the uc regents promised more financial aid. i'm trying to find out if people simply dont believe them or it's not happening, because people dont seem to be appeased by it. if there's really more financial aid, i have nothing against this fee hike. if not, then i can understand why students are unhappy. also, some students are apparently misinformed. the girl in this video here: http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/11/19/california.tuition.protests/index.html?eref=rss_topstories&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rss%2Fcnn_topstories+%28RSS%3A+Top+Stories%29 was like, oh, theyre raising it 32% this winter, and then another 32% next fall. uhhhhh no..... its two 15% increases, making it a 32% total increase.... so i think maybe some students are just misinformed which is why theyre freaking out. and theyre saying that the admin should take pay cuts instead... but i believe they have already taken pay cuts... and i believe even the state legislature is taking pay cuts due to the state's financial issues. theres other misinfo in this supposedly reliable cnn video. very interesting. like the $10000+ figure they cite as tuition doesnt include fees. uh, that's all fees actually. theres no tuition unless you dont live in california. i know because i pay it. but ok whatever. media is skewed, even if its "reliable."

anyway. went to westfield utc today that was fun. i smell like 20bajillion diff things now cuz they kept giving me samples of lotion and stuff. strawberry on right arm and citrus on left arm haha. anyway. will go back sometime to hang out and get more samples of chocolate. tho its smaller than valley fair. but valley fair takes days to walk through, so its ok. but they dont have a yankee candle shop unfortunately.

btw i think jesus is pretty cool. always.

  3. You really believe the admin and state legislature is taking pay cuts? You are naive. Just because your mom once ran into such thing in a private business, no way government would do that, it is said they don't even do lay offs once you passed probation and get in a "permanent" position.
