         Everybody has to make that one choice in life. The choice that decides who you are going to be “when you grow up”. Each  job requires a different skill. Some jobs require you to have multiple skills. With that stated,lets move on.
 

            Being a newspaper reporter can require such skills. Questions must be asked,Statements should be understood, and curiosity should determine your path. You need to be able to meet the most important people in the state and be able to construct a conversation with ease.
 

When you get assigned a topic or event to report on,you need to be ready for anything. You could interview a mass murderer or find out how to scuba dive so you can learn how to “take the plunge” or you could do something as simple as interviewing an author for a famous book that's coming out. One thing you will find interesting is the amount of famous people you can meet. You can meet a famous football player or maybe even the mayor.

Its not all fun and games though,you need to record and write down everything you learn about during your day. But the hardest part is getting it done before the deadline. It can be stressful and hard at times and can keep you up all night.
 

Don't  forget. when you are older and retired you will have a long list of stories to tell your kids and your kids kids. Is it a hard job? yes. Is it worth it? Of course.
