Election countdown: 8days

I thought I'd be more excited about election day because I thought there would be weekly student debates but I haven't heard about a single event. Though it'd be a nice thing to assume, I know the campus isn't all voting for Obama. Let's start some arguments!

What has gotten me really excited is not only is this MY first year voting, it is almost my father's. He has taken a stand and actually participating in US politics. That's not very ordinary of him. Unfortunately, my vote isn't holding too strong because my vote will cancel out of my fathers which leaves Mccain dominating my house. Thankfully my neighbors know better.

Since no one else around me seems to be doing a whole lot, I have taken upon myself to email my parents once a day until Election day with only one reason (per day) about why they should reconsider. That's only 8 reasons out of many that I have to choose!

Wish me luck.

An open letter to the American people by some of the brightest minds in the world. A very poignant message. You'd think they'd at least use official stationary!

Though I am concerned with the current state of the economy,

I'm not SUPER worried about long term investments.

With that said, my investment loss is at 20.61%.

The main purpose of this post is just blab about what amazing food i made the other night:

Middle Eastern Style Meatballs with Couscous

I got the recipe from here, but I ended up modifying it a little bit. I added 1.5 times as much pepper and cinnamon and added onions and garlic to the meatballs. Let me tell you, DELICIOUS. I also added a cup and a half of peas and a cup of cooked carrots to the couscous. The only little issue I had were the carrots: they were not soft enough. and I wish I had used zucchini.
