I've been procrastinating writing a blogpost for months on end as I am not only buried in homework but also every other thinkable form of procrastination. I have so much I want to share but felt a bit daunted having to reemerge after such a long phase of silence - I felt it had to be something really exciting or really different. 

I've realised it simply won't be. I know every single conversation ends in this topic at the moment but it is something that truly baffles me. As I sit and watch endless vlogs and snapchat stories of people attending march after march, protest and protest and witty signs after sign is posted on instagram  I can't feel anything but helplessness. I am stunned that this is reality and that I can't and no one really has the power to do anything about it. Trump's actions over the past week or two whether that be his ban on the entering of the people several muslim countries or his move to go ahead and build a crude oil pipeline through Native American sacred land seem to horrifying to be true. I think Leandra Medine of Man Repeller  (anyone who knows me knows she is my absolute favourite human) put's it pretty well (as always) in writing: "It doesn’t seem appropriate to resume regular programming this morning without some form of acknowledgement of what’s 
going on and how it’s shaken us"
