Dark days

I've only mentioned the election in passing, first because this blog is almost entirely a place for me to post reviews and second because just thinking about the final results makes me feel panicky, angry, and sick. I feel like the US failed a very basic decency test.

I've been trying to figure out what to do from here on out. I made room in my budget for a few monthly donations (the ACLU is one), and I'm working on my phone anxiety for phone calls to my reps. It feels like nothing I could possibly do would be enough, but I'm trying not to let that weigh me down to the point where I don't do anything. I wish I didn't feel like I was surrounded by potential landmines – I know that there are likely a lot of people in my daily life who don't share my horror and who maybe even think that our new president will do great things.

And that's basically it. I don't really know what else to say. The next post will be something Yuri on Ice related, because I'm clinging to that show like it's an emotional lifesaver.

  1. Yay! Hubby and I have just watched the first few episodes of Yuri on Ice. I'm interested to know what you think!

    (As for the dark feelings -- I'm totally with you there. Of course it's different living overseas compared to where you live, but America affects the entire world. I don't know what to say either, but hang in there!)

    1. Yeah, the "America affects the entire world" thing is something else I worry about. :(

  2. Duh, sorry, just realized that you already posted. So, I'll just say yay again! (We're enjoying it, too.)

    1. It's such a good show. I'm glad that Funimation's been doing a dub for it, since that's a pretty clear indicator it's going to get a DVD release here. I really want to own it.
