Today I wore a plaid/flannel button down shirt tucked into a black lace pencil skirt from H&M, black tights and two-tone riding boots.
We are located in an office building and in the elevator this morning a woman pressed the Penthouse button, and I wondered where she was going.
My main assignment throughout the day was a task that involved photocopying, addressing envelopes for, and stuffing correspondence that would be sent to 150 recipients.
The best analogy I have for it is when a fundraiser recruits donations for an auction. Every member in that organization recruits certain stores and restaurants to donate gift baskets, gift cards etc. In this case, I was the "organization" and instead of phone calls or going door to door, it was all paper mail. Also, we were not seeking donations or gifts-- we were seeking the truth.
To the people who say traditional news gathering is dead, I just have to tell you the process took the better part of my day (and beginning of Day 3- so stay tuned!) and traditional news gathering is not dead. It is alive.
It makes me feel proud to be a part of an operation that puts such emphasis and care on fact-gathering and an operation that does not cut corners, and honors the tradition set forth during the beginnings of broadcasting years ago. (This is the real take away from Day 2... if you stopped reading now, you wouldn't miss much.)
Nothing more of note has happened since Day 2. I left work and met my family for dinner, which was great, but I actually got stuck behind a drawbridge in the up position on the way there. I'm curious what the odds of that happening actually are.
In between Day 2 and Day 3 of internship I had Day 2 of class. Miami is experiencing some "cold" weather at the moment and I wore leggings, a sweatshirt, denim jacket and scarf to class. Me? One of those crazy people who thinks 60 is cold? Guilty as charged.
My textbooks came in the mail and I'm looking forward to reading and actually understanding what's happening in class. Tuition hard at work, people.
You heard it here first,
