Tuesday is Election Day (& Other Stuff)

This isn’t a political rant. I promise.

Over the last week I’ve found some websites that have helped me become a more informed voter. While I 100% believe it is your responsibility as an American citizen to vote, I believe that it’s 100xs more important that you show up to the polls as an informed voter. These people are making our laws and representing our country- you need to know who you’re hiring.

+ This is probably the best thing I’ve seen. If you put in your address or zip code this site tells you exactly who will be on your ballot. I get confused about who to research or what names I’ll come across (except presidential candidates) so this is a really awesome tool!

+ If you haven’t see this site, it identifies which candidate is most similar to (and different than) you.

+ If you’re looking for an exit door on November 9th then you should take this quiz. It’ll tell you which country is best for you post-election. I got Canada but I think I’d probably head to Switzerland. (Nothing against Canada!)

On Wednesday night I stayed up until 1am to have my heart broken. *sigh* I will be a good sport and tell all my Cubs/Chicago friends “Congratulations!” (Stephanie, Olya, Amanda, Emily, Lisa), but I’m not liking y’alls pictures on IG or your celebratory tweets. #SorryNotSorry #ClevelandAgainstTheWorld #Believeland Next year, guys…. Next year.  😉

Real quick I’d like to diverge from my drama-free, productive, real-talk personality and admit that I’ve been switching on episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. If you like these kinds of shows I think that’s totally wonderful and you’re totally wonderful, but usually I steer clear of this kind of entertainment just because I don’t care. So…. I know I’m probably late to the party, but who the f*@$ lives like this family? What is life when you can hope on a private jet for a night in Vegas, wake up in your own bed the next morning, drop $3,000 on a pair of shoes, and walk around in half a sports bra and booty shorts at the age of 19. I also follow Kylie Jenner on SnapChat (I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. HELP ME.) and I die when I see the outfits she wears and the clubs she hangs out in and the money she spends. Woof. Does she have her own house? I know nothing about these people but I’m just so…. floored, I guess.

I had no point to make. That paragraph was a waste of 90 seconds. Sorry…

Is it just me or are fortune cookies getting lame? In the last week I’ve gotten “A fine is a tax for doing wrong, but a tax is a fine for being successful.” Uhhh… ok, Hillary. (That was a joke. Don’t crucify me.) Then I got, “Never throw caution to the wind.” Great. Thanks, Confucius. (And ok, yeah, maybe I had Chinese food twice in one week. It’s fine.)

And now let’s end with some funnies:

    1. Oh my gosh… that fortune is ridiculous!! I have a fortune that I kept that says, “Don’t worry about the world ending. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” Ha!

  6. There is a quiz to take your exit strategy? That is hilarious!!!!
    I used to follow a lot of the Kardashians & then it just irritated me on the lifestyle they life. & I’m struggling to get decent health insurance. The screwed up parts of the world. Needless to say, I deleted all my followings – except for Khloe. I love Khloe. She seems real to me.

    1. I can’t understand living with such excess. And the problems and drama that they have is SO unrelatable! While watching the show I did get that witty, sarcastic sense from Khloe and she did grow on me a bit. Maybe I’ll start to follow her on IG. Right now I just follow Kylie (and I have no idea why??).

  11. Speaking of fortune cookies, I saw one that someone posted that said (paraphrase bc I can’t remember the exact quote): “Go away I’m sleeping. Yes, fortune cookies sleep too.” Which I thought was amazing. I’m sorry you’ve essentially had your heart broken twice this month so far, and it’s not even half over. Praying for our nation and my friends of all demographics today.
