Coups and Milestones!

Thursday, June 21, 2012

I'm a member of the Aberdeen Opera Company. Since the economic downturn we have had some difficulties with money just like any other organization, however recent events showed that our committee had been dropping the ball due to their own personal commitments. This coupled with money issues meant that we had been stagnating.

So we had our AGM last night and after 3 and half hours emoticon we had finally elected a new committee and started a plan of action to reinvent the company and ourselves!

I am officially a committee member! And I am so excited. I know it could be horrific and there may be really tense and dramatic times but I'm really excited to try and help the company as a whole!

Anyway, during the re-election something akin to a coup happened, the chairman stepped down and a new one took his place. The new chairman then went on to begin the election of a vice chair, the current vice chair had not said that they were stepping down. However, the chairman didn't even question it and almost had one of his friends in the seat before the current stood up and explained that she was not stepping down. (DRAMAAAAA!) Anyway, it went to a vote and we kept the previous vice chair, this put the new chairman's friend in a bit of a pout!

Many other little controversies happened, but I just couldn't believe people could be so selfish AND ridiculous!

I don't ever have to deal with drama like that in my life, I purposefully steer myself away from that! So seeing something like that happen now that I have distanced myself from that type of behaviour was really shocking...

Hopefully we will have a fantastic year despite the drama!!!

I've also passed a milestone! I have officially lost more than 50 lbs since starting again in March this year! I am so proud of myself. I haven't been this weight since my first year of university and just can't wait until I'm below 200!

Onederland here I come!!!!

    50 lbs now that is emoticon emoticon I am sorry you were caught up in the drama of your performing club but sometimes we all get caught in places we would rather not be.
    I wish you well on your performances as well as your journey to better health.
