ubiquitouslyme: (Concerned)
It's been a busy week. I have a psych test tomorrow, on three chapters - intelligence, social psychology, and psych disorders (depression, schizophrenia, OCD, etc.). I was also drawn into going to a student government meeting the other day (free food and I was broke) and now I am running for Secretary/Treasurer for the 2006-2007 school year.

It's kind of a weird student government, because it covers both North and South Campus of a community college. Each campus should really have its own government, but not enough people are interested. And the SGA budget for the year is like $100,000. We don't have any sports teams but we are picking a mascot. And we have such a wide variety of age groups attending - since Pillowtex went out of business, all the people who worked in the factories are going back to school on someone else's nickel. I think we might actually have more people over 30 as students than the just-out-of-high-school crowd. But all the stuff the SGA does is geared towards the teenyboppers. Like hula hoop contests.

The SGA for the last big event this years, is spending $5000 to have some comedians come in. It just seems like a lot. I know people enjoy it. My suggestion, for next year, at one of the events hire masseuses (masseuseaux?) to come in and give free (to the students) shoulder rubs.

I don't know, I guess I am turning into an old fuddy-duddy...

In other news, the school has a Relay for Life team and I am on it. I will soon be setting up a webpage through the official website, so if you'd like, you may donate to our cause over the internet once I get the page set up. For those who don't know, Relay for Life raises money for cancer research, and we will be walking throughout the night at the Rowan County Fairgrounds.

Ok, enough talk for tonight...
