2012 Election Results

It has been an interesting 24 hours, folks! And two nights ago, at around 11 our time, the results were in. Barack Obama was reelected as our president! I tried to go to bed before the results so I wouldn't go to bed with too many emotions or thoughts. But alas, I woke back up to my roommate calling me at 10:30 reminding me to do our communication homework due at midnight. And then, of course, I had to check my Facebook and Twitter and saw that our president had been reelected. What an exciting time! I hope that our country will continue to progress these next four years, and when I graduate from college, there will be a job for me.

Here are the final results:
