VUWSA Trea$urer

The start of the second half of trimester two: the sun is finally creeping out from under the blankets of cloud, people look slightly less depressed than in the first half, and clothes from both genders seem to get tighter and shorter. Unfortunately there is one awful task we still need to get through first: exams.

Hopefully, the following public service announcements will at least make for some sweet procrastinating times on the sixth floor of the Kelburn library:

Tax Advice

As the famous thinker and philosopher Homer Simpson once said, “I can’t take his money. I can’t print my own money. I have to work for money. Why don’t I just lie down and DIE?”. Money issues suck. This is particularly the case near exams, where there are already enough stresses on your plate.

If you haven’t done it yet, claiming your tax back is a good way of making money that little bit less stressful. You can also do free online, instead of paying a company a hefty commission to do it for you. As a friend on Facebook just posted: “Just did tax return online – took all of 2 minutes. WIN.”.

Need help with this? Then give me an email at nz

If people actually read this, the first person to email me the phrase “Cashmoneys” in size 24 font, wins a bag of Fruit Bursts.

Marriage Equality

On the topic of money, VUWSA has recently decided to support the campaign. Essentially, that involves making a kick-ass website (upgrading the current one) to help promote the marriage equality bill currently before parliament. It will even have a fancy petition you can sign.

Problem is, they are still short some money. This is where you—an amazing student—can help. Even $5 to the cause
would be an amazing help. Go to CampaignForMarriageEquality to find out more information on how you can donate.

Cool? Cool Cool.

In Which a Boy Leaves

: - SPONSORED - I’ve always been a fairly lucky kid. I essentially lucked out at birth, being born white, male, heterosexual, to a well off family. My life was never going to be particularly hard. And so my tale begins, with another stroke of sheer luck. After my girlfriend sugge
