Hey guys. I was talking to my sister today and she brought up something I thought I would address. Most of you know I was not a fan of Donald Trump as a candidate and did not vote for him. Since the election I admit I have felt mostly annoyance at the whole thing. Annoyance at his behavior. Annoyance at the liberals hyperventilating and committing all kinds of theatrics (seriously an op-ed the other day in a major newspaper was all about how a woman can’t date any more because Trump won…). I know I should be more civilly minded but a side of me just wants to tell everyone to go away. Part of the problem is during the election I became very cynical of all politicians. They are all spin doctors and narcissists and I don’t trust any of them.
I think both sides are behaving very hypocritically both leaders and followers. The whole thing is just making me feel frustrated and sad. I also don’t like how I can’t say anything nice about Trump or his transition without people jumping down my throat and then people expect me to have high outrage at every last thing. I am personally saving my outrage for when he is actually president and when it really matters to me. Then you will know I mean it because I won’t have been flipping out over every last thing.
Anyway, I have spoken out from time to time on twitter but some have wondered why I haven’t done more on this blog. I just need a break. I need time to enjoy Christmas and the New Year. I feel tired and have had a bit of a tough time even motivating myself to make my weekly videos for my channel.
I feel like I need to take a vacation. I feel like I need to go to the beach and relax. I’m working on making that happen sometime and in the meantime I am enjoying some great movies (thank goodness for the cinema!). Make sure to check out my channel and movie blog for my thoughts on those films:
Can you guys relate to what I’ve been feeling? Do you feel worn out and tired? I’m sure once the beginning of the year comes along I will feel energy to be engaged like I usually am but I’m not there yet. Follow me on twitter to get a bit of that but for this blog I need to just be silly for a while.
Anyway, that’s my thoughts on that. I hope you are all doing well and having a nice holiday season. It’s funny that I wrote this because I actually had a fun morning where I went to our local art house cinema for a waffle and movie event. We ate waffles and then saw A Christmas Story. It was really fun. I prefer to focus on these kind of things and moments right now and let others debate the issues of the day. I’ll get back to those things eventually. I promise.
