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?

Nivedita patyal: I loved the plot of the story and all the crazy characters...I laughed so hard and loud while reading it as it have everything from twins to crazy friends, highschool, football, fashion and of course relationships and love triangles....I would say it's A GREAT ROMANTIC AND HUMOROUS STORY

Karl12: This story is written in a fun, amusing way, which caught my attention from the very beginning. This, so to speak, “free” style of writing is something I really enjoyed. It gives a great flow to the story, makes it interesting, easy to read and keeps it dynamic. I loved that both Nate’s and Laney...

christylynnr5: This book was absolutely amazing. It had romance, comedy, and mystery. Sid is a girl that pretends to be a boy and goes to an all boys school. Of course there is going to be romance. There's comedy in the story because Sid's character is carefree and has no filter making her bluntness and sarcasm...

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Dhira Vidhea, author of Boy Who Broke In My Window, an otherwise engaging tale of love and acceptance of the quirkiest of individuals, whose overall conception of the plot is spot-on and whose writing style is impeccable and as for her writing skills they are the best I've ever seen, tho...

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...

yogashri asyosa: i liked the way the story revolves. it was interesting with Sara and Allie. i would have thought bring Max in the POV of Sara could have been elaborate so the drama could have been even thickyes there is few grammar errors but i was able to make it up !! Had a good time reading !!

M.Jones: Its rare i come across stories with women relationships and its rather realistic, but at the same time its as a fantasy in terms of a shinning knight and a princess type style. The only thing was I was having some issues at parts with keeping track of who was saying what and who was talking at ti...

Tavis Ryan King: "What Happened to Charlie Carmine" is a fabulous mo-gee-toe cocktail fuelled midget orgy of psychology, fantasy and sarcasm. I laughed out loud when reading this novel so many times it made the London commuters I shared space with look at me with curious disdain - and I did not care.The protagoni...

Jaslyn: I loved reading this so much!! The transformation of Nina's self-esteem was incredible to read, and while I was rooting for Parker halfway through, I was very satisfied when Harrison and Nina finally got everything straight. The side characters were adorable - I especially loved Anna, Richel, Mic...

Kassidy Duncan: This is a really sweet story, and I'm really enjoying the premise! It's cute, but also is put forward well in terms of a TV drama (as in, I could definitely see this being acted out). There were a few spelling and grammatical errors that I noticed, but other than that, it was a great read.

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 ...

gilbertgg: Not a bad book, but the editing needs to be stepped up a bit. The plot seems to work and kept me entertained, though.
