I first saw this outside my building on, appropriately, Inauguration Day. I was charmed by it, filled with the optimism and renewed pride that whoever embedded it in the earth must have felt. I immediately knew that this would be one of my first pictures.
~It’s nice to have a president who can pronounce ‘nuclear.’ I’m just saying.
~A-Rod admitted his steroid use. Is he telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth? I have my doubts. And if “honesty,” as he stated over and over again, is so important, then, uh, why wasn’t he honest until he had to be? And if “this is [his] fault,” then why is he acting like it’s Selena Roberts’s?
Unlike many my age (29), I wasn’t for Obama from the start– I voted for Hillary in the primary. But I unhesitatingly voted for him in November, and when he won, I felt as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, one I hadn’t even known was there.
As for my newly acquired weight (see my last post), I’m still filled with unease when I think about it. But whereas Monday and into yesterday it was the whole book, now it’s been reduced to a subplot.
