the first few days...

i've been a camp director now for 3 days.  no one wants to fire me yet, which is a positive thing.  i still don't really understand the size of the job ahead of me, however, i don't think things are beyond me.  the usual overwhelming feeling of the first few days is upon me, but i really think i'm going to handle things alright. 

the trick for me is going to be balancing the thin razor-edge line between asserting myself as the guy in charge and taking care of the delicate opinions of those who have influence to override what i do.  i don't want to step on anyone's toes, but i've been brought in to run and grow a camp and that's what i intend to do.

there's always going to be some feeling out in the first few days, and it's going to take some time for me to feel fully comfortable with the place and the people that i work with.  that being said, i think i'm going to do just fine at this little gig.
