Election Day is different for all of us. For someone of us, it's like Christmas morning. For others, it's the emotional equivalent of getting your taxes done. I myself go through a wide range of feelings, perfectly summed up by these GIFs that are me on Election Day — and, honestly, I'm willing to bet that I'm not alone here. I'm always teetering somewhere between the points of delirious excitement and weeping into a ball of used tissues. It's an important day that will have a profound and permanent impact on the future of our country and everyone living in it (and even those not living in it). It's understandable if we're all emotional hot messes right now.
And I think it goes without saying that this year is even more monumental — one that'll definitely go down in the history books under the title, "WTF Just Happened?" It's not that other presidential elections don't measure up to this one; they were all special in their own rights, too. But with potentially our first woman president on the ballot, along with that other guy, I think we're all waiting on the edge of our seats for this to finally end and determine the new leader of our country.
In the meantime, if you need me, I'll be pacing the kitchen, chewing on my cuticles and probably looking like one of these GIFs:
Me When I First Wake Up In The Morning
It's Election Day. Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up.
Me Right After
This is typically me after I remember that there are still people who like Trump. (I still love you guys.)
Me After I Check Facebook
I can't wait for this to be over so I can stop unfollowing all of my friends.
Me Preparing My Coffee
Oh. Um... *ahem* I said coffee.
Me Preparing My Coffee
There we go.
Me At Work All Day
The suspense is unbearable.
Me When Someone Says That Our Opinions Don't Really Matter
I'll just leave this right here.
Me Waiting In Line To Vote
Could this move any slower?
Me At The Voting Booth
Can't. Hold. It. In. Anymore.
Me When Someone Claims They Don't Care About Who Wins
Where can I vomit?
Me Watching The News For Constant Updates
Nobody talk. Nobody move. Nobody breathe. Silence, everyone.
Me When Someone Can't Spell A Candidate's Name Correctly
If you're going to pick a Facebook fight with someone, at least get this one detail right.
Me When It's Finally Over
Or Possibly This
Or Maybe This
We'll find out soon enough. Stay tuned.
