I had another post almost finished when the election results started rolling in from the UK so you'll have to wait another day for career advice from Leslie Knope. In case you've been living under a rock, today the UK voted on whether to #remain or #brexit the European Union. Vox has a nice chart that outlines (very simply, of course) how this all came to be and the BBC is tracking the results here. Right now, it looks nearly certain that the UK has voted to leave the EU.
Now, I'm not a Brit (just dating one) and I can get pretty eye-rolly when people in other countries with strong opinions about another country's politics start stomping their feet and waving signs and wearing "Feel the Bern" t-shirts. So, this post isn't an in-depth examination of the pros and cons of the vote, nor is it a thoughtful and nuanced reflection on British colonialism and what this means for their place in history and the world. No, this post is a reminder to Americans that the unfathomable can actually become reality.
