Bliss is for those who live in oblivion.
As the title suggests, I'll be heading state-side in February for a weekend to attend a MUN conference at Harvard in the delegation representing my university. I am beyond excited, and cannot wait for that weekend to arrive! I have been waiting for this conference for three years now, and am so glad I was selected to participate in this wonderful UN simulation.
For those who do not know what Harvard National MUN is: It is a simulation of the United Nations which gives students a platform to actively engage in political and diplomatic debates with other students, all the while maintaining the position of a country that one is assigned to represent. [For instance: Be part in the UN High Commissioner of Refugees as the delegate from China, or France.] It is a wonderful opportunity to train public speaking skills, get involved with current affairs of politics, and create a network of friends across the world. I have met wonderful people through this and am absolutely happy that I have been part of other MUNs beforehand. Of course, this kind of activity has little relation to artistic, or creatively inclined people, I am aware of that. However, I wanted to share this little bit of good news from my side of the world.
That being said, I doubt any of my watchers are in Boston?
While I will be very busy for the whole weekend, if anyone happened to be around there, it would be a pleasure to meet up for a coffee.
Either way, just my two cents of happenings! How are you guys?
