This week, like the other three…JUST. FLEW. BY.
Monday- I attended a Notley presser with a shooter. Asked a couple of questions. Good times! I don’t mind interviewing politicians. I figured out what works best for me, and I’ll fill y’all in when I get back, in case you’re interested.
Tuesday- I pitched a story about education, and was given the green light to chase it. Both of my contacts (necessary for the story to stick) were on sabbatical. 😦 But the assignment editor thought the story was cool. So it’s something I will follow-up on, when both of them return.
Wednesday-Went out with Alesia and Todd, to chase a Gas story. Got back and wrote my version of the story as a pack (for my demo). Attended the live with Alesia so that I could film my standup. It is now with the video editing weekend editing team, as is some of my other work, so I should have it in a couple of weeks, for my demo.
Thursday-chased a tip about a family in need of help, and I was tasked to conduct a (feeler) informal interview, to see if it was indeed, a story. It sure is. 😦 Since it’s ongoing, I won’t be able to add any details here, but heart-breaking and I hope we can get to the bottom of this. It was very difficult to know that I wouldn’t be able to continue to chase the story.
I am thankful that I got a chance to meet them, and hear their story. Letting go is tough.
Friday-Wrap up. Most of the morning we were chasing the “bomb/suspicious package” story…During that time, I kept myself busy working on scripts, and voicing. A little bit of chase producing, too.
Spent some time saying good bye to everyone. 😦
Made a point of having a quick meeting with Jeff Little to get some feedback/advice about my practicum and future aspirations.
All in all, no regrets…except that I wish my practicum/internship was longer. Seriously. Especially since I got so attached to the environment.
I am seriously going to miss a good chunk of people there.
So much to say, but I’m wordy as it is, 🙂 so I’ll leave it at that.
