Homerun

This weekend I decided to have my own little winter break before finals week starts so I went home to visit for a few days. It was fun just to relax and get a couple last minute assignments done. This morning I woke up early and drove back to Butler. Needless to say it was a fun ride considering there were no cars on the highway and I was singing songs on my iPod at the top of my lungs!

This week I only have two finals so I am looking forward to finally being done with the semester. I just have one more assignment to do today and then I’ll be able to relax! I am more excited for next semester and all the new classes I’ll be taking! The class that sounds the most interesting and different is my web design class. I’m really looking forward to it and hoping I can learn a lot of new things about web journalism!

I can also say I am officially done with my Converged Journalism Project! It took a whole semester to complete and I am really proud of it! I had so much fun filming interviews and shots, writing stories, and editing my video to put the whole thing together. My topic was education reform and Indianapolis Public Schools. Trust me, it’s more interesting than it initially sounds! It’s full of action and conflict!

Here’s the final video I made for the project

Back to Work

Fall break is officially over and went by so fast! I had a great time visiting my friends in Chicago. We all got to catch up and even go shopping! I also got to spend some quality time with my family. My favorite part of break was definitely watching movies with my family.

But now that break is over, I have to get back to doing work! In my Converged Journalism course, I have to schedule interviews and talk to Indianapolis Public Schools officials about issues facing the schools. It is a very fun assignment that allows me to meet new and important people like the superintendent of IPS and the state schools superintendent.

Though these things are very important, I would say the most important thing that transpired this past week was my watching of the Kim Kardashian wedding. For those who don’t know Kim, let’s just say she is America’s response to Kate Middleton. Though I like Kim, I was disappointed in the special. The wedding special was a two night/two hour event but the actual wedding ceremony was only 8 minutes! But, it was still worth watching all the drama that ensued.

This is the preview for the upcoming season of the newest Kardashian show.
