BOI ITS YO VP ACADEMIC

Andrew McBurney - VP Academic
Posted on: November 24, 2017

It’s been a ride fam. 16 months later, and it’s finally time for me to say goodbye.
When I started out as your VP Academic, I could count the number of people I knew on council in one hand. I didn’t know anything about policy, and I didn’t even own a pair of coveralls.
16 months later, I still no nothing about policy (LMAO), but I now have a pair of coveralls with quite a few patches on them. More importantly, I’m proud to say I’ve made many lasting friendships during my short time in office, and I can confidently say, I don’t regret my decision to run.
It’s been a lot of strenuous work being your VP Academic, but it’s been a very rewarding experience.
As I stated last week, I’m going to miss being your Vice-President Academic. I hope my contributions made a difference, and hope for the best going forward for the future of the Engineering Society, the Engineering Faculty, and the university as a whole.
With that said, I just wanna say:
Somebody has motioned that I should drop my mixtape
The hottest mixtape there ever was
So I’m picking up the mic and adrenaline is spiked
As I try to live up to the buzz
Well, I’m hashtag winning and my record’s spinning
Look to the crowd and the crowd’s not thinning
Didn’t make tunes just to go show off
Well too late now cus this mixtape’s dropped
So much to do, so much to click
Just to be VP Academic
You’ll never learn if you’re too chilled
We’re letting the temperature build
Hey now, I’m a fly guy, spittin’ rhymes now, okay
Hey now, got my mixtape, put it on now, press play
Engsoc’s feeling so cold
Heating up the place since I enrolled
It’s a cool place, so they want me to warm it
I’m getting on stage so my fans can swarm it
And the society begs to hear it
Judging by the votes and the ruling of Kieran
The ice we skate, is getting pretty thin
My mixtape melts it so I’m going to swim
My tape’s on fire, how bout yours?
That’s the way I drop it and it’s gonna get warm
Hey now, I’m a fly guy, spittin’ rhymes now, okay
Hey now, got my mixtape, put it on now, press play
Engsoc’s feeling so cold
Heating up the place since I enrolled
[Instrumental]
Hey now, I’m a fly guy, spittin’ rhymes now, okay
Hey now, got my mixtape, put it on now, press play
Engsoc’s feeling so cold
Heating up the place since I enrolled
Somebody once asked me if I could lead a class
I need to mix myself some beats for a tape
I said yep, happy to help, education’s where I excel
Til you all learn to fan your flames
Well, I’m hashtag winning and my record’s spinning
Look to the crowd and the crowd’s not thinning
Didn’t make tunes just to go show off
Well too late now cus this mixtape’s dropped
So much to do, so much to click
Just to be VP Academic
You’ll never learn if you’re too chilled
We’re letting the temperature build
Hey now, I’m a fly guy, spittin’ rhymes now, okay
Hey now, got my mixtape, put it on now, press play
Engsoc’s feeling so cold
Heating up the place since I enrolled
Thank you to my Ghostwriter Katie Chin for writing the lyrics to my Winter 2017 mixtape <3
