So, morning announcements is crazy. First of all, most of the time announcers are always late. So, we don't get their scripts till maybe 7:30 and that's not on time at all. Also, somebody new was doing the tiltler job and that's one of the hardest jobs in the morning announcements. So, we were going a little slow with titles and she wasn't to sure what to do. Also, friends are always coming into the rooms and distracting some people and then we waste time waiting for them to get out. Then Mr.Velasco's birthday landed on one of the days in our week, if you don't know who he is. He's a P.E teacher at our school that's going to retire. Anyways, I guess we decided to celebrate his birthday big. A few people were decorating behind the announcers for the longest time. They came in at 7:30 I think and stopped when we were going live which was about 7:53. They kept distracting the announcers and it was hard to cross fade with them in the cameras. I know they had good intentions, but I don't think they should've took that long. Another thing was that we had the first advisory game. Those things are so stressful because there's so much to them. Even though we did pretty good for the first game, it was so scary and stressful for us. We spent basically the whole time practicing it and we never practiced their regular script. As you can see we had a hard week, I think we went 1 day without having 1 mistake, but it was just the first week. I'm sure we will improve.
Next was fundraising. Now I haven't done fundraising in a few months and I now remember haw challenging it is. It's scary when you have to talk to people you don't talk to a lot. I had to suck it up though because I needed to get it done. After a few people I was like, "I got this". I'm doing pretty good though, I haven't got rejected yet, but there's still more to go.
Lastly, there's the 1st quarter Hiki no project. We basically started from scratch. We changed the whole focus on our story which meant we had to redo interviews and get more. Then we had to redo the 5 points and script. We changed the whole thing and it took a lot of work, but we got it done. Last week was probably the most stressful week ever because we had to finish it on Friday and we started on Tuesday.
Overall, media has been pretty challenging this first month, but I got through it and that's important. Now, I have the rest of the year to get through, hopefully it goes through fast. Thanks for reading! Bye!
