Holy Responsibilities Batman!on March 31, 2008 at 4:48 pm
Since I started going to college, I’ve pretty much made the choice that I’m the one who’s in control of the grades I get, the portfolio pieces I create, the quality of my work, my attendance, and all the things that matter concerning my future in whatever multimedia career I land in. So I decided since I am in such control, that I’m not going to waste my time at school. I’m going to get the best grades I can and make sure my portfolio reflects nothing but the best of my abilities. I’m still kinda of undecided on what day job I’ll try to get after I graduate. Of course, since I’m busting my buns to have a killer combination of a sparkling resume and a portfolio full of not just beautiful eye candy but actual completed projects such as games, websites, and more … I’ll probably get snapped up into some kind of job by employers who just can’t resist the temptation that is me. LOL!
My eccentric attitude confused the instructors of course, and they didn’t know what to think of me what with my hair dyed green not to mention the loud and brash way in which I express myself. After each instructor got to know me and the amount of drive I have behind my odd mannerisms, they started to enjoy my refreshing amount of creativity and humor. Now each instructor who’s class I excel in sees me in a new way and respects me a lot more than their first impression would have allowed even if I wasn’t so off the wall on the first impression.
The other students at the school take this differently. A few of them really like me and there are a few who hate the fact I’m a show off. Hey, I’m not a stuck up show off though. I’m open and willing to help everyone in my class learn the things they need to get to my level or even beyond. Cuz, let’s face it, if I have no competition, then I can’t really exercise myself in those areas. So a lot of the students respect me as well.
All this prattling has gotten me off track. Our Multimedia Chair, has started a Multimedia Club called Creative Media Minds. It’s to be student led and student run. I made the posters for her for the interest meeting which was this past Sat, the 29th of March. I almost forgot about the meeting even being on Sat and after my class I was all set to leave when some of the students reminded me about it. So I attended the meeting. There we discussed ideas for the club, requirements to be in the club, and who’s going to run the club.
When the Multimedia chair asked everyone in attendance who should be elected as President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer … everyone unanimously voted me in to be President before I could even say anything. It was rather unexpected so I didn’t even know what to say. I’m honored to be the president of the club and I’ll do a good job, but I was actually trying to cut back on my workload this quarter. But, I do believe I can handle it despite the stress of last quarter. I’m still in shock though.
To show that I can handle such responsibility, I suggested that the Multimedia chair be the Treasurer despite the club being a student led organization because it was a more responsible way to go. Picking a student to handle funds for a club is a bit tricky. I didn’t want to mean it as though no one else in the club would be responsible enough but that it would feel more comfortable to have someone who’s already in a responsible position handle the money matters of the club.
Now I have a great club full of talented people to run, fun events and field trips to plan, guest speakers to invite to the school, and more great things to do. This is going to be a blast and I’m ready for it.
