A Very Strange Coincidence

Do you ever have something happen to you and wonder how the hell it worked out that way?

Let me be blunt. Tonight is not a good night. Today was a day I was looking forward to for a long time. However, due to a couple of circumstances, it's not what I wanted it to be. Originally, I was supposed to be on a plane to DC, only to be surrounded by thousands of the top Republicans in the country. You see, this weekend is the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC). It's the biggest event of the year for Republicans and Conservatives. Now, I'm limited to Twitter feeds and phone calls from 10 of my best friends here at CMU - our College Republicans Chapter.

So, let's get to the really strange part. On a night that I literally cannot get anything done because I have to think about how some of my best friends are in my favorite place in the whole world - not to mention they're with some of the people I want to meet most - my necklace that I got from a man in DC a year and a half ago broke. That's right. Out of all 500+ days that I had it, it happened to break tonight. Coincidence?

So, I have one year to fulfill my next goal in life. I'm going to earn money for CPAC and put it away. I will be going to CPAC next year. I don't care if there is no CPAC next year - I'll hold my own damn CPAC. When I first learned that I had 3 exams this week I thought that I wouldn't miss DC too much. But now that I'm sitting here while they're sitting there, my stomach doesn't feel like it will stay in my body.

Next year, I will be blogging from the Omni Hotel in Washington, DC.

Oh, I do feel bad. But your determination to make it happen for next year will serve you well.

i have an idea. take all of that stimulus money (my money) you will be getting and use that. i rather like the idea of using the democrat's stimulus money to attend a republican event.

With a broke necklace how will you ever pick up women?

I will not be getting your money. My Mother would be getting your money, and my Father would be getting your money :)
