By the time you read this, I’ll be on the train heading towards Boston, Massachusetts. Once I get to Boston, it’s off to Danvers, Massachusetts for my fraternity’s biennial convention. I’ve never been up to that part of the country before, so I’m looking forward to doing some sightseeing when the schedule allows.
Once you graduate from being regular fraternity guy to someone who volunteers and actively donates his time and money to the fraternity, these conventions become quite the event. You get to see guys that you haven’t caught up with in a while and, depending upon how/if you volunteer for the organization, people are always trying to drag you down into petty politics. The way I see it, I don’t have the time or additional space in my short-term memory to be concerned about fraternity politics so I try my damnedest to stay out of that bullshit.
But like I said – this is my first time to the Danvers-Boston area and I’m looking forward to seeing the sites. Also, the hotel has a pool so I’m looking forward to going for a few dips before the activity starts each day. Hey, I won’t have my Wii Fit Plus available to help get me moving, but I’m going to attempt to keep the momentum going anyway!
I’ve arranged for a few entries to automatically upload to the site while I’m gone, so have no fear about this place being a dead zone for a few days.
