So about last week.. That post got more traction then I would have expected and I got a bunch of good feedback. I think people are still in a crazy emotional place over the election, but slowly calming down. That’s not too say it is all not still terrifying, but at least now, the initial shock is going away. Before just returning to normal blogging, I will say that while Donald has made some encouraging statements, his appointments have been nothing short of terrifying..
- Top Adviser: Steve Bannon.. White Supremacist and one of the figureheads of the alt-right.. Google him. “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they (liberals) get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing,” he said in an interview published Friday
- EPA Transition Leader: Myron Ebell… Famous for Climate Change science denial despite not actually having an scientific training or expertise. We can only assume it has nothing to do with the fact that his major lobbyist funding comes from the energy industry. It’s like picking a KKK leader to lead the NAACP. Good timing after the two hottest years on record too.
- Mike Pence: Ya ok I get he is the VP and all… Lets not forget when his website had this on it though, “Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behavior.”
- Attorney General: Jeff Sessions: Homeboy was deemed too racist for federal judgeship by the freaking GOP senate. Google this guy.
Anyways.. Life goes on. So normal blog post I suppose.
24 tomorrow. That’s weird. Age is a funny thing. Within the CMC/UNI world 24 feels unspeakably old, but in the work/London world everyone still makes fun of me for being a ‘baby’. Ready for 24 though. 23 was a slow starter, but ended at an all time high.
To that point^^ The last week has been insanely great. Finally saw the Book of Mormon Tuesday! Incredible production. 10 of 10 would recommend.
Thursday spontaneously went and saw Flume at a massive venue called Alexandria Palace. 10,000 person venue. While not Flume’s best show ever.. Super fun night.
Then to close it out went and saw Fantastic Beasts last night. Almost melted when the WB logo came on the screen. While the story was simpler and not the level of depth Potter might be known for, the new world translated super well into a movie. Magic in America is good news for everyone. Also finally had, Nandos, the most British meal ever..
Weird how settled everything feels now. London is just home and cold fog is standard. Couldn’t be happier though. I enjoy the work I am doing, the people I work with, the place I live, my commute and my weekends. Miss everyone terribly but also cool building up a new life in a new world.
Anyways. Boring post but I felt like writing.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
