I did in college. It made me feel smart and current and I could join in all the college-y political discussions going on around me. Then when I wanted to be a journalist, I kept up with it so I could, you know, be a journalist.
But at this point in my life, thinking about politics stresses me out.
I don't know why. Maybe because I don't like trying to figure out who the "good guys" are and who the "bad guys" are. Maybe I don't like figuring out who's telling the truth. Maybe I don't like all the lines that are drawn between people—lines that aren't even accurate most of the time. Maybe it's just because I'm more easily stressed out than I used to be.
And maybe I'm just lazy. I suppose that's always a possibility with me.
Don't get me wrong—who's running the country is important. But sometimes it just feels impossible to know what the right thing to do is or who the right people are.
And I. Hate. Campaign. Ads. Well, except this one:
FACT: I get most of my political information from Saturday Night Live!
What are your thoughts? Do you follow politics? How do you decide what to do come election time?
