November 4th: More Than Just Election Day

There are 57 days remaining until the end of the year. That means 2009 is right around the corner.

Before 2009, though, three very important dates will pass:

First, my birthday. We all know how important birthdays are, right?

Second, Christmas. I have always loved Christmas. It’s my favorite time of year. Between a birthday and Christmas, you really can’t go wrong.

Third, I will be graduating. Finally. I have worked so hard to finish up my Smith degree, and I just can’t wait to be done with it. I’ll by no means be finished with school, but I will have completed my Bachelor’s degree, and only one semester late.

It’s too bad all of this is happening at once, though. If you have a birthday near Christmas (Hi, Anglophile Football Fanatic!) you understand how much it can be a bummer. Now throwing my College graduation on top of that? Kinda sucks. But it will be an exciting week with a birthday celebration, Christmas, and a graduation party.

On top of all of that, I should be hearing from Nursing Schools regarding my application for entry in in Fall of 2009 sometime this winter. My fingers are crossed.

Now please, go vote. Sure, November 4th is a lot more than just election day: it’s Laura Bush’s birthday and Flag Day in Panama. But if you do nothing else today and you live in the United States, vote. After you vote, you can get all sorts of free stuff. So, if you need a good reason to vote, vote to get free stuff. Also, vote because it is your right. Every vote counts.

  1. This is super fantastic news regarding 1) graduation and 2) more school! I have my fingers super crossed for you, although I know your’e a shoe-in. You and I can both wait with baited breath to hear back from our respective schools!

    Also- I applaud your choice of Vader costume, even if it brought tears.

  2. As I already plurked, I actually waited two hours to vote today. I have never waited that long before, but I was extremely happy to wait that long. Interest is good for Democracy.

    PS – Good luck wtih nursing school!

  3. Congratulations on your degree. Completing any degree is no small achievement when one has small children in the home. Rock on Allison!

  4. I voted and our guy won. Yippie!!! It all so exciting. I also have a birthday on December 29th. Yes, it totally sucks. Christmas always seems to shadow my special day. I know how you feel. Congrats on the graduation. That’s a huge accomplishment. I’ll hopefully be going back to complete my bachelors after my little one gets a bit older.

  5. Congrats on graduating soon.

    My birthday is in January and Christmas still overshadows it.

    I don’t know what day it would be considered it’s own day, what is the limit? Maybe January 25th a month later?
