My internship starts tomorrow. And yes, this is after 2 months working at a pet accessory store, but I’m back on the journalism wagon. More about chihuahua tutus later..
Finally got an email from the BBC Trainee Scheme. It was a rejection, but at least I made it to nearly the end of November—from what I saw on Twitter, people started getting rejection emails from mid-October.
*Sigh* well, upwards and onwards. Onto the CBC London internship in 13 days!
I woke up this morning vomiting, in pain and ready to go to work at CTV. Whether I was struck by nerves or food poisoning is still to be determined.
An expected 6-hour trip back to Vancouver from Grand Forks ended up taking around 9 hours and I was doing my best the whole day not to lose my stomach in the car. It may have been the terrible eating schedule and poor food choices I made in Grand Forks, but I was clearly overwhelmed in anticipation of my documentary airing on The Current today.
You can listen to it here.
The Current on CBC Radio One isn’t just another program for me. It’s measuring stick of poignant, in-depth and challenging reporting. So, two months ago when a CBC contact got me in touch with producers from The Current, I was absolutely thrilled**. I remember calling my Baba Savinkoff to tell her that I couldn’t believe I was actually walking to the bus stop with CBC recording equipment. It was a dream come true.
