Unpublished mementos from my journal–November 8

This is a part of my unpublished mementos of my experience as a neophyte of dyAB 1512.
These experiences actually made me learn for once more the ropes.
November 8, 2010
I was assigned to the Capitol and the courts. I never knew what to do there. I was a newbie (as I always am) and I was blind to the goings-on at the area.
I spent the time going around the courts and trying to see what hearings I could attend. I saw no reporters roaming around the courts.
Seeing that I was just wasting my time, I decided to look around the Capitol. Good thing I was able to see where the Governor’s Office is located.
After seeing where the governor’s office is located, I immediately went to the Legislative Building. I realized how new I really appeared as an apprentice wanting to enter the media. I had to ask people where I could get the agenda for the session of the Provincial Board.
Good thing a reporter at dyAB, RC Dalaguit went there. It was only from her I realized that the Vice-Governor would give a privilege speech. I had to record something in order to be able to make a report. Good thing one of the reporters there lent me a copy of the transcript of the speech.
It was really a controversial speech as it made headlines the following day.
One realization: You really have to learn the ropes yourself. If I did not do it myself, I could have not gotten anything for that day.
RC and I already divided the points on which to report. I was about to write my script when I realized that I had to rush back to the university to attend my MC Seminar class.
While waiting for the teacher, I worked on my script. The bad thing about it was I was not able to file my report as the program aired is already TV Patrol Central Visayas.
From there, I gained knowledge on the workings of the Provincial Board. Perhaps one thing I want to try covering is the Monday press conference of the Governor.
