As I am writing this piece, I am onboard the train from Linköping back to Lund, after a weekend together with the other fellow U9 members.

In Felicia’s chronicle, she talks about her list of pros and cons to apply for a position within the board of LundaEkonomerna. It reminds me of the time when I decided to apply for the position, which I possess right now, and the time I have in front of me. Why did I want to become the Vice President of LundaEkonomerna? Well, I wanted to be able to affect my own, as well as other students’ situations, at an educational level, and also increase the member value. Speaking of improving the education, what were my election promises? First and foremost, I wanted to change the situation of the places to study at LUSEM. Having somewhere to sit is for me a given since studying without having a place to sit sure makes it a bigger challenge. It was quite a brave promise I stated since nothing has happened in the last 15 years. What led me to believe that I could change it this year? I think it is important that even if you cannot see any progress, it is important that you keep on working for a change no matter what it is about. In my case it is influencing the faculty. I still have not kept my promise but, me and my fellow colleagues within LundaEkonomerna, are working hard for an increased number of places to study.

However, as of right now I am glad I am on the train and not at the university since I have somewhere to sit and write this chronicle. But should it really cost me 450 SEK?
