I can't believe it. My first election and I voted in a black president. This is so amazing!

I was sitting in the lounge with Molly, Makayla, and Deirdre, texting back and forth with Sean and Natalie.

Stephen Colbert says, "For the first time ever, a Hawaiian has been elected President."

We look at each other and say, "...no way..." and then rush to the window because there are screams ERUPTING from the quad. We fly out onto the balcony and there are people streaking, joints being lit, sparklers and fireworks being set off. I call my parents and Sean and scream incoherently at them.

We go outside and it's fucking INSANE. Everyone is hugging and screaming. The crowd starts chanting "USA" and sang in unison the National Anthem. I honestly never thought I'd see the day Hampshire College would be praising the country with honest emotion and absolutely no sarcastic undertones.

I made my way over to Merrill and celebrated with Katy, Mallory, and Izze. I then ended up at a spontaneous dance party out in front of the library. Pub Safety completely ignored all the lit joints, and the open 40s and champagne bottles and told us all to have a fun night. I ended up with Sam and her modmates in Prescott where we danced more with people out on the fire escapes.

Here I am. 1:27AM and fucking Barack Obama is my President. I have never been able to honestly say this until now, but I am so proud of our country.
