One way or another, history will surely be made tonight.
Let it be the good kind. Please, please let it be the good kind. #ElectionNight

There won’t be a vlogging workshop today because I stayed up too late with my jaw on the floor.
Six years ago I wrote about why I wasn’t exercising my right to vote.
At the time I felt like my vote didn’t matter and that I’d be choosing between two evils.
But I got old and I started caring and I’ll be honest, Donald Trump scares the shit out of me.
There is more ignorance and bigotry in the shadows of this country than you could ever imagine and it’s just been waiting for a voice.

So I voted.
Hillary Clinton was not my first choice, but she wasn’t my last choice…so she became my first choice.
In Washington State everything was #ImWithHer.
My Facebook feed was filled with #ImWithHer.
I thought everyone was a little OVER THE TOP with the Hillary pantsuit support and I couldn’t wait for this campaign to be over so that we could talk about something else.
And then election night happened.
I changed my mind, I want another week.
WE NEED MORE TIME!
I’m embarrassed to have this man as the leader of our country. I cannot believe this loon who picks fights with celebrities on Twitter is the representative of America. In his bid to make America great, he has insulted and threatened women, immigrants, Muslims, LGBTQ, all minorities and he has revealed a side of our country that I find repulsive. But it appears a majority of this country believes Trump is the best choice. I hope he proves them right.
The only bit of peace I find right now is in knowing our new president is constricted by our constitution…which is a hell of a way to begin the next four years.
Our daughters see this. They’re sad. Then they’ll be angry. Then they’ll be strong. Then they’ll fight back. Then one will become president.
