I usually don’t talk about myself, mainly because you guys are here to read about Imus, not me. But I wanted to mention that I'm changing my name.
Yes, I have graduated from college, and yes, it was incredible. But I'm no longer an undergrad, and so my name might be a little misleading. What to do?
When I created this blog, I could have chosen any alias in the world. But I chose "College Girl" because I was annoyed with the way certain people were hyping the "OH NO OH NO THEY MADE FUN OF WOMEN AND WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE" viewpoint. (According to these people, you are not allowed to hurt a woman unless you're Nicolas Cage in a bear suit). They claimed that every young woman in America had thrown away her dreams and ambitions after hearing the remarks of Messrs. Imus and McGuirk, and I wanted to show that this was not the case. It’s true that the “black” aspect of this was emphasized much more than the “young woman” aspect, but still.
And another thing that is slightly off-topic, yet important: Thank YOU, dear readers, for being intelligent and civil and awesome in general. You've made me laugh and made me think, and I can't thank you enough for that. Conversely, thank you for not starting feuds with each other and not posting psychotic delusions and death threats. Whenever I’ve had to go out of town or to take a few days off from the blog, I’ve never had to worry about coming back to find the place trashed. I’ve also never had to delete a comment that wasn’t blog spam, and I hope that it stays that way. It's pretty neat, in my view, that a bunch of people with differing ages, political views, and geographic locations can discuss a fairly controversial subject without killing each other. In sum: Stay classy.
As for my “new name,” just call me by my initials - CG. They’re a cute set of initials (if initials can be called “cute,”) and I like them. (And it could also stand for “college grad,” which I totally did not realize - thanks, Dee).
But enough about me. So how about that T1 Service at the ranch?
