Steubenville 2009, Above All

July 27, 2009

I just got back from the Steubenville East conference yesterday and to sum it all up, it was awesome! Here are some highlights from the trip, which was three days by the way, in no particular order, except kind of in chronological order:

  • Me and my friend Zack waited in line for about a half an hour to get into confession (they have it 10pm-12am every night) and we were kind of near the end of the line, but not really. So anyways, this guy came up to us and told us that there were priests scattered around the second floor with no line that we could go to, so we got out of line and went but there were NONE! He LIED! Or we’re just blind… So anyways we got back in line and just barely made it.
  • In the cafeteria, instead of having a trash can, there is this super-amazing CONVEYOR BELT!! You just put all your trash and dishes on it and it goes into a room and it’s just SO cool.
  • I got a mustard stain on my pants…
  • I waited in line with four other people to go to confession. I obviously wasn’t going to go again, they were just the people that I hung out with the most so I waited with them. Anyways, we had to wait not one, not two, not three! But FOUR times, to get to confession! We even missed part of a performance to wait in line even more but that still wasn’t good enough. Each time we had to either go to a speech or go to lunch or dinner.
  • While waiting in line we wanted to take a picture of us looking up but we needed someone else, someone tall, to do it, so we asked this random guy and he was like “Sure!” so he got this chair and then kinda fell off of it, but then got back on and then took our picture. So worth it.
  • We went to the gift shop and someone in our group, Mitch, bought a little hand held fan but then forgot it because we were playing with it, so we took it and decided we were going to catch up with him later and give it to him. It turned out that he didn’t actually buy it, but then we now have stolen the fan from the gift shop.. But it’s okay because we went back later and just put it back. IT’S OKAY!!
  • This guy was walking around with a shirt that said “FREE HUGS” on it, and me and Dan decided that we HAD to hug him at one point, and on the last day during breakfast he sat at a table right next to ours so we hugged him and got to sign his shirt!
