Journalistic dreams

I often get asked why I chose to major in Mass Media.

Well, simply, it’s because I want to be a journalist.

Then, I get asked why I want to be a journalist.

Most people say they hate writing, but I love it.

I’ve always had a passion for writing since I was in middle school.

My dream job is to be a columnist or editor for a major magazine, preferably in New York.

If I could have it my way, I would live in a studio apartment in Manhattan that was close to a Starbucks and my job so I could walk down the street, get my cup of coffee and head off to work.

Again, most people say they hate big cities because it’s always crowded and people are rude. But, for some reason, I think I would love it. Everyone is trying to get where they need to be, and there’s the sound of the street noise, cabs honking, people talking.

I guess the big city is just for me, even though I have never lived in one.

New York has always been my dream city where my ideal career would be.

In the movie Thirteen Going on Thirty, the main actress works for a magazine in the city where she has to deal with competition from other magazines, sketchy journalists and friend troubles. Not that I like having a troubled life or anything, but that seems like so much fun.

I enjoy challenges, and to have the chance to be in the big leagues taking on these daily tasks seems like a dream.
