Starting my revolution

27 03 2013

It’s come to a point that I should just write whatever is in my head. Holding back does not help and will not create anything new.

In hall right now, we are in a transition stage. We are soon holding presidential elections for a student council in hall and at one point of time, at about 3 am in the morning, local time. I was sitting in my room with a friend listening to a very convincing arguement about why I should run, and how much of a difference I could make and how capable I was. I took most of it with a pinch of salt; he’s my friend, he could be biased.

After that convincing conversation or perhaps it was just because of the late hour, I printed the nomination forms and was ready for submission.  There was almost no backing down.

Until I spoke to the current president. He gave me very good insight into his job, about how he served and did not necessarily lead, how his changes were minute to avoid an uproar, how he was limited. And how it was a great honor to serve.

I have a lot of respect for the current president. Not a lot of people can do what he is doing, and I am sure he is relieved that his term is coming to an end. After talking to him, I don’t know if I could do what he did, I don’t know if I would be willing to give up so much for so many, I was not sure if… I could lose myself to that.

It may not have been what he felt, but it was what I saw.

I could not be limited by expectations that came with being the president in order to make a change and difference in hall. I never want to be limited by anything to make my difference anywhere.

If I want to make a change, I will make it on my own terms.

I guess, that makes it harder for me. I have refused to take up regular jobs during my break, wanting to do my own research and projects. I want to start a project on campus first before expanding audiences and I’m not getting the support I need at the moment but that does not necessarily matter. I’m writing, songs, scripts and more. I’m learning what I want to. I’m gathering inspiration. And I will do something phenomenal.

I can’t tell you what it is yet because it has not manufactured itself in front of me yet. It will be great. That’s all I can tell you.

For all those in hall, I will create some form of chaos next year, there is no doubt. For the rest of the world, your turn to feel my effects will come soon enough.
