I’ve had loads of fun with my many commitments. I ended up with 18 different commitments by yesterday but was starting to consider what could go. I hate being kitchen rep, for example. Before this, however, I decided I’d have a crack at going for one further commitment. I failed miserably! I’m not too disappointed by that as I knew that I didn’t stand much of a chance. I just thought I would give it a go as I had nothing to lose.
I heard that commitment number 18 (NUS regional conference rep) only applied to yesterday’s conference – or if it is after midnight, Tuesday’s conference – and not to all regional conferences in the year. I also really enjoyed the conference I went to so wanted to go to the others. I decided in council that this was what I would do (or more correctly, attempt to do) so stood to be a NUS regional conference rep for the rest of the year. I, however, was not elected so will not be going to any more conferences for the time being – though it is highly likely I will at least consider standing again next year.
This means that I am back on 17 commitments. I don’t see this as a bad thing but it is always the better commitments that I end up losing first. Now if only I could figure out how to no longer be the kitchen rep for my flat!

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).
