Hello readers. I was planning to make an update post about how I’m still still not dead, even after my last two long absences. There’s been a lot going on with me. I passed the bar and have been working for a judge for a few months now assisting with research and sitting in on trials. It’s been interesting and occasionally crazy, and I could write a whole post about how despite that it’s still not nearly as exciting as a Phoenix Wright game or even a Law & Order episode, or about how you really really shouldn’t go to law school.
But now that we’ve elected a god damn Caligula as our president, there doesn’t seem to be much of a point doing that now. I still can’t believe this happened. All you folks who voted for Trump and are deliriously happy right now – I don’t bear any ill will against you. But I will ask you one or two years from now if you feel the same way you do now. You’ve put a con man into the White House. Hillary might have been a typically corrupt politician, but she wasn’t really any different in that case from any of the other typically corrupt politicians we’ve had in office in the past. Trump is different – and not in a good way. Mark my words and remember them years from now. If we’re still around, that is. I’m sorry for the off-topic post this morning but I had to say something about this. As a Muslim (sort of lapsed, but still) with a lot of Arab family who was born and raised American, I honestly feel kind of like a Jew in Europe in the 1930s now.
Okay, so maybe that’s too dramatic. But after all the poisonous rhetoric that’s come out this election cycle, can you blame me? In any case, I’m not going anywhere, and I plan to get back onto a regular writing schedule here, if only to help distract myself from what’s going on right now. I did just buy a PS4. What better way to distract myself from reality?
