New Year, New Posts

Happy new year! I didn’t get as many posts in this past year as I had planned, so I’m making posting weekly my New Year’s Resolution – I hope you’re ready to learn more about awesome women in history! I’d also like to get back in to posting about politics and historical movies, and try my hand at book reports, so get pumped for that. Check back this Wednesday for our first Women in History Crush Wednesday of the year. Thanks for sticking with me!


Guess Who’s Back, Back Again

It’s been a couple months now since I last posted…my apologies for the unexpected hiatus. But thanks to a friendly reminder from Juan Duenas, I’m back! I’ve kept busy with my research – I have a couple dozen articles ready to publish, and will start sharing them with you starting tonight. I know I have some catching up to do; I promise to finish some of the things I started last year, it may just take some time. This year, we’ll continue learning about women in history and discussing current events in the political world, especially as the presidential debate draws closer, but we’ll also embark on adventures with museums exhibits, historical inaccuracies in movies, women in politics and positions of power globally, and some European history. I’m excited to share what I’m learning with you, stick around for an intellectually expansive 2016!

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming…

Today marked the beginning of my last year in high school, which I’m thrilled about! I can’t wait for all the good times and memories this year will bring. But that, of course, isn’t what school is entirely about.

I’m enrolled in several AP courses this year, including European History and United States Government right now and Macro-Economics in the spring, all of which will benefit the content of this blog. Hopefully amidst the melee of my senior year, I’ll be able to delve deeper into some of the more interesting and convoluted tidbits of history we’re covering in class (and some we may skip over) to write some quality posts.

In this way, we’ll be able to learn together. If at any point you have a suggestion or request for me to research and write about, please let me know! I’d love to discover with you.

Before I continue, I’d like to say thanks to you, my dear readers. I’m so appreciative that you take the time to read what I’m writing – it’s surreal. And thank you to those who have shared and continue to share my posts, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!

Good luck to all my fellow students out there! We’ll make it through this year like champs.

Be heard!

Welcome to Audiēmur!

Welcome to my blog! My name is Allie Schauer, and I’m a history loving teen growing up in suburban Texas. I’m currently a senior in high school, and I’m hoping to study history in college in order to then pursue a degree in law. I love talking about politics and history, my dogs, and music, so we’ll see if and how those topics coexist. This is my first time blogging, bear with me and hopefully we’ll figure this out together!

You may be wondering about the title of this blog. Audiēmur is Latin for “we will be heard,” a phrase which to me represents both a goal and a promise. Change doesn’t happen by chance. You have to work for what you want changed, you have to be heard. And that doesn’t mean just shouting at the next person who will listen. Being heard can mean advocacy, volunteering, protest, petitions, boycotts, letters, podcasts, blogs – being heard is about effectively standing up for what you believe in.

This blog will follow my adventures in learning about and understanding history and politics, realms where using your voice is a necessity. I’ll focus on American aspects of both, but don’t be surprised when we talk global. I would love for you to comment with your opinions on different topics as often as you see fit; that’s how this whole political thing functions.

In short, thank you for checking out my blog, and remember to be heard!
