doesn’t feel real

i’ve already met with the new exec board this week. i’m still hearing congrats either verbally or via email. it still doesn’t feel real.

what a difference, almost 10 years makes. i remember running for positions on my sorority’s e-board, but kept getting shot down every time. i was too new, i was too shy, whatever, there was some excuse. (and the kicker was that i wound up doing those positions anyway…because whoever got them over me didn’t have their sh*t together. and i did. i was always on top of things.) anyway, in comparison, this victory was sweet. this makes up for what happened in college. yeah, i may not be the most outgoing person in the world-i’m pretty social, but i do have my shy/quiet times-but but being social chair helped in that department, and i knew I could be a great exec board member and enough teammates agreed. they believed in me.

i’m excited for this year, we have a very gung-ho exec board with some great ideas and plans, and i have my own visions for 2006 that i’d like to see happen. they will happen.

in the meantime, this is the first 5-day week i’ve worked since early December. and i got clients coming out of the woodwork like crazy. boy am i exhausted and looking forward to a long weekend. and next week filled with my work events 🙂

and the winner is…

this one is gonna be short and sweet since i need my beauty sleep for a client meeting i have tomorrow morning…but yes, as i hinted previously, i did win the election, and I’m very excited for the upcoming year.

and the weekend pretty much consisted of celebrating and watching football at various venues around the city.

but more on all that later…

election day

well the day is here. today (friday) is the last day of the Flyer e-board elections. and i am nervous as hell. i’m sure the races are close as can be, and it’s anyone’s race. i’d like to think i am the best one for the job-and that what i accomplished this year can back that up, but there’s a part of me that just doesn’t know…

anyway, i asked to find out as soon as possible as the votes are tallied so i can actually sleep on friday nite 🙂 we’ll see if that really does happen.

as far as how i will announce the results…if i do win, i will change something on this blog by noon on saturday. if not, well…i guess business as usual for this blog. (or not.)

cross your fingers, toes, or whatever else for me 🙂

a comedy of errors

ya know, i used that phrase to describe a lot of things that happened in 2005, so now is it only fitting that i use that to describe how i closed out 2005?

i think i have come to the conclusion that i am the oldest 29-year-old ever and that i am so over the bar scene. but i guess i needed one night to get it out of my system…

it all seemed not so bad, right? a bar i liked on the UWS, a cover that was a little pricey, but not outrageous, open bar, a fun girls’ night out. didn’t happen quite like that. took half an hour just to check our coats. then by that time, the bar was so packed, that it took another half hour just to get a round of drinks (and i asked for 2 of each-f*ck double-fisting.) needless to say that was the only round of drinks we got and i was painfully sober that nite. the food and champagne toast at midnight that was advertised didnt happen. there were no guys there i’d even think about kissing at all, let alone at midnight. finally by about 1, we had just about had it-the place was far too crowded so we just left and hung out at my place for a bit.

I’m beginning to think Phil had the right idea-i think i prefer it when we celebrate the new year back in September or October 😉

Would I have had a better time if I had done the Midnight Run? Maybe. But I’m actually a little superstitious about New Year’s…i feel that if I had a bad year, then something I did on NYE led to it and I can’t do it again…at least not the year after. I’m hoping maybe the fact that I am not hungover and i am actually awake before noon will lead to a good year…maybe?? hopefully??

well i do have a few things to look forward to this month…the Flyer e-board elections coming to an end at the end of this week-i’m hopeful, but still very, very nervous about the results. (and if you’re a Flyer and you haven’t already voted, vote now, and vote for me!! you know who you are 😉 ) I have my company’s “fun day” and client party in another coupla weeks, and then the Flyers awards party at the end of the month. so much for a post-holiday slowdown…lol.

and i refuse to make resolutions…don’t believe in them. but i do hope to not make a lot of the same mistakes I made in ’05…time will tell…

let the games begin

so it’s official…i accepted my nomination this morning.

after doing a lot thinking i realized…despite the ups and downs being social chair…deep down, I really did like being a part of the action. and i don’t think the exec board will have the same “revolving committee” problems that the social committee had this year.

some think i’m a sure bet to win the position. me, not so sure…heard i might have some tough competition. once again…this will be a very interesting election.

and just as predicted, i got invites to 2 different b-day shindigs the nite before the Kleinerman 10k. decisions, decisions…i will most likely be leaning towards only getting 1 drink at one of them on the early side.

and can you believe tomorrow is december already? where *did* this year go?

to run or not to run…

nope, not the type of running where you put one foot in front of the other :)…a different kind.

the email reads “you have been nominated for…”

yep, i think you know what kind of running i mean.

so yes, for the 2nd year in a row i was nommed for flyers e-board…not that it came as any surprise, between word of mouth and intuition…

so the burning question…do i go for it or not. i ran for office last year…was pretty much a dark horse candidate at best since i was pretty new. not surprisingly, i didn’t win but i got the consolation prize of being social chair this year 🙂 and let me tell you, that position is fun but not for the weak-hearted, i think planning events in NYC can be one of the toughest jobs ever.

so part of me just wants to kick back next year, and just be captain. being social chair did burn me out a little bit. but the other part of me feels there is some unfinished business…that being better known and having the experience of being social chair under my belt would help my chances…and if i can handle social, i can handle anything.

well i have a few more days to make my final decision…
