Anika's State of the Union

Things have been nonstop since I got back to College Park! My down time has been filled with nothing but sleep, sleep and more sleep.

I started my internship with Capital News Service right when I got back. I’m a reporting intern with the Washington, D.C. bureau. The people with whom I intern are great, and the experience so far is a mix of excitement and pure terror. The whole reason for the title of the post is because I GET TO COVER THE PRESIDENT’S STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS TONIGHT!

Hopefully I’ll get to be rubbing elbows with some seriously experienced journalists and even a few politicians. I also read Emma Sulkowicz (the Columbia University mattress-carrying rape victim) will be in attendance.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to live tweet (UPDATE: I WILL BE LIVE TWEETING) because (if all goes to plan) I’ll be inside the House Chamber during the speech. However, make sure to follow my twitter (@anikareednews) for any updates I have throughout the day/night.
