I finally did it. It was a bit complicated, but it's done.
"A ballot will be mailed to the address you indicated approximately 18 days prior to the election date you selected."
I'm still registered at Pops' address, but the ballot will be sent directly to me in London. That was the only way I could do it all online. To register as an overseas citizen, I would have had to print up an application and mail it in. And I'm only registered for an absentee ballot for this one election, but that's fine cuz I don't know where I'll be for the next election round anyway.
I met a guy at school the other day from Nigeria, and when I told him I hadn't yet watched the debates, but planned to, he said, "I care more about your politics than you do." Yeah, well, pooh on you! So what if I hate politics? Does that make me a bad person, because I get annoyed at all the bull-shit? I don't think so. And I'm making an effort!
Today between class presentations, I went to the University of London "Freshers Fayre." It's an event for freshman or anyone new to the school, where all the clubs and groups at the school set up booths and hand out shiny pieces of paper. There was a Harry Potter Society. There was apparently no one interested in their table. The two people at the booth looked very lonely, but hopeful. All sorts of stores and restaurants were giving out discount cards. I took quite a lot of stuff home, including dark chocolate flavored deodorant spray. "With the effect of chocolate," whatever that means. What effect does chocolate usually have on your armpits? Are they trying to say that if you use this product, menstruating women will devour you? I was also handed lots of condoms, but seeing as how I haven't met a single Scottish man yet, I doubt I'll be needing those any time soon.
Oh gosh, it's 1am! Good night!!
