This is the 4th Presidential election I've voted in, and finally my person won! It feels especially sweet because I helped volunteer with the campaign. I had never done that before.

To the people whose person didn't win, welcome to my life since I've been of voting age. Now you can be the ones to rub it in to me when the President messes up. I do think he will be a more centrist President than some people think. He's a very smart man. I wouldn't put much stock in the scare tactics and ridiculous campaign commercials. And please remember that there are other issues of Life besides abortion. Poverty. War. Genocide. Health care. I even consider the environment one. Maybe we can make some progress towards reducing deaths in those arenas. Pro-life doesn't end at birth.

And also, please remember:

Probably 3rd party. ;)

i tried, they dismissed me. it's no biggie, i still graduated...and i'm happy with the things i wrote and said. i mean...it was an ethnic study class...and the professor was from berkeley...he was a little nuts to start with. but...it happens.

although, the one time it really pissed me off, was with a critical thinking professor, she really liked me and i had a high A going into the final research paper...my topic, affirmative action...maybe i bring it on myself. anyway, her comment to to me was "no one feels this way" and i got a C...bringing me down to a B in the class. so lame!

i'm just glad i have a good sense of humor and actually like everyone...i would hate to be bitter towards these people.

Brack Obama is my president...i am not about to disrespect anything about the position or the responsibility. maybe i'm lucky having grown up in california...i generally let it all go and do what i need to do for me.
