YES!

Tomorrow is a big day for me.

Back in school, I was always the quiet one. I wasn't the invisible, wallflower type, but you'd never see my hand go up when questions were asked and I have never volunteered for anything in my life.

Well, here I am now, getting ready to be a student facilitator at YES 2012 camp at Nilai University College; and I am actually looking forward to it. It’s over the weekend and goes on for two days.  I have picked out two outfits and done all the research on the speakers and the topics to be discussed.

This is so not like me. I never thought I’m the leadership kind. Mostly owing to the fact that as a kid, when my report card came, I got ’Excellent’ for everything except leadership, for which I always got a ‘Good’...or worse, ‘Needs Improvement’.

Anyways, besides the excitement of doing something important for the first time in my academic life, what I’m most concerned about is the coffee; whether there would be enough of it to last me through two days.

Allow me to explain.

I’m not a morning person. I need my coffee to wake up and I need more of it to keep me going throughout long days. The camp starts at 0745 on Saturday morning, which means I have to be up at least by six thirty. I get to come home at around seven or eight at night and gotta be back there at 0745 again on Sunday.

This is making me think twice about why I have actually joined this thing in the first place. Oh yes, it’s for an important cause and they’re gonna give me a certificate for participating which will look good on my CV.

No really, I believe it’s important to learn how we can contribute to our society, country and even the world, and I really think it would help me be better in the work environment. I really really do :D
