Also this week I ran camera one for the interview segment of "The County Line." I love running camera, what with wearing the headset and doing on-air zooms. It's probably my favorite technical job, although I also like doing sound and being in charge of the microphones. Anything where I get to press buttons and move sliders and check levels is okay with me.
Other than that, I just hope to get my commercial posted later this week.

I also made a resume this week, and went to the career center today to help me perfect it. Hopefully I'll be able to get it down to one page and make it look professional. More goals!

Last week, for our capstone, our whole class had to do Titan Traverse out in the woods to bond us together as a class. We had to do a number of activities, but they all involved working together as a team. For example, we played a game where one person was blindfolded, and their partner had to use words to tell them where to go and what to do. It's very difficult to be totally dependent on someone else. Another game we played was the spiderweb game, and that consisted of getting all 12 people in our class through some rope that had people sized holes tied into it, only we couldn't touch the rope, and many holes were high off the ground. So we had to discuss our strategy and trust each other in order to successfully complete this task. This is going to be an important part in our actual capstones as well, because as a broadcasting major, it is very hard to do everything by yourself. You have to ask other people for help, work out time schedules, trust that everyone will show up when they promised, and be willing to help others yourself. Many lessons were illustrated during Titan Traverse, and it made me feel much closer to the others in my class, so I am glad we were able to do such a valuable activity.
