The Census: Go Ahead and “Get Er Done”

I will admit I was not sitting by my mailbox giddily waiting for my Census form to arrive. When it finally arrived, it took a couple of weeks before I actually sat down to complete it. My bad :-(. Once I finally focused on completing the task, I was embarrassed by my negligence because I realized:

  • I could hop online to complete the Census, and
  • it took me 10 minutes or less to complete

Since the Census is something we only have to worry about every ten years, there is really no excuse for not taking 10 minutes to “get er done”. More importantly, the CENSUS IS MANDATORY. I don’t know about you, but I have no extra cash lying around for fines because I was too lazy to answer seven questions. “Get Er Done”.

If you happen to be one of those people that likes to waste your money on fines then consider this.

Why the Census is so important:

  • Your response helps to direct billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services.
  • Results are used to determine the number of seats each state has in Congress and your political representation at all levels of government.

Perfectly Imperfect but VERY PROUD WOMAN, MOM, LAWYER, and AUTHOR, but most importantly...LIFE LOVER! I laugh loud, I work hard, I play hard, I am adventurous, I am curious, I am driven, I have moments of deep insecurity, I am loving, I am vulnerable, I am explosive (not one of my finer qualities), I dance around my house alone, I am an awful perfectionist which makes my insecurity worse, I sing out loud in my car without any concern for whose watching, I have trust issues, I do not live through my children, I no longer try to force my children into the mold that I created so that I could feel validated as a mother, I am a risk-taker, I am guarded in my personal life, I am kind, I am grateful. I am so excited about the rest of my life!

  1. Hey Councilor….. Yes, the on-line census was the bomb….. BUT you still needed the MAILED CENSUS so you can get the code off of the form so you can do it on line…..
