i went to the HOBY conference (the CT version, down in bridgeport), and it was a lot of fun. the ride down was a little hairy: driving down I-95 at 7am is not cool, big cities are scary at times, and it didn't help that i was an idiot and printed out the wrong directions but that's ok 'cause we got the right ones.
once i got there and threw my crap in the dorm room, they had us all together for icebreaker stuff like human bingo and we met up with our group (WOO GROUP F!!!!). our activities consisted of:
- making a pasta tower (didn't go so hot but not a total failure)
- panel sessions about entrepreneurship, political involvement, education, financial stuff and volunteering (boring at times but the entrepreneurship one was pretty neat)
- talking about random crap
- doing random cheers like the "brown squirrel", "crazy moose", the burrito cheer and that last one that i'll have to strangle the next person who says that o-word
and now that i realize that i won't have room for the actual dlgm posts and that i basically summed it up anyway, i'll just end this with a shout-out to my group, the Firecrackers (unofficially the "F-Bombers"). love you guys!
