I don't even know how to describe it, but today was one of the most thrilling days of my life.
Today I had an interview for graduate school (*squee*), and sometimes I would become so incredibly excited that no voice would come out– all that would manage to squeak out of my throat was an excited squawk.
And then, as if that were not exciting enough, I got to vote.
Ninety years ago, as a woman, I would have had to be content to know that maybe my husband and I shared an opinion, but I would have not been able to voice it.
I know this means little to some.
But the fact alone that I, as a woman, can be independent of thought and means, well…. it means the world to me.
Today is a wonderful day. I hope you all get to live a day as wonderful and pride-inducing as this one was for me.
Unrelated: tequila, lime juice and ice are also excellent.
