I know you all have been hearing abou the US election these past weeks. I guess you are as tired of it as I am. But don't worry, my friends, because finally everything's over!
I wanted to take side in this election, but found it tremendously difficult. Politicians here never talk about what they are going to do, or I've never heard them talk about it. However, they keep criticising each other's plans (even though people are not sure what their plans are!!). That's the reason why I can't express my opinion on this topic: simply because I'm not informed enough. Obama seemed to me the same as McCain, but 20 years younger and black. I didn't like any of them, as well as I didn't dislike them.
I am just afraid that he is one of those with "not a bad word nor a good deed". The problem with the candidates that promise too many good and beautiful things is that often times it just can't be possible. As I said, only time will reveal.
I like to see this as a historic moment. This is going to be the first black president of the United States (well, his half white half black, but anyway...). In 100 years kids like me will study this event. I can't but think how lucky I am to be here and live it by myself!!!
I'll try to keep more informed from now on. Everybody is thrilled that Obama won because they all say he is going to fix everything... I truly hope that my skepticism is unfounded. Something that really caught my eye is how into it teenagers are. i mean, they have strong opinions! :O I think (and hope) that they reached them by themselves, not because their parents told them that!!
Uncle Victor, thank you for writing me!! it was really nice to hear from you, really!! And dad... I'm sorry, I don't know that I would understand half of the words in that "carabanchel" slang even though I lived there and my Spanish were 100% perfect :P (however, I get the message ;D). And Mom, it's just normal not to know what to feel. I feel the same way, I don't know if this is right or wrong. Since we don't live in the country (well I do, but I didn't get anything) we can't see how they really are adn therefore our opinions will always be incomplete. Wow :P
Aaanyway, next time I write will be on Friday. I hope I'll have good news ;D (Progress Reports!!!)
I love you!
