Last night, due to seriously screwed up serotonin levels, I found myself obnoxiously awake at 3:15 a.m. So I did the logical thing: I got up, made tea, and decided to catch up on Twitter.
And this is what I beheld:
THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT I MISS WHILE AT SCHOOL. Also, Target is downsizing their selection of packaged foods. ( Although that seems like the less significant story, I thought it was more unexpected than Carson announcing his candidacy).
For those who don’t know, Dr. Carson is the head of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins. I first discovered him about a year ago, when I read Gifted Hands, his autobiography. (I particularly enjoyed his account of his freshman general chemistry final, which was as relateable as it was chilling). I found his book to be both candid and refreshing, and I immediately read One Nation next. His political views– particularly his opinion on healthcare– intrigued me, and I began to wonder if he would end up throwing his proverbial hat into the political three ring circus.
I admittedly have yet to do a substantial amount of research on the other candidates. However, Carson appears to be a hardworking individual who cares for the average American… And that’s more than what can be said for the majority of politicians.
It will be an interesting primary indeed.
