I just got a call from my boyfriend telling me about this travel photography/writing gig that would make you travel the country for four months. This is something every writer/photographer, I think, dreams of. You get paid to do something you love while enjoying an all-expense-paid vacation! In a perfect world, I’d quit all my rackets and apply for that. But it’s not.
That job would last only four months, and leaving my current writing gigs for it would simply be unwise. We all hope we can have a job that doesn’t feel like a job, to pursue what we’re passionate about, but the fact remains that we have to earn.
I, at least, have to earn so I continue working for ADB. I content myself with movie reviews and occassional lifestyle stories to feed my need for “fun work”, even though they pay almost nothing.
If you had a choice, if you didn’t have to work for money, what would you be doing?
