My dad always said I will end up in political journalism. He’s wrong. I still do not like politics. I have been exposed to trigger warning and sensitivity about microaggressions that led me to pay attention and be more informed, but politics are complicated. The wide variety of issues ranging from roads to increasing taxes on the rich sometimes goes completely over my head. We all have political opinions – some very strong, but to me, it is all very complicated and sometimes boring.
