To The Members of the Circle of Janus:

A lot has happened over the month I have been vice president. Much of it has been "behind the scenes", but still very busy & very thought-provoking.

I could go into these issues, and explain why I resigned as head of Operations for the 2006 convention (which is neither politically motivated nor the result of any personal "vendetta"), my concerns with the health and welfare of the club, and feelings about the direction the club needs to go in. I have lots of opinions about these issues, but if you’d like to know those opinions you’ll need to contact me privately.

Were the situation different, I might have been able to just "bring snacks" and deal with day-to-day issues, but there is far more at stake this year. Given the stresses caused by the situation the club is in, I underestimated my capabilities when I accepted the nomination for vice president, ran, and won.

The core fact of the matter is that I find that I am not capable of keeping issues within the club from interfering in my life outside the club. When it comes to a choice between Real Life and club business, and club business interfering in the health and welfare of my Real Life…Real Life has to win.

This has been a devastatingly hard decision for me to make. I’ve second, third, fourth and fifth-guessed whether or not I should do so. I am not a quitter; I’ve stuck it out through many situations in my life that people have told me it weren’t worth it...and had positive results.

However, effective the end of this meeting, I am resigning as vice president of the Circle of Janus.

I would like to thank all of those who voted for me – for their confidence in me and their support. I am terribly sorry if you feel that confidence or support was misplaced. I had no intention of misrepresenting myself or my capabilities.

Again, thank you all for your understanding and support.

Ellen S.

Your Social Dysfunction:
Normal



Being average in terms of how social you are, as well as the amount of self-esteem you have, you're pretty much normal. Good on you.

I don't know that I've ever come out as normal on any test. I am...perplexed. I didn't think therapy would work *that* well. ;)

I did this again because as I looked at it, I wasn't sure I'd answered everything correctly/honestly. It didn't seem to be in line with what I really feel, so I decided to try again this morning. This one seems to be a little closer to where I think I am. The only factor I think is abnormally high for my *true* situation is the financial piece, but they didn't really have options for my situation - other than the fact that I pay my bills on time.
