Memoirs of a Sea Scout: Entry 020

The camp is tomorrow and we still have so many things to settle. Many things still need to be put together since we've worked on each part separately. It's going to be another long night tonight. We've not slept for the past few days, only taking very short naps now and then so we can complete our work.

Could we have avoided this situation if we had not taken our own sweet time preparing for the camp? Would it have made any difference if there weren't so many competitions? Would the situation be any better if we had more members? The reality is, it doesn't really matter. It is really up to us to make do with what we have.
