1. The big stuff, like Brexit, and Syria, and the President, and benefit cuts and the continuing existence of Nigel Farage – is going to happen. And it might break your heart, but all you can do is know that you did your bit in your own small way to set the world to rights. A vote, a tweet, a blogpost. Buying refugees gifts on Amazon, buying homeless people coffee in the morning. Doing whatever you can to make your world the one you want to live in. Sometimes that just means knowing that you’re a good person, and believing that even in a scary world, if there are enough good people out there being good, we’ll be alright in the end.
2. And when you’re really despairing about the state of things, the best thing to do is find like-minded people and get really, really drunk with them and rant about it.
3. If you try to cover red hair dye with blonde, you’ll get orange. That was a scary couple of hours.
