I’m not sure what to title this, because this is just a collection of thoughts..wait maybe that’s what I’ll call this! Anyways, I had a YAC meeting in Golden this past weekend, and it was fabulous. We’re down to all girls now, well except for Wayne, who suggested that we get him an Xbox with a first person shooter so that he can preserve his maniless (and his sanity). A friend suggested that due to our current situation we change the name from YAC (youth advisory committee) to FAC (Female advisory committee) so we would be FACers instead of YACers haha.
Anyways back to the topic of the meeting. We had a new YACer join that I had met previously at a youth conference and we were in Anthropology together. She and I and another girl that I went to RYLA with roomed together and it was wonderful. We would just sit and chat for hours about everything. I don’t think I got to bed until around midnight haha (you didn’t see that Dana haha). It’s moments like these ones that make the YAC meetings a place to recenter from a nutty few months for me, even though we are there to work. But it’s a different kind of work, it’s not even really work, it’s discussions, it’s collaborating ideas on things, learning more about the basin we call home, and forming friendships that even we don’t even quite understand, they just happen.
So after a rather rough couple of weeks, it was nice to have a weekend like last weekend, to kind of remember some important things that needed to be remembered.
And that was my weekend, how was your’s?
