Wake Me Up When September Ends

September 4, 2008

Well, true to historic form, September has started off with a harsh jolt. As many of you know the job I was given in April was supposed to start this month. Unfortunately, due to problems in the industry the position has been downgraded to an entertainment reporter position.

For the average person with a Journalism degree this might not be a big deal. I, on the other hand, happen to be a bad reporter. This has become painfully evident in the past weeks as I have slowly taken over these reporting responsibilities.

As many of you know I’m a big weenie and I’ve been crying about this pretty much ever night since I got back from vacation. The worst thing about it all is that my bumbling as a reporter has caused problems for my boss — who I respect and adore. Honestly, I kind of want to be her when I grow up.

And now, I need to talk to her about the situation and I’m scared to death — so I’m a weenie and a chicken.

My dream job has evaporated into a job I never would have even applied for. I don’t want to get fired, but I honestly don’t want to keep being a reporter, but I don’t want to have to find a new job either.

I don’t like any of my options. Bah!

And my job is only part of my September woes.

Okay, thanks for reading my complaints about my life. Let me know if you know about a job opening in the area that seems perfect for me or if you think you know what I should do when I grow up.

Lots of love!
