A[nother] day of firsts

As a newbie, I was so star struck: seeing a lot of senators, feeling the pressure of being in an actual beat, and mingling with other reporters. I was on a high. Of course, the pressure and anxiety were there, but I tried hard not to let people look down on me.

Anyway, I can’t help but take a couple of photos from the Senate.

I’m really on a high right now, although I feel so tired and I feel like I’m about to get sick. It’s the weather, ack.

Here are my stories for today:

(UPDATE) War imminent if MILF land deal is signed–critics

(UPDATE) Senators want Esperon sacked

Senate concurrence of JPEPA ‘virtually assured’

Piñol brothers decry military ‘neglect’ of North Cotabato

Foreign media condemn broadcaster’s shooting
