New President = Drinking on a Tuesday

Yay for America! Finally a new President. I remember when Bush was first elected and we were all watching the results on the big TV in the basement of my sorority. I hadn't voted (even though I was 18) and another one of my "sisters" led our school's Young Democrats group. She was sobbing and screaming about how Bush was going to take away our birth control. That little exaggeration definitely had me wishing I'd voted...

Even though we still have our birth control, we had a lot of other important things taken away from us. Mainly our confidence in and respect for our country's leadership. I had a lot of friends and family in DC and my favorote stat from today was that there were over one and a half million people gathered to watch Obama speak and that there had not been ONE arrest. If that doesn't give you hope for the future peace of our nation, I don't know what will.

So, to celebrate this historic day I'm forcing one of my friends with a "flexible" job to hot the town with me. Now I just need to find bars with Obama-themed drinks so I can literally drink in his awesomeness. Too much? Nahhhhh....

Don't tell anybody else this, because I'm apolitical and don't like talking about politics, but I celebrated this day too. (*whispers 'woo hoo'*)

Wasn't it such an exciting day?!

Also, I wanted to answer your questions about eHarmony and Match, but I couldn't find your email address anywhere...

I think there are pros and cons to each site. On eHarm the guys seem to be more family oriented (but maybe that's just the guys they are matching me with) which I like. It seems like they want a relationship instead of just a hook up like I was finding on Match. But I kinda liked Match better because you could narrow down your location preference more. On eHarm it only goes down to within 30miles.

But I guess in the long run I like eHarm better. The guys seem to be a better quality, it just takes longer to find them.

Hope this helped! Let me know if you have any more questions! :)
