Week 6 Washebek

Kat and her daughter, Alexis, with her cat in their apartment.

I just got back to school after spring break.  Kat and I tried to get together twice over break.  One day it was snowing, and the next day I was sick.  This past Saturday morning, I packed up my recording equipment and set my GPS to get to Kat’s apartment in Appleton.  I knew I couldn’t come back to class without an interview, or Grace would not have been happy.  After I got lost a few times, I finally made it to Kat’s place.  Her children were both in their bedrooms, but they would come out from time to time and stand in the hallway until Kat asked them what they needed.  After untangling the cords for the recording equipment and setting up a little studio in her apartment, we ended up getting a lot of good information recorded in a little under two hours. Alexis agreed to take a picture, but she said the cat had to be in it, too.  I really like this picture, because it sums up my visit with Kat at her apartment.  I’ve never went to someone’s house before to interview them, but for this project, it was appropriate.  I’m really getting to know Kat well, and that will help me to write a more accurate article to honor her life and her time as a Navy veteran.
