I did consider leaving journalism, more than once. These days it’s down to a couple of times a week… I was tempted by other professions, angered by harassment or discrimination, neither of them subtle, and at some points I also despaired of being able to climb out of debt and/or raise my children on a journalist’s salary, especially in the Bay Area. I stayed because, corny as it is, I love this profession. I love being excited about what I do, the people I do it with, the way it plays out in the world, and I love ending every day having learned something new.
