Right now I am on a break from getting my Communcations degree and it is giving me time to think about where I want to go after I am done. I will probably be done by next summer so it is not too bad of a timeline. I have a good job, pays well and has nice benefits. It is really nice having a good job and I shouldn’t complain, but its just that I feel as if I am not doing what I am capable of. I have been looking around on websites for journalism jobs, but I feel that I am not ready and most of what I find needs to have more experience.
I have been trying to keep up with my free lancing for the Examiner. It has been my favorite thing to do and I am glad that I took on the job. It has been a little hard when I get judged for writing about television, some people think it is nerdy or I watch too much tv, but it is what I like to do. I think I would be good at writing news reports, but I want to write about the things I am interested in. Lately though I have had a little bit of writer’s block. I have been trying to tap into my creative side and come up with stories, but sometimes I feel like they aren’t going to be good and just toss them aside. I guess I need to have more confidence. Afterall, it is my page and I am in charge of it. But then again people need to like it in order to come back. I am hoping this little side job pays off later and give me the experience boost that I will need later.
For now I am going to finish school for good and see where things go from there. Hopefully the job market will be better when I am done. Entertainment Weekly would be the ultimate outcome, but I might have to keep dreaming. I just hope that one day all of my hardwork will pay off and I will be doing what I want to do. I am not as good as keeping up with the blogs as much as my friend Tiny Heroes is, but I am going to try.
