This 2nd quarter I really need to step up my game. I did really good in all my other classes, but in media I really need to get on top of my work. This quarter I need to stop procrastinating, try to study for tests more often, and sleep earlier.
I procrastinate in every class and I think it's time to stop. Whenever I get homework, I always wait till the last minute to start it. Most of the time I start doing homework for the weekend on Sundays. This forces me to rush and not take my time. Then, the quality, in my eyes, is really poor for me. Even for my blogs. I always wait till Sunday. I even have to make up blogs like this one right now.
I have to at least try to study for tests more often. Most of the tests I've had, I just winged it. I didn't even study at all. Now, I know the tests are going to become more and more difficult. I can't make this a bad habit where I never study for tests. That's just going to carry on when I get older, and the next thing you know I fail a test. That's why I need to start making studying a habit.
I need to sleep earlier when I know the next day is a school day. Sometimes I only sleep 6-7 hours a night, so when it comes morning time, I can barely function when I get to school. I've almost dozed off about a total of 10 times by now at school. I've had to put cold water on my face to keep me awake, and sometimes that doesn't work.
This second quarter I really need to get on top of my work. I need to stop procrastinating, try to study for tests more often, and sleep earlier. I know all of these things are very important, but I just never get around to doing them. Well that's it for this blog. See you in the next one. Bye!
Wow! This 1st quarter has gone by really fast and has been one heck of a ride! Getting used to middle school was pretty challenging the first few days, but after that it all just felt like we 6th graders belonged there. As a newbie in media, it was really confusing working with equipment you've never worked with before. Some of my classes were pretty challenging and confusing. They really pushed us to our limits.
Getting used to middle school was pretty challenging. We had to get accustomed to all new rules and people around us. I had been abiding by the same rules for a little over 6 years and changing almost all of those got me really confused. The first day of all the grades being together was really intimidating to me. I kind of got used to being one of the older kids in elementary school. Then I got surrounded by all these people 2-3 years older than me and it was very scary.
It was really confusing working with equipment I've never worked with before. For example, when I first got to use one of the 60D's I didn't know what most of the buttons on the camera did. I only knew the button to turn on the camera and how to record. With the help of the returnees though, I found out a lot more about what most of them did and how to change some of the settings on the camera to make the image look better.
Some of my classes were really challenging and confusing. For example, math is really confusing since there are so many ways you can solve a problem. For media, we had to call schools and people like the mayor's secretary. I was really scared when I had to call the mayor's secretary to schedule an interview. I'm just really awkward when talking to people I don't rally know too well.
Well that's it for this blog. I hope you enjoyed this blog.

There have been some challenges for this personal profile project. I feel like our group is really behind on schedule. We still need to shoot a little more for the interview, get all of the b-roll, and edit. To do that we need to schedule appointments with our partner, Natalie, so that we can get the b-roll.
We are way behind on schedule. We still need to shoot the interview, get all of the b-roll, and edit. That is a lot of work to do in such a short amount of time. We only have 2 weeks till it's due. Once we get all the filming done, we would still need to edit all the footage and put it all together to make the deadline.
To accomplish this goal of making the deadline, we need to schedule appointments with our partner, Natalie, to get b-roll. We would need to go to the pool so we can film her swimming. We also need to film her grandmother making spaghetti and the finished spaghetti. We need pictures or videos of her from the time she went to Disneyland and rode the tower of terror.
Well that's where we are with our project, what we need to do, and plan to do. We really need to catch up, but we can still make the deadline for our video. That's it for this blog. Hope to see you in the next one. Bye!
