yeah, i've got a big rant coming, but i'm not up to writing it right now... topics include:
1. UMBC MUN class (previous entry on it privated and will be frankensteined with more correct info after I've totally had a chance to put my thoughts in order)
2. Finding out I've been essentially kicked off the MUN team at UMBC by SGA (not the team) because I'm a graduate student (SGA has forbidden MUN from using SGA funds to help the team go to conferences when it includes graduate students, of which I'm the only one) Of course I can always stay behind the scenes, coaching and fundraising and such, but any chance of ever participating in a collegiate conference as a delegate has officially past. Though I even considered myself a "retiree" from participation as a delegate after NMUN a year ago, I never thought that I'd never have the chance to go back. Though what pisses me off more is the SGA right now, the fact that graduate students don't have a vote or say in the school governing system, and that we've been classified as second-class citizens of sorts, not worthy to participate in extra-curricular activites, to be part of the UMBC community. Well, guess what... part of the reason I wanted to continue in school was to be part of that community, and MUN has been a big part of my tolerance of UMBC. As a graduate student, I should have the right to do more than just go to class and back home. I should have the same rights as undergrads to fulfil my free time with engaging activities and learning experience outside of the two or three classes a semester I take....*is steaming, and this isn't even the full, thoughtout rant*
