You could also start your own blog and write for that while you have your other career, and ideally turn your writing into your career. Journalists hate bloggers because their career is dying while bloggers are stealing readers. Why not hop on the bandwagon?
This actually isnt a bad idea... My sister and I are close and she is the one who i have been discussing this with the most. She told me I should try to do maybe Journalism and try to become a sports statistician. I am fairly decent with mathematics, but i'm leaving the school I attend right now because I literally can't stand it. I'm gonna transfer to Temple next fall, but i'll be attending a community college in the spring.
