In a few days, it will be Election Day. We’re halfway through the presidential term, so we can’t vote in a new one (unfortunately)! We can elect the people that will control both the Congress and Senate. This is an important decision, since the fate of progressive laws is on the line. Sadly, there is a party in government that is hellbent on stripping away people’s rights, all for party loyalty. Doing what’s right is no longer important. I can never understand why people are so afraid of this president. Everyone knows that he’s unstable, yet our government remains asleep, turns a blind eye toward his actions. Will anything stop his reign?
Halloween is over, yet it doesn’t mean that the ‘spooky’ theme needs to be put away. I’m one of those people who sticks to eccentric, dark things no matter the time of year. Some of the new books out there sounds amazing to explore really soon.
Right now I’m reading ‘After the Quake’ by Murakami (I don’t have the book in front of me, so I don’t want to get his name wrong). It’s a short story collection, and so far I read one of the pieces. Perhaps it’s due to the translation, but he has an interesting way of writing his characters. I can’t wait to read the rest of the collection.
Today is my cousin Phillip’s 30th birthday! It’s such a milestone year. Currently he’s living in Florida with his family. He has a very busy life, but he does what he can to make sure everyone is content. I’m hopeful that I can see him in August for the wedding.
