‪#‎ThatAwkwardMomentWhen‬ You spend your WHOLE life, being the annoyingly FOREVER “political minded” friend, go to school/ inherit 30K in debt to become a fake “expert” on poltics, work in the political sphere for over 10 years to gain respect, noteriety and experience, hoping to one day have people respect the fundamentals of ALL politics, esp government politics; only for Donald Trump to for run for president and suddenly inspire EVERYONE and their momma to become a political expert/ machine, in 6 months of memes and Facebook posts!

The co-optation of the political sphere, by the insurgence of opinions and regurgitated thoughtlessness, is devastating! When this happened to photography (re: camera phones). And writing (re: social media). And web/ digital design (re: blogs and photo shop). I mourned the loss of respect for cultivating craft, honoring/ honing YEARS of diligence and training, and professions built by people who dont believe in being an “expert,” but simply in being the BEST. That was when it was just an attack on the arts. NOW, I simply turn over in my early grave.”
