Youth Leader

So, after my lovely accident on my bike, I finally had my Youth Leader interview last week.

To cut a long story short, I had what felt like a terrible interview (though, to be honest, I always think this after an interview), and was then offered the position about twenty minutes later.  At the time I was suitably stunned.  Once I’d got home, the usual ‘oh my, what have I let myself in for’ set in.  Now, a week on, I think I’ve accepted that I volunteered to do this, and that I am actually capable of doing this.  It wasn’t for nothing that my boss (who, from now on, shall be christened TheBoss) said ‘about time too’ after I’d accepted the position.

And so now, I start making things happen.  Right now I need to build up some momentum, so that I can get all the little changes I want to make pushed through before things start flagging.  And then, all going well, we should be trundling along nicely, and we will just need to keep things moving, instead of dragging everything from a standing start.

So, for the first time in a while, I’m feeling optimistic about things.  Because things are moving in the right direction.

About bloody time too…

I’ve now just got to get past everyone congratulating me… Oh, and explain to the parents that the Youth Leader has changed again…  And interview (with help) and select an Assistant (which could cause an argument with TheBoss)… And… And… And…

Oh boy… </Quantum Leap reference>

About The WalkingPlasterDispenser

So who is the Walking Plaster Dispenser? Well, I'm a volunteer First Aider, working with a well-known First Aid charity to help out random people I've never met before (or, more usually, when) they hurt themselves. This typically involves walking briskly (never run...) around after people who are silly enough to do sports or some other suitably daft activity in their free time. In my spare time, I am a graduate engineer, working my way through a graduate scheme with a big engineering company.
