Small Groups Versus Large Groups

Any activist should be leading with three people or more.

Small Groups Versus Large Groups

When a small group of a non-profit organization gets together, they're most likely officers taking one or more chances to gather up members and move forward to fundraisers. While coming up with the group's mission statement, the president might be ahead of the local news to know enough about what to say or do. A treasurer may keep the group updated with a budget listing of events, an establishing office, and transportation if needed. An office manager (a more proactive title than vice president) runs the positive vibes and messages to keep the group together. A secretary may assist the office manager with the meeting minutes in which I believe anybody can do this while being openly suggestive with something to write on (a notepad or a laptop). An advocate could be advertising events online or in-person because they would know and count on somebody to sponsor any group moving forward.

Small Groups

I've attended meetings that fill the capacity up to five people. I'd prefer that as a writing group, but you can work with those who interest your skills only after one meeting of good fun. I've also believed in "three is a crowd," so it sounds cool to be called a trio at times. With small groups, I came to realized that it's easy to break the ice with a nice board game or video game over a discussion. So, I'm obligated enough to lead a support group with fun choices with a board game or carpooling events.

Large Groups

I've attended meetings that fill the capacity up to twenty people. I wouldn't raise expectations of the first meeting having a lot of people coming out for a public discussion, but taking a vote in person like any committee or community organization should be a guarantee. I'm not asking determining twenty people for an audience at an open mic because it's not every day everybody wants to leave their home when working full-time. A monthly Sunday afternoon worked out with me to review a few notes and public events to plan in my own attendance- but I can invite others if they press "interested" more in Facebook events made to be public and in-person.

As I'm in deep respects of confidentiality, I've attended support groups for school and in discretional support of a few family members. Collaboration for fun and skillful events takes time for growing groups- even for the smallest local organizations still looking for an office secretary because a student gets so busy with class. Even when you're out of college and living independently with a full-time job, leading a group just might drive you into all sociable acceptance.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
