Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been uploading my blogs. It's just been a crazy trip and then I got sick. Then I forgot about my blogs and now I'm in this crazy blog mess. Anyways, I'll get right into it now. So, today 3 more teams competed. Movie trailer, Anchor team, and PSA. We all turned our things in on time! My team is Movie trailer and I think we did pretty good. Our idea wasn't the strongest, but we made it work. We had a rough start in the beginning with the idea. Also, we turned it in a little early. After that we had to go to another breakout session, but it was our last one which I was so happy about. :) After that, we went up to our rooms to get ready for the Atlanta Hawks basketball game and to cheer on the PSA team. After that we started our walk to the basketball game which was pretty fun. I ate flatbread pizza and my Dad ate a burger of course. He's been eating burgers like crazy on this trip. Anyways, we headed back to the hotel, had our little debrief and went to bed, :).
Hello everybody! So today is our 3rd day at STN! Three teams competed today, music video, spot feature, nat sound. They all met the deadline which was great! Anyways, I was not competing, so I had to go to these things called break out sessions. If I had to be honest it was pretty boring, but I managed to stay throughout the whole thing and get all 5 sessions over with. I was sometimes falling asleep in them too, but Taylor was there with and we woke each other up if we fell asleep. Overall, I learned many quick tips that I have in my notes. :) Also, after all the teams were done and all the break out sessions were done we did this thing called the middle school mixer. Basically what happened was, we got ice cream. Then we got into groups and it was split up by grade level. Only one person from your school should be there, but there was only 2 6th grade tables, so we ended up sitting with at least 3 people we knew. They basically gave us 3 little sheets of paper giving us different video types. They also gave us the username and password to there Instagram and we filmed it and posted it. It was kind of a fail with our group and crazy. Yeah, it just wasn't as fun as I thought. For dinner, we ate at CNN. It was pretty good actually. While we were there, there was a huge TV with the Donald Trump thing and it was really crazy, I'm not sure how there are so much people there then. Anyways, then we went to the Excellence Awards. It was pretty fun, but I was really tired. It's been hard to get some sleep on this trip, sadly. :( Well, that's pretty much my day. BYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey guys! So, as you can see by the title, we're at STN! This little blog paragraph will be about the plane rides and getting to Atlanta from Kauai. Let me tell you about something I thought was surprising. I actually slept a lot on all of the plane rides! The 3 plane rides were, Lihue to LA, LA to Houston, and Houston to Atlanta. The best flight was the Houston to Atlanta because it was one of the newest United planes. My grandma is a flight attendant for United, so I know my travel facts and United Airlines facts. ;) Anyways, let me tell you about something that didn't go as planned, but was fun anyways. So, on the LA to Houston flight, we were sitting in the plane for about 3 hours because there was bad weather in Houston and couldn't take the normal route. So, a lot was happening at that time, but us kids didn't really mind it at all because as I was saying, the plane we were on was one of the new ones. It had free movies, TV shows, games, and a map of where we were in the sky. :) The ending flight was ok, but the most exciting part was when lightning flashed. It was scary, but fun. When we got to the hotel it was a hard getting us rooms because we didn't get there as early as we wanted because our flight go delayed. When we were finally settled we ate pizza for dinner! Can't wait for tomorrow. :0 :)
Hey people of the world! So, today I woke up at 5:40am. Besides that, we had our crazy 8s competition! I was on the broadcast team. My group consisted of Kai, Nicole, and I. It was a long trip to find a story. First we went to this place called Georgia Power and they basically find ways to get power without polluting the air as much. When we arrived there it took a little while to get a response if we could get a story. It turns out it was like a government. It was very private and they said it would be hard to get someone in our time frame. So, we just ending up going to the hotel and interview some kids because we were thinking of some places, but they were really far away. We ending up turning in both teams flash drives on time!! When we were done we ate dinner with our pen pals which was really fun! Then after that we went to the opening ceremony! Anyways, that was pretty much my day!
