So in the morning I was assigned to (I’m volunteering at OCC) the silent disco. This is a disco where there is no music being blasted through speakers, but rather wirelessly through headphones. Listeners could choose which DJ they wanted to listen to as well (there were two). People filtered in little by little as it just started so not much was happening.

Anyway there was this one girl who was there by herself trying to get into the groove of things. She’d start dancing, get a bit embarrassed with herself and stop. She did this a couple times. But as more people came in and started really getting into it, the whole group started dancing and the girl was joining in with them. It was really cool to see someone dance with people they don’t know and really have a good time, and not have to worry about being judged. So it made me smile that this probably shy girl found a way to let go and just dance, and others were doing the same.

Geeks are the best.

Also we had Darth Vader and a bunch of Stormtroopers come in as well. :P
