So this month has been very busy for me. Those that know me know that I ran for ENV Senator for ASI. That means that I'll be the Senator for the College of Environmental Design to the rest of the University with Associate Students Incorporated. I ran unopposed, That is typical for the ENV Senator. My friend who is the current Senator Ran unopposed and also endorsed me. Because our College is somewhat tightly knit and most people know each other through probably 3 degrees of separation rather than the typical 6 it was easy to find out if I'd be unopposed or not. This made campaigning fairly easy.

On top of that. I am also the President of Two campus clubs. The Student Chapter of American Society of Landscape Architects and Emerging Green Builders Club. I've admittedly let EGBC slightly fall through the cracks because of the rest of my duties, but i hope to next year put some more energy into them.

Since it is the end of the school year I've got to hold elections for all these clubs for next year. It was tough to get people to Sign up ASLA let alone EGBC. I really had to recruit a lot of people and a lot of hopefuls ended up not following through and becoming an officer. What DID make my job easier was that all positions were unopposed. again. most people know eachother so that makes things a bit easier in terms of elections. EGBC will have trouble developing officers though. We'll have to see what happens.

So as you can see, I've been extremely busy with the school year coming to an end. I've got a lot of wrapping up to do and some starting up of my new position on campus. I've not put as much energy into this blog as I'd like partly because I have a weekly journal for my Design course and a weekly blog for my Regenerative Studies course which will remain anonymous.

But i have things to share about my trip to Duroville, Driving a tractor, and some more farming i've been doing. I've got some projects i've set for myself over the summer so we'll see how those go.

I'm glad to see the Goddess's Blog stay strong. She's a great voice for the Pomona community. when i feel down and out about Pomona I just take a trip to her site.
