florida midterm election
Start writing a post

We all sat down Tuesday, November 2018 for our midterm election. Waiting at the end of our seat for the results of the Florida Governor and the Senate and House seats. While all Floridians were stressed eating or drinking others couldn't help but start pacing as the results slowly trickled in.

The final results: Ron Desantis with 49.7% of the votes while Andrew Gillum with 49%. Twitter had a lot to say about this race for Florida. While some were for it, 49% of Florida was not having it.

Andrew Gillum ran a fair race, he ran with integrity, and with respect. While Ron Desantis showed a commercial teaching his daughter to build a wall so she won't get "hurt". This is the person that Florida decided to have as Governor? The man who thinks teaching a child to speak is holding up a "Make America Great Again" poster and telling a young impressionable little girl that this what it means to be an American?

I'm so disappointed in Florida especially all those who failed to vote because they felt like, "My voice doesn't matter" if all those who felt like their voices did not matter and wanted to vote to make their voice matter the tide would have been changed.

Yes, Florida is divided just like every other state in our country, but do not complain about the disarray of things if you failed to:

a. take the initiative in being proactive about our country

b. If you didn't take the 11 minutes it takes to go vote

c. If you didn't bother to remind people that our voices matter and we shall be heard no matter what

d. If you failed to fight for our rights (which is a state right)

I was rooting heavily for Andrew Gillum and not the man who lied, cheated, and kissed Donald trumps ass, so hard that I'm sure he got some of Trumps Ass Juice in his mouth, the whole race.

Florida, specifically those who are mourning for our nation, it is okay to cry and be angry. But, just remember, tomorrow we rise and fight harder.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
