First, why did I join media? I actually think I covered this subject a couple months ago in a free blog, so I guess I'll cover it again. I joined media in 6th grade just because my mom recommended it. I had no idea why she did, she just did one day. So I took it. When I joined, I had very little interest toward media in general, but that changed over the years. I made friends in media, and I got to make 2 videos that I wanted to. But over the years, I have found media very interesting. Up to the point that I want to pursue it as a career. I'm not the best at filming, or transcribing, or script making, but what I really enjoy is editing, so that is what I want to pursue in life as a career. I understand that what we edit now is nothing close to what I'll be editing if I get the job, but I enjoy it, so I want to see where I go with it.
Next, whey did I stay in media? Well, like I said, I grew a passion for it. That is one of the main reasons why. But also because of what we do in media, I am not that big of a fan with having to make two news story a year, since that doesn't interest me, but I do find it fun to make short videos that I want to make, where I can use my creativity. that's why I like 3rd and 4th quarter. But also because of the people in media. I've made friends over the past two years, and yes, some of them did leave, but this year, I have made more friends. Friends that if it wasn't for media, I would have never even met them. And of course, our equipment. Equipment isn't the only reason I joined, but it is awesome to be using top of the line stuff that cost so much money.
Lastly, what will I be doing after middle school? After middle school, when we all move up to high school, I will still hope to continue media, but not all 4 years. My plan is to take media the first two years in high school to get everything I need to learn down, and then the last two years, I know how much more work I will be getting, so I feel that with all the work and media on top of it, I will be overwhelmed in work. But I do hope to take classes in media is college and eventually get a job in editing.
In conclusion, that is why I joined media, stayed it media, and what I will be doing in the years to come. I am looking forward to reading your guy's blogs to see what you said. But anyways, see you guys later!
