Today is the big day – Election Day 2008.  People are turning out in record numbers.  More voters have taken advantage of early voting than in the past, and even more are lined up at the moment ready to cast their vote for their favorite of the presidential candidates.  By tonight the next President of the United States will be announced.  McCain offers up his years of experience, but Obama offers change.  It’s Republican vs. Democrat and it makes me sick.  Why don’t we just call it what it is?  American vs. American.  Instead of actually talking about the issues and making real progress in this country, we just compete against each other and try to come out on top.  And that’s exactly why I’m not voting this year.

The allergy ninjas are dwindling in their numbers, but still managing to catch me off guard with a good bout of sneezes and an insatiable need to rub my eyes.  No longer do I wake up in the middle of the night running to grab tissues for my nose, but I do still wake up every morning practically unable to breathe.  I bought some Zyrtec and Sudafed a few weeks ago to help me with my congestion and scratchy throat and so forth, and they seemed to work for a little while.  Then I ran out and made a quick trip to the pharmacy to get some more.  Little did I realize that doing so would make me pop up in the system as a potential drug addict.

The 2008 Vice Presidential debate was on tonight. The “first and only” of such debates as the moderator described it.

I got so frustrated with how the “debate” was proceeding that I actually turned it off and left my apartment to take a walk, and when I came home and turned it back on the first thing I heard was Sarah Palin talking about nuc-u-lar weapons. The word is NUCLEAR. What is it about this word that seems to be difficult for both her and our current grammatically challenged president? If you can’t say it, you shouldn’t have the power to enact it.

Sometimes I wonder if being stupid would get me farther in life.  I often look around and can’t help but notice some of the stupidest people in positions of power.  I used to imagine the corporate world as a place where everyone worked together towards a common goal of making their company greater overall and learning about themselves in the process.  I was so very wrong.

With the beginning of the Fall semester this year I tailored down my schedule to only one class for multiple reasons, one of the main ones being that I felt it would decrease my stress.  To a certain extent it’s working, but I fear that it’s at the sake of my sanity.  At the beginning of every class my professor comes in and puts up a quote on the projector and has the whole class read it aloud.  It’s something about finding a career by finding yourself, blah blah blah.  I feel like I’m in elementary school reciting the pledge of allegiance every day, or in an alcoholics anonymous meeting repeating the same thing every week but secretly never meaning it.
