As the season gets crisper and the smell of fall is in the air, the students of Ravenwood start thinking of the fall student teacher elections, and the new student body president elections.
Some people are quick to nominate themselves and their closest friends and favorite bloggers, and others like to wait until closer to nominate and try not to leave out any of their friends.
I love this time of year. I love to see how people react under pressure.
How do they promote themselves? What do they said to sway the voters?
It's almost as fun as running!
Which leads me into my main point. This spring/summer when I, ahem, lost, I swore vengeance and a crushing victory in the fall!
Well folks, I regret to say that this fall I will not be running for Student Teacher or Student Body President.
I do, however have a few good reasons why that I thought you'd like to know.
My main reason is school and campaigning don't mix. Yeah, I feel like right now I have to focus on my school work and I wouldn't be able to give the election the attention I want to. Because I am very serious about having a blast with it!
A couple other reasons are due to the fact that Mr. Wolf Redfist, who runs the elections, changed the rules this fall.
First off if elected as a Student Teacher, you have to be a moderator for the school forum on Diary of a Wizard and you must write a guide for your school. Well I think that's fine and dandy, but again, I don't have the time to do that sort of thing right now.
And finally, and I think most important, you have to be a grandmaster in order to run for Student Teacher and Student Body President. Of course I'm not effected by that rule, but I am not really keen on it. Why do they have to be a grand? I know some really awesome players who are not grand masters who I would vote for over a ton of grandmasters. I can name two right off the bat. Destiny and Jessica. Why can't they be nominated? I want everyone to be a part of the fun!
Well okay thanks for listening, or reading really, my big long explaination.
DON'T vote for Heather! :D
