I guess to start off this blog, I should introduce myself. My name is Abby Beauregard, I’m a sophomore and majoring in geography, economics, and hopefully environmental studies. I think I’m really funny on Twitter, I’m in love with the Crown Prince of Jordan, and I once got groped by Bill Clinton at a party. I used to be a business major but then Trump got elected and I realized I needed to do something that actively encouraged public service. So, I did a brief stint as a global studies major before realizing Arabic is hard and a career in public service would probably cause me to have way too many mental breakdowns than I can handle (and, for the record, my mental breakdown tolerance is fairly high). So here I am.
I’m starting this blog because in talking to my friends and loved ones, especially women, I’ve noticed just how hard the election of Cheese Puff has taken a toll on them, and on me as well. I couldn’t exactly find a place to express my thoughts and disappointments but to also laugh, encourage progress and realize how important it is to take care of yourself in what is truly the wildest point in human history, so I decided to create one. As a disclaimer, I am not a mental health, political or generally anything expert but I’m going to woman up and try to figure it all out. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time but in all honesty, haven’t fully been able to put my thoughts into words in a way that I think people would identify with and enjoy.
I’d love to hear topics that people are interested in addressing and I’m hoping to incorporate some interviews with the women in my life that I love and have been learning from over the past few months.
I’ve decided to close each week’s entry with a prediction of something Trump could do in the next week that wouldn’t surprise me. This week’s guess, flying to California and daring Kim Jong-un to try to fire a missile at the United States. Until next week!
