spirit of giving…

16 Mar

im sure the idea has good intent… but this crazy friend of mine put this crazy idea into my mind some time back, and im crazy enough to even consider considering it… in fact, ive been considering it for the past 2 weeks….. and thats considered an act of craziness…

today, in a bit to start seriously thinking abt doing my bit for the Republic, i chatted with this collegue who volunteered with YEC……

and so he was telling me some of the hierarchy and kind of ppl present at meetings and stuff……. CDCs and GRCs and SMCs… and CCCs and RCs and SCEC (i think) and WEC (i think) and YEC………. talk abt abbreviations. if MOE is having too many abbreviations, then the govt is having way too many abbreviations….

 and for a moment, we were trying to figure out what SMC stood for, cos we all know it as School Management Committee…… its actually Single Member Constituency……

so ya……….. considering the crazy idea that my friend mentioned………. i still dont think i’ll take it up, cos i dont think im up to the mark…

but my collegue had another reason on why i should join…..

“join the IAEC…….”

“errrrrrr……. No, dont bother trying to say anything after this…”

“no, im serious. you should join the IEAC, you’ll get to meet potential, good…….. esp so cos their parents might be involved too.. so no need to bother abt screening cos it’ll all be done…. ”

and i turn to CH and sigh… a big big sigh………. and my collegue goes, “no, im serious. ok lets talk seriously. you should really consider………………..”

hmmmmmm……….

anyway, while its crazy to even consider this idea of volunteering to such a magnitude, i dont know if i’ll be able to manage my time well…………

decision: let some time pass……… im still not mentally stable and mentally prepared to engage in major issues at this point in time… but i still like volunteering, and i hope i’ll get to do it someday…. i just hope i dont keep saying, “maybe next time lah” until i reach 50 and then my health gives way and then i cant do it, even if i have the time…
