Going for the world record

Those of you who know me or have been reading this blog will know that I am in 11 societies – yes, that’s right, I did say eleven! You will also know that I have 3 non-society non-course-related commitments, bringing my total to 14. This is on top of my 19 hours of lectures each week.

I am yet to regret any of it. It is great for my social life that I am in 11 societies – debating society, speak, Conservatives, maths society, physics society, maths and physics society, atomic, volunteers society, Christian focus, craft society, international current affairs. It is great for my CV that I’m in Union Council and the SSLC. I haven’t quite decided where to put being in the equal opportunities working group yet (but then I did only join that one last night at council).

This is not including, however, my 2 further commitments that I do not generally talk about. I am a kitchen rep for my flat (which isn’t particularly exciting but it is a responsibility so will look good on my CV). I am also, as of earlier this evening, equal opps officer for the craft society – they didn’t have enough people on their exec so I thought I would give it a go as I had nothing to lose and I’m sure that too would look good on my CV. Not bad for someone who’s only been at uni for 3 1/2 weeks!

If anyone has more than 16 non-course-related commitments then please post in the comments section. We could get quite an interesting debate going (or I could prove that I have the most number of commitments out of anyone and the world record is mine).

  1. quality not quantity.. its important to remember that.. i only speak from experience; i am president of a society and one of the exec members is involved in way too many things and therefore doesnt contribute their best to the society and it is really really frustrating. Yes, they will all look good on your CV, but recruiters aren’t looking for a list of societies/names, they are looking for skills and quality!

    Good luck though, and its great to see someone so enthusiastic!

    But societies aren’t commitments, I’m in 9 but do you see me going to most of them, hell no!
