So let's talk about this job I did an interview for. Sigh. Yeah. It's back in Florida, where I'm from. I occasionally think about moving back to Florida, but someplace like Orlando or Tampa, not the northern part of the state where I grew up. The job sounds like it could be a good one. Y'see, the past couple years I've been thinking "I can't direct forever." I'm far from being old, but I'm getting older, at some point I'll get slow and I won't be able to direct the news at the level I want to maintain. So, I've been looking at doing something that would be a management job at a television station, not necessarily being a department head, but being a second in command to the guy running the news-operations/production department; being a part of the interview process for new hires, putting my own stamp on the training process, being a fill-in director instead of THE director. It's a hard thing to say, but sitting at television station all hours of the night and the clashes with different personalities (anchors, reporters, etc. it happens and I'm bored with it) doesn't hit me the right way like it used to. That's probably something to do with working at my current gig for six years longer than I wanted to be here, but it's how I feel. Anyway this station has an opening for something I'd like to do, something I think I'm qualified to do despite my lack of education. When I got the call to do the interview, it was refreshing. The guy who would be my boss kind of has the same philosophy I have about this business, that making everything automated is great, but getting rid of all the people that want to be in this business really limits the talent pool, especially if you put up all these roadblocks to move on to other stations in larger media markets. I've wanted other jobs I've applied for and interviewed for because I was thinking these jobs could be fun. I want this job because it sounds like it fits me for where I want to go in this business and where I want to be. And the money sounds great, Jesus, the money sounds good. I could fix my family's financial house much easier with this job. Fuck man, I really want this job. Hopefully I hear something in the next week or so. I need to get gone from the gig I've got. I need some new experiences.
