|| pissed off
Get this: I just got back from my RWS 200 class and the teacher (a GA) informed me that all TAs and GAs in the CSU system are going on strike starting on Thursday. This means I could possibly not have my finals, nor recieve final grades for two of my classes (Comm and RWS), which are taught by GAs. This all, of course, depends on how long this strike lasts, but considering the fact that, according to my GA Mike, the state has not even recognized them as a union, it could be a while. I have a Comm final on Monday (not likely the teacher will be there, but she mentioned a sub or something might happen), then I'm supposed to turn in my final paper for RWS next Thursday. These are two classes that are required for me to register next semester. I'm not too stressed, cuz I know a ton of kids are in the same boat, but it never ceases to amaze me how the financial woes and inadequacy of political leaders at the state and city level continue to fuck me and my family up the ass. (I attend a state university, my father and sister work at a state university, my mother works at a city school.)
I mean WTF?! Arnold just appointed Alan fuckin' Bersin as California Secretary of Education!!
WT fuckin' F?!?!?!
Arnold: "Let's see, the San Diego School Board closed out on his contract and basically kicked him out because of what a collosal jackass and fuck-up he is, so let's put him at the state level."
Fuckin' brilliant! This guy really ought to stick to oiling himself up and posing in a purple thong.
One thing I think is funny is how he has that commercial where he's talking to people in a cafeteria supposedly during their lunch and he says stuff like "I'm going to make Cahlifornia fiscally responsible." and one of his proposed budget cuts will allow for more hours of work before you get to take lunch!!! It's ironical, huh? lol
"So who's in charge in here? ... Cuz I'd really like to meet him." (Get it?)
PS, is this TA strike happening at your school too, Mike?
Oh, by the way I'M DONE WITH FUCKIN' CLASS FOR THE SEMESTER! Only 3 finals left. Summer, here I come.
