Hey everyone! With the holiday season come around the corner and Thanksgiving today, this week’s blog topic is what are you thankful for. I think that we have so many privileges that many kids around the world don’t have access to that we sometimes overlook as something we should be thankful for. So, here are three things I am thankful for.
The first thing that I am thankful for is family. Of course family because they have been there for you since the day you were born. My mom always takes me anywhere and will help me reach where I want to be. My Dad will help reach things academically. My Grandparents will always support me in whatever like in media or dance. They will always love me and I am grateful to have them in my life
The second I am thankful for is friends. I feel like next to family, friends is the best things that you can have. In this media productions class I feel like I have made special bonds with people in the class last year and this new school year. We all have helped each other grow in media and as people. We all are good friends and they always make me laugh non stop when I am around them and I am so thankful to have people like them in my life.
The last thing that I am thankful for is getting the opportunity to learn about media. I am so thankful that I get to be in the advanced media class and that I have an amazing media teacher like Mr. Matsunaga to help me learn. I am also thankful that I get the opportunity to get to turn my ideas into reality through film. For example PSAs are a time where I get to choose a specific idea that I think is a problem in our society that I have experience and try to bring awareness. Also I feel thankful that I get to learn about photography. I love looking at photos that are beautifully shot and I always wanted to learn how they got these certain shots. Now that I am in media I know how to get different shots and what shots I need depending on what my focus is.
So that is what i am thankful for! I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! That is all for this week’s blog.
Hey everyone! This week’s blog topic is how is the year going. This year our class is smaller and we don’t have any six graders. We definitely have more work because there is less people. So here is my thoughts and how my school year is going so far.
First, is how I feel about this. I think that this is a bit of a challenge because we have more work than last year. There is more radios, more morning announcement scripts, and work. Since there is less students that means shorter rotations with radios and announcements. Radios are a bit more of a challenge because sometimes when you finish a radio you already have to start looking into the next one and start gathering information. With announcements, we had three teams last year but now we have two. Now that we announce, in between we will only have a one week break in between working and announcing. But, it has helped me with time management.
This year has it’s better times and it’s worse times but, it is definitely not the same. Some of the better times is that we are closer because our class is smaller. We can text or call each other when we have questions. I feel like we have a tighter bond because there is less people. But there is. Some of the worst times are when we have lots of deadlines stacked on each other. We could have projects, radios, or an extra project due really close together and that’s what we call crunch time.
I think one way that we can make it better is to time manage better. Especially me because there are times I think, “Why couldn’t I have planned this out better?”. Making sure we all have time for the things we have to do and we are all on the same page and no one gets left behind. I feel like when someone is not in the know they miss out on a lot. So keeping everyone informed is something we can all do.
In conclusion, even though this year is different we all can be successful we can work hard at it. So that’s all for this week.
