Người mà tôi yêu thương:

. Có thể ngủ mỗi ngày 20 tiếng, nhưng sáng luôn tỉnh dậy (trong cau có) nhất định đưa tôi đi làm dù cho là 8AM hay 5AM, dù cho là Quận 1 hay Quận 9.
. Nhất định không cho tôi hút thuốc ngoài ban công, bắt hút thuốc ở trong phòng vì “Ở yên trong tầm mắt!” 😂
. “Mỗi lần tao không làm đúng ý mày là tao muốn quỵ xuống vì sợ mày giận…” 😂😂😂
. Mỗi đêm đang ngủ xoay qua hôn 8 lần.
. Đối xử với tôi như con vẹt 🐦: “Nói Ngon Ngon Ngon nghe coi!”, “Nói Yummy đi”, “Nói CircleK coi! (Tiếp tục bắt đọc hết 724 tất cả bảng hiệu trên đường)” 😒
. “Để tao lo cho mày. Cuộc đời này mày không cần phải lo cho tao gì hết.”
. “Tao muốn tao có gì thì mày phải có cái đó.”
. “Hỏi hết bạn bè tao đi, mày là đứa duy nhất khiến tao như thế này.”
. “Làm sao có thể kiếm được 1 đứa khác ở cả Sài Gòn này giống mày?”
. Tối trước khi ngủ bắt coi 1000 clips hài để cười cùng. Bản thân sợ ma thì nhất định phải coi phim ma với mình. Cũng có 1 niềm sợ nhện nhưng 1 ngày gửi hình với videos của 57 con nhện để nhát mình. 😨
. “Chúng ta nhất định đã nợ nhau ở kiếp trước rất nhiều!”

Hôm nay là 50 ngày yêu rồi đó con heo kia! 🐷 Yêu mày thời gian cứ trôi đi như 1 cơn gió. Nhanh đến mức ngày đầu gặp nhau như thể mới hôm qua vậy. Mà đồng thời cứ như kiểu đã lâu lắm rồi, đến độ tao không nhớ được trước khi mày xuất hiện tao đã sống cuộc đời này thế nào.
Mày nói thử xem rốt cuộc mày đã có bùa chú ma thuật gì, có thể khiến chỉ trong ngần ấy thời gian tao đã yêu đến thế này? Ở xa nhau ngàn dặm, tao cũng giống như nghe được giọng của mày kế bên. Có xa nhau trăm dặm, tao cũng ngửi được hơi thở của mày. Có không gặp nhau cả mấy ngày, gương mặt của mày, nụ cười của mày như thể lúc nào tao cũng thấy. Tao yêu mày chính là kiểu cuồng dại như thế này.
Đúng là chúng ta nhất định đã nợ nhau. Có thể tao nợ mày, có thể mày nợ tao, ai nợ ai cũng không quan trọng. Tao chỉ hy vọng chúng ta nợ nhau rất nhiều, để cả con đường cuộc sống dài đăng đẳng trước mặt chúng mình phải cùng bên nhau. Tốt nhất đến giây phút cuối cùng của cuộc sống này vẫn chưa trả hết, như vậy thì kiếp sau mới có cơ hội gặp mày lại một lần nữa. 😊

Mày hay hỏi tao về những người cũ đã từng bước qua trong đời. Họ có thể khiến tao yêu trong giây phút ấy, nhưng mày thì có thể khiến tao nghĩ đến nếu quả thật đời này chẳng đủ may mắn để được ở bên mày, thì người tiếp theo khiến tao có thể khiến tao cảm động mà xiêu lòng chắc chắn 100% phải giống hệt như mày vậy.

Tao dùng một câu đã viết cho mày lúc ban đầu để kết cả cái caption sến sẩm này để mà hy vọng mày nhé:

“Tôi hy vọng mối tình lần này sẽ thật sự tốt đẹp.
Mới đôi ba lần bên nhau mà đã yêu thế này, nên thơ như thế này, cảm giác sâu đậm như thế này,… Thì khi em tàn nhẫn, chắc tôi sẽ không tài nào thấu hiểu được.”

Yêu em.
Thật sự rất rất rất yêu em.

I did it. I was able to accomplish a lot at the 2013 International Convention in Vancouver, Canada. This was the event that closed this big chapter of my college career, so the feelings were bittersweet.

I had my own agenda for this event. A more detailed list than anyone can think of and I’m proud to say that I did it all. Here’s what you may have missed from the weekend that really made this an ICON experience that I will never forget.

