XC = cross country = Down and UP the hill. Cross-country doesn't include extreme downhilling. I guess you could call it more casual, although a skilled XC rider could handle just about anything. XC would be the type of trail that you would find most anywhere, the kind of riding that you think you want to do. Your bike could handle some heavier downhilling and bigger hits though, being a Gemini. Your full-suspension and the design of the bike lends it more to a freeride type of riding. This just means that it may a bit harder up the hills than your buddies, but you'll have a better ride coming down. Your bike has the ability to do just about whatever you want. You should take some risks, you'd be surprised what it can do.
