- I actually wanted to watch the inauguration today. I haven't wanted to watch a political event for as long as I can remember.
- I find myself actually caring about my country again. Not to rant too much, but I've felt pretty out of touch with the direction that the ol' USofA has been going the past 8 years.
- Oddly enough, I care about our new president and his family as people. Tonight I read that the Obamas attended 10 (ten!) inaugural balls. My first thought was, "Oh, the poor things! I hope they get enough rest!" What's up with that? And how cute are their little girls!
Maybe it's my age, and I'm sure the changing political climate has something to do with it, but I'm actually excited about politics for once. Maybe I'll be disappointed again, or just maybe we'll be able to make some changes this time around. We'll see...
