I am at an Olympic Assembly reception and there are birds of prey here including Bald Eagles and I HAVE NEVER FELT SO AMERICAN.

For the first time since I graduated, I don’t have an anchor sitting on my shoulders.

For the first time since I graduated, I can fully let myself settle into the town I’ve lived in for over three years, because I now have permanence.

For the first time since I graduated, I can get sick without fear, because I now have health insurance.

For the first time since I graduated, I can start saving for my future, because I now have a retirement plan.

For the first time since I graduated, I can stop worrying that I’ll never find a way to do work that aligns with my career goals.

For the first time since I graduated, I’m not working an internship or a contract role or multiple part-time jobs or a job that teaches me nothing.

For the first time since I graduated, I don’t have to doubt my career goals and choices, because I’m not getting rejection after rejection; because I’m not applying for jobs beneath my skill-set, just to have an income.

For the first time since I graduated, I can watch TV or read a book or write a letter or waste time on the internet without feeling guilty that I’m not applying for jobs, because for the first time since I graduated, I have a permanent, full-time, salaried-with-benefits job that aligns with my career goals.

Guys today I saw Prince Harry give a guy on the other sitting volleyball team a titty twister so really what more could I ask for?
