I am sick. I'm not usually a big complainer when I'm sick but I'm gonna complain about this bout of illness. We are 7 days out from Election Day. I can't afford to be sick. I can barely talk and I'm achy all over :(
I've been thinking a lot about Paul Wellstone lately. On October 25th, it was the 6 year anniversary of his passing. I definitely want to be more coherent when trying to express my thoughts on life 6 years later.
I would like to have one wall in my house that is completely made out of dry erase board. I need to map out my plans and ideas for the election and just other things in life. Maybe I'll just settle for one wall covered in giant post-it notes.
Please don't tell anyone but I don't like carving pumpkins. I like scooping out the guts of the pumpkin but that's about it. I'm such a perfectionist that if it's not exactly the way I want it to look, I will hate it and throw it away. I am a true Virgo when it comes to pumpkin carving. I do, however, adore eating pumpkin seeds. Yummers (thanks, Nora).
I just found out that I was selected as one of the 10 Outstanding Young Minnesotans by the Jaycees. Yay! More to follow when I figure out just what this award entails.
That's all for now. I'm going to take some Nyquil and knock out.
