|They even spelt my name correctly.....|
Anyway back to today's topic but first let me cry....I am now a grown up *wailing* *rollingonthefloor*. Nobody should abuse me o, let me cry well (it is only for today). What made me realise this? After fighting to go to church (it rained like crazy yesterday and refused to stop for hours), I finally got to church and a consultant paediatrician who works at the same hospital I do greeted me and gave me a letter (above pic). Said he personally kept it for me after it was written since we are in the same paediatric department. At first I was like hmmm, what is it o?
Some days before he had asked for my full name (he used to call me Diva...how he knew I have no idea) and I knew something was up. So the letter was not a shock. However the contents was the shocker. CO WHAT?! CO HARVESTER!! WHO? ME?! This small me? How? I am just a Pharm 1. I am not up to 10 years in the pharmacy profession. After thinking about it, I realised I am now a big girl. Growing up all the harvesters and co harvesters and launchers and co launchers that were called in church were big people (adults) so I guess I am now adult....lol. I knew I was an adult since I am just kidding.
Let me explain the whole co harvest thing to you guys. In my church (Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion) we usually have difderent harvests once a year...youth/young people harvest, adult harvest, professional harvest and so on. During that time if there is any major need of the church it is told to the congregation and people are expected to donate. However more pressure is on the chief harvester and the co harvester.
Now the issue is with what amount would do the co harvesting? I have three options: run away from church this Sunday (the youth harvest is this Sunday...you are all invited by the way. You would all be the co co harvester...*grinning*), give what I have (and when I have more give more) or pledge a sizeable amount then give it later when i have the money. So what do you think I should do guys? My mum laughed when I told and suggested an amount. I am sure when she told my grandmother, she would roll of the bed. Me, a co harvester? Okay o, maybe it means bigger things are coming my way. It is all good though. It is for the work of God and that is major important.
While I was still wrapping my head around the co harvesting thing, at the end of church service a lady comes to me and says 'you are a pharmacist, right?' And I go, what again o? She now tells me that a group of female medical professionals where going to give a career talk and they had been looking for a female pharmacist. I was like 'you want me to give a talk? Like speak in public without more than 2 months' notice to psych myself up'. I tried to give some excuses to avoid it but she said even if I cannot come I could help get another female pharmacist that could come.
However as I was coming back home and was thought about it, I realised that talking to kids was one of the things I wanted to do. And here I was given an opportunity to practise and I was letting my fear of public speaking prevent me from achieving my goals. Like God literally dropped the opportunity, I didn't have to ask for it I was invited and fear wanted me to run away from it. I decided that I needed yo conquer my fears. Therefore I have decided that I would call her up and take up the offer but I need moral support aka photographer. I am trying to get one of my friends to follow me and help me out when I begin to stumble.
Oh God! What am I going to say? I don't want to scare them from studying pharmacy. What of if I am boring? I think I would just try to imagine that they are the nieces of my friend who spent some time with me at work or my baby cousins who are all bigger than me in size. Oh well, wish me luck guys. I am now a grown up!
