One of the difficulties I have in the Society is that I want to do all the things.
Case in point: Two weeks ago my lady wife and I attended Altavia Anniversary. I had planned on fighting, but I was still recovering from a bout of food poisoning, so I decided not to. I thought I would join the bardic circle, but while I was wandering about after opening court, the baronial herald asked me if I would be willing to help with field heraldry. I ended up running a field all the way through to finals, and along the way I assisted Their Majesties when one of the Peers of Caid needed to swear fealty. The day after, I ran the monthly College of Heralds meeting, and during the week finished up and issued our Letter of Intent. On Wednesday I finished the last of the Fighter Poems from Crown Tourney that I had agreed to write, and I ran our weekly fighter practice. Friday, I started taking with people about the upcoming Isles Anniversary in November, because I recently agreed to serve as the Event Steward. This past weekend I finished tablet-weaving my portion of my Shire’s Coronation presentation to Their Highnesses, and on Sunday we opened up the house for a brew day, during which time I started some loquat wine, brewed a few batches of beer, and moved along some mead that has been aging for a while. Oh, and I padded my new helm
I enjoyed every one of these things. I think that was about half of the things on my list that I wanted to be working on. I understand this is a common phenomenon in the SCA.
