Story time: I did some study/work abroad in England while in/immediately after college, and I was in London for one of the New Years. My mother FaceTimed with me and we watched the London fireworks from my hostel window.
Then she went to bed. She had celebrated the New Year, why wait up until midnight?
It was so glorious that it has become our family tradition. Every December 31, at 7:00 PM EST, we send each other Happy New Years texts and pop open the bubbly grape juice. After a cup and maybe some chips or cheese, we tuck into bed at reasonable hours. So, when this post goes live, as far as my family is concerned, it’s basically 2020.
(I anticipate being up for another 5 hours trying to catch up on emails).
Quite a busy weekend, with even Marianne Williamson remembering that she’s running for President! Pete Buttigieg outstripped everyone on the email front, as always, and Joe Biden made me very uncomfortable.
Christmas brought a lull this week, but the emails are pouring in faster and faster as the year comes to a closes. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have dwarfed the competition with their donation asks, but Pete Buttigieg is still sweeping the field in terms of email volume.
As a note, I have family in town for the holidays, and I do prioritize them over campaign emails. I will try my best to get a post out on time every day, but I cannot guarantee they’ll be on time this coming week. Thank you for your patience!
Post-Debate-Day is just as debateful as Debate Day, but Pete Buttigieg was the candidate whose post-debate emails resonated with me the most. I just wish he remembered that less can be more.
Thursday was a Debate Day, which is always full of emails. Sure enough, I received over 20 emails after the debates began at 8 PM ET. Most of the candidates wanted money before the debate, during the debate, and after the debate.
Despite it being a historic day for our country, the third successful impeachment of a sitting President, not many candidates had a lot to say on the topic. Those that did… well, they weren’t always the most appropriate, in my opinion. Looking at you, Joe Biden. And Tulsi Gabbard wanted to explain why she didn’t vote one way or the other.
