Selling out or buying in?

Is there a difference?

The daily news reporter job did not pan out. I don’t want to say the job was misrepresented at the interview…I will say I didn’t plan on putting 1,500 miles on my car in two weeks.

In the end the commuting was just too much for work I didn’t really want to do in the first place. My reporter dreams were just that, dreams. Being a daily news reporter sounds exciting and I’ve romanticized it all my life, but it’s not what I really want to do. I took the position because it looks good on paper. I want depth, I want time. I want a lot, but mostly I want to not be miserable. I hate coming back to coffee and freelancing, because it feels like giving up, but it’s the only time I have…time.
