Singsoc Com 04-05
-anal comment- Why’s Cuifen’s surname the only one listed as a first name? It reeks of inconsistency!
Anyway. So I got the post I was aiming for. Not too difficult, actually, considering that nobody really contested. Still, well. I guess it’s back to vaguely-councillish work. Should be a lot lighter than council was (considering the size of the Singaporean community here), though at the same time I’m interested in actually finding out just what exactly can be done as a formal university club, and taking a more active role in the whole thing than I had in VJ council (admittedly, Locker IC wasn’t the most happening of jobs).
(Like I’m convinced that there are untapped ways of sponging off university funding for our own benefit. That is to say, to draw on the goodwill of the university to provide enriching experiences for our members. Ah, semantics.)
It’s kind of funny how I ended up running for Singsoc comm. After council I was so sure I wasn’t going to go for anything like this ever again. It can be fun, yeah, but it’s also really draining at the same time, and that slacker part of me had decided that enough was enough.
Besides, I wasn’t really planning on getting very involved in Singsoc, when coming to study in the UK was such a great opportunity to experience interesting new cultures, ditch the boring ol’ and all that jazz.
Then I ended up mixing with the boring (comfortable) ol’ anyway, and later figured that it’s not actually very taxing to do stuff for people you get along with, and it could actually be pretty fun.
So what do you know, here I am again. I’m having little flashes in my mind telling me it’s all a terrible mistake, but. Well.
Here goes, then.
