I’m sitting here tonight trying not to have nightmarish flashbacks of November 2016.
It’s Midterm Election night in the United States of America and I am this guy…
My husband doesn’t get why I get so worked up about these elections. I tell him that I love and care for far too many people south of our big-ass Canadian border to NOT be invested. Their lives matter to me and under the current administration, their lives, and well-being, and for far too many, thier very basic human rights are in jeopardy.
So yeah, I’m just over here refreshing my twitter feed. Retweeting EVERY TIME A WOMAN wins her race and rejoicing in the incremental gains that are coming out of this election (Yay Florida for reinstating voting rights for ex-felons). I don’t know if this is going to be the giant Blue Wave that everyone wanted or predicted or what have you, but I can tell you that it is bloody inspiring seeing the voter turn out numbers being reported and double-tapping and giving big hearts on all your proud #iVoted posts on Instagram and Facebook all day long.
This is also me right now. And also last week as I watched The Haunting of Hill House. Only tonight I am screaming, “DO NOT FUCK THIS UP FLORIDA!” at my screen, instead of “DON’T GO IN THE DUMBWAITER LUKE!”.
(Also, I may have a bit of a Netflix-watching problem. I’ve mentioned it twice in the same amount of posts. Will report back after I finish a few more episodes…)
I’ll leave you with this, because we could all use a bit of a tension release. Bless this child.
Oh and just so you know, I truly believe that regardless of the results of this election, I think one thing is very clear, The ReVOLuTIoN has indeed started….
Just in time for me to read this…
Also, Florida and Texas better some damn recounts!
Try to get some sleep everyone.
Tomorrow we get up and we keep fighting.
For all of our friends and loved ones.
