It's been a few months since I've written an update and it's just about time I did. Two months ago I finally turned eighteen and legal, got myself registered for next year's local elections and I can't express how much happy I am to get this much for a community involvement.
Just a month ago, the current editor-in-chief of our school publication offered me the greatest job of the year (and probably a great achievement for me) and words were lost upon hearing the offer; I was first in line as candidate to succeed her as EIC of the publication. Can you believe that? All the fruits of my labor is waiting for me to reap it.
The downside of it is the year I sit as EIC will be the year I will be in my junior year, which most alumni and higher years deem that this is the most crucial year as it will entail a lot of major exams that could possibly wreck brains. I had to think about the offer and sought for the advises of my parents, relatives, a few of my professional friends and close friends from high school. Most of the adults advised me to take the opportunity, especially my English teacher in high school and also our school paper adviser during my stay as a SPEDGAZER staff. My closest aunt told me the same thing, she also added that it will be a good thing for my resume when I graduate and start to work.
At the end of the day, I might accept the offer and start to renew my procrastination habits but I may have the luxury of delving into more reading materials, written blogs, online journals, the normal cliche, and drink more tea.
