Tech Trek is a math and science camp for middle school girls aimed at encouraging girls to attend college and pursue careers in math/science related fields (because something should be done about the dismal numbers of women engineers in the field). The camp is a week long sleep-away on a college campus so that girls get a taste of the college experience. Unlike most other summer camps, girls get in on a scholarship. I had this honor myself in 2009 when I was the only girl selected from my school following an application and interview process. I had so much fun that year that I definitely wanted to come back to the program as a Junior Counselor (JC), one of the 4 high school girls that help out with the various classes and serve as role models for the girls.

The interruption of Tech Trek also interrupted my "hard-working" streak so after I got back all I did was sleep, laze around, and play Professor Layton! I finished the main storyline of Last Specter sometime towards the end of June and while it was enjoyable, it definitely didn't leap over Unwound Future to take the place as favorite game. I think I didn't find the storyline as compelling and Loosha just came out of nowhere for me. But I must confess, this game was hard!! When I finished the storyline, I didn't even have enough picarats to unlock any of the bonuses. I suspected as much judging by the rate that I lost picarats every time a puzzle came up. Is it just that my puzzle skills are deteriorating or are these some of the hardest puzzles yet? As the fourth game of the series, I'd like to think the latter explains it. Well, it motivates me to replay the game to get a better score.
Since then I've moved on to Little London...everything in it so adorable~ >w< It's currently exceeding my expectations with its variety of jobs, re"quests", and even its own mini plotline! I'd really like to try out the social club aspect of it so here's my friend code: 5157-9634-4086 Please let me know your friend codes as well!
Besides Little London, I'm paying close attention to the real London as the Olympics continue...but that warrants a post of its own so I'll stop here for now.
