So back in April Skynet won Best Society of the year award within Clubs and Socs. Which was great! All the work that was put in by so many people and for people to finally sit up and see a computer society win this award within UL, was a great feeling.
Skynet also runs its own internal award system set up by Grainne Daly/Wrinkles for Admins and a Skynet Person of the year award set up by Daniel Nagle/Sith. The awards are designed so that the members nominate a short list is arrived at and put to the members to vote upon. So it seems this year I won the Skynet Person of the year award, 2nd time for me 🙂 Yay 🙂 Kinda nice to know people actually liked the stuff I did. Even if it did involved large chunks of my sanity being lost when having to deal with Anal retentive cunts on legs! Sometimes dealing with some people it’s more than one can handle to bite ones tongue and not want to take a swing at them, but I did in fact.
I should point out before I came to college and while I was in college I organised promotions all over Munster.(Hired politely let go of staff who had no manner of time keeping or able to take direction for events) There were different types of promotions Drinks, alcoholic (yay) non alcoholic, sweets, gadgets, large company info days like for Dell or Eircom in Limerick.
So I do have a fair bit of experience in running large scale events, which did stand to me when running SkyCon. Unfortunately little anal cunts don’t always see it that way.
Saying that, I’ve left the running of Skynet now to others. Which is weird but good at the same time. I’m looking at the stuff that is being done and it’s different. While different is good. I hope it works out well as so far it has even if some things were done that really shouldn’t have been. I’ve told Daniel and Olivia, the new President and Treasurer that I’m but a pm away for questions and answers, and to make use of that. I did help them do the budget and I think from what they learned that weekend I should be getting a few more questions in future. Which I’m really glad to get.
