Congrats! That's wonderful news!

I know exactly how you feel! I've been taking piano lessons for as long as I can remember (and for the last 10 years from one of the piano professors here). When the semester gets busy and I show up at lessons not having practiced once the entire week, I start questioning why I'm doing this to myself. Yet every Jan 1 (and this one is no exception) my resolution is to practice more. I guess it's the dream that just won't die!
Also adding on to say that while many "establishment" Republican types may have said they were NeverTrump, exit polls don't quite bear that out (not does the support that he got from establishment Republican types in Congress).

Made they are bigots, but I'm not quite ready to write off the majority of people in my small town by putting them in that category.

From my perspective out here in rural Ohio, there seems to be a third type. People who identify as Republicans and were willing to overlook the horrible racist, sexist things Trump said because he was their standard bearer. The people who I live around and work with are overwhelmingly Trump people but they are certainly not ignorant or duped by false news. They also aren't out and out bigots although some may have some mildly racist views along the lines of color-blindness, etc. From what I've heard in the recent weeks, they just simply didn't care about Trumps' flaws. They feel more comfortable with Republicans in charge than Democrats. They voted for their team and many of them aren't happy that their team was led by Trump but it's still their team.
