Obama's Inauguration

If you don't know about it, then you've pretty much been living under a rock for the last, oh, 2 months or so. Well, president-elect Barack Obama will officially become president of the United States of America on January 20, 2009, or this Tuesday. Now, in a world where we've been living under the Bush era for the past 8 years, Obama seems like the light at the end of the tunnel, the answer to all of America's problems. On top of that, he's the first ever black president of the U.S.

Now surely with such an important part of U.S history occurring, you'd assume I'm be excited as hell for this moment. Well, you're very much wrong.

I can't completely say why, but I could really care less about the inauguration. Maybe it's because the world is in such a bad state right now, that I realize that, even if Obama changes things for the better, it will still be a long while before things can go back to normal. Or maybe it's because I have way more important stuff going on in my life to care who's running the country. I don't know. All I know is that I'll be in school on that day, and that I'll be in shop anyways, so there's a chance I might not even see it. So, it'll be just another Tuesday for me. Now, before you start with the "Oh, it's just because you're a republican" stuff, you couldn't be farther from the truth. I didn't want McCain to win, but I can't completely say that I wanted Obama to win either. To be completely honest, I didn't like anyone in this year's election. I believe also that half the excitement over Obama becoming president is, not just because he's the first black president, but also because he's the first one to come after Bush, and that he's supposed to "save this country from the evil that is George W.". Well, what happens if Obama doesn't change things? What happens if Obama makes things worse? I really can't answer anything because I can't predict the future.

All I know is that on January 20th, I'll wake up, go to school, come home, and spend the day like any other Tuesday, listening to music and watching TV, and if I feel like it, I'll flip on CNN to see what's up with the inauguration. Again, these are just my views, so don't start an argument over them.
