I Hope I Don't Forget!!

You know when something is so obvious and in your face, it's easy to forget? That's how I feel about voting.

For the past year, all the editorial work that I have been doing has revolved around voting. Whether it's been working on a book to get out the youth vote, or churning out articles about the hip-hop generation, I feel like my life could be summed up in three words: Vote, Vote, Vote.

With the election tomorrow, I'm starting to feel totally paranoid that I'm going to wake up, go to work, come home, go out to dinner for my boyfriend's birthday, and then, just as I'm falling asleep that night, realize that I've forgotten to vote!
