Honestly I am kind of scared. As a Democrat who hates the current President. I sincerely hope that Biden wins. I am here as I am typing this comforting my trans and gay friends who are scared to death of getting their rights taken away and for me, a mixed girl, to have to face more ongoing police brutality; and not to even mention COVID. Biden is in the lead right now, which is a plus, and I hope it stays that way. I love politics, as I am not afraid at all to get political, but all of this is seriously stressing me out which in turn is causing me to fall behind on my classes a bit, but I think I can make them up with no problems. My mindset right now is pretty stressed as I am still worrying about my classes in hopes that I do well for the semester so that I can keep my scholarship. I am certain that I do, but there’s always that “what it” that lingers in the back of my mind. Thankfully, I have therapy every two weeks to share what’s on my mind as well. Finally, the holidays themselves are approaching, and I am a bit scared of that as this Thanksgiving is the one year anniversary of my great grandmother’s death, whom I was very close to, so it will be depressing for me I am sure.
