This weekend, I am remembering my first time at Crossroads, as students all over the state head down to Southern California for this annual conference. If you are unfamiliar with Crossroads, it is a chance for students to hear from speakers and learn how to navigate post-college life in a way that glorifies God.
Let’s throw it back to senior year of high school:
I had just gotten home from the first day of high school swimming championships. It was after midnight and I was exhausted. I had finished an AP test that morning, and had another one in 8 hours. I was starving, caked in chlorine, and ready to hibernate. Wanting to get to bed ASAP, I did what any other rational person would do: grabbed 2 frozen Eggo waffles and jumped in the shower with them (no no I didn’t let them get wet, what kind of caveperson do you think I am??)
3 minutes later I was in bed. That, my friends, was what I considered the peak of efficient behavior, and I was crushing it.

I knew this was going to be a long day as my stomach began to growl. The house was quiet, and I knew my team was still asleep. It was snowing outside, and we couldn’t leave without an escort, I knew that this day was going to be different.
