Election 2012

Morning, all! I just wanted to make a quick stop in to show off my mad voting skillz:

I generally tend to refrain from any topics of potential controversy on this blog, mostly because I’m a delicate flower who is easily crushed. And also, because whenever I *DO* talk about political things, this tends to happen:

Lesson: hilarious things you say on Gchat WILL be immortalized as a Facebook status, folks.

So ANYWAY, you see why I rarely post anything related to my political or religious beliefs on here, hahaha. And I’m really okay with that! I mean, this blog really isn’t a forum for me to try and foist my personal beliefs on you all anyway. It’s a forum for me to try and foist details of my personal life on you! Duh!

But, being serious for a moment (arrrrgh, it’s so harrrrrd): Regardless of how you vote, why you vote, or who you’re voting for, just go out and vote today. Today is a day where every citizen should take advantage of the fact that we have the option and ability to vote at all. And that’s coming from someone who is admittedly more in the “politics-schmolitics” camp than anything else. But I still voted!

If you’re still on the fence about making the trip down to the voting office (it took me less than 10 minutes to get in and out–gotta love Falls Church!), consider this:

No vote = no complaining about the President for the next 4 years.

So c’mon, if for nothing else, at least protect your ability to complain about this country’s leadership. It’s, like, a basic human need! 😉

Happy voting, everyone!


  1. Happy Voting, friend! I am absolutely on pins and needles seeing how it’s all going to work out.

  2. Proud that you got out there! We have lived in too many places people have no say in their rulers! Glad you can appreciate that Americans have that chance! And for those who insist that there is no difference between candidates or parties…THERE IS ALWAYS A DIFFERENCE… You can always at least decide between ‘bad’ and ‘worse’. Good job!!

    • Lol, right? It’s so fancy. I was excited when I got it. 😀

  3. Thanks for this! Remember that unless you are a white, property-owning male (in which case you could probably have voted anyway), people fought and sweated and starved themselves and sometimes died to get you the right to vote today! Honor those people and get out there! You exercise, you eat your vegetables, you go to work — all things you sometimes don’t feel like doing, but you do anyway. Voting can be like that. Just do it for everyone’s good!

  4. 10 minutes! I guess it depends on the polling place? I heard others had an hour wait this morning at our polling place in Timber Lane. We just had 25-30 min wait at Timber Lane when we went around 5-ish, thankfully.
