I am now the holder of an official position on the Bush/Cheney campaign! I accepted the position this afternoon, after much prayer, thought and deliberation…and though I am still apprehensive about some aspects, I know that this will be an experience I will never forget…and I am up to the challenge! I am still so honored to be asked to take on this position. I am now a “coordinator.” SWEET!
Today was alright…I found out a kinda disappointing fact today in my Medieval Europe class…we have been talking about the Roman Empire, and that inspired me to watch “Gladiator” last weekend. After watching the movie, which is fairly accurate historically as far as the culture of the times, and the events that occured after Marcus Aurelius’ death (isn’t that a marvelous name? Maybe I will keep that in mind for a son…LOL…JK!). I asked my prof today, though, how Marcus Aurelius died…because in the movie, his son, Commodus, kills him because Marcus was not going to name his son his successor…and that is fascinating to me…so I asked–and it is not the story that is regarded as true by most historians. Most say that he died of pnuemonia or something like that while he was up in the Germanic country fighting wars for many years…so, while that isn’t nearly as captivating as a son killing his father so that he can be in power, that is most likely the truth, so I will accept it. And morally it is a more preferrable situation, as well.
I am in the middle of writing my autobiography, for a class, and it is fairly tough–because we have to write in the third person. It is only tough because I am having to step back and look at my life in a completely different way…I am writing this paper with a political theme, beginning with a scene from the future, when I am inaugurated as Vice-President, with Zachary Ritter as President, in 2028…I am enjoying the assignment, for the most part, as it is fun to look back and see just how political my life has been from the time I was three years old…good times.
Alright, I suppose I should get to bed. Not much else happened today–except that I was unable to watch the State of the Union because I was at work. I did listen to part on the radio, and I have the entire transcript…but it just isn’t the same. Watching these important speeches is just as exciting as the Daytona 500 or the Superbowl to me…:) Yeah, I’m a nerd! 🙂 Have a blessed day!
