I didn't get to watch President Obama's speech, but I got to listen to it on the radio, and found myself both a little teary and very often nodding in agreement along with what he said. This country is in the crapper right now, and people think that he's got too many lofty goals than can possibly be reached. But what other sort of goals should you have? Should you just cross your fingers and try to the meet the status quo, or should you reach for the stars, even if you miss sometimes? Promises will be broken, and hard decisions will be made, and I know that I won't agree with everything that his administration will do, but I do know this: he inspires us to do better, to reach for more, to work together towards greatness. Lofty and many, maybe, but hope is never a bad thing. He had my vote. He had my vote for more than just being against his opponent. He had it for inspiring, and for making me proud to be who I was, proud of where I was born, proud to dig my heels in and give back and work hard to make this place great again. Times are tough, but I think we can do it. Together.

and now for the not so positive parts of my day =P )
