The Leadership Role
The leadership role at my Youth unit has been opened up. I have requested an application form.
I am probably mad for even considering taking on such a big role while still doing my degree. I’ve already led a unit once, I’m also probably mad for wanting to do it again.
Oh yes, and by applying for the role, I feeling like I’m stabbing one of my friends, NurseryMan, in the back. Which is always good.
So now, I have the application form sitting in my inbox. I’ll be honest, I haven’t even looked at it yet. I don’t have very long to fill it out, in fact I only have until the end of the week. I suspect that if I applied, and didn’t completely cock-up the form, I’ll get the position (assuming someone better doesn’t come along, I’ve been pretty much told this). Our bosses are not overly pleased with how NurseryMan is doing the job. To be honest, neither am I.
More importantly, it looks like he might not be applying. So, if I apply, I won’t be betraying him, not really, right?
Somehow, my conscience doesn’t quite see it that way.
Arrggghh! I thought deciding to apply was supposed to be the easy bit…
