Now that I have had some time to decompress, I realize that the election was stressing me out a little. I was burned out. This election gave voters a lot more information to process: press releases from both campaigns multiple times per day, the 24 hour news cycle with all the talking heads, voter information mailed to homes, political blogs, and traditional newspapers, just to name a few. Add to that the fact that most of America believed that this was the most important election of their lifetimes and you can see how people were a little stressed.

I took some time off from the blog from about a week before the election until now. I have been working on a major project from work, but that is not the reason I stopped blogging. I stopped for a while because I was burned out from the election, pure and simple. Now that my candidate has won the White House I can go back to putting my thoughts on paper and enjoying reading the news again. Hope and change has won over the fear mongers and the afraid.

My only disappointment from the election is that Prop. 8 passed in California. I still don’t understand what the fear of same-sex couples is all about, and why same-sex marriage is considered a “religious issue” instead of a “human rights issue” by so many. Let’s keep on hoping for change.
