Media is no walk in the park. It’s hard work and you have to earn your free time by finishing your work. I have had some trouble with interviews, argumentative essay, and trying to get the radios done.
The biggest obstacle in media is the interviews. I think interviews were a hard obstacle to go around because the two people we interviewed talked for over 3 minutes. One talked for at least 10 minute and the other one talked for at least 8 minutes. On top of that the third interview we did the mic. was turning off automatically, and Annie and I were worried that our interview was not going to be finished that day and we would have to come back. But luckily the person we were interviewing had spare batteries and it turned out that it just needed new batteries.
The second biggest obstacle I had to face is argumentative essay. This is a assignment that we do every week. This usually lasts us almost the whole period so that’s one less day we have to use every week. So it makes finishing the project harder than it already is. It’s a major set back but I come in after school to make it up.
Since our radios are due 3 weeks from now, my job is to look for the events that are happening the week we are on air whale Annie is doing the scripts for advisory games or working on the project. One problem is that I still need to learn how to make a script and because of the argumentative essay we are falling behind a little at a time.
So does this change the way you see media? Does media still seem easy to you? I know that it is hard for me. But it’s a good way to learn about time management.
