It has been an unbelievable amount of time since I last posted. I'm not surprised. I ran for office this year, and decided that I wouldn't post on the blog while I was doing it. It was an amazing experience, one I'm still processing, and I'm glad I did it. Unfortunately I did not win, which was hard. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into the campaign, and it's a weird feeling when the numbers come it all at once to say 'the thing you were trying to win? You didn't'. But I'm recovering.
Part of running a modern election, of course, is doing lots of social media, and I'm considering taking a break from that now that the election has run. It's a bit too much. So I may be here more, posting publicly, and in long form.
