Instead of creative writing, I am going to write about election day!
We helped volunteer with my mom and dad's friend Laura. We were putting voting reminders on doors of people that supported Obama. We had to pick up instructions so we all went inside Laura's house and were greeted by friendly barking. There was a cute half-Yorkie and half-poodle puppy. It was really cute! It let me pet it and give it a tummy rub, and when I tried to pet it again it ran all over the place! Laura said it thought I was playing tag. My mom said she's never seen a dog play tag before! It was really funny. After we did that we went to the voting places and welcomed people going in and thanked people coming out. Finally, we got to see who was elected!
We went to our friends', the Gooden's, house! We watched the election there and some of our other friends, the Brights and the Salefskis, joined us. We played while we waited to see who the winner was! Almost everybody wanted Obama except the father of the Goodens. Also, while we were waiting, my friend Sarah and I went down to see her grandma's kittens. When my mom said "He won!" I didn't know who but then Sarah asked, "Obama won!?" My mom said yes! Then we watched the speeches and they were really good! It is really exciting to have the first black president! I was really happy! Then we went home. It was a really fun day.

I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
