On Voting:

So this happened today for the first time in my able-to-vote-adult-life.
It didn't take long -- only about 7 minutes. 
It was at my local high school and I ran in 15 minutes before the ballots closed. 
It really would have seemed insignificant to anyone else, but after I had done it I felt so proud!
I had exercised my right to vote!  I feel like voting is something you hear about in elementary school, learn about in high school, watch riots in other countries regarding it, and so the fact that I actually finally was able to vote felt amazing! Which was surprising, because I expected it to feel insignificant :)
