For this week's blog post I am writing about how my team for Kauai Grown is doing and our progress. Three things I will be sharing with you is what my team has done so far, what I will be doing this week to make some progress, and some obstacles that are getting in my way to getting things done. Here they are!
First of all, my team has started on figuring what type of pictures we want to show for our post. To explain, we're the Instagram team so we introduce this program, which means the responsibilities are pretty big. Like if we posted a wrong picture, than we could introduce the wrong idea of the program. Basically we are presenting an image that shows all the produce and famers markets on the island, so if we deciede to post a picture of a beach, it's not relative to what we want to show people. If any of that makes sense. Furthermore, when looking for pictures(which we're still doing,) we are trying to find some that present the program in a good way and grab the viewers eyes.
Secondly, what I will be doing this week to make some progress is helping come up with the captions to the photos. It may seem super easy, but it's hard to me because I normally explain things with a lot of words. But in these posts I have to sum it up in less than 5 sentences, which is hard for me. So it's nice having Carter with me to organize it all. I also enjoy making the captions because I like the fact that what you write something and someone will see, which leads to it maybe changing someones feelings, or way they look at things. It's different with these post though, because you have to be educational and logical.
Also, some obstacles that are getting in my way to getting things done is basically my dumb remarks in my head. What I mean, is like because we're doing this instead of normal projects I think I can kinda lay off. So this has been keeping me from doing a lot of work. But I'm going to change this, because I want to do good and get a good grade. I think it's normal to think these things, but it's still not good. Like last year, I had a lot of stress to finish filming, but this year I don't feel the urge to reach so far.
To conclude, these our three things that are happening right now in my process system to getting a good grade and introducing this program. All the negatives I will try to fix, and all the positives I will keep on doing. Media definitely puts a lot of things on your chest, and this is a huge one. Hopefully I can finish it strong! BYE!!!
Hey buddies...that sounded weird. Hey everyone, so I hoped you were looking at my STN Blogs page because this week I’m talking about my top three moments/ learnings from the STN trip. There are so many amazing things that happened, that I want to share with you guys. But, first of all I’m lazy and second of all I want you guys to not be overwhelmed. So let’s get right into it. My top three moments/ learnings are getting over my fear of roller coasters, going to the famous Disney Animation Studios, and learning about being proud of my work no matter what or where it places in.
First of all, I got over my fear of rollercoasters. I know what your thinking. She’s 13 and is afraid of roller coasters? Well yes, yes I was. Just the ones with the big drops and upside downs. But on this trip, I went on as much as I can. Except for one and it was California scream. In the beginning I did not want to go on it like at all, but then it started looking like a lot of fun so I wanted to go on it. But two times, the ride was closed so that must've been a sign. I also went on a ride called Splash Mountain and it was so much fun. And there was one ride, where we were all in the raft and it was spinning around and around. There was also super fun drops! It was probably one of my favorite rides.
Secondly, I absolutely loved going to Disney Animation Studios for a tour. I SAW JOSH GAD!!!! That was probably my favorite part, even though the tour was really good. We got to see how the disney movies include so much concentration and jobs. To explain, it takes more than 700 people just to make one movie. That’s a lot of people to keep track of, especially when it comes down to who makes the deadlines and stuff. Also, animation probably takes most of that amount of people because of how much frames that have to be made.
Lastly, I learned about being proud of my work no matter what or where it places in. To explain, I realized that the only important thing is being proud of your work. And of course it feels awesome to win a medal or a trophy, but when you finish something and you're proud of it, there’s no beating that feeling. After I came back from the trip I watched my anchoring video, and I didn’t think of what place we scored it in, only how awesome we felt turning it in. That was probably one of the biggest lessons I learned on this trip.
In conclusion, this trip had many highlights and moments that stuck out to me. But these three really got into my head. I am so blessed to have all these memories with my class and all my friends in it. It would not be the same if just one person wasn't there. So this wraps up this week's blog, if you would like to read about what I did over the trip, go visit my STN Blogs page. BYE!!!
