Livin’ the dream

I want to start out by saying: I love my job. I do. I get to be around small children and puppies but also congressmen and commissioners. But I do dream of bigger things.

What might my dream job be, you ask? Well, apparently I can’t be on the news team at The Daily Planet, as it’s “fictional,” so I’ll have to go with these:

  • Theatre Reviewer – Um, yes, please. Free tickets to shows? Interviewing actors and directors and producers and play people? Free tickets? Doing something I love every day? Free tickets? Yes, yes, yes.
  • Writer for the Seattle Weekly. It comes out weekly and also has an online presence with news blogs, etc. It’s all the crazy stuff that goes on in Seattle. Oh, and they do theatre reviews. See above.
  • Education reporter. Working with the kiddies every night and day. That’s the best part about working here, but then I wouldn’t have to deal with so many adults all the time.
  • Books reporter. This one is not even just about reviews, which I would also enjoy writing. I would love to talk to authors about what makes them tick, how they get the ideas for stories, etc.
  • Movie and Entertainment news. This one is sort of iffy, actually. I love reading this stuff (all the time) but I don’t know if I would ever actually be able to write it. Calling agents and all that jazz? Not really for me. But, if I got to interview actors? That’s the way to go!

    Amen to Seattle Weekly, or the Stranger.

    I wish my education reporting involved more kiddies. I talk to a lot of administrative propagandists and budget analysts.

    Eh … education reporters have to do with a shithole of school politics and busybody parents … as well as state officials … just sayin’

    you forgot RESTAURANT REVIEWER!!!

    I would love to write about Paris Hilton’s hair extensions law suit. But after a few months, I’d probably miss dead bodies 😉

    I realize there would be a whole lot less kiddies and more adults, but at least it would be on kiddie-related issues. And not things like the hospital board. Yuck.

    Also, restaurant reviewer would be awesome, but I don’t really think I am qualified. I can never find appropriate descriptors. And I think everything tastes good.

    And Lynsi, I spend way more time on the Seattle Weekly website than I should. WAY more.
