I’ve been offered a job at the Cleveland Advocate (not the one in Ohio), but I don’t think I’m going to take it. I know, I know, but the gig only pays $7 an hour and I would have to relocate to New Caney or Porter and I probably wouldn’t even be able to make rent. I’m working as a stringer for the Spring Observer right now. They pay me $25 per article and $15 per picture. It’s hardly worth it, but at least I’m getting published. My Aunt Judy told me that the Bay City Tribune is still looking for a reporter. So far, out of all the newspapers I’ve interviewed for, The Tribune pays the most. Maybe I should move to Bay City. Currently, I’m waiting to hear back about an assistant manager’s position at an ice cream shop here in Spring.
