In another universe, I’m excitedly getting ready to board a plane for Amsterdam. My posts are ready for the next three weeks, and I’m all packed, the Lyft to the airport booked.
In this universe, every part of that trip was cancelled, including being allowed into the Netherlands.
I swear today is the last day I’ll complain about it, with all that’s going on, it’s not a real problem, but what I can’t get over is how trump managed to destroy this country and the whole world in just under four years. I always thought everything was more solid than that.
I knew it would be bad but wow.
Granted he had help, and by help, I meant directions, and yet still, here we are in a place where my favorite daydream–travel–has become terrifying rather than invigorating.
The very culture of everything has changed.
Outside it looks lovely, blue sky and a few clouds, some puffy, some streaky. I will try to remind myself of all the annoying things I won’t have to deal with by staying home, and take the weekend to just relax.
I hope you can do the same. Have a great Friday.
