Wish me luck!

Standard

Or not, as is your preference.

I’ve voted in four elections in my lifetime. I registered as soon as I turned 18, which was just in time to vote in the ’92 election and have voted every presidential election thereafter.

I’ve yet to have my chosen candidate actually win.

I’m beginning to think I’m the kiss of death, at this point, and I would love, love, love for the curse to be broken today. There are signs that, perhaps, the tide might be turning in my favor. I had no luck with picking governors, either, until the last turn-over here in Oklahoma when my Democrat went in. So, perhaps, the streak has come to an end and November 5th will dawn seeing me having finally picked a winner.

At any rate: Get out and vote, people. Vote, or you lose your right to complain for the next four years. I’ll be going after the kids are out of school, so they can come with me and see how the last step of the process works (they’ve both been very interested in this election). So, good luck to me (with tongue in cheek) but, most importantly, good luck to us all. May whomever wins be an improvement over what we have now (the bar’s set pretty low on that). And may the people who oppose the candidate who wins have an open mind and give our new president a chance….maybe they/we will be pleasantly surprised.

About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
