Before we get into the meat of this piece I'd like to apologize. Apologize to the people I've let down, the family I've ignored and to myself for not trying harder.

Back in the day, Nickelodean was popular for its green slime. All of us from home would imagine ourselves getting slimed. Celebrities would get slimed from the Kid’s Choice Awards to Figure It Out.

Election Day is always an important day; some will feel like winners, some like losers, and some like nothing changed at all. This election, however, was quite unusual to say the least.
