I Be Back

So, I impulsively decided to come back home for this three day weekend. First, I checked my monetary funds and I still have a loooot of money (for a poor college student) in my account so I was like okay, whatevz. I was feeling slightly depressed so you know… why not come home and try to relax and forget about all those other crazy at-school stresses.

Ooh, okay so you know how I attended the UC Regents meeting at UCLA on Thursday? WELL! There was an article today in the LA Times about it, and in UCLA’s daily newspaper, The Daily Bruin. There is a photo of me in The Daily Bruin!!! Oh em gee… it’s pretty damn tight, I’d say. Though, it’s a hoooorrible photo, so I won’t post it here. Haha, whatever. Who cares. I just still won’t post it. ^_^

I did not get to attend Hillary Clinton, and ughh.. I’m still very bummed. John Edwards was in LA Thursday, but he would be there at around 12:30PM so we were all still in the Regents meeting. Sucks for that.

Okay, today I had a business-y meeting with Paulina and I expressed my wishes to join other boards/committees on AS. For sure I want to be on Student Lobby, SCORE, Academic Affairs Board, and MAAAAYBE Finance Board. That last one is kinda spreading myself too thin that I’d be very useless all over the place just because I’d be trying to do too much. I know I want to go to Sacramento with Student Lobby, and I want to go to Washington D.C. with UCSA/USSA. So… I really enjoy UCSA as well. Christine’s position looks like so much fun… and she’s a fourth year… but some Justin guy might very likely get her position next year. There’s always the year after that, and just never know! I also sort of want to run during Spring for off-campus rep (and there are 15 of them)… just for fun. I really want to be on Legislative Council next year, but you have to get elected. David is having second thoughts on running, which is pretty sad because it would be awesome to run with him and both get the position. (: On Leg. Council you have to join two committees, so there is definitely a lot of commitment required. I’m so down! I’m thinking of stepping down from my ASPB position, so that will free up most of my time for all these other boards.

I had my phonetics quiz in Linguistics today, and I’m pretty confident I got most, if not all of them, right. I did well on my Kanji quiz that I took Wednesday. 17/20. Not bad, I’d say considering how many kanji were on the quiz. School is really fun right now, even if it is slightly overwhelming what with all the AS things I want to join. No matter ‘cus I’m seriously having a lot of fun right now.

W00t w00t!
