I haven't ranted for awhile so I figured I got nothing else, so here goes.
Why is it that the inability of the federal government to pass a budget means that I have to cram six months of work into three days? We've been given a ridiculously short timeframe to get all of our proposals submitted so that the government has 4 months to process them. Because it takes them that long to push a few buttons. And we are expected to do it in just a few days. Something is wrong with this picture. It is not like I can write proposals based on funding amounts that I still don't know what they are. And have everyone at my university approve things.
OK rant is over now. We can all go back to our cheery selves.
Have a good Thursday!
