I don't know quite how to describe how I feel right now. It's sort of like I'm balancing on the edge of a platform and one gust of wind could make me plummet or fall back to security.

When I came home at around 9:30 I was cautiously happy. When projections showed Bush surging ahead in the electoral college I was devastated. I saw the Supreme Court in my head. I saw Roe v Wade flying out of the window. I imagined gay rights regressing. Now that Gore is seen as the winner in California I'm a little less anxious, but Florida still has me worried.

God. This is killing me. Why is this election so fucking close? This country is full of imbeciles who don't care about personal liberties, that's why. Fucking ridiculous.

I am truly psyched for Hillary, though... Rock on.
