Dinner with Kristen

So all of us bloggers had our last dinner with our boss Kristen who accepted a position at a new place so I’m excited for her but sad that she’s leaving. I remember getting my first email from her about being a blogger my freshman year and loving her ever since. Kristen is seriously one of the nicest people in the world and I’m going to miss her so much!

She took us all out to eat at Three Wise Men in Broad Ripple and it was delicious! Besides getting wings for an appetizer, I also got chips and a huge Chicken Parm sandwich. Needless to say I have a lot left over and will probably be eating it for the next couple of days. It was such a great way to say goodbye but I’m sure she’ll always be around so we can see her! She also gave us these great parting gifts that included Target giftcards, sticky notes, and tons of candy!

Thanks, Kristen!

All of us with Kristen!

Product Placement

So I have to turn in two of my video projects I’ve been working on this year. One is a project I have been working on all semester about Education Reform in Indianapolis that I’ll post later when it is officially finished! That one was really fun to do for my Converged Journalism class because I had to go out and film interviews and try to get footage to cover the whole story. For that class, we also have to post our final video and project to an online blog.

For Media Literacy, me and two other people in a group had to make a Public Service announcement. For this, we decided to make a PSA raising awareness of product placement. Me and Jordan, one of my partners and the person who edited the video, are terrible actors but it is still funny to watch! Our other partner Rotnei did the voice over at the end of the video.

After this semester, I’ve had to make various video and multimedia assignments for classes and I’ve actually come to learn that I enjoy doing film. Maybe I’ll even have a career where I’ll have to do it in the future! I’m glad I learned how to do multimedia work now while I’m young instead of having to learn it in the future when things change and become more confusing!

Almost Winter Break!

I only have one final this week and it is on Tuesday so as soon as it’s over, I’m going home! I’m so excited that winter break is almost here. When I come back from break it will be Rush Week so hopefully that will be just as fun as break.

On Friday all of the bloggers got together at our advisor Kristen’s house to have a Christmas gathering. It was fun getting to know the fellow bloggers and playing games and eating food outside of the dining halls. We all rode in the same car to her house and since there was traffic, it was a long and entertaining car ride.
