Today I am grateful for…

  4. my first time coming in for my internship during the day. I got to meet more people who work at the KSBY station.
  5. my friend, Madison, interning at the same time as me. This is her second quarter, so she showed me the ropes. And it was nice to know someone my first time coming in during the day.
  6. the employees at KSBY who were so nice and welcoming to me.
  7. watching Dave Hovde do his live shot. Talk about a live shot master!

Gratitude Journal Days 46 & 47

I have to lump the past two days together because last night was the second night of my internship at KSBY. I worked overnight, so my days are kind of blurred.

Over the last two days, I have been grateful for (and there’s a lot)…

  1. working with the Mustang Daily newspaper staff. It’s not often that we get to work together, but I’d like to do it more often.
  2. getting new ideas about where I want to live next year. It’s already time to start thinking about it… yikes!
  3. discovering it’s Hunt for Happiness Week… and having the platform to promote it.
  4. a spontaneous drive to the beach. I’m so grateful I live just 15 minutes away from the ocean.
  5. my best friend, for taking the spontaneous ocean trip with me.
  6. eating clam chowder in a bread bowl just feet away from the water. There’s no experience like it.
  7. unexpectedly finding an inexpensive, cute, new blow dryer when I wasn’t even looking. Mine just broke and I needed a new one!
  8. getting to write many of the scripts in today’s Daybreak show on KSBY.
  9. Connie Tran. She let me go out in the field and interview with her and it was a blast.
  10. watching the Presidential Inauguration from the KSBY newsroom.
  11. having the courage to be honest and direct…even when it’s not so easy.
  12. the opportunity to meet Apple’s Steve Wozniak tonight and get an exclusive interview with him for Cal Poly TV. It was probably the coolest journalism experience I’ve had yet!

Gratitude Journal Day 43

Today I am grateful for…

  1. surviving my first Daybreak shift at KSBY.
  2. getting all of the interviews I needed for this week’s CPTV show. I was doubtful for a little while…
  3. the adorable dog running around the aerospace hanger building that I filmed a news story at today. I wanted to steal him.
  4. sweats and Uggs. After walking around all day in heels, I really appreciate comfy clothes.
  5. Starbucks on Cal Poly’s campus being open until midnight. The only thing keeping me awake to write this right now is the Chai Tea Latte I had around 10:00 p.m.
  6. my first CPTV all-nighter of the quarter. College just wouldn’t be the same if I got a full night of sleep. haha
  7. having the knowledge to help new CPTV students. It’s weird that I’m one of the people in the class with the most experience now!
  8. having Adobe Premiere on my laptop. It makes editing my news stories so much easier.

Today I am grateful for…

  1. finally getting to use my new curling iron. I’ve wanted to test it out for weeks and it turns out the barrel is the perfect size!

  4. seeing The Perks of Being a Wallflower for free! Thank you, Cal Poly! (so much free stuff today!)
