First (and maybe last) MUN experience

Just be forewarned that should you decide to step into this domain, it is none of my business if this turns out to make no sense to you. I don’t think my brain has the capacity to think currently.

Still, I’m thankful for being fluent in English. It’s too bad not being trilingual or even bilingual, but at least I have a decent command of at least one language.

Or so I thought before I encountered all the weird protocols and vocab.

amenable: open and responsive to suggestion; easily persuaded or controlled.

amnesty: a pardon extended by the government to a group or class of persons, usually for a political offense; the act of a sovereign power officially forgiving certain classes of persons who are subject to trial but have not yet been convicted

clocked: notice or watch

reconnaissance: military observation of a region to locate an enemy or ascertain strategic features

espionage: the practice of spying or of using spies, typically by governments to obtain political and military information

counterespionage: activities designed to prevent or thwart spying by an enemy

amalgamation: the action, process, or result of combining or uniting

Okay but to be more positive, I guess it was an eye-opening experience. I guess I shouldn’t rule out the possibility of attending a MUN again, but as of now… That’s enough.

About Konfrontasi itself, I think I’ve learnt a lot more about it. (haha considering I knew next to nothing before this) The downside was that the issue felt so out of touch and unrelatable to me now, so 🙁 I think interest in whatever issue is being discussed is key in maintaining interest and engagement throughout the entire duration, and that requires some background knowledge to appreciate and understand the issue or situation at hand. Hah and I lacked the initial interest in the first place. Plus, my shy/introverted nature didn’t help at all. Thanks so much for helping me girl. *rolls eyes*
