I was extremely happy this week. As you may know, for the first time ever, I endorsed the AUB Secular Club for the SRC and USFC elections, and I was hoping they’d land Secretary in the USFC at best. But, they scooped up the VP position (the highest student position in AUB, since the President of the USFC is AUB’s President) and Treasurer (that balances the impressive budget of the USFC ~150,000USD/year) and that’s fucking epic!
This couldn’t have come at a better time, and I am proud of AUB and AUBites for utterly putting other “universities” in Lebanon to shame. When baboons in other universities fight, quarrel and act like KG1 students with their blatant lying and stupidity like what happened in Huvelin in the past few days (and to imagine this university student’s actually amounted to something pre-2005) or vote for 14 or 8 mini-cronies en-bloc, with sweeping victories, AUB always proves there is some hope in our generations.
So, congrats ladies. You’ve made a lot of secular folks proud and I’m confident you’ll keep making us all proud.
