1. Okay, he speaks at 7 p.m. Is it too early to get here at 3 p.m.?

2. Holy crap, this is a long line. 



3. Is Bernie in his hotel room right now giving himself a pep-talk in the mirror?

5. Oh good, free stickers.

7. This weather is really nice for February. 


8. I’m definitely going to get sunburned.

10. A giant cloud of weed smoke just came out of nowhere.

11. I wish I had a cool Bernie t-shirt .

12. Security? Everyone calm down. Why is this Secret Service guy going through my tampons?

13. Cool, this guy’s here…? 


14. Is Bernie going to comb his hair today?

15. I should’ve brought chalk. 


16. This pre-speech playlist is on point. *Dances to “Timber.”*

17. Reggae revolution music: he knows exactly what we want.

18. I should’ve brought a sign. 


19. It’s 7:05 p.m. We are the 99 percent waiting for Bernie to come out. Let’s protest.


20. Is that him? Nah, that’s just an old guy looking for the exit.

21. Okay, here he is finally (and he was amazing, of course).
