Can’t really focus on anything right now. For better or worse I’m completely consumed by the upcoming U.S election. Now that the brutal crescendo of campaigning has come to an end, the time to finally make a decision is. So far this election is shaping up to be quite different than any other I have experienced, mostly due to the fact that I’ll be sleeping (hopefully) while the rest of America is voting. Normally I get to watch things unfold as they happen, state by state, county by county, city by city, and if CNN had its way, probably person by person. But that is not the case this year. Instead I’ll be in standby mode, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s not often that you can go to bed one night and wake up next with a chance to feel completely different about your country, but after eight years, I’m ready. After eight years of blunders and incompetence it’s time for a change, and Obama is the man for the job. Here’s to Hope! Now get out there and vote!
