Today marks a new day in my life as I am no longer an officer of Sigma Theta Epsilon after 8 years of selfless dedication. In a way it is saddening but also a relief after events of the past year or so of stress caused by a few of the other broad members. I think the what hurts the most is that my final request, to stay on till the end of the fiscal year so I could properly get the office ready to turn over to whomever was next, was denied using logic which still is puzzling. I guess my greatest regret was that I never finishwhat I wanted to before my last term was supposed to be complete in 2009.
It is a relief in the sense that I no longer have to deal with the things I have had to over the past year. I also have the time to focus on the important things that I put on the back burner so that I could focus the majority of my energy into the fraternity. I now have more time to do the following :
- Figure out why women hate me
- Train for my upcoming triathlons, which includes dropping weight
- Spend more time organizing my comic collection
- Other projects in the process of development.
I guess the whole thing can be summed up as I feel a great weight and burden has been lifted off of my shoulders, while at the same time the "phantom limb" syndrome is becoming increasingly strong.
I am eagerly waiting the new experiences and other interests I will now have time to pursue in the coming years.
