Let me be clear, this is not a political rant. This is about the craziness that surrounds an election and my sheer joy of not being party to it.
Don’t get me wrong, I voted. Women fought hard for suffrage and I won’t take that for granted.
I am a registered voter in COLORADO, a swing state, which means my husband got the brunt of the noise. Lets look at what might be the tally:
My husband works from home so I was fair about the lawn banners, but he has to pass them to get to the gym.
Emails: I didn’t count emails because I subscribed in the last election and didn’t unsubscribe. There were a lot of emails but I deleted them. Perhaps this was some noise but not that much.
Social Media: I didn’t count FaceBook either because you can hide posts.
TV: There are 5 channels on my cable that are shown in English – 3 fun ones, CNN International and BBC. I watch reruns of NCIS and Gossip Girl so I was able to drown out the two news channels.
Radio: I don’t have a radio and I listen to my paid iTunes music.
My election was an early written ballot that was filled out. That’s it.
God Bless America from Japan and go vote.
