Slept in and then walked to the Mexican restaurant outside my morality courses. I was excited to see my student mentor Milda waiting in line, who I hadn’t seen for months. I had a delightful lunch with Milda and her friend, but was embarrassed when I had to explain why Donald Trump will be our next president even though he received almost two million fewer votes than Hillary.

My morality courses were interesting as usual. In my first class we studied Israeli philosopher Yael Tamir’s ‘Liberal Nationalism’- an attempt to reconcile state nationalism with liberal ideas of social justice. I was unconvinced. In my later class we studied terrorism.

Picked up dinner on the way home.
