Live from TGH: Presidential Elections

9:30 pm: ┬áNovember 6, 2012 is a date that will go down in history as one of the closest elections yet. I’m surrounded by Mawrters in Thomas Great Hall where, 4 years ago, the Presidential Election was once again the buzz of the nation since it was the election of our nation’s first African American President. Throughout the night I will be updating my blog since this is a night I will remember, but I’m sure what I will remember it for just yet.

9:41 pm: The emotion in the room is a combination of nerves and excitement. The close vote with the swing states is enough to give this mawrter a few ulcers. The mumble of conversations floating through the hall sort of calms me down, but it is also a reminder of the importance of this election. After starting this update I’m afraid to really say anything with the chance of jinxing the polls. I need to find an offering for Athena!!

9:42pm: OBAMA WINS PENNSYLVANIA!!! Way to go Mawrters, a well-deserved Anass for the President.

9:51pm: Technical difficulties …really!?

10:34 pm: I am so proud California!! Now let’s hope the propositions go through too.

10:56 pm: Such a close election. The air in the great hall is at a low mumble.

11:27 pm: BREAKING NEWS: CNN projects Obama wins the re-election!!! The anass rings through the air.

11:32 pm: Despite the PROJECTED win and celebration Ohio’s final votes have yet to be counted. The room once filled with excitement and cheer has now quieted. Everyone is so pensive.

12:20 am: Officially kicked out of TGH. Moving to Rhoads, but ultimately … Congratulations President Obama. Now back to the real world. Time for a celebratory cupcake.
