The work has been hectic. Obviously, because of the public and political nature of my work i cannot discuss the nitty gritty of it. When i joined this post at the behest of my husband i was very skeptical of it, but the last few months have not been that bad and i have actually enjoyed doing the work. One of the reasons is that i have been allowed to be my boss and i have not been dictated from above or at least not a lot. I have used our political contacts to work with the local and international NGOs and that has been very rewarding. Secondly, most of the people i am working with are young and energetic, including lots of younger women. They have fresh ideas, despite the fact that the top hierarchy of this party is still very much feudal in its outlook and mindset. Things are changing and they will change but it will take sometime.
I am an administrator at the local level. I am also responsible for the dealings with the media. They can be a pain in the butt but frankly our party has not been in the limelight mainly because we lost a lot of ground during the last election.
Personally, my politics is different in ideology from my current associations but something is better than nothing or for being a house wife - which i do enjoy. I am lazy by nature but restless as well. These two opposites of my personality are always clashing with each other and make me take instinctive and sudden decisions. I would like to brand myself as a someone with a analytical mind but the truth is that i very much succumb to my sudden urges. As you can see i also love to criticize myself as well. More on that later.
