This was one of the most unique experiences I’d ever been to. Karim won tickets to President Obama’s Town Hall in LA, and he asked me to be his “plus 1.” Fantastic! It was an amazing and surreal day. We waited a little over two hours outside Miguel Contreras Learning Complex’s gym. We made new acquaintances in the line: a mother-daughter duo, a woman worked in the Mayor’s office in education reform, and a college girl whose dad paid $$$ to get a ticket for her. I took as many photos and Twittered as much as I could. I even took notes. Yes yes, I’m a nerd. I’ve heard that before. Here are a few photos:
I’ve been neglecting this blog. I’m not sure if it will stay here. I’m a little pressed for time, so I haven’t had a chance to revamp this website. (This is ironic. Trust me.)
While it might not be as sexy, I think I’ll make this into my Twitterfeed. Follow me at www.twitter.com/chrisin140.
I might also share my RSS reader on this site, so that you can see what I’m reading and I don’t have to keep posting awesome articles from the blog and news sources I read.
Tomorrow, Karim and I are going to President Obama’s Town Hall in LA! I had sent the link for the lottery, and Karim won! Never fear, I’ve got my Flipcam and digicam ready for filming. I’ll do my best to tweet while I’m there. W00t!
