roots, stalks, and leaves. Another horrible food is called hardtack, a half-inch thick biscuit which almost always contains worms and weevils living in it. I didn't really have a favorite food. All the foods that we get to eat are rotten or contain bugs. I really hate what we are forced to eat.

For fun, I read the newspaper to find out everything that is happening in my hometown.
