I’m not big into politics.
I mean, sure I vote and I read up a bit on some of the issues, but for the most part, I focus on the things I’m passionate about and leave everything else to the experts.
I’m what you’d call a something of a political specialist. Yes, that sounds smart!
I am a political specialist: I get extremely edumacated on a few key issues (and by a few I mean like a couple) that are important to who I am as a human and a mother, and then leave most of the other junk to other people. I function best with just basic knowledge on those other things; just enough so that when someone brings it up at a hideously boring cocktail party, I can not be all what-you-talking-bout-Willis.
Besides, I can’t be awesome and well versed on EVERY topic, right?
But, I can take every opportunity to learn more!
Especially when that learning comes straight from the horse’s mouth (which, for the record, wasn’t even remotely horse like).
I (along with a few other Maryland based bloggers) recently had the opportunity to have a serious sit down with the Governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley.
I listened intently…
I got some face time (and asked him about football)…
And, I played Minecraft on my iPad…
Kidding, I was taking notes. On, um, something. Swear.
More of what I learned about current initiatives on important things like childhood hunger and gun regulation coming soon in a Real Talk post.
