In case you’ve been living under a rock, in a cave, deep underground, possibly on another planet, and somehow you STILL haven’t heard, the United States is having an election this year, and, unbelievably, it’s somehow more of an insane, media-fueled circus freak show than usual.
If you’re an American, living abroad, please, PLEASE don’t let being far from home stop you from participating in the process this year. If you want it to be as easy as possible to vote, check out this site:
(I have nothing to gain by this, just trying to help out. Also, yes, I know it’s been about 1,000,000 years since I’ve written anything. I’m hoping that will change soon, now that the kids are back in school, but it’s also true that my purpose in writing this blog no longer matches my current situation as well as it once did. I started it as a record of “adjusting to life abroad”, and now, having been here for 5 years, I’m not sure we’re really “adjusting” anymore. Anyway, there will be more, hopefully soon. In the meantime, please register to vote if you haven’t already.)
