This week is so interesting. It has been so much more chill than the rest of November except for today.
Last night at the meeting there was a tiff between two members. One called for the removal of the other and nothing happened – which is good because procedurally you cannot do that. I feel like such a bad advisor because I do not know all of these things yet. Anyhow, that tiff carried over to today. The one that was not following protocol and was asked to be removed texted the other with language that came off as threatening and eventually the police were contacted. It’s difficult trying to manage that because you have to support both students which is difficult.
Another thorn in my side is this stupid guy that thinks we owe him his flight cost because he missed it. No, honey, we do not. Plan better. Curious to see what my boss says.
Matt Lauer was kicked off the Today Show which is so weird to me because I grew up with him on television. Men need to stop taking advantage of their power and not be gross. POTUS also chimed in about it and I’m like – seriously guy?! You are on tape talking about assaulting women. Gross.
I cannot believe this year is almost over. 2017 flew by.
Thanksgiving break has been pretty relaxing so far. I went out for drinks with Cameron, David, and James on Wednesday. Since then I’ve been sick.. lol.
Thursday was nice. We went and spent some time with my family, and then traveled across the state to hang out with Cameron’s. I was feeling pretty rough by the end of the evening.
Friday I literally spent in bed, the entire time. We got back to Ann Arbor, watched some weird gay movie about drag queens called Cherry Pop. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good.
I’m feeling better today! We are currently at Cultivate and Anna is coming to hang out soon. 🙂
I sit here laying on the couch with Ellie napping softly. She is such a little ham, I cannot believe I considered getting rid of her. I mean, I can.. I was overwhelmed at the time.
This entire month has been an absolute shit show at work.
The big vote came up and surprisingly the students passed it by secret ballot, and then the president reluctantly signed it (or will be). It was the longest meeting ever – it went until 3am. Disgusting.
Elections were 6 days later and there were a plethora of problems to deal with regarding that as well. Lots of last minute scrambling because both me and the Election Director have no idea what we are doing. They went live today and I found out one school was shorted by the registrar by 4000 people. We got it fixed and I had a back-up plan because of a loop-hole, but good gravy.
The bus thing starts tomorrow and I hadn’t heard any confirmation from the students so I sent an email last night at 11:30 p.m. and then had to go to the airport this morning to get the permits and what not. OVER IT.
Thank Jesus that the break is almost here because I’m headed straight towards a nervous breakdown. lol
Goodness. This week has been so extra.
Started the week by finding out that the super politically charged item was going to be on the agenda. Add to that a member of the org said some dumb shit around not having enough folks with privileged identities in the org. The group decided to create a committee to look into it further.
Elections are in a few weeks.
The bus thing is in a few weeks.
Cameron said “I love you.”
On the toilet.
He said “I love you” for the first time to someone.
While drunk on the toilet.
I don’t know if I do yet. If I can.
It’s bringing up bad thoughts in my head. Making me reflect on my pass relationships. I don’t know where I’m at. I don’t want to say there is pressure, but of course there is.
Denver was fun but not. It was dirty. Lots of homeless people. Cameron got so paranoid when we tried the edibles. I just couldn’t stop laughing. It was fun hiking in Boulder, though.
Ellie is one year old today! Yay!
Holy cow! I have not written in a long time. I feel like everything is going by so fast and I haven’t had a chance to sit down yet and think about what is happening in my life. I’m going to try to take pause.
Things are ramping up with the issue within CSG. The pres and VP are on opposing sides but it will likely pass, apparently. Not that the passing of such a measure will have any impact, but regardless.. it impacts the relationships of students within the organization. I’m grappling with how to support students that have a high sense of significance.
Halloween was fun! I had people over and everyone seemed to have a good time – some had too good of a time (Cameron and Sam). lol. Cam threw up on the way to the club, and Sam did the same upon arriving home. Cameron greeted Sam and Chris in his jock which I thought was hilarious, and we almost did group stuff.
OH! Also. Cameron said “I love you” while sitting on the toilet. He was drunk, but I was like.. eeek. I think I’m getting close with him, but I also recognize I’m still a little hung up on Tyler. Plus I’m not that great of a boyfriend.
I’ve been feeling like crud since Halloween, though. I’m not sure if my immune system is just down or what.
