The Clog Blog

Today I got to go run an errand.  I guess you can say it was fun.  It was a little different than usual, so I appreciated the field trip.  To begin the story, I’ll say I showed up to my internship dressed up…with 3.5 inch clogs on, might I add (see photo below).  Then, I was sent on a wild goose chase to find a building that I had never heard of on UA’s campus.  (As a side note…since I’m on Capstone Men & Women, I am expected to know every single building on campus.  So, I do.  I had never heard of this building in my life.)  I shared this tidbit of information with the intern sending me on the errand, but she insisted the building was right beside Russell Hall.  After walking in my 3.5 inch clogs from Reese Phifer to Russell Hall and back, I decided to call WVUA to let them know that I had Googled the building and it was off campus, near DCH Regional Medical Center.  So, when I got back to the station, I then hopped into the intern’s car, and we completed the errand.  Whew!  Needless to say, I bought some blister Band-Aids on the way home this afternoon. cb

First blog…

Keep in mind that this is my first blog!  So please bear with me!  Over the period of the next few days, I will be updating my blog with homework assignments from TCF 332, a class I am taking this semester.  The homework consists of story ideas and my own personal thoughts and opinions about different articles I’ve been assigned to read.  The process of converting my written homework into blogs will take a few days, but it will be up soon!  Happy reading! cb

Tapes

Today, I helped Matt – a guy at the station – find some material on a tape.  I was sent to the editing bay and shown how to rewind and fast forward on the machines.  First time!  I then went through about 15 tapes looking for footage of rescue dogs after the tornado.  Working with the tapes made me wonder why everything hasn’t been converted to digital these days, but it was so much more entertaining than staring at the wall, waiting for the phone to ring!  Matt and I worked the same long shift last semester on Sundays, so I got to build a good relationship with him.  I was so thankful to get out of the newsroom for a little bit today! cb
