Spring Break just isn’t what it used to be

Written by on April 3, 2012 in Asheville, NC, Charlotte, NC - 7 Comments

So here we are, smack dab in the middle of Spring Break 2012. No, I’m not doing keg stands at Myrtle Beach, or going to wet t-shirt contests in Key West. Not this year.

I’m chilling home sweet home style in the fraternity house, making redneck waterbeds for my little guys (more on that later this week) and thinking about how happy I am for everyone who had the foresight and the funds to take their kids on fabulous vacations to Disney World, Sea World, San Diego and various beaches.

(LIES. I’m disgustingly jealous. The green from my eyes is coursing through my veins and seeping out of my pores.) However. I’m thinking ahead to what I’m told will be the equivalent of blogger Spring Break in June.

It’s Type-A Parent Conference, and I booked my hotel room and bought myself an early bird ticket way back in October. Type-A Con has moved this year from Asheville to my hometown of Charlotte, so it is that much easier for me to get my tail Uptown to go on my belated Spring Break.

You should come, too. You don’t even have to be a blogger or a parent (though if you are, there is Kid-Con, which entertains your offspring). There are still some tickets and hotel rooms left, but I’d suggest registering sooner than later. From what I hear, there is a lot of swag, networking opportunities, not-to-be-missed parties, and gifted speakers. And amazingly lovely attendees who look much younger than their age. You’d never guess their last Spring Break was in the 1990s. Ahem.

If you would like to join me and my rowdy friends at Type-A Con in Charlotte June 22-24, 2012, and get 20% off of your registration fee, go here.

If not, you can just sit at home, sadly clicking through my pictures on facebook of how I’m having THE TIME OF MY LIFE while you are sitting home all sad you didn’t sign up to go. IN YOUR FACE, SPRING BREAK!

    Spring break=Conference? Huh? I’m confused. Or still “impaired” from the spring breaks of yore….
