Today was quite a landmark for me. I voted for the first time in my life! It was a lot more simple than I thought it’d be. The line was fairly short, too, considering I waited until the last day. I’m happy to have played a part in this country’s history.
Later, my friends threw an election party. We got together in their apartment and watched CNN from 6 to 10 pm with pizza, oreos, root beer floats, chips, and cupcakes! Unfortunately, if you weren’t invited to the party and stopped by, it sort of looks like we had a hardcore party. You could even say that we were “election-wasted.”
One of the fun things we did while watching CNN was color in the maps either red or blue and count up the electoral votes. I was fairly distracted by the people in the room so I did not color one. Oh and Geography came back into play of my life. It was quite fun when everyone would ask “Where’s Ohio!?” and “Iowa is the I in MIMAL!” etc. My new friend, Spencer, went as far as quizzing me on some of the Eastern states. I certainly need to brush up on my Geography!
Watch the election outcome with friends and/or family. It’s quite funner than doing it alone at home.
