If you're reading this at any point after November 8th, 2016, then the world hasn't ended on Election Day and you've survived the United States presidential election with (hopefully) your sanity intact.
There is one thing to be said for this election - that it is a historic first. The first time we've had a viable female candidate as the first choice from a major party. It's also the first time in the modern political era someone outside of the establishment has earned the nomination from a major party.
However, there can only be one winner, and that winner and soon-to-be 45th president of the United States is (somewhat surprisingly) Donald Trump. Much is uncertain about a Trump presidency, but one aspect is clear - things are going to change in 2017.
In his victory speech from his campaign headquarters in New York City, the president-elect urged Americans to "come together asone united people" and even praised his opponent Hillary Clinton for her service to our country.
