If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you know I’m a reporter. I love my job. I almost never know what I’ll get myself into each day before before I arrive at 8:30.
On some days, I’m sitting at my desk making phone calls, writing emails, lining up interviews, or doing paperwork.
Other days, I’m all over the place. I get to learn so much. And a lot of the time, I get to be active.
I am doing a profile of a nearby provincial park that has a ton of hiking and exploring opportunities. After doing a couple of interviews, my camera person (love her face) and I needed some supporting visuals. We didn’t really plan ahead and both had sandals on (live and learn), but we. walked. everywhere. With a heavy, awkward tripod. It was a workout!
The only problem? The two of us shared this for lunch on the way out:
Plus a carton of strawberries. Not enough. I almost ate my hand on the way home. Again, live and learn.
The moral of this story is that I love having a job that allows me to leave the office. Some people do well with sitting at a desk all day, but that’s not my thing. Being able to get out and explore is wonderful!
Do you have a job that allows you to be active? If you have a job that involves a lot of sitting, do you ever crave activity from 9 to 5?
