Well, today I do. A whole lot.
After I studied abroad in Ireland, I think I lost a little of my appreciation for my country when I saw how amazing the rest of the world is (sorry, USA).
But now I'm back and loving it more than ever (well, sort of).
I was so proud to vote this morning (Woo Obama) and was practically giddy with excitement all day, wishing tonight would come faster. I can't wait to see how the night pans out...especially since Obama's big rally is happening right here in Chicago. The city has been buzzing all day and it's absolutely contagious.
So now that the night is finally here, I'm off to my friend's apartment to drink some tasty drinks and watch the night unfold. I never thought I would get this excited about politics, but I am...and it feels good.
So break out the patriotic tunes, American flags and the bubbly. Happy election night, everyone!
