10 Things More Entertaining Than Watching The Presidential Debate

We can never get that wasted 90 minutes of our lives back.

10 Things More Entertaining Than Watching The Presidential Debate

Being educated about the election is important, and I'm pretty sure most people were actually excited to watch the debate last Monday night. The media made the debate out to be as big as the Superbowl. However, it was an extreme disappointed basically reminding everyone that we probably shouldn't vote for either of these candidates. At least that was the argument they were making on stage for 90 minutes. Since we will never get that 90 minutes of depressing time back I figured we could at least imagine the more entertaining things we could have been doing.

1. Binge watching "Law and Order"

This country does need to restore Law and Order, thankfully it's all on Netflix and can be binge-watched at any time.

2. Doing Homework

Doing homework is actually slightly less depressing than this election.

3. Reading a good book

Who knows where the country will be in a couple years, we better start studying up on the hunger games now.

4. Memorizing your contacts

It would definitely be a better use of 90 minutes, you never know what will happen.

5. Watching Kanye West doing literally anything.

Side note if you need a good laugh google Kanye West funny moments. #Kanyeforpresident2020??

6. Praying for our poor country

I'm 100% serious about this one. Say your prayers people.

7. Reading live tweets about the debate

"CNN on how to watch the debate. I'll be watching it while drinking whiskey, my arms wrapped me, rocking back n forth in the corner, scared." -@ErinFoley

"All things aside, congrats to these two olds for not peeing for 90 minutes" -@RyanStegman

"this is the longest SNL cold open I've ever seen" -@SarahHalusha

8. Watching "Dancing With The Stars", "The Voice", or any other show that got cut off early because of debate night.

The 90-second debate dance on "Dancing With the Stars" accomplished more than the actual debate.

9. Babysitting two children, kinda like Lester Holt was doing.

Not only poor man was stuck babysitting two adults, but his parents gave him the name Lester.

10. Fact checking.

No comment needed.

I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say I can't wait for Tuesday to watch the two most boring vice presidential candidates battle it out in a way that would make the "Batman v Superman" fight scene look like award winning cinema.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
