    Final Project

    We have come to the end, my friends. Now I swear something always has to happen to where I can not finish my assignments in time. After a few days of working on the final, I was doing some finishing touches, and my sister called me. She had severe dehydration and needed to go to the hospital. I went into a different kind of speed, and rushed to bring her. She got hooked up to I.V.’s, and after 4 hours, I finally was able to finish up my project. After a few more editing hours, it is safe to say that I have completed my final project. So, for one…

    Weekly Summary 4/12/19

    Well….. after two weeks of constant struggles I have finally completed MY MISSION! Here I am on Tuesday writing my weekly summary after cracking down and fighting my procrastination. For those interested in my laptop update, here it is. I dropped off my laptop on Thursday, with the estimated time I would be getting it back this Wednesday. Safe to say, this would’ve created another hell week. However, it was ready to be picked up on Saturday. I spent the past couple of days grinding all my homework out, so that for once I can enjoy my free time. I think my laptop should be all good! If not, and…

    Weekly Summary 4/5/19

    After last weeks brutal setback, I decided to get my work done as soon as possible. As I was working through, I realized my laptop was not up to the standards I was hoping it would be after the repair. Once I received my laptop on Friday (dropped it off on Tuesday), I got it back with all of my content on it. This is due to their initial claims of it being the motherboard being false. It was simply the display, but that still did not cut down the cost. I realized that my laptop was still messing up. When inserting a video from my webcam into iMovie, my…

    Weekly Summary 3/29/19

    I have NEVER been so excited to be writing a weekly summary. This week was honestly hell for me. I originally intended to grind all of my work out for this week so that I could enjoy my birthday on Sunday. I told myself to get over the procrastination and get started. Fate was not on my side though. I started on Monday, and after a few hours put my laptop in my backpack and when I pulled it back out….. NOTHING. The screen was completely black. I had quite a panic attack and put it away after fiddling with it for an hour. When I say fiddling I mean…

    Weekly Summary 3/21/19

    This week was very interesting; I like how we were introduced to new software, ad-ons, and had new twists on old assignments. This week I got a majority of my work done in the waiting room while my grandmother was at the doctors. I got a majority of everything done in the hour to hour and a half I was there. Like I have said before, I am not sure if I am finally getting the hang of this class, or if the work load is becoming easier. It used to take me around eight hours to complete the work, now it takes me around 3 hours to complete the…

    Weekly Summary 3/17/19

    This week was honestly quite simple. I prefer to have one large thing to do, rather than a bunch of small things. The radio show allowed me to solely focus on one thing and not have to stress about getting quite a few assignments done, like we normally have for the class. I think this week was a great way to come back after break! First, I wrote about my progress with my radio show for this week. This was a super easy task, and the words were just flowing out of me. My group has been absolutely amazing and I hope to work with them many times this semester.…

    Weekly Summary 3/1/19

    I feel like every week gets easier and easier, but it also takes more and more of me to complete it. This week offered a great opportunity to catch up overall and eliminate some stress. I, however, was not able to do a majority of the assignments until today, which didn’t prove to be a problem as I am completing this hours early. I did not rush through any of the assignments, and I can not tell if the course load is getting easier or if I am starting to learn the basics for this class that made it hard in the beginning. I can safely say that audio is…

    Weekly Summary 2/22/19

    This week, on the syllabus proved to be the least complicated, but was the hardest week yet for me. I pride myself on my time management, but that all went down the drain this week. I helped my boyfriend move from Monday to Wednesday, so this gave me two days to get all of my work done, while also having other assignments due for other classes. This meant that I had to get on my phone and complete assignments in the car, stress cry in between boxes, and flooding the new house with my tears. But after two days of constant work and Cherry Cokes, here I am to say…

    Weekly Summary 2/15/18

    This week was the hardest week by far. I usually am able to get a majority of my work done in the beginning of the week, so I never feel stressed. However, this week I was training for a new job and barely had the time to do any of the work for my classes. I also know nothing about audio and how to edit it, so this created a new challenge as I also had to learn how to do everything for this week. This created a crazy amount of stress for me throughout the week. Overall, I was able to get everything done before the due date, so…

    Weekly Summary 2/8/19

    This week was fairly quite simple. I really enjoyed focusing on one medium for digital storytelling. The first couple of weeks there were a fair amount of assignments, but each week seems to become easier. I’m sure this is because slowly, I am getting the hang of this course and how it works. I originally thought I would like this class, but not to the extent that I have been. I thought this would offer learning, but with more enjoyable aspects. This course is the only class I am enrolled in that I actually enjoy the work for. I don’t mind doing work all week, because it allows me to…
