State of the Union

STATE OF UNION

President Obama, seen here at the 2013 State of the Union.

Days after the Golden Globes (which filled me with so much joy I just can’t express it), a different city is buzzing for very different reasons: Washington, DC and the State of the Union.

Call me a nerd but I’ve always enjoyed watching it, during college we would have watch parties with pizza and Cokes–it was like political junkie Christmas. Well, that’s probably Election Day. Political junkie New Year’s then. 🙂

In honor of tonight’s speech, here’s 5 things I’m grateful to President Obama for. #thanksObama

  1. Low gas prices/better economy
  2. Extending healthcare for young adults
  3. Student loan reform
  4. Capturing Osama bin Laden
  5. His empathy for marginalized groups/issues
