Okay, so tomorrow I expected to be in class all day, but Obama will be in Grant Park. Right next to my school. So Columbia did the natural thing and canceled all classes after 3 p.m. Which means I get to loiter outside the park (I hope). Couldn't get tickets, and couldn't donate any money to win any. Ah well. I feel lucky to be so close to what is sure to be an historic event. Really exciting! Especially since nothing like this ever happens to me.
