Despite my years on the earth, I'll admit that recent political events have left me shaken. I've been thinking a lot about our country, my family, friends and customers and what's my role in moving forward in a positive way for all of us. What's different this time is the level of raw emotions all around me. A teacher friend of mine told me that his students have been "rattled" since the election. My LGBT friends are scared for their children's safety. My Muslim neighbors are hiding who they are. A disabled college student I know is worried he'll lose his government loans and have to leave school. Every day, someone discloses their fears like I've never witnessed in my adult life.

Tis’ the season to be thinking “why should I pursue a camp job over an internship” or "real" work.
