Hi! For this week’s blog, we have to talk about how what we learned in media has affected other places in our lives. Some of the things I’ve learned is that you get out what you put in, procrastination is a deadly killer, and you can’t win them all. Now let’s get right into this blog. So my first lesson I thought of is that you get out what you put in. If you put in minimal effort to get something done, it's obviously not going to turn out very well. The opposite goes for if you actually put lots of time and hard work into making a video. You have to work hard through the whole process because if you only work well in the pre-production and filming, but don't try in the editing, it can still turn out bad. You have to work hard the whole way through.
My second lesson is that procrastination is a deadly killer. Everybody procrastinates. Even if we know we're procrastinating, we still do it anyways. I know that for a fact because I've done that countless times everywhere. But I still do it anyway. If you have the chance to procrastinate, don’t. You'll just be sabotaging yourself.
My third lesson is that you can't win them all. If you try really hard on a video, there can still be a small chance it doesn't do well. Like STN. You practice countless times, putting in lots of time to hone your skills, but during competition, that's where you put everything on the line. You can't always get a story. You can't always have a great story to work with, but you have to work with what you have. Even if you put in 100% and try your dang hardest, you can't always have an award winning video. Even though it may suck, that's just how life is.
Well that was my blog about the lessons I’ve learned in media that affect other places of my life. My lessons were that you get out what you put in, procrastination is a deadly killer, and you can’t win them all. Well I'll see you in the next blog. Toodle oo!
