Our government system was crafted so that nobody would have too much power, and so far we've had presidents great and not so great in our history. Having a bad one for four years is not too much in the grand scheme of things.

I'm trying to be optimistic. If it hurts you that Trump is president, which it should, go distract yourself. Play with your pet. Talk to somebody. Snuggle a stuffed animal or eat an entire pint of ice cream or play video games for the whole day if that's what you have to do.

Be safe.
this is what my mom keeps saying ^
she kinda wants to live in a dreamworld where trump won't be able to do anything and it'll all work out fine.
but some of the things he wants to do will get through. he'll still be 'the face of america' and talk to the other foreign leaders and that's terrifying.
maybe they'll realize he's an idiot and in four years, we'll get someone better. maybe they won't hold it against us. but somehow we did vote him in, and so on the other hand, they might think we're all idiots and he's the best we had to offer up.
ugh i almost barfed typing that sentence.
anyway
i'm going to do homework and attempt to forget this all happened.

@panda: land bridges are cool. i like chicago. why not.

So at school we had a day off and we came together to decide what the fuck to do about Trump, since most of us can't vote and we already spent all of yesterday canvassing for Hillary and so many people here are so scared and sad for their future. And we decided to basically just protest? And on our trip this year (Chicago) we get to meet with officials and everyone's already planning who to speak with and what to speak about and how to get our voices heard. And I want to believe that it's all going to work out but it might not and if Obamacare is destroyed then wtf of my family going to do??? Not get sick?? Not get hurt because we can't fuckjng afford it? Increased taxes on the middle class and lower class terrifies me. This school is my safe place and I need to be able to stay here but if taxes on the middle/lower class increase I won't be able to even though I already have massive amounts of financial aid. I want to stay in this school because the other option is a violent drug haven and I'm scared and I just want to get through this
