I'm on the commission and general assignment beat for the city desk at The Alligator, and adjusting to the task has been interesting.
I'm currently at a Community Redevelopment Agency meeting, trying to understand the jargon, identify the people and disseminate the information.
Perhaps more challenging than that was actually getting here. For some reason, I had it set in my mind that City Hall was actually across the road, so I spent a bulk of time circling the block, then eventually parking and wandering in my heels, tripping over my trousers and heaving my laptop. For a little girl, no small task.
Hopefully, now that I'm in the press room, connected to internet, and at least looking the part, things will be a little seamless.
If not, I'll still figure it out. :)
