I'm just sad I'm not in the States to join in the festivities right now. I found out while I was at work, and I had to check the news site on my cell phone and have my teacher translate it, then I checked msnbc.com on my phone to confirm. At first I felt faint and I wanted to cry, but then I had to go to class and I don't think I've absorbed it yet. All this time I've been so nervous and clenched, and now he's won and what am I supposed to do with the empty space left?
Also, go Texas! 44% Democratic!! I was so happy when I saw the map and there were a smattering of blue pieces on the bottom of the state. Much better than when Travis was the lone blue dot in 2004. Yay!! I feel like America is finally coming to its senses, but why did it take so long?
Anyways, I was going around telling all the kids today how happy I was and they felt the same way. Then a bunch of the foreigners went out after work and toasted a little paper Obama.
