America’s Next Bill Clinton!


I got a job offer from a pro-choice organization.

Bam! There you have it, baby! Forgive me for gloating, but I think I just shut some doubters up about my ability to sustain myself after I get out of the Army.

My parents, the Army and conservative “friends” have been worried – how will I survive after the Army? Here’s how: you get a job offer without even having to submit a resume. People remember me and see my work and ability and skills and drive and passion and intelligence!

To be sure, I’d already had a low-paying intership offer up in DC. But today, after a few days of being in contact with a prominent pro-choice organization to volunteer for them, and after conversations with them, I’ve been offered a job in the public relations/strategic communications department for this organization …this pays well enough, and it allows to continue my passion, stay in the DC/NoVA area and still finish school. That’s how you build a political career!

A few months ago, the Army offered me $25,000 to re-enlist …and pushed me to sign the paperwork as the “window was closing” on that bonus. I declined. Although I’ve not officially accepted this job, as I am exploring other possibilities, I can officially tell the Army to take their $25,000 and shove it.

This should shut my parents the hell up, too. Although I am sure someone is going to come along and tell me that I will be making my living killing babies. :0)

I get to work in an area of interest, something I am passionate about and I get paid for it? This is not work – it’s pure pleasure – with a condom, of course – as one of my jobs will be to promote contraception vs. abstinence!
