Australia now has its first female Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. Despite my disagreements with a great deal of her politics, I can't help but be proud of her. I also feel a little sorry for Rudd, especially when he got teary during his final address.
In years to come, people will say "Where were you on the 24th of June, 2010?"
Well, I have had a grand total of 3 hours sleep. I woke up early and watched Australia's fantastic performance in the football, all the while wondering what would happen 2km west at 9am. I found out about the result of the meeting while cleaning mould from the fridge in our new office at work. Ew. I was home in time to see the press conferences.
Today is the day my parents get their new house today, too! Such an exciting day.
I'm proud to be an Australian woman.
