Evaluating an opportunity isn’t easy. Even your dream job will have less exciting aspects. Things that are downright boring. I know from experience.
As a nontraditional student, I juggled my college classes with a full-time job. As a twenty-something, I did my best to find time for a bit of social life as well. It took me almost 7 years to get my B.A.
After graduating with a degree in English and a minor in Media Studies, I landed a job as an assistant editor with a national 4-color magazine. My first month on the job I was writing the news column. Since it was a small publication, in a few months I was writing feature articles and helping the photographer with cover shoots.
It was awesome.
I loved every minute of it.
