This week is Thanksgiving, which is a time of recognizing great joys and blessings we had in our lives, and in this blog, I want to share what I am thankful for.
The first thing I am thankful for is my parents, because they always support me when I feel down. my family is always there for me and always forgiving about whenever I get in trouble.
Another thing I am thankful for is school and the amazing teachers that make learning awesome. School is very fun for me, so I cherish school, and the teachers that make it fun but other students may think it isn't fun.
I’m also thankful for eating food and drinking water everyday. Without food or water we will die. We should be thankful for all that we have because some kids have nothing.
In conclusion, Thanksgiving is a great time to be thankful for all that you have, and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
My media class have been in school for more than a quarter and I've had some time to think about how things are going. So far it has been busy with the lack of people and also challenging to adapt through tough situations. And lastly, how we can all improve.
Compared to last year, there are no 6th graders and there are way less students. I feel like there is a lot more work to be done but however, I don't have a year of media to compare this year to. I think it would be useful because we are all so busy with all of our work and 6th graders could be great helpers.
Some of the challenges are adapting to the radios and being a part of a team and not taking things as a joke and actually look at problems seriously. I can't compare this to last year because I wasn't in the advanced class last year because this is my first year in media.
One thing we can all do better is understanding when we need help and actually help if answer is known. I think this year of media is really busy and hardworking especially on the morning announcements, Some days.
In conclusion, media is a fun rollercoaster ride, but in actuality, there is a lot of stress, sorrow, work, long nights, more work, and the list goes on and on. Overall, there has been lots of learning from our mistakes, and trying our hardest to fulfill what has to be done.
This year is has been hard and we are not even 1 quarter into the year! In my opinion, there has been a WORK OVERLOAD!!! The only "work" I enjoy is transcriptions which you might find a shocker because most people think transriptions are boring. Here are some of my toughest challenges from the begining of the school year.
First of all, Inside scoops have been a challenge because we have to call schools and get information, then write scripts and then record ourselves saying the scripts and if we have a mistake, we have to repeat the process and it takes a lot of time out of our projects.
Second, making morning announcements scripts have been tough because of the work overload and I haven't been able to find any time for everything. I try to finish the things that are priority first and then move on to the second important assignments.
Lastly, Getting to the library for morning announcements has been challenging because there are not many people to fill in for the people that are late. Most of the time, I am on time, but sometimes I come about 2-3 minutes late because my bus comes to my bus stop at around 6:30 AM and I don't get to school at about 7:10 AM.
Even though there has been a lot of work, my team and I can try our best and we will get our work done. This year will be filled with even more challenges to come our way but with hard work we can achieve anything!
For this new year in advanced media, I hope to accomplish some goals to make me a better student in regular school and in the busy thrill of Advanced Media. With a new year for new improvements to make, there are new opportunities for better change to be not only a better student, but also a better person.
One goal I have for this year is to finish everything on time. That means no procrastination. Not procrastinating is very hard because I often put work to the side because I have to finish other things like chores. Overall, media is very important.
Another goal I have is to work hard with my team and get along with them. This is important for a successful year in media because without successful partners, our videos would look less professional.
My last goal is to not be late to any of my classes, working snack shop, and any of my media meets. Before I got into the advanced media class, I was pretty late to any occasions that I have to go to. Now that I'm In media, I have to be either early or on time to any plans I have whether it is media or life.
Goals are really Important for this year in media, and also regular life. Goals are a good thing to keep running throughout your life because If you don't have goals in life you wont progress as a student or a person.
