Well, I screwed up royally yesterday with some people at the Campus Times. There's been a couple problems I've been talking about with people lately and I sent out an e-mail about them, but my e-mail only made things worse and confused everyone and apparently misrepresented the views of pretty much everyone I mentioned.

I don't know. Earlier I started to write a long post explaining it and telling my side of it. But there's really not much to tell - I didn't think things through, showed bad communications skills, or made weird assumptions about how people relate, maybe all three - and now's not the time to tell it. This is a busy and stressful time of year, obviously. The half hour I've spent writing this is time I should have spent working on the assignment due tomorrow that I've barely started, or the half dozen things that were due weeks ago I haven't found time for.

And... well, a couple months ago a friend told me that I should only worry about things if I'm likely to feel mad, guilty or embarrassed about them in ten years. So I'm going to take his advice, in spirit if not to the letter of "ten years". If I get settled in at home over the summer and I still feel this is worth writing about, I'll do it then.

In conclusion, this I think this is the funniest thing I've seen online in months.
