Sophie's diary: Week One

Over the summer, Sophie will be keeping a record of her thoughts and achievements as Gloucestershire's Blast reporter.

Sophie's profile page contains more information about her.

Week One

It feels like I've been working here for much longer than a week. I've had a really good couple of days and covered so many things. Earlier on in the week I went to a meeting about a local music project called Wired. It was really cool as I got to learn about the project and also had a two hour seminar about the music industry, which I'm kinda interested to work in.


I also interviewed a local photographer who's an acquaintance of mine. I wasn't too nervous as I already knew him and it was nice and informal. I found the interview really interesting and learnt loads about photography. I can already tell that after this project I'll want to try loads more new things, as I was surprised how interesting photography can be and I now want to take it up. I'm in the process of writing up the interview so you'll all have to come back and read it. I'm quite nervous about the final piece, but hopefully all will go well.

I had to do a health and safety quiz thing earlier in the week, it took two hours and got a bit tedious, but I must admit some of the video used in it was quite funny as it was so silly… oh well, it was better than having to do an eight hour quiz which they thought I may have to do!


Earlier today I sat through the midmorning radio show which was quite amusing as the presenter John Rockley was mad! I thought it all looked a bit confusing, but then again, it really doesn't take a lot to confuse me. I got to talk to lots of people and they gave me a good idea about the BBC.

Profile page

I've just written my profile page, it looks really pretty with all the pictures on it. I'm trying to make everyone go on it so I get lots of hits!

I'll stop rambling for now, check back next week for more about what I've been up to...
