Hey everyone! This week’s blog topic is toughest challenges this year. If you didn’t know our class has decreased this year in size so there is definitely a change in things we need to do. So, here are some of the new challenges that this year brings.
For me this year the hardest thing is time management. Since we have a smaller class that means smaller teams and rotations. Which includes smaller morning announcement teams and shorter radio rotations. So that means very packed deadline weeks with multiple deadlines. But, this is a good life lesson. Time management will be very helpful in the future.
The work this year is definitely more for sure. Just like I said in the paragraph before there are weeks where there is a lot of work and deadlines to finish and meet. Inside scoops, morning announcements, quarterly projects, and other side projects are all things we need to work on with shorter deadlines. Partner work has helped a lot because I can split work with someone and we can nail it down quicker.
I am in a partner group with Keith and in my opinion it is easier. It is easier with communication and how we split up work. We know what we are going to do because we communicate and we can split up work and nail it down fast because we know what we are going to do. We can help each other with work because we are both returnees and sometimes he knows stuff I don’t know and I can help him with stuff he doesn’t know, so it works.
So that is all for this week. I know this is going to be a tough year but it will be a great learning experience. I am so excited for this year!
Hey everyone! We are starting the weekly blogs posts. This week’s blog topic is New Year, New Goals. I have learned so much throughout my first year in media and ready to expand my knowledge in media in this second year. So, here is my goals for this 2017-2018 school year.
My first goal is to get better with deadlines. Ah deadlines, feared deadlines. I must admit one of the scariest part of this media class is deadlines. Sometimes last year deadlines were missed, so that is why I want to work on them this year. My initial goal this year is to make all the deadlines or Turn things in before the deadlines to try and get rid of some of my stress.
My next goal is to become very observant when it comes to editing videos. Sometimes when you watch the the video your editing over and over again mistakes become less noticeable. If you edit you might know what I mean. Taking short breaks when editing might help or getting a second opinion too. But, when looking back at my video I want to look out for numerous types of mistakes like jump cuts, sound level differences, and the list goes on.
My last goal is to become better at communication with people. So this goal means I want to become better speaking to other people which could be for stories or inside scoops. Both of these require talking to many people and making your voice and what you want to get across clear. This is also a very important life skill.
So this is three of the many goals I have for this year. I am very excited for everything that will come my way this year. So that is all for this week, have a great day!
