Presidential Election, Who? Damn, No One Told Me That Was Yesterday


Oh, Election Day was yesterday? That’s so awkward. I had literally had no idea. I can’t believe anyone expected me to remember when it was also a national holiday yesterday: Kendall Jenner’s birthday.

  • 12 more updates from Penn Leads the Vote
  • 11 more flyers shoved in my mailbox
  • 10 more texts from Power the Polls, “I am voter” and Biden-Harris H-Q
  • 9 more calls from phone banks asking who I’m voting for
  • 8 more reminders from my parents
  • 7 more notifications about Uber discounts on Election Day
  • 6 more suspiciously non-partisan political statements from my professor
  • 5 more Instagram videos of celebrities virtue signalling
  • 4 more “Go Vote! And are you still DTF?”  texts from that guy that ghosted me last semester
  • 3 more kisses on the mouth from Hillary Clinton
  • 2 more Facetimes from Joe Biden himself
