man it’s been lacking in the comments latley, guys. geez. he he he—but thanks to mr. site meter, i know you’re all still out there. :)
first of all, i have to say that i’m coming to you live from my black death quarantine. that’s right. i’ve been battling this ebola-like virus since last thursday and it’s finally taken me doooown. i’ve missed so many meetings and classes because of this diseasedness taking over my life, so i decided to stay home from work today and sleep. all day. i think it’s working. so hopefully i’ll be back out and about again soon. ugh.
secondly, i am really excited about the presidential outcome. i think barak will do a great job…and the rest of the country so evidently thought so, too. i’ve seen tons of facebook status changes and tweets today of people freaking out. ummm helluer…checks and balances people. the fact of the matter is, though, that if mccain had won, half the country would be terrified….and when obama won, half the country became terrified. i don’t know. that doesn’t seem so healthy. maybe i will just move to france. WHY CAN’T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?? love you! :D
voting has never seemed so important to me than it was this year. maybe because the first two elections i was able to vote in weren’t as interesting, but i think it has more to do with my experiences in kosovo. i was there the spring and winter before they declared independence from serbia, and they were so excited to take action. to vote. to have a voice in what was happening after a period of warfare that was so absolutely devastating. last new years, people were SO incredibly joyful at the upcoming declaration. i don’t see many americans that are as proud to be american, as much as my kosovar friends are loyal and proud to be albaian. perhaps it is a case of not appreciating what you have until it is taken away from you.
sort of like the black death. will i appreciate wellness when i’m not sick anymore? or will i forget about it and then get all mad when i get another sore throat? ugh.
ok i’m out. i’m getting really cranky. :) and typing a lot of facial expressions out of combinations of punctuations and letters. weird. (this is what the black death does to you.)
peace be with you all and thanks for reading.
