"Da only thang dat kept me goin was thankin bout yo thugged-out ass fo’ realz."
March 5th 2014;
I submitted my last Monthly Report Form to the District Secretary today, as well as the Master Record Sheet with all the hours of service our members have earned through their hard-work and dedication. I hope everyone receives all the recognition they deserve because wow what a year this has been.
It still feels unreal that my time as Secretary will soon be over and I no longer have to spend hours looking for funny comics to add to my weekly e-mails, fill out MRFs by every 5th and constantly forget to bug people about CERFs and frantically pull teeth at the last minute to get all of them. Honestly, I’ll miss it a lot and it’s going to feel a bit empty not doing them for a while; I’ll probably go through secretary withdrawals haha. I’ll live though. Eruk will do a fantastic job. I just know it.
I’m sad we couldn’t leave our term with a BANG but I can still find the silver lining in our board’s dense cloud. There was at least some good things that came out of us this year. We’ve all grown as leaders and we’ve definitely learned a lot from our mistakes.
HOWEVER! I’m extremely stoked for our newly elected Executive Board. They are a group full of hardworking individuals and I sincerely believe that they’ll do an amazing job in guiding the club in the right direction. I mean, we didn’t mess it up thatbad…so they’ll be able to pick up the pieces easy. No sweat.
“When I look down at this golden statue, may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you are from, your dreams are valid. ” - Lupita Nyong’o wins Best Actress in a Supporting Role for “12 Years a Slave” at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.She wore a custom Prada ice blue gown that was inspired by champagne bubbles. Little sequins ran along the pleats giving the dress subtly enchanting details. On the red carpet Lupita, a native Kenyan, described her dress stating, “It’s a blue that reminds me of Nairobi, so I wanted to have a little bit of home.” She paired the gorgeous dress with a sparkling headband and mint green nail polish. Her good luck charm was a family totem, a little frog ring that she wore on her pinky finger.Congratulations Lupita!