  • Host three workshops at the convention: Planning for Success, Marketing: Above and Beyond, and the Eliminate Project Tips and Tricks
  • Sold my Eliminate Leis as a fundraiser. I made enough to cover the costs, which is ok by me!
  • Placed 1st in Eliminate Fundraising ($25,870)
  • Danced with my Leadership Academy Class
  • The District Board members who applied for awards all won their awards. 16 awards in total.
  • Distinguished District and Governor… I applied for those.
  • Gave awesome spirit packs that was worth the money and that people could wear everyday.
  • Hosted a District Dinner
  • Brought the most people from CNH to ICON
  • Brought the most clubs from CNH to ICON
  • Won the most club awards
  • Brought pictures up of my District Board when receiving their awards
  • Attend the Kiwanis International Convention
  • Get free stuff from the vendors
  • Catching up with old friends and meeting new friends.

There were more like be in the Talent Show, go to LSSP, be on stage at Kiwanis International Convention, etc… but I’m ok with not doing them. (Maybe not LSSP… why is money such a problem)

My only biggest regret from the weekend was that Camille didn’t get Distinguished Administrator. It hurts a lot because I completed her application and I put a lot of effort into it, but it wasn’t enough. I’m happy for the other District Administrator who received the award because I know her… but I would’ve been 100% if Camille got that award. I feel bad whenever I say that we have so many awards and celebrating as a board, but the most important person on this board and the most deserving was Camille.

Overall, the experience as Governor was amazing and I’m so thankful for everyone who cheered me on with all my challenges, who brought me back up when I felt down, who brought me down to earth when my head got too big, and took care of me every step of the way.

This is my final post as Governor, but this isn’t the end of my Kiwanis Family experience.

Service. Leadership. Fellowship. Always.


I can’t believe we won!!!!!! So much pride for our club and school. I’ll never forget this weekend!!

Ha, so proud I didn’t make a fool of myself and cry. I think I was just more shocked <3

It’s a great feeling when all your hard work has paid off :)
I couldn’t have done it without my lovely members, and the extra special ones who still deserve their ice cream that I promised them. <3

Don’t Jeer the Volunteer

Don’t Jeer the Volunteer

How to get the best from your helpers

By Christopher Martz           

When was the last time you turned down a volunteer in your club or district? Probably not recently, since CKI needs more talented volunteers. In general, people want to volunteer, but organizations across the board make the process too complicated. Applications, interviews and other processes are often unnecessary hurdles that waste a lot of time trying to justify why a person is the right fit for a position. But these processes can end up turning off your most qualified candidates.

Here are some helpful guidelines to assist vice presidents with their committee structures or committee chairmen with their volunteers:

Don’t fire volunteers. Don’t belittle a volunteer by telling him he hasn’t met your expectations or that he should rethink his motives for being part of a committee. You can’t fire a volunteer. Well, you can; but that’s just a nightmare waiting to happen.

Instead, find out what drove the person to apply or sign-up for the committee.

Often committee tasks become overwhelming because members have academic lives, social lives and other factors that get in the way of getting everything done. A good committee chairman recognizes when his or her volunteers are overwhelmed and finds a way to assist. Perhaps that simply means reallocating tasks to members of the committee who may be in a downtime state at the moment.

Volunteers aren’t employees.

So many times we treat our volunteers as if they are employees of a corporation. You don’t need to do a performance review on your committee members. It’s not about the volunteer. It’s about advancing the organization.

Instead, review the products, outcomes or initiatives the committee was assigned. Focus on the mission and not the manpower.

Keep tasks specific and simple.

Speaking of assignments, attempt to give committee members individual tasks that can be completed in five hours or less. Your best club volunteers are more than likely another organization’s best volunteer as well. Good volunteers do not just help a single cause.

Look outside the box to get outside the box.

If you want this year’s committee to do something different from past years, make sure you assign a few “change agents” to that committee—those people (maybe even new members) who have a fresh perspective on the tasks that lie ahead. In the world of collegiate organizations, if it’s been done the same way for the past two years, it’s tradition because no one remembers it being done any differently.

Plan for the long run.

Don’t expect a single committee to change your club in a semester or a year.

Change in any organization happens slowly. Don’t put a burden on a single committee. Perhaps they need to develop a strategic two- or three-year approach to making the dream come true, and then lay the foundation the initial year.

Go outside the club. What if you’re low on volunteers for committees? Have you ever thought about non-member volunteers?

Why does the T-shirt or newsletter committee need all members? Think about asking an outstanding artist to become a member of the T-shirt or newsletter committee and maybe after he or she sees the great things CKI does, he or she will join your club. There are many opportunities to utilize non-members in your committee structure.

In general, CKI relies heavily on volunteers, but does a poor job managing them. Take a moment to rethink what your club or district’s committee structure and volunteer assignments look like. One-third of nonprofit volunteers give up after a year. Don’t let your volunteers fall victim to this statistic.
