Obama, our 44th president!

Sooo sorry I haven't been able to post. School is just so busy and any free time I have I devote to helping out at the volunteer ambulance corps, my internship at the local justice court, and studying.

Not to mention that my new years resolution was to apply myself more in school...and inevitably blogging/ the internet in general has been clued out of my life for the past month.


Anyway, with a huge moment in history just taking place a couple of days ago I had to take out 10 minutes of my life to make this post about inauguration day.

On January 20th, several tv's were set up throughout my school. One in the main lobby, one in the library and several in the gymnasium. Right after 6th period I sprinted downstairs to the library in order to get a seat to watch the inauguration starting promptly at 11:58 am. I saved my two friends a seat but the library quickly filled up and they later texted me telling me that the librarians weren't letting anyone else in because it was too packed. I looked around. In about 4 minutes my library had reached maximum occupancy. Wow, something amazing was truly about to happen.

The emotion was palpable as we all sat surrounded by bibliographies and atlases. We saw Joe Biden get sworn in, we clapped, smiles on our faces. Then it was time for Obama to become our nation's president. We all giggled a little when the little misunderstanding in the oath took place. But it was quickly brushed off.

I think the most amazing part was when we all heard "Congratulations, Mr. President." I felt like crying, I was so happy. Nothing could get me down that day. This new era we have entered is just so exciting. I can't wait to see all the amazing things he'll do for our nation. And I am so, so proud to be an American.

SPANISH: He estado super liada con la escuela, y cualquier tiempo libre que tengo lo devoto a ayudar en los paramedicos, ejercer mi puesto de interna ayudando en la corte judicial aprendiendo terminos legales y etc. Y tambien tengo que decir que mi resolucion para el
año nuevo es dedicarme aun mas en la escuela. Y quieras o no, eso me saca el tiempo para el blogging y el internet en general. El dia de la inauguracion de nuestro nuevo presidente Obama fue muy emocionante. En mi escuela pusieron varios televisores en distintos sitios. Uno en la entrada principal de la escuela. Otra en la biblioteca, y varias en el gimnasio. En cuanto termino mi clase a las 11:55 corri hacia la biblioteca para cojer un asiento y guardar dos para mis amigas. Luego me mandaron un SMS que no les dejaban entrar en la biblioteca porque estaba demasiado lleno. A las 11:58 empezo la magia. Todos aplaudiamos y mirabamos con expectacion como pasaba todo. El momento mas magico sin duda fue cuando oficialmente Obama era presidente y dijeron, "Congratultions, Mr. President" Todos aplaudimos con una intensidad incalculable y me dieron ganas de llorar con toda la emocion. En ese momento estaba tan orgullosa de ser Americana. Es tan emocionante entrar en esta nueva era del cambio con nuestro nuevo Presidente.

FRENCH: Je suis desolee pour mon absence dans le monde de blogging. Je suis tres occupee avec l'ecole et autre choses. J'ai seulement dit qui je suis vraiment heureuse avec Obama comme notre noveau president!

Tell me, girl, do you know about Planned Parenthood and how they slaughter countless infants which Obama's a BIG part of precisely because PP funded his campaign? Better set your sights on the vertical, girl, and not on the whorizontal. Meet me in Heaven, babe, where I'll kiss your adorable feet. God bless you.
