My best friend -- my bestie, my bestbian, my maid of honor, my hero, etc. -- is starting her first real lawyer job tomorrow.
But wait. It gets better. She is not about to be one of those lawyers that everyone glares at because they're evil or whatever. No. She's gonna be one of those lawyers who actually makes lives better.
"What is she doing?"
My bestbian is going to be working for a law firm that defends sexual assault victims. She'll be doing legal research to help win cases against sexual abusers. SHE IS ON THE LIFE-SAVING TEAM, YOU GUYS. SHE IS BASICALLY A SUPERHERO NOW.
So, she starts on Monday and she is so excited and so terrified. This is her first real job after law school and it is undoubtedly going to not be filled with joy and wonder all of the time, but she gets to go home at the end of the day and say "Today I played a part in making someone's life better," and that is amazing and she is amazing and I am so full of love and adoration for this person who has been the Tina Fey to my Amy Poehler for the past ten years. She is my soul mate and I am in awe of her every single day.
So, will you all please just tweet at her and tell her how amazing she is and how incredible she will be at this job? She's nervous. Because she cares. She cares so much and she is the best person for this job and I am so unbelievable proud of her. So here is her twitter handle: @MsLBrady
Flood her phone with messages of love and joy and inspiration! Go forth and virtually high-five her!
I love you, Bestbian.
