network lobby

the internet doesn’t need any more firsthand accounts of how fucking weird masculinity is but I’ve had to deal w men who got legitimately angry abt the fact that we keep food network on in the lobby and i don’t understand that like at all

YOU GUYS

I was just offered an internship at the fucking badass health policy organization I’ve been involved with since 2013. 

I AM FINALLY (somewhat) OFFICIAL and they have a project for me which is absolutely fucking PERFECT working with people in the coverage gap, collecting their stories, encouraging self-advocacy, etc. 

I’ll be writing, researching, lobbying, and NETWORKING. I have a seat at the table for all the important closed-door meetings. 

I’ll get to be right in the middle of the “overtime” interim session where the new medicaid expansion will be created/debated/passed. 

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE WANTED AND I AM S.O. E.X.C.I.T.E.D
