Five reasons why being a journalist sucks

Chapter 1

I’m Christy turner and I’m going to list five reasons why being a journalist sucks.

Reason one: You have to get up 5am where I work

On my first day back to work things did not go smoothly like they should do.

First of all I slept through my useless alarm clock and was three hours late, not exactly how a person would like to begin their day. I mean unless they really hate their job. Which I do actually. Hm guess my day started better than I thought. Well anyway the rest of my morning consisted of me constantly going fuck,fuck,fuck, wondering why my period had to treat me like a bitch today and accidently swapping my toothpaste for a chocolate chip cookie in my rush before I finally bundled into a taxi half dressed. The driver seemed to enjoy that one.

Reason two: Whatever you do you get shouted at

‘’CHRISTY TURNER WHY ARE YOU THREE HOURS LATE AND WHY IS THERE COOKIE AROUND YOUR MOUTH, DO YOU NOT CARE FOR HYGIENE?’’

I sidled past my boss Mr. Johnson and sat down, wiping the crumbs away from my mouth. ‘’Bitch’’ I mumbled, looking at the one crumb on my palm. ‘’STEVEN SMITH WHAT ARE YOU STARING AT?’’ I look up to see Steven scratching the back of his neck awkwardly; he’d been staring at me pityingly.  I couldn’t help smile though I was still swearing at the son of a bitch Mr. Johnson under my breath which caused Emma to start giggling before boss screamed his head off at us again. Starting to see why I hate my job so much?

Reason three: Everybody needs to know everything about your personal life

It was lunch before everybody started bugging me.

‘’So why are you so later?’’ said Tom as soon as I sat down. ‘’Stuff’’ I mumbled. Tom nodded and looked at his cup of coffee. He opened his mouth and then shut it like a baby bird. ‘’What is it?’’ I said. ‘’Why does it look like stuffed toilet down your pants?’’ Tom asked. ‘’Because blood is coming out of my crotch. Happy now?’’ I snapped. Tom nodded quickly and scuttled off. Everybody couldn’t help bursting out laughing.

Reason four: If you’re a girl you’re always getting hit on by men (or possibly women)

10:32 Jeremy hits on me

11:12 Bob hits on me

01:47 Mark hits on me

02:06 Sal

02:23 James

03:25 Bob again

And reason five: It isn’t that bad at times

I know what you’re thinking. Christy isn’t this supposed to be why your job sucks? Well shut up and let me explain. My job sucks like I make it sound like. But even this has some good moments.

It’s quite a fun challenge to get up at 5a.m in the morning

Sometimes the things I get shouted at for are quiet funny

Sometimes there are things you want to spill out to other people

It’s a good feeling to be hit on by so many men (and women)

So all of my other reasons make up my final reason why things don’t suck, which means I’ve just wasted all my time telling you bitches this as I don’t really have 5 reasons why being a journalist sucks.



You happy now mother fuckers?

Liam Butler: I am Liam Butler, and I wrote this novel. If that sounds like an AA admission, that's because it sure feels like one. It is traditional for a writer to hate his own work, it is almost a rite of passage to destroy one's own work in a drunken rage for the first time. Perhaps it's the public availab...

serginemuzac: This book had me dieing😂😂😂 It was super lit and I was reading it for the whole day. Its really interesting and I couldnt put my phone down until I finished all 22 chapters! Even though the grammer was a bit off (I actually enjoyed it, it made everything funnier) I really liked it.

Toria Davis: To say this book was amazing would be an understatement. I am absolutely in love with Rye and Thera. I believe that the author did awesome with this book. The funny thing was that I wanted to do this, but remember " You have a boyfriend, idiot." Thanks for the experience of these amazing writing ...

Destiny Lee: This is amazing. It's totally realistic - cool girls have flaws, too, okay?? Totally awkward girl picks up her mom's old bass from her garage, messes around, and realizes, hey, maybe I can move on after all. She has moments where everything's hopeless for her, after all, an alcoholic dad and a fl...

Ruby0h: Overall I thought your story was really good! It drew me in right away and kept me interested as the story progressed. I loved the character of Kayla being inserted into this story, and the way she affected and shaped the life of the original story into something totally new and interesting. I lo...

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

JulieJeanette: I'm only on chapter nine, but so far I am loving this story!. I am on pins and needles hoping that they find good men in their lives by the end. I am American and so the British tone and lingo ('knickers,' 'sod it' ) of the book is very appealing. I had to find out how much '12 stone' was by goog...

romboili000: No a fence to the people who wrote those reviews but u are being to judgmental for a few silly little mistakes anyway I really like your story maybe go back and try to fix those mistakes but also please do not give up I really liked your story. And I know you can get far with it so yeah.

shemotshalom: I never ever read books,I had a little bit of trouble with it in the beginning,I ship Matt and grace but I liked her better with Cole and I would love to see how that would turn out!I still love this book there could've been more drama and I think the tittle could've tricked anyone thinking that ...
