5 Things I Learned Canvassing During the California Primaries (POMEmag)

door.jpg

Hey fellas!  New piece from me.  I canvassed during the California Primaries (and the Nevada ones) this year for about 3-4 weeks and it was definitely a game changing experience for me.  I never thought that I would have a voice strong enough to move voters, or that I’d be able to keep up with someone else in a conversation regarding politics.  I mean shit dude, I’m the dummy who likes to sing Suppertime from You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown every time she feeds her cats.

So here are some lessons I learned on the trail, and what you might learn too once you get out there and advocate.

This one was a dream for me to write.  It’s a relief to have this one off my chest, although the comment section is upstaging me right now in terms of inside knowledge haha.

Then you were gone

But everything is still the same
I’m here alone like I always was
Homing in on the whispers between leaves
Instead of drifting

Dad

Did you know it would be like this

Probably
Ha
That’d be so typical
So color me unsurprised Continue reading
