        I read Missoula in two days; I couldn’t put it down. I felt like a massive piece of garbage afterward. I’m not sure I could do this book either. I’ve read so many books lately that end with hopelessness…I know it’s real and I can’t hide, but still. Yeesh.

          It is hard, because I do want to be politically aware, but it’s tricky to find a balance between that and optimism (/being able to get through the day). That’s why I tend to get my news/politics from tumblr, where it’s in small snippets interspersed with cheerier things.
