Very Disappointed

I am very sad to call myself a resident of the United States right now. I am highly disappointed with the people of this country; the fact that in the very beginning of this election that we knew that the choices would be between Trump and Hilary should have been our wake up call. So very and deeply saddened by these people that I call my peers.

Just this morning I was shocked that a person I called a close friend could post something so hateful on Facebook. I couldn’t believe it. She said to the effect that she couldn’t believe people voted to raise minimum wage and called us all idiots because now she would need a second job to buy food. A little background on this, I went to college with this girl. She was the sweetest, nicest person I knew there. She is now a registered nurse. I unfriended her because I don’t want to see that kind of hatred on my Facebook. But people don’t realize this doesn’t truly take effect until 2020. This girl went on to say this new law was catering to people to lazy to become educated to get a real job. I can tell you right now I would gladly go back to school and finish my educate if I had the money for it. Unfortunately my parents aren’t my personal bank. I have to work for my place.

I know nothing can really happen just yet with the results of this election. I pray that either Mr. Trump makes a statement that he was just doing a publicity stunt to show how much power he is has on this country or that when he is actually in office he realizes he can’t just write things into law (he has to get them past Congress and the Supreme Court first). But I also fear that soon this country that boasts so much freedom for all will soon become something ugly and restraining. I hope that even though he speaks much like Hitler that Mr. Trump isn’t going to try to make this country something feared and horrific.

I know for the next four or however much time it is I will be wishing Bernie had won…

Runaway

It’s one of those nights that I just want to runaway from everything in my life. Work, relationship, apartment, everything.

It’s been a long day and everything was ok. Then I get my review at work and I didn’t get a raise like I was hoping. I’ve been there 4 years and I work my ass off. And just when I was starting to care about my job again. I even joined a group for employees to help better things around the store. And nothing.

Now I am home and all my boyfriend can talk about is how it’s New Year’s Eve and how we should be drinking tonight. I don’t want to drink. Especially when it’s always the cheap crap that I can afford. If I am going to drink I want something worth drinking.

I am tired of this. I am tired of everything. Maybe I’ll get lucky and I’ll get a New Year’s miracle and wake up with something great to live for. Something that makes my life good.
