I just received this email from my mom. Am I surprised? Well, not really. My parents, in my earlier life, did A TON of campaigning, but before it was mostly city wide stuff. I remember working at game booths at fairs to earn money for the residents association, walking flyers for different causes or people running for office, picking my dad up after spending all day a the grocery store getting people to sign petitions, staying up really late waiting for election results to come in, parties for candidates etc. etc. etc. Was it any wonder that my first major in college was International Relations? I mean it had to be politics related didn't it?
So now I am doing elementary education totally unpolitical right? WRONG! Education is something my parents are both pretty passionate about. My dad reads A LOT and when I was younger he would "force" us to watch these "really boring" civil war movies and we would get paid for any educational programming we would watch... yea you heard it PAID. My mom was an English teacher by university training and then a school board member for eight years... eight long years. At any rate I will probably be politicking again here soon, especially if my parents DO move to Utah because they will be dragging me to everything. I love my parents and their example to be involved! Now if only UTAH were a swing state ;)
