It is 2AM on October 30th and staying true to quantifying my life in terms of how close Election day is, it is 5 days away. I have sacrificed my bank accounts and standard of living by not working when I could have been and I have let my my grades suffer by working on this campaign since August. The thought that in 5 days it could all be a waste is a little frightening. I just cashed out my 401k to make it through and I’m stressed to say the least.
I decided to get back into school after 6 years and my performance this semester has been less than stellar. I hope I have time to pull it out of the gutter once the campaign is over. I hope.
I do this because it is a cause greater than myself and my hope for the future overpowers my concerns for my present. That is why I do this.
