i volunteered in a door-to-door get-out-the-vote campaign in newport news, virginia, the weekend before election day. i knocked on doors and reminded people to vote and got more comfortable talking to strangers. i also ate lots of granola bars.
we sang some songs at the family weekend a cappella showcase too:

looking forward now. two semesters left. too much left to do. here's to 2017.
