Please go join Celestial. 🙂
I voted today (for Kerry, of course). This was my first Presidential election to vote in. It’s not the first election I’ve voted in, though. Of course, you might not have known that from the fact that the first time I tried to submit my ballot into the optical scan thing, it got kicked back. I had thought I was voting for one candidate and I ended up accidentally marking that I was voting for 2 different people for the same position. The machine kicked back my ballot and I had to take the messed up ballot back and fill out an all new one. Luckily I already knew who all I was voting for, so it wasn’t taking me forever. I paid more attention and didn’t mess up that time. I felt a bit embarrassed by the whole thing, but I know accidents like that happen.
I’m annoyed with some people. I know that not everyone is “into” politics, but I think that everyone should have at least some interest in politics and in who is running for what office. People need to be aware of political stuff because that has a major impact on everyone’s lives. You don’t really think about it, but much of what we do in this world has ties to politics. Even breathing has to do with politics. I don’t think people should have to know candidates’ positions verbatim, but they should know what issues are important to them personally and they should vote for people who will fight for those issues.
Tomorrow is my intake appointment. I’m a bit nervous, but I know everything will be okay. I have to be completely honest with this therapist, but being completely honest with a therapist is kind of scary. I know how crazy I am, but I’m not exactly sure that I want this other person to know.
