I’m Tired and Worn Out

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.

  1. The problem is that most of the people who have the motivation and ability to survive the political system are the kind of person you don’t want to see in power.

    Sorry that you’re feeling run down but I do understand. I’m also hoping that things will pick up in the New Year – I haven’t done too well with my 2016 resolutions. Hope some chill time does you good!

    1. Yeah that’s a good point. We create the system and then we are surprised when men and women sink into it. Thanks so much. I think the chill time and a new year is just what I need and I have a feeling Rogue One and Christmas will be energizing for me just like Moana was. It hasnt all been bad of course because of awesome friends like you

  2. I’m tired of hearing about his theatrics, too. All CNN reported this year was politics and shootings and even after the election we can’t get much of any other news. I wish we could just get a break until he becomes President.
