this is gonna be a bitter politics blog for at least the rest of the day. i’m still feeling paralyzed and trying to make sense of it all.
never in my worst nightmares have i expected this outcome. i’m living in my european bubble. i was reassured by the media and the people around me that this would never happen. everyone made fun of him. i didn’t meet a single person that saw him as a serious contender. no one saw him as the threat he clearly was/is.
i am scared of the global ramifications this outcome could potentially have but i recognize that i am personally not going to be affected anywhere near as much as my friends in the states.
please stay safe and take care of yourself. get off the internet and surround yourself with people and things you love if you can’t bear it right now. it’s okay to feel overwhelmed. you will make it through this. thrive out of spite. thrive and fight and make things right in 2020.
