You know those moments you know you’ll always precisely remember? Here are the first things we all did in the wake of Donald Trump being elected president.
Garance: Heard Chris say “That’s it, Trump is president” at two in the morning. Curled in the bed as much as I could and forced myself back to sleep trying to make sense of the world.
Brie: Cried reading the news in the loo.
Emily: Cried while eating a piece of toast and having my morning coffee.
Tori: Organized my entire apartment (so something in my life made sense)…And cried.
Carie: Cried. So much. Then watched “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” to take my mind off of things. Then cried some more.
Brittany: I went to the bodega and bought two bags of gummy bears.
Pia: I went for an extra long run because I couldn’t sleep. That night, I went out to dinner with my boyfriend so we didn’t sit around the house and mope.
Erik: Went to bed before it was announced and then prolonged checking my phone the next morning for as long as possible.
Alison: Woke up to the NY Times update on my phone. Proceeded to cry.
Natalie: Walked sad and sleep deprived to the subway. Took comfort in looking at strangers who seemed to feel the same way as me.
