So I've been going to several events for newcomers, international students etc. And it seems like several of the people presenting had been attending the same course in how-to-make-people-listen-at-presentations because they used similar approaches. And like Americans they are very good at speaking loud and C L E A R.
One thing they did was have a quiz and give away prizes. Since I'm the misfit that I am and really talking about what I know (must have been a pain in the ass in school) I couldn't help myself. So... I won three things. Yeah I should stop being such an asshole... A goodiebag from the student union (UMSU), a pair of UofM-mittens and a keychain. Jaay.
Notice the different goals UMSU has.
Is classism when one gets discriminated because of class?
In other news..
If you speak swedish then you might be interested in this post I made recently about the definition of a 'new word'. I'm quite proud over it.. and it took me quite some time to write.
