I know many of us in the US are in shock, disbelief, and horror at the results of the presidential election. I just want to be home curled up in bed with a giant plate of cheese-covered fries to comfort me. Really wish I had the day off of work.
I stayed up far too late last night watching the results roll in, hoping that the numbers weren’t showing what we thought they were showing. I’m operating on little sleep, sitting here at work with a killer headache surrounded by happy Trump supporters. While my state didn’t go to Trump so I can’t really blame them for this mess, it’s not making me feel any better today. Of course everyone wants to talk about it but I don’t want to share that I’m the only person in the office who voted for Hillary. I feel so sad about this and need some time and space to deal. Longest morning ever.

I’m gonna open all my windows and burn some sage and try to smudge all the anxiety out of my house. I’m going to bring it back to a place of calm and sanctuary. Then I’m gonna go for a walk in nature and remember what is important. Then I’m gonna make a nice dinner for my kids and Fiance. And start making our plans for the imminent collapse of society 😉

desertgypsy : Lol! You sounded like you had it all under control until I got to that last sentence. I was like, “How can she be so damn calm?”
realtorbeenj : So jealous that you get to work from home. I don’t want to be around people at all today, let alone ones who are happy Trump won. I’m eager to watch her speech but, alas, that will have to wait until I’m home from work.

I’m at work like any other day. I’m not going to let Trump disrupt my day. We have to stay strong. We will move on from this mess.

I woke up literally not believing my husband when he said Trump won and then I rolled out of bed and went to work like I do every day.

I came into work. I have some hands on stuff to do. Once this is complete, I’m going to head home and finish things remotely. Hope everyone has a relaxing day just decompressing from the rollercoaster

At work. Horribly nauseated. Very introspective. Still in shock even though I wasn’t a Clinton supporter. I’ve realized, though, that nothing should ever be taken for granted. Nothing!
I live in a reliably red state. But, then I see states that have been blue for 40+ years that turned red. We could easily turn blue under the right circumstances.
It makes me wonder about a lot of things. How politics in this country change. How politics in the world change. How they can change back in a blink of an eye. How do you have a global economy while still protecting jobs at home? Can you? Should you? And, more importantly, if the jobs aren’t there any longer because of globalization, how do you support and empower those displaced workers?
I saw a clip from a Democrat this morning who was yelling that the coal miners don’t have jobs and they’ll never have jobs again, no matter who is president. Is that what happened? The workers who were displaced simply wanted something different?

At work, listening to public radio, and totally in shock still.

I work on a 25 person team with members in NYC and DC. 75% of the team is working from home today. I wanted to go in for a nice distraction but can’t stop crying.
Going on a roadtrip tonight to visit my college girlfriends. Hopefully that’ll snap me out of it!

Skipped class this morning to go to the gym and work through some emotions. But now I’ve got to get back to real life I guess.
Also decided to order myself a pull-up bar for at home, because misogyny and hate can’t keep this strong woman down.

I plan on staying in today, I am not working right now so I can. I don’t feel like going out and seeing any happy Trump supporters gloating.
I feel kind of bewildered. In a strange way, I am afraid that men will start grabbing women again in the workplace, sexual harrassment will worsen, more women will be called names and mistreated. I hope I am wrong.
I nonetheless expect a great deal out of Trump. Now that he is President, I want him to do as he said and improve the country, in a big way.
