3 Meetings in one day! Am I that important?
I can’t believe it. I thought I’m off duty as I’m working on my Ph.D research/studies. Unfortunately, I’m getting more hectic!!!
Today is Tuesday and I have 3 meetings. I’m not holding any official administration post but I’m holding a student administration post which I was force to obliged last year. I was elected without democracy as the president of post graduate society for my faculty. There are about 500 post graduate students from various countries under me. As a result, I found myself going here and there, searching for building(s) to attend meeting(s). It’s not my desire to hold this post. I was not around when they elected me. What the hell? Then why was I elected if I’m not around?
It’s too late. I wanted to reject the election before but I’m not good in saying no. But, for the next term, if they elect me again, I’ll be more firm. I won’t accept this post anymore, not for the second term.
As I was about to accept the fact that I’m the president and my wife is the first lady 🙂 , I’m quite disappointed with the commitment of some of my committee members. There are those who show excellent corporation and commitment but there are more that I consider a sleeping committee members. Those who won’t react to my request or the meeting minutes. I may accept another term if I’m fully supported by my committee members. But, if this is the case, I rest my case. I won’t be holding this position anymore later. I just want to focus on my study, research, consultation, online business and off course my family. I’ve got ample headache dwelling with my Chemical Engineering ph.D. I’m suffering to prepare for my professional engineer status.
Do I sound like a guy who has lost hope?
Partially yes. Yes when it comes to thinking of the post graduate society and also the research group that I was asked to lead by my supervisor. I need commitment. The fullest and maximum.
So what are those 3 meetings that I’ve got to attend today?
Before lunch – a coordination meeting to receive a bunch of post graduate students form UMP at SPS.
After lunch – a sponsorship committee meeting for the international conference that my university will be organizing this coming November.
After dinner – Kumpulan Rukun Tetangga (KRT) meeting. I don’t have any idea what will be discuss tonight. Maybe about building a small hut or operational room at a space nearby the TNB power station next to the surau.
Hmmm…If that’s the case, I’ll probably miss Desperate Housewife season 6 that I have been waiting.
p/s: It’s better to spill out here rather than in facebook!!! Facebook is not mine, Cyza Sector is mine 🙂
