I get high on breaking news

There’s just something special about working on breaking news, especially the anticipation waiting for something to pop up on the AP wires and the rush of knowing you beat all the other rival outlets to post the story first.

It feels kind of awesome, which is why I don’t think I could be quite as happy working for a magazine or something.

Maybe this is why although some journalists complain about the crappy pay, lack of respect in society and long hours, some still keep at it.
