I’m writing this during election day. My FB feed is flooded with people proudly declaring they voted. Nate Silver gets name dropped every other second. For the first time in weeks, there seem to be a lot of sentiment declaring that Obama is going to get voted into a second term and yet my stomach is knotted up, I feel vaguely anxious, and I kinda wish I had something fattening on hand to stress eat.
In the future when this post goes up, all of this will be over. I might be angry – I am hoping, of course, that I’m exhilarated. But baring some election fuckery, this never-ending campaign season will have come to its screeching conclusion. If you’re in the U.S., like me, you probably need a breather. A bit of relaxation. Some mindless distraction. What are you planning on doing tonight, this first post-election evening?
