Excitement, nervousness, and even fear pulsed through my veins as I woke up thinking about this experience. I glanced at my alarm clock; it seemed to glare right back at me. 6:57 it said. Although I would have loved to have slept until my 9:30 alarm, it seemed that my body had kicked into overdrive and had other plans for me. I was instantly awake; sad to say I was not instantly ready to get moving. Once I did get moving it seemed that this trip couldn’t come soon enough! I was ready to get this show on the road.
A once in the lifetime opportunity is a phrase that I have heard numerous times over the years, and now I get to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity. A million thoughts race through my mind as I contemplate on this opportunity. The Presidential Inauguration is a historical moment, and regardless of a political affiliation it will be an exciting moment. Leaving for Washington D.C. on Saturday fills me with nervousness and excitement. This feeling seems to keep me on my toes.
