Its a whole NEW strange world!
My friend Danielle told another teacher about my blog. It wasn't very smart of her to do that. This other teacher is terrible and was threatened by me, I think, so she told my PRINCIPAL about my blog. She claims she just mentioned it in "passing" while a few people were talking about blogs, but I know she just told him. Anyway, he told me that he knew about my blog, and that he didn't want me using our school's name in any bad way. That was IT! You probably remember from my earlier posts how much I hated that job, anyway, and when he started infringing on my basic human rights, I knew I had to go. I gave them notice and quit.
I felt ok about this because I'd had an interview for another job: my dream job. My uncle had an "in" at one of the local tv stations, and got me an interview with their Assignment Manager. For those of you who don't know, the Assignment Manager basically decides what stories the reporters do. Anyway, to make a long story short...I GOT A JOB WITH THEM! I am working at the Assignment Desk, which is a very busy job and you really have to keep your cool. It's a lot of fun and I've been doing it for almost two weeks already! The hours are bad: I work dayside on the weekends and mornings monday through wednesday. Still, I get my weekend nights off to go dancing and I'm done at lunchtime during the week!
I really think this new job is for me. I've already made great friends with everyone at the station, and I totally have a nose for news. I get to listen to police scanners and hear about things as they happen, and I have to call a "beat list" of people everyday to see what they are doing! I've been told that people sometimes get to go up in helicopters if they can handle it, and I really think I would be good at that.
