As I got there I was a bit discouraged, seeing as I was well back into the line and they only had 3,000 tickets to give out. Fortunately, around 9:30 a classmate of mine from school was walking around selling extra red ticket stubs that would be exchanged for tickets. He recognized me and let me have one and move way up in the line and stand with him and some others. It was surreal! After waiting in the cold for a good 5 hours, I got inside and my hands were so cold that I could barely sign my ticket. That's right. My ticket. I'm seeing the president tomorrow instead of zoning out in AP Stats class! :) anyways, had to share, along with some pictures.
I'll update tomorrow and hopefully have some pictures as well.
