Politicians Have It Easy


That’s the most consecutive hours of sleep I was able to put together last night. I was checking my iPhone throughout the night to see the latest vote totals for the Fast Horse Inc. summer intern search. It was like being the parent of a newborn, minus the wiping.

This is going to be a long week. A long, awesome week. I’m humbled by the number of people who’ve already taken time to vote and implored their Facebook friends to do the same. Quite awesome.

It should be fun watching my self-efficacy decline come Wednesday. The rest of the week? Forget about it. Don’t let me operate any machinery heavier than this here laptop. Never thought I’d say this, but I’m envious of politicians. Their campaigns may be longer, but at least they get their election settled in one day. (Well, in most cases, anyway.)

I imagine my competition will be canvassing their Facebook friends in the same way I have. They may even have larger social networks, all things told. I’ve got a blog — the social media equivalent of a ninja star — but it’s only helpful if you do the following:

  1. Go to the Fast Horse Inc. Facebook fan page.”Like” the page.
  2. Find my video — “Intern Candidate #1: Andrew Miller of Portland” — and click “Like.”

At last check, I was up 7 votes or so. BOOM!
