Why did you become a journalist?

Journalism suits my personality. I have a license to pick up the phone and speak to pretty much anyone. I get paid to prod people and ask annoying questions. I like the solitary aspect of the job, but I also like being part of a team. I love that it's a job that everyone instantly understands.
