Will I remember that during Obama's inauguration I was grocery shopping, obsessing over the price of milk?

I might remember that in January 2009 I had just moved to a new city, and was just starting my master's. Maybe I'll think of it as some sort of new beginning or at least new direction in my life. I guess that depends on what happens next.

I think it depends on what happens next for America, too, though I can't help but see this as pretty amazing and positive. Even if I'm skeptical about all the crying, and even if I forgot about the inauguration until the evening and watched it on youtube out of some sense of duty.
