Earlier this year the old steam plant for the campus was demolished. I was walking past the site the other day and I saw this random thing. I know it's harder to see, but the steam isn't just coming up out of the manhole. There is a pipe sticking up about a foot and a half. I don't get it. Oh well.

I'm in a petty mood today. Let me tell you why.
I feel like I contribute to my school. I participate, I support my fellow students, I try to make it better for everybody. I help people complete tasks, support when I am available and try to mentor and try to do a good job.
In short, I feel that I give and give and give.
The problem here comes in the fact that I don't feel like I have been given anything back. I found out today that I got passed up for an award that every president, (as far back as the people I have talked to know), has received. I feel passed up. I feel ignored. I'm pissed off.
The kicker is that I just went and checked my mail and I got, wait for it, a "thank-you" card from my insurance company. I think I've been recognized more often by a company I've never met than the place that I am invested in and work in and spend every day in.
Ok, I've met my bitchy quota for the day. Time to go get this grant creation kicked off. Wish me luck, it's the first reading tonight!

Things are getting a little bit crazy around here. The countdown is on to the end of school. Student Government is starting the changeover. The election ended tonight and ballot counting was..."interesting". It will be fun to see what happens next.
Yesterday SGA decided to have a special election to try to attract more senators. It's a great thing because if we don't get more senators to join the SGA will be essentially paralyzed at the beginning of the school year.
It's a great idea. The thing I have been having a hard time with is that people weren't really into helping me for the first election and now they are all geared up about the second. I don't get it.
