Can I call myself a journalist if it’s only temporary?

Well I sure hope so…

’cause I GOT A JOB!

No, I don’t know when I start. I have to take a drug test first (I haven’t had one of those since high school!) and they said they’d like me to start ASAP. I don’t really know when that’ll be, so I’ll get back to you on that one. 🙂

I’m filling in for the health & religion writer at a nearby newspaper while said reporter is out of the country. (That means an average of four articles per week from start date until June 17, which is my last day of temporary employment.) There is a possibility of being kept on full time after this temp work ends, but I’ll let you know whether that works out come June.

And um, that’s all for now. Questions? Comments? Suggestions? I’ll come back with a REAL update… sometime.

  1. Health and religion, huh? Seems like two random subjects to throw together…

    Congrats, though! Hopefully this’ll be the start of something big. Here’s to your first Pulitzer!
