Election Hangover

There is something disgusting on my computer screen and I’m not entirely sure what it is.

My spirit feels that way– covered in gross, frustration, sadness. It’s been a week, friends. This election has worn me out mentally. I’m back to popping Dt. Dr. Peppers and buying a stuffed baby Yoda to comfort me.

I’m a single lady- there is no one to call to come over to snuggle me for a solid hour. So hugging a cute little Yoda plushie is the next best thing.

There are worse ways to self soothe.

I don’t think I need to explain the election stress. On top of the ongoing pandemic. And all of the hateful posts plastered everywhere. It hurts my heart.

I am exhausted. Disheartened at how close the election was. And I’m a straight white woman. I can’t begin to imagine how the black and POC communities feel. I’ll never know.

I hope this is the beginning of change. Real change. And I’m not even talking about Biden. I am talking about us- a new president doesn’t mean America’s issues will be wiped away.

Like the year rolling over to 2021 will somehow make Corona magically disappear.

I mean, it would be great if that’s how things work.

But they don’t.

In the meantime, I hope all of you are getting some rest, taking time for self care, and educating/looking out/loving one another.

Let’s do better.

More posts to come.

I’m not sure how to summarize myself properly (I struggle with simply being human). But let’s give it a try! Spiritual witchy hippie who dreams of three day weekends and human rights for all. Lunch lady to the neighborhood birbs (white breasted nut hatches are the best!). Adore my jumping spiders. Oh, there are also 50 or so plants we share our home with. And some rogue lady bugs. It’s always interesting to see where they show up. Like on toilet paper. This is where I add a heavy dash of queer, neurodivergency, and vegetarianism. Am big on hugs- I give them most generously.
