Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well!! I was talking to Andrea and Andrew on Tuesday, and they said how I should document one day in my life and make a blog post about it, so that’s what I did. Throughout the day Tuesday I took notes, took pictures and well… here we are.
I get to work at a different time every day, it depends on when I set up my interviews and all of that, but on Tuesday, I got to work at 10:30 in the morning, clearly just out of the shower.
I have a great set up figured out for how I conduct my online interviews.
Even though I can do all my interviews over the internet, I still have to go out and get B-Roll!
My boss told me to wash one of the KMVT cars while I was out, which is one of my favorite things to do.
Lately, I’ve been craving chicken all the time, so after the car wash, I headed to get Chic-Fil-A before I start editing.
After I ate my food, I started editing. Editing can be very tedious, but somedays it pays off. On this day, I loved my stories. It took me about 3 hours to finish all my editing, but it was worth it. Everyone has a different editing rhythm, but I have found one that works for me.
After I lay down my voice and finish all my B-Roll, I have to export!
After I finish all my editing and writing and exporting, I have to start my web stories.
The station has been weird lately, many people are working from home, and all the stories have been related to the virus in some way or another, but we are doing our best!
After my web stories are written, I have to wait until the show is over to clip my videos, so they will be on the website.
It was around 7 o’clock when I finished all my work and went home to see… my pup pup Jackson.
I made my dinner, which was just leftovers and sat down at my table by myself to eat it while I watch some Netflix. My nightly routine.
Now, this was just my Tuesday, and the thing is that I never really know how my day is going to go when I get to work. There are so many unknowns. A few weeks ago we had an earthquake 8 minutes before the 6 p.m. newscast and had to change our shows. One night, there was a house fire at 8 p.m, so it’s random and you just never know what your day will hold.
Then I got ready for bed, took Jackson out to go to the bathroom once more, and went to sleep.
What. A. Day.
