So, I would post something long and sappy being Thanksgiving and how thankful for all of you in my life…
…but I won’t.
Instead, I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving with family and friends. Please remember also to think about the ones who can’t be here whether they are members of your family, friends, or our troops overseas.
To my friends on here who don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (or had it earlier in the year), I hope you have a great rest of your day.
This is an idea I had the other night while I was at work. The only thing I would do differently is make the Commonwealth (or state) of Virginia blue, but keep the semicolon orange.
Why orange and blue? Because the University of Virginia is and was my first love when it comes to college sports. Why the outline of Virginia? Because it is my home. Why do both? Because that way when I’m struggling, I can look at it and know that I’ve been through hell and back AND I have my home state watching over me in case I do mess up.
What do you think? I like this idea. I just need to get it done. Tattoo? Maybe? Eh?
As I’m watching the news last night and into this morning and when it looked more and more likely that Mr. Trump was going to win, my anxiety started to creep up on me some.
It’s because I know a lot of people that are illegal immigrants (but have their green card and work permit), struggle through the same issues I have, and are part of the LGBTQ community.
I’m worried about all of them because; that medication used that I take for my anxiety and depression will sky rocket, I’m worried for my friends that are part of the LGBTQ community because either a lot of them have partners or are already married, and a lot of people that I work with and other friends will end up having to leave the nation.
It’s a sad day in America. But then I remember also, everyone made a fuss eight years ago after Obama was elected and that turned out to be not too bad. Maybe something will happen with Mr. Trump? Like they say, the first one hundred days are the biggest ones to a President.
Please DO NOT leave political comments here. Thank you.
What is your favorite day of the year that is not your birthday or some major holiday?
Mine is Election Day. Why?
It is the one day of the year where we get to make our voices heard across our state/commonwealth and across the nation. It is the one day where we get to release our feelings finally and then hope and pray for the best.
As the results get ready to come in a few hours, I am interested to see how this turns out and see where we go as a nation from here.
To those that unfriended friends and family because of this election, I hope you guys learned that it is okay to have different opinions than your own. Not only that, but you should never discuss politics with friends and family. For me, I make mine brief if I were to bring it up.
Buckle up America. It’s going to be a fun ride.

If there is anything that describes me, it would be this.
Every day I go to work, live my life, and do everything I can to make others happy. Most of the time, I forget about my own needs and when the time comes that I need some help, I don’t get a lot of it, or any at all. Of course, when you are like me and have anxiety and depression, this doesn’t usually go too well.
Like I mentioned in my last post, I do feel lonely at times and it makes me sad that there are not a lot of people I can turn to because most don’t know how to deal with it or say the wrong thing to irritate me.
I know the last few days I’ve felt a bit down and upset, but I still put on a happy face for everyone. I just have to learn to be more honest with myself…and to others.
That’s all for now. I hope everyone is having a great day.
