So on December 29th, 2016 I decided to go on a social media hiatus. No Facebook, Twitter, IG, NOTHING. It was one of the most relaxing and annoying month in my adult life.
I continued therapy, meditation, working out, and connecting with myself but I knew I had to still stay connected so I only used my news app and read the news, along with my weekly podcasts. Which allowed me to stay connected.
Unfortunately...the news was EXTREMELY over saturated with the President that the people without common sense voted for. I'm sorry, I DONT GIVE A FLYING FUCK if he was a business man, a CHANGE from the politicians, or whatever you thought he was that the other candidates were not possessing; You asswipes voted for a racist, mysoginistic, xenophobic, homophobic white supremist. In the words of DJ Khaled "You Played Yourself". The people who shocked me the most were the immigrants and other minorities that voted for him. I hope he ships y'all asses out, just saying. To the people who voted for him in opposition to "Obamacare" and lost your ACA benefits...you clearly need a psychological consultation...but wait, YOU CANT AFFORD IT. Smh. Idiots. But anyway I digress...
I knew I would need a hiatus to mentally prepare myself for the upcoming years. So I took one, but I would literally need to cut myself off of all forms of media which sucks because great things are happening (especially in the black community). The supremecy of "Fences", "Hidden Figures", and "Moonlight" taking over any and all award shows. (Dear management, No more slave movies, please). These beautiful albums that are being release that discuss our struggles, our joys, our happiness, even our ratchetness. Black peoples literally SHATERING all records. It's so disappointing we gotta over shadow this man constantly just to maintain our sanity. Like Daddy Pope says "You have to work twice as hard to get half of what THEY (meaning white people) get.
I will say this though. This foolishness will not halt my excellence. I'm focused and 2017 will be great regardless. I also encourage everyone to do the same. Just because you're not happy with the results of what this country is turning into, you CANNOT withdraw from this world and the opportunities that are available to you. Just keep your eyes wide open on everything:
I hope you all are ready, because people's true feelings are about to show so get ready...
P.S. To my white friends who were against the orange nightmare. This is your issue as well. I fine it ironic that when a minority individual does some thing vile you group them together, but when it's one of your kinds (yep went there) it's a lone person, a single wolf, etc. well...the MAJORITY of your kind (went there again) voted for him. Please GET YOUR PEOPLE TOGETHER.
