It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? I must confess that my life recently has been a little hectic, and I’ve barely had time to sit down. But, I have a small reprieve here for the week, and therefore I’ve come to talk about how the society has been going at the moment, around 6 weeks into semester 1 of my 3rd year.
Small meeting like these help you make friends, as opposed to society members.
As I believe I’ve mentioned before, I retained my presidency over the end of second year. Again, the election was a bit farcical, as once again I was the only candidate for the position, but I kept it none-the-less.
Not many people showed up to the first meeting, at least not compared to last year. Perhaps because of this, or perhaps because I just handled it a bit better, the meeting went alright, although only two of the people at that meeting actually turned up again.
For the second meeting, I had a few return visitors from the first week, but mostly new faces. Everyone that turned up to this meeting seemed really into the society as a whole, so imagine my surprise when the following week, we actually seemed to have lost a regular, as only 3 people (including myself) actually arrived. Nevertheless, it was an enjoyable meeting, even if it did have a low population.
For the most recent two meetings, we’ve had a fairly consistent, albeit small attendance group. As I’ve said in the past, I do enjoy these small meetings – it gives you a chance to actually get to know these people personally, and learn what kind of writer they are, and see from their own personal lives how it has affects their writing. Small meeting like these help you make friends, as opposed to society members.
Apologies for this being quite a short one, but honestly, it’s been a fairly uneventful start to the society year. A nice slow beginning where I’m getting to know my society members, and think up the plans for the year.
