So I’ve been watching the original British version of The Office. Check it out on Netflix. Much better than our version, in my opinion.
And I’ve been missing every episode of Arrested Development, season tres.
It’s a little after 3 p.m. and Seth and I are still in our sleeping clothes.
I’m two months into this job, and I’ve managed to get hate calls from the mayors and the police chiefs, among others. I’m very much not equipped to handle these kinds of conversations. I’m not quite ready to argue the case for my job. Always be prepared to answer everyone who asks you, etc. Honestly, it all seems a bit like gossip to me. Professional tattling. Freedom of the press and whatnot. Blah Blah Blah. I rarely had to deal with any crap like this at the ANews. I’m not sure what the deal is there.
I am starting to feel like a new job in the field of my choosing isn’t the answer I was looking for all those months at Starbucks. As many of you know, i have extreme ups and downs on a daily basis with this job. It’s so bizarre.
I did run in to a fellow comrade at Patrick J’s Friday night, and although he was a little tipsy, he gave me the best compliment I’ve had so far as a reporter.
“She’s got potential. You tell her there’s a dead body and she’ll go find it…and she’ll come back with something better than you’ll find in the Dispatch.”
Is this what god made me to be? maybe.
Luckily, the compliment was followed by “Give us 6-8 more months, and we’ll kick your ass, but you’ll move on to something great. You’ll write your own ticket, then.”
I, too, had spent some time crying in the bathroom before this, questioning my career choice and my methods as a reporter, wondering if i knew what the hell i was doing. My comrade’s compliment didn’t convince me otherwise. it just made a perfect distraction. That and the Blue Moon on tap.
Guys, now that we’re “here,” what are we doing? Where do we go next? Are we in Bible studies? are we investing in others? Are we being invested in? Are we tithing? Are we encouraged? Are we treading water? Do we care? Finally, do me a favor. Promise me you’ll never buy a Dominion Home.
I’ve seen what they do, and it’s not pretty.
