Anyone who knows me could tell you I love to talk politics.
Whether the person I’m talking with loves it or not is a different story.
It took until last month at the Dem Debate where I realized how much I loved it. Politics surround almost every aspect of a person’s life; there’s really no limit to what you can write and report on – the politicians on both sides of the aisle will fight about anything.
It’s gone as far to make me consider adding a poli-sci minor.
For two months this summer, those who know me will have a break from hearing me talk about it – to them, anyways.
I’ll be headed to the heart of Washington, D.C. this summer, where the rush and adrenaline from the one night of the Dem Debate will be my everyday as an intern/student at the Institute of Political Journalism.
I don’t know what media outlet I’ll be working at yet, but I know I’ll be in my own little paradise. Grabbing photos of protestors outside the Supreme Court. Walking the halls of the Capitol trying to grab my next story.
Sure, they’ll have a two-month break – but just imagine what they’ll have to deal with when I get back.
