Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — If you’re like me, you’ve spent a lot of this month accidently eavesdropping and subsequently being annoyed by, arguments about ‘policy’ and ‘the economy’ between equally uninformed people; well, you just missed your chance to say something about it because the second week in October was Pet Peeve week. There’s always next year.
If you’ve missed all of those, there’s no need to panic, you still have Newspaper Carrier day (20th), National Bologna Day (24th) and “Punk for a Day” day (25th), as well as a whole host of others, so find some time to celebrate this month.
Today is “Evaluate your Life” Day, a time for reflection and a perfect opportunity to get a head start on some positive life changes so your New Year resolutions this year won’t be identical to last year’s. As October comes to a close, there will be a sharp increase in events where you’ll want to yell at a teenager who just got into politics (via twitter) and thinks that they know everything and you just don’t get it.
Chances for you to get overly worked up about topics you don’t think about for most of the year will suddenly be everywhere, but remember, voter fraud has never made you late for work and a lack of oil drilling on public land is not the reason your internet is so slow. It’s during these stressful times that setting down our differences and celebrating what brings us together is the most important.Vincent Davis II is a Cornell graduate, DJ, and market development specialist in the IT industry.
