Just Say No

I got offered a flat a couple of days ago. I said no. The flat itself was fine, but the people in it were just too bizarre. They both go to Central St. Martin's (not on my course), but they were just so damn anti-social, I knew that I would be miserable there. They go to school, come home, go to their rooms, shut the door, put their headphones on and work. They have a lounge. Do they use it to hang out? No. They use it to dry their laundry. I think that sums it up.

Yesterday, my course had to elect student representatives to act as messengers for any problems people on our course might have. These reps then deliver the messages to the staff. Two people volunteered themselves, and then two of the people in my group tried to elect me. I would have been the only one who was actually elected. I was flattered, but I said no. I've done that sort of thing already...I worked in Student Activities for 2 years...and there were two other people who were excited about it...I didn't want to take it from someone who really wanted it. Call me crazy, but I don't want to be a complaint messenger right now. I've got other things to tend to at the moment. ;)

Word. The same thing happened when I started school. Only a couple of people ran for class president. I feel like I could have run and maybe won, but I have other goals.
