What a difference a year makes...

It's Thanksgiving.
This is my first one away from my family and at first I was kind of sad,but then you know I got over it. It's been lovely spending it with one of my closest friends. Now I am full and angry watching UT being regular against AM but broadcasters still being on McCoy's...business.
Last year at this time I was in Omaha. With my family.
In two days I would be told by someone I was in a relationship that we were through and would spend Saturday night crying.
Then Sunday morning we were back together.
Fastforward to this year and I'm awed at what a difference a year makes.
I miss that person and almost wanted to send an annoying "Happy Thanksgiving" text,but decided against it.

I think a big par tof growing up is accepting the everchanging contexts of one's life and living in those.

I hate it sometimes.
That and Texas.

Only in America...

I'm quite pleased with the results of this election. I won't get into all the emotions and thoughts I'm feeling.
No,racism is not dead,but perhaps it's on life support? I'm happy.
I'm thankful that I've seen the day where we have a) an intelligent president again b) and yes an African-American president.
I have NEVER been prouder to be an Americaine. Always proud, but never prouder.
All these dumbasses talking about leaving the country, where are you going?
But seriously.
Where are they going?
They're not going to Europe, maybe to Russia.
They're probably not going to Asia, sure as hell not going to Africa.
Where are they going?
They're staying in these here 50 and getting ready to drink a HUGE glass of Change.
Or shut the hell up...
