TCX & Winter Break

Winter break's coming to an end. This was only my second trip home since school started and it was awesome while it lasted, but I'm excited to get back to UWM!

This winter break I went to a midwest Christian conference in Minneapolis, MN called TCX. It's put on by Campus Crusade for Christ, a club I'm involved with from UWM. It was sooo much fun! There was speakers and singing and dancing and randomness, and lots and lots of NINJA. If you've never heard of ninja come join Cru and we'll be happy to teach you! And if you ever get the chance to go to TCX take it! Picture a couple thousand college kids in a 5 star hotel, pretty much not sleeping for 4 nights in a row. That was TCX! It. Was. EPIC! I made lots of new friends and hung out with a bunch of people I hadn't seen in a long time.

We discovered a few things on our trip-
1. If you learn to throw playing cards well enough they might draw blood (sorry dude, didn't mean to hit you in the cheek!)
2. Shopping carts can ride target escalators, too. Well, in minneapolis they can!
3. It's fantastically fun to race your cart on the target escalators and see who gets there first!
4. There is no shame dancing to N'Sync on escalators, in a 5 star hotel, barefoot. Or at least I didn't think there was.

So yeah, TCX was great :) I went back to the cities once to visit a friend, but I've been home in Rochester ever since. I think I'll be heading back to Milwaukee on the 19th; I have to get there early to start training for my new job as an SI leader. As an SI leader I'll attend a large lecture class (that I've taken previously) and then hold small group review sessions for the students enrolled in the class. It's sort of a blend between tutoring and teaching. Yeah, it's pretty exciting stuff!

So anyways, I'm going to get back to being lazy because it's break and I can :) Hope you're all enjoying your breaks!
