Help Wanted in the White House: The Job Description

As the media has inundated people with information on both major party candidates for president, there’s been a lot of talk of who is most “qualified” to run the United States of America and who is most “qualified” to be commander in chief.

This is Me

When I first heard about the #ThisIsMe online awareness campaign for #BFRBweek, I was a little hesitant. It was developed by the Trichotillomania Learning Center (TLC) Millenial Campaign with the purpose of showing the many faces of BFRBs, people of different races, genders, socio-economic statuses, locations, etc. The campaign asks people to make a video talking about themselves and their BFRB (so millennial, which I’m not… Generation X all the way, baby!). I’m not a video person… photograph maybe… blog more likely. So I decided to go with the latter, more old school, text heavy response.
