I'm such an idiot

Well, that is how I feel :(

I’ve just returned from going around campus asking random people if they would be willing to vote for me. I’ve had such a mix of responses:

  • Some said they would at least consider it – good, we want more of this!
  • Some (the majority) weren’t even scientists.
  • Many of those who were scientists thought I was weird for asking them if they were scientists before I asked them if they could vote for me – don’t blame me, I didn’t make the rules!
  • One, in the Arts Centre, thought when I asked if she was a scientist that I was lost and looking for the science department – errm, no, I was going to ask if she was willing to vote for me!

I’m now back in my room (I couldn’t think of anywhere else to go tonight) with a rather large pile of work that I really cannot be bothered to do right now just procrastinating by writing on my blog. I guess I really should get to work as I have so much to do this weekend. I’m now really glad I didn’t go to the debating competition at UCL, much as I would have loved to have gone.

Anyway, one last thing before I go that is aimed at all science faculty students. I would really appreciate it if you would at least consider voting for me next week.

    Well I wouldn’t go so far as suggesting idiocy, but perhaps canvassing in the Arts Centre is not the most efficient use of time I’ve heard of.

  2. Maybe I could have done something better with my time but the election is next week.

  3. Voting for what, exactly? I’ve had a look on your blog and I can’t find much, other than the fact you want to be a Union Councillor. Blogs are quite powerful tools – you might find you gain a lot of interest from people on here if you created an entry and set out exactly why you want to be a Union Councillor and why people should vote for you. IMHO that’s a far more productive use of time than canvassing people in the Arts Centre, which is normally a hang out for sophisticated Artsy-type students having a chat over a cappucino in their many hours of spare time… :-D

    P.S. You’re not an idiot at all, Kerri. Good luck with the canvassing.

  6. Thanks, Selina. It is always good to know that there is someone on my side :)
