Today was supposed to be the day I got my first byline. But the force just wasn’t with me. The first problem came when I got to the event and realized that what I thought was going to be something about preparing for retirement was actually a group advocating the Social Security system. So my original story was blown out of the water.
I spent the rest of my afternoon trying to get in touch with Senators and retirement experts. No one called me back. (Big surprise there.) I finally just called it quits around four and started getting ready for another story tomorrow. There are a couple of events happening later in the month in conjunction with Social Security and retirement. I’ll keep an eye on them and maybe the legwork I did today will come in handy.
I’m taking another stab at a story tomorrow. I have a House Committee meeting tomorrow morning about making broadband cover the nation. We’ll see how this one goes.
