I am really going to miss President Obama.
And at the end of my Saturday night, watching this interview is very soothing. Herman Yung said exactly what I was feeling about this video:
Barack Obama has such a soothing voice. It’s like listening to radio. Have you tried to listen to Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump talk for an extended period of time? It’s impossible. Obama on the other hand — this is a guy I can probably listen to for a long time.
I feel like the election has stretched for a long time, but at the same time, it has also felt very fast. I haven’t always shared my political views on Yow Yow! and I still don’t think that it’s very necessary to do so today. I clearly have a view, right? But Yow Yow! has never leaned very heavily on anything regarding to politics. Yow Yow! has been through one election though when I was a senior in college and even then – we were pretty quiet. With regards to politics, I’ve done the bare minimum. I registered in California because my friend pretty much did it for me. I’ve watched the debates. I participate in viewing what other people have to say on Twitter and I retweet the things that are election-related that make me laugh. There are a lot of them!
I can’t really say why I’ve never had the passion for politics the way my own friends do. I actually admire them for it because they get very riled up and they very clearly have a stance about anything and everything and they can hold their own in any conversation. It’s pretty remarkable to watch. So we’ll be watching Tuesday of course because I don’t think there’s anything more important than that, but for now, we’re just going to enjoy this last bit of President Obama.
Favorite Style Icon: Taylor Swift
T. Swift has seriously stepped her game in 2012. Yes, she’s still sticking to the neutral colored dresses – but hey! That’s okay. It works for her. Taylor Swift is really just doing all the right things when it comes to her style these days and it helps that there are a handful of fabulous designers throwing their pieces at her. It’s awesome. I, of course, am jealous.
Runner Up: Michelle Obama / Kate Middleton
It is hard to believe that the first term has already flown by. I don’t want to get too much into my political views here on Yow Yow, but I will say three words about the results: I was thrilled.
I am just glad to say that this time around I felt not only more informed, but more confident in my decisions and what exactly I was expressing my voice on.
But this post isn’t about this. This post is about the Obama ladies – Michelle, Malia and Sasha. These three women are becoming style icons. Seriously, I wish I looked that good and dressed that well at Malia’s age. I didn’t. Her outfit last night was something I absolutely needed to have in my closet. And also – I think we’ve all heard by now about how the fashion industry has publicly dismissed Ann Romney and pretty much only supported Michelle Obama during the campaigning season.
These two girls have grown up so much. I can’t wait to see how their style continues to evolve over the next four years and to see who will be designing Malia’s prom dress. Oh yeah. You know that’s coming.
Why did no one tell me about Molly Moon’s exclusive Baracky Road ice cream?!
Is this punishment for no longer living in Capitol Hill because I feel like it is. Tomorrow’s the last day and I am nowhere near a Molly Moon’s. A bellini will have to do.
But seriously, if you’re waiting until tomorrow to vote – then I really don’t know what to say. Four years ago when the results came out, I was the only freshman that did not finish her reading and thus was therefore forced to stay in my residence hall to read all these pages while the rest of Capitol Hill was out celebrating and tearing up the streets.
This year, I’m hoping for another win and this time, I will not be studying.
Voting is important. Have a say and expressing your voice is important. There are always some parts of the election that we feel we cannot make a difference in for fear of being too small, but there are also other issues on the ballot this year that we can impact as well.
This lil’ cat was found on the Obama campaign page. Those guys have such a great sense of humor over there…
Every now and then, I stumble across something on my newsfeed that is just too good to not share. When the debates come ’round, you can always expect the lolz.

The election is heatin’ up y’all! President Obama explains the term ‘Romnesia.” LOLOLOL is all I have to say.
