FeelingI voted this morning. My dad told me it was my civic duty, my charge as an American. It was strange to hear him say that -- my family is about as apolitical as a family can be. Or more accurately, underneath our skins, we may be political, but we never speak of it.
My alarm went off at 7:10am, but I woke up a bit earlier. I got ready -- showered even (yes, gasp!) -- and walked with my roommate to the Mahood Adult Educational Center (or something like that) and waited only 20 minutes. Luckily my roommate was there to talk to. Voting was easy -- and then the best part of the day: A STICKER. (Realize that I've only been awake 2 and a bit hours.)
My mother called right after I voted, to make sure I voted.
The excitement and tension has electrified everything around me. My tinted glasses are wonderful. I am wearing Red, White, and Blue, and I have a feeling that Kerry will win.
