Yes, I know I’m late, but wow. Just wow. TC2006 has come and gone, but it was one of the best times I’ve had. These four days that have just taken up my March Break were amazing. But, my TC2006 adventures started way back in December though, during the logo contest and the volunteer retreat. Continue reading
The final day of TC. Uploaded seven pictures of the final worship session to flickr.
Today, I decided to skip the rec presentation practices to go to my team’s interaction. That really made a difference for me at TC, in that it was much more enjoyable with a team. We really were incredibly close to being the most spirited team, I think. AV team finally made those cool t-shirts we were thinking about.
Final TC wrapup to follow in the days to come.
First day of TC 2006 Senior. Finally, less Hillsong, more new songs. Only took eight photos, uploaded two.
I’ve been thinking about volunteers at TC and teams. I know that they want all of us on teams whenever we’re not doing anything, but I don’t think it’s beneficial at all for us.
For me, being on AV, I’ve barely had any time with my team at all for the past two years. Whenever I have been with my team, it’s been awkward, because everyone is getting to know one another, and I just pop in and out because I have to go to practices and stuff. This year, I think it’s worse because I’m only with them during rec and I’ve missed all of my interactions today. I must seem like a random dude that just pops out of nowhere.
That’s why I didn’t join a team at Junior. It’s totally awkward and is only really to keep us busy.
The other thing is that it’s very demanding and tiring. After doing media or worship, everyone involved is probably ready to sleep. But, what do we have after media? Rec.
So yeah, I don’t think there’s any point in putting us onto teams unless we’re going to be there at least for some interactions. I think the volunteers benefit more from interactions with their teams than rec. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have them join a team at all.
Much smoother today. More doing nothing during rec, but I started taking pictures of the ‘tjcac’ teams. Jim Chen is hilarious. Uploaded 15 out of 123 pictures to Flickr. Two more days to go and a whole new crowd.
Since TC this year ends at 9, I actually have time to upload my pictures and write a bit about it. Out of the 75 pictures that I took, only 20 were good, and those were the ones that got uploaded to Flickr.
On Saturday, someone made the observation that TCCC locks everything. It’s impossible to get anywhere because everything was locked. It was impossible to use anything because it was all locked. This has caused much frustration. Even the speaker, today, was like, ‘maybe we should put a few holes in their stuff after’ after much struggling to connect the laptop on the balcony to the sound system below.
It was quite busy until rec, at which point, we all floated around, doing nothing. I eventually planted myself with Jacqueline and Kim, since they, SMUs, were like us: they had nothing to do for two hours.
Like pretty much every TC I’ve been to, the first day was spent to get the energy going. And like pretty much every time I serve on AV for an event, there’s something crazy going on.
I must say that I like this year because the team has actually gotten together and are beginning to know one another. We also got together with media and worship and prayed and stuff, and on Sunday, we went out before Concert of Prayer.
More summaries after each day and one giant overview after everything’s done.
