15.10.2004 – Friday 15 October – Reflections on Time & Jolt
- • I woke up to go to uni, decided that I was sleepy, and didn’t. This means I missed both my lectures. I did eventually end up at uni, because I had to tutor and had an assignment due by evening. Ironically, I did not complete the assignment, which is a reflection on my time management, until five minutes before it was due. This, I believe, shows the precision of my time management. I also voted in the union elections, voting for “Jolt”, as they are more right, and hence less wrong, than the rest. “Focus” seems to be the most popular, but they are boring and stupid. I had dinner at Govinda’s on the way home, and the train stopped for ages, twice, due to powerlines over the tracks.
- • I would like to know why every single musk lifesaver breaks into four pieces when I remove it, even though I am into the third roll.

- Who the hell were the other groups? I had no idea who Truth, Freedom, Bolt and Opportunity were....

- I have no idea – I don’t follow Union politics, and wouldn’t even belong to the Union if it weren’t compulsory, which is a travesty of democracy in itself.

- There is something so contradictory about compulsory unionism. I've ranted on about this so many times before before: http://blog.lucascosti.com/index.php?blogid=33

- Now Howard controls the senate (after June next year) I'd assume they'll push forward with VSU again, since it was part of the original Higher Education Package.

- In a country where voting is compulsory, it makes sense to have compulsory unionism – as neither concept is democratic.
