The other night, I woke up about 3 a.m. I’m not even sure what woke me up. But the next thing I know, I’m lying there in the dark thinking about a law review paper on nullification I’d read the day before.
Of course, the only thing actually getting nullified at 3 a.m. was my beauty-rest.
The next day, I wrote an article about that law review paper. So, I guess it wasn’t a complete waste. (You can read it HERE.)
Now, it’s not often that I wake up in the middle of the night thinking about nullification, but it happens. And that reveals just how consuming this job can be. I’m technically “part-time” here at the TAC. But a lot of times it can feel like a 24-7 job. It gets pretty consuming.
This month, I celebrated my seventh anniversary with the Tenth Amendment Center. I’m not going to lie. Sometimes I get tired.
That’s why I play hockey. When I’m out on the ice, I can single-mindedly focus on one thing – stopping the puck. It’s the one place that I never think about nullification, the Constitution or what some dumb politician is doing. It’s very therapeutic. I need that break.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not complaining. I chose this work. I love it. It is definitely a labor of love. But it isn’t always easy.
That’s why your support means so much to me. It reminds me that we’re not alone. That a lot of people care. And that our work makes a difference.
So, thank you for being part of what we do here at TAC!
