I have fairly simple goals for this earth-dwelling life. I’d like to experience everything that interests me, see the entire world and how other humans live in it, and basically do whatever I want almost all the time. But sometimes the world gives you an accomplishment you didn’t foresee wanting, though clearly couldn’t have lived without once it happens.
Such as having a really successful tweet.
Yes, I know, most of my professional colleagues are like “I got published in such and such fancy journal” or “I just got a grant for one miiiiillion dollars,” and all my writer friends are like “check out this kickass byline” and “my book topped the NYT bestsellers list” but I’m like HOLD MY BEER because this thing got like 2k retweets, and many of them from heroes like Jessica Valenti, Margaret Cho, and Amanda Seales.
