Working in newspapers

As I ponder my future, I am faced with a critical fork in the road: continue in journalism or embark on a different career path.

Staying in journalism would remind me a little of the scene in Heat (my favorite movie, by the way) when Vincent Hanna and Neil McCauley ponder why they choose to remain police officers and career criminals, respectively: “I don’t know how to do anything else. I don’t want to do anything else.”

Venturing into a new path, if it’s a job that pays well enough, would allow me to do in my off-time what is my true passion: writing fiction. Rather, it would give me more time. Be that as it may, I suppose you have to make time for what you are truly passionate about.

Decisions, decisions…
