I know that I am a little late for a post such as this, but better late than never.  I wrote a post about the inauguration of Barack Obama, but then I already had an ideal post in my inbox.  Thus, I bring you an email that my Mommy sent to her children on that historic day:

Hello people, 

I just came back from watching the Obama speech, and for the first time since I came into this country,.I feel like it is all worth it. 

Life here for immigrants is not easy. Anywhere we go, on the job, to the store, even in schools, we’re treated differently. They talk about equal opportunity, but for the first generation immigrants it is not true. Over the years your dad and I has agonized about the what ifs….the what could have been. 

And today, watching that face up there, my belief was reaffirmed….the conviction that for the four of you, things will be different. There is no limit to what you can be….and where you could be. America is open to the likes of us….You may have to work twice as hard as your white counterparts but your dreams are still attainable. 

I just want to take this time to remind you that you guys are a part of this nation so make good use of the prospects out there. Have a vision and work hard towards it.   

We’ve always talked about being all you can be. It is not true for your dad and me. But for you guys, there is no limit to what can be achieved. With life and good health, there should be no excuses!!  Make an impact in this world. To make a difference that counts, you’ll have to work hard to achieve your life’s goals. Remember, time waits for no one…so make good use of the time you have now….when you are older, things gets more complicated. Don’t wait till your old age and live with regrets. 

Remember to thank God everyday for a brand new day and use it wisely: and pray for wisdom to make the right decisions….the right choices. 

If there is one thing that takes you nowhere, it is mediocrity. Decide on what to do, and do it to the best of your God-given ability. Strive for excellence. 

We love you guys so much and want you to have the best of both worlds. 

Obama has given us HOPE…..but HOPE without WORKS is nothing! 

You can do it….it is not just a slogan. You can make it happen. You are very smart and intelligent individuals. Make exceptional use of God’s gifts to you. 

God Bless 

Love, 

Mom

This post will be photo-laden to compensate for the fact that it is text-poor.  But it is still a post!  Which means that I am another week closer to winning $10.00 from someone who is already poor. >:]  For those of you wondering why I have not blogged about my favorite part of the year yet, don’t worry! 🙂  I will.  I am just too sleepy to put in the effort which such a post would deserve.  And now, pictures:

The last few nights have been horribly restless… Thanks to a certain bedmate. >:| Ordinarily, the sleepless nights which result from sharing my bed with someone are incredibly gratifying experiences. However, this has never been the case when the bedmate in question has been Animal. To give you an idea of how talented she is at sleeping, let me relay an anecdote to you.

Many moons ago, Animal and I shared a black metal Ikea bunk bed. She used to sleep on the top. The top bunk had a series of rather high guard rails, perhaps a foot or so (something like this). One night, a terrible crash woke me up. After glancing around the room and seeing nothing unusual, I deduced that the noise had come from outside. The next morning, I got up and peeked at the top bunk to see if Animal was still asleep. She was gone. This was odd, because I usually wake up eons before her (and most other people). I went downstairs. Still no Animal. Later that morning, I returned to our room in search of a lost book. Imagine my surprise when I peered underneath the bed to find, not my book, but my sister… This girl had rolled over the guard rail… fallen on the floor… been completely unperturbed… and then rolled underneath the bed and continued to sleep…

Due to some interesting circumstances, Animal and I found ourselves as roomies again for the weekend. Just thinking about it makes me tired (You did no help either, Ju!). My door frame is still broken from her last encounter with my domain. This time she also broke my glasses and managed to toss and turn to such a degree that my sheets are now half off the bed. She also hit me in the face several times. I am pretty sure that, had we been a married couple, I could have had her arrested for assault. After all of that, she was still talking about how we should move in together (and how she should not have to pay any rent). Black. At least she is still thoughtful enough to “cuh-caw” at me. :/

Speaking of black people, I owe an apology to a really cute white guy with Pennsylvania license plates. He just happened to be next to me at a red light on Friday at the 70 & 73 intersection in Marlton. I had just had a furniture-buying misadventure, and then some PI cut me off on 73, and some other stuff. So we’re at the light and I had the windows down. Evidently, so did the dude next to me… but I did not realize that at the time. It had just been a really long day… and then the radio thing… And I freaked out and yelled (I yell really loud), “WHITE PEOPLE!!!!” out of nowhere. I saw that poor boy jump out of his skin via my peripheral vision. If you, by some odd chance, happen to be reading this, I am so sorry for needlessly scaring the cr@p out of you and generalizing your people. Well, partially sorry for the generalization anyhow. And I think you are WAY cute! Email me. ;D  Oh! And John from Target… I’ll totally be back Friday night… ;D  Or beforehand if you call me… ;D  Holler.
