Busy Bee!

Why do I always get involved in organizing community events that I do not profit from?

They are costly in terms of time and effort, as honestly speaking, I have too much stuff juggling in my hands to actually bother with them.

Maybe I’d just got to learn how to say no, but the moment someone offers me the opportunity to create something out of nothing, I can’t help but be excited and take upon the challenge.

For example, we’re on the way of creating Taiwan’s first amateur comedy night featuring Asian performers. With contacts from Taipei’s better Toastmasters and some professional comedians, it’s going to be a success (or at least we hope so), and we’d pack the entire house!

There’s also the wine tasting we’re organizing this Friday — the seats are already FULL and the numbers are still increasing so we would have to turn a few people down (Sorry, it was in first-pay-first-serve basis; you snooze, you lose).

And lasertag tournament next Saturday.

Aaaargh, checking my social diary, I can’t help but shake my head.

No longer am I doing something limited to my organization, but am also part of the Welfare Committee in my company, as well as doing community project organization for the English speaking community in Taipei.

The problem is, I only have 24 hours a day like every one else, and along with my hectic work schedule, my huge project this June, studying for the CFA and organizing events for the Taipei community, I have my hands full.

So goes back to what I should do: Prioritize.

Just wondering which one should I do first!

Aaaargh, are other people like me? Or am I just giving myself unnecessary pressure?

Why do I always get involved in these sorts of mess?

Or maybe such is a reason why life’s always been colorful.

Cest la vie then.

And yes, I promise to cut back on the activities I do going forward.

Cheerio peeps and do behave.


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    Amazing all the things you find to do in Taipei. You are very busy indeed. Been here some 6 years and have no idea about half the stuff you find going on. Here’s to ya’ making friends and finding things to do.

    You’d be surprised how much stuff you can do once you immerse yourself in the foreign community. Things are happening all the time; my schedule’s fully booked weekly that I have to actually block out the time for me to study. 🙂

    People usually approach you once you start. If you let me know your interest, maybe can refer you? Tons of organization available.

    No, am not just a member. 🙂 How do I do it? I don’t know myself! But I hate to be bored.
