No news is good news, right y’all? We are currently awaiting final results of the 2020 United States presidential election. It’s been *checks watch* 87 years since the last polls closed and things are neck and neck. Anxiety is at an all-time high and the waiting is not making it any easier. But as Stephen Colbert so calmly says, “I know we’ve all got what it takes to wait just a little bit longer.”
It’s easy to get stressed out right now, but listening to Colbert honestly did a world of good for me. Maybe it’s because I had a restless night and am filled with uncertainty or maybe it’s just because he’s not pushing calamity. We all know how low the bar is for an adult to speak calmly and certainly when it comes to politics, but something about Colbert is extra soothing.
I don’t think we will know who our president is any time soon. I hope I’m wrong. But until then, I will hold out for hope. This is the craziest election I’ve witnessed in my lifetime and it’s not close to over. So for now I’ll take solace in Stephen Colbert telling me that everything could still turn out ok. I hope you can too.
