I went to a conference at a big hotel surrounded by big streets and a big shopping mall that served big meals. I learned some interesting things (did you know you can make a crossword puzzle with excel?), and I listened to some crap (If she says "Part/Whole" one more time I am going to fucking LOSE IT!!). I danced to a really cheesy rock band called "The Strolling Scones" that played covers of every predictable song. It was, I guess you would say, business as usual as far as conferences go.
I heard a man speak named Dr. Chuck Luna. He is the co-director of the Rocky Mountain Intercultural Institute He was passionate and inspiring and understands the lives of real people. After his address, I wanted to ask him to run for president. He said the only really thought-provoking thing I heard in those two days: "A junior in high school right now will have an average of 12-16 careers in his or her lifetime........4 of them don't even exist yet."
