It's kind of weird to think that, baring some major disaster, I won't be going to the BelCon general body again. From a social capital perspective, I'm pretty sure that this is bad for me: I have at least passingly met a large number of people thru BelCon, and the value of those connections is somewhat difficult to estimate. On the other hand, I no longer have to dread 7PM Monday, when I decide to subject myself to 1-2 hours of extreme unpleasantness. I don't believe that BelCon is fun, except in very rare circumstances. Especially since If I were there I'd have a hard time not being an important persoin: if not the Parliamentarian, then something very close to that. And I don't want to do that: I want to do other things, like homework. Hopefully, as time passes I'll be able to limit my involvement as I had originally planned. I came last meeting because there were a few loose ends that I wanted to tie up: namely, I wanted to put myself on Judiciary commitee so that someone there would know what they were doing. And people did that for me, since I had to leave for Exalted before that particular election happened. Granted, nothing may come up, but at least I'm there to make sure that something atrocious doesn't happen.
Well, I better make good on what I've said and do some statistics.

Yay getting out. You may not meet as many people outside of BelCon, but it's not like the school's big enough that you can't meet them elsewhere. Also, if you still have friends in BelCon, you'll know what's going on, and maybe even be able to hang out with those people. I wholeheartedly think that getting out is a good thing.
