‘Wise Up’ Portrays the Realness of Election Fatigue

South Asian-Americans

by Azra Siddiqi 

As we all know, the election is only a few days away (finally!) and we are all suffering from election fatigue. With the overload of information you see on social media, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. Not only that, there are those people who just love to be annoying on social media. We felt the best way to deal with these annoying people was to learn to be annoying just like them.

Here are our thoughts on how to do so:

• Post every article on social media without reading it or looking at its source.
• Make sure to show off what you know regardless if it is relevant or accurate.
• Make sure you constantly complain and blame all your problems on the government.
• Make sure you voice your opinion but only if you’re contradicting the other person.
