I have a new voting district this time around. So I was all patriotic and proactive and googled my new location and printed out a map while I was at work. I finished all my other errands and headed over to the voting spot. I park and walk over to XYZ volunteer fire department where the line is out the door. I collect my voting swag and I stand in line for 15 minutes (in the rain I might add). Finally I get to the front of the line and hand over my voter registration card and photo ID.
The old lady says “This is district 2, you are district 1”
I said “it says right here XYZ VFD, this is XYZ VFD isn’t it?”
She says “yes, but there’s a downstairs too, you need to go try downstairs”
My name was indeed listed downstairs, but I was so irritated. They need to put up some freaking signs! — I did have a good chuckle at the adorable 80 year old woman trying to explain the electronic voting machine to me. hehe
Today was a big day, HUGE day for me… I went and registered for my Spring nursing courses! So now I can officially declare that I will have NO life starting in January. In addition to my regular 40 hour work week, I will have lecture for 3 hours Monday nights, Clinical for 8 hours Tuesday nights, and labs for 7 hours every other Wednesday. They also informed us we should expect to shell out approximately $700 for books, yikes! And our uniforms/other items will probably be $100+ too… I’m still excited though, I can’t help it, I am just so pumped to start nursing school! A little intimidated by the hours, but pumped anyway 🙂
