So I bought these socks a long time ago in Seoul and I'm now finally getting around to sending them to the President. I'm also taking the opportunity to write him a letter!
I hope this letter finds you and your family in good health and spirits.
My primary purpose is not to correspond with you necessarily but to send along these fabulous socks I found while on my way to a bar in Seoul, South Korea. It is one thing to have buttons, shirts, bumper stickers, yard signs, mugs, aprons, baseball caps, water bottles, tote bags and magnets (all of which, by the way, are grossly overpriced) but it is a whole other ballgame when you have socks featuring your own face, socks that you can be reasonably sure almost no one else has. Socks that you can campaign in.
In exchange for enclosed socks I would appreciate it if you eliminated my student debt. I am a graduate student studying international relations at North Carolina State University; so hypothetically one day in the future I would be working for our country (unless, that is, I am buried by my debt). Is it not the most frustrating thing to work so hard for years to get a job and come out already owing more than what the average student’s annual starting salary is? I think so.
Also, I wanted to donate $5 on your website but there is a minimal limit of $30. I was going to enclose a fiver but I need that for candy bars from the vending machine at school. But it is the thought that counts, right?
Always your voter,
School is good, if not stressful. My brother made a joke that in graduate school you'll always be behind on reading. It is completely true. I have so much reading to do for tomorrow that I haven't finished because I was freaking out over my first paper, which is the dumbest smallest potatoes type of paper ever, but still.
Cats are good. My birthday was last week and I spread out celebrations over a few days. My sister made a cookie cake, like a literal cake made from cookies and icing. It's huge and delicious. Everything is pretty good right now.
