Running for a position of authority in the school??? - January 22nd 2009, 12:14 PM

Hi guys!!

At my school we have houses, like in Hogwarts I guess, with a strong holding within the school. For each house there is a house captain, a deputy and a sports captain. I want to go for one of these positions, not a school position (head girl, deputy head girl, sports captain) but I'm a bit dubious.
There are 2 other girls running for house captain (deputy is after, so I don't know who will run for that!) but they are AMAZING and everyone in our house knows them because they are our house's drama reps, so they run drama for our house. One of them is completley so gonna get captain, and I think the other one has a strong chance of getting deputy and I kind of think she wants it more. So is there any point in me runnning? I really want to do it...but...Also, its a lot of work and I'm worried about the organisation front of it, as I have depression so I get stressed quite easily. But on the other hand I like keeping myslef busy, and I love my house.
Also, if I'm running we do a speech type thing. They aren't technically supposed to be very funny, but house ones ALWAYS are. Like the currrent house captain sang a song to the tune and theme of the yellow submarine. Any ideas as to what to do?

You'll never know if you don't try, right? Don't count yourself out before you've even given yourself a chance! If you want to run, run. Don't let anyone stop you. If you choose not to run you may, or may not, be disappointed in the future. But if you run you'll always know you tried. :]

Good luck, if you do run!

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.

you may as well apply, you've got nothing to lose! it may sound silly but quite often schools don't go with the "obvious" choice, i.e. who everyone expects the position to go to. i know my head of year, when giving out captaincy's and such gave some positions to people who were a bit quieter and it really helped to bring them out of their shells. don't be intimidated by these other girls who are applying, sure they sound like they'd be good at the job, but then so would you!. nothing ventured, nothing gained, eh?

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
