For this week's given topic it will be about having goals. Having goals will always help you get better at doing things. Everyone has goals. Especially for me since this is my first year in the advanced media class. For me since I have never done blogs or big quarterly projects I think my goals would to be able to edit better, making sure all my blogs or projects are turned in when they are due, and lastly I want to help myself not get frustrated every time something doesn't work out.
Editing is a very big part of any video. If you do not videotape a good video you can always go back and look at the video again and edit anything bad you see. If I want to get better at editing I would do it by taking more of my time going back and editing. I would not just go back and fix the little stuff. I would go back and take a while to go back and make sure it is perfect. I would also look at it a couple times and then ask someone else if it sounds good. If someone else sees it they sometimes can see things that you did not see. Being able to edit should help everyone have better videos.
Making sure my blogs or projects are done on time for me since I'm new to the media class might be hard at first. The way I would accomplish that goal would be by doing my given topic blog the day I know what the topic is. If the topic takes a while to be posted I would just do my free topic one. Once the topic is posted I would do the given topic one right away. If one day I did not have that much homework I would just do both of my blogs right away so I would not have to worry about getting the blogs done later in the week. Also when I would write my blogs I would go back and reread to make sure my writing is able to be understood. I would go back to make sure I spelled everything correct, I would check all my grammar, and lastly would go back to check punctuation or capitalization. If I turned projects in late it is a big deal because a lot of the time that assignment is a big part of your grade. If you turn your project in late it could take your grade down a long ways. For me if I wanted to turn something in on time I would start working on it right when I got it. Then I would keep working on it hard till you know it is completed but really you can always make it better so when you get a project don't waste too much time thinking of ideas because you should have your ideas before you start.
My last goal would be to not worry about something that happens. Whenever I write something or make something and it doesn't work out I get frustrated. Sometimes when that happens I get very anxious. This year I will try to fix that by every time something does not work out and isn't correct I will just relax, get over it, and just try again. Every time something does not work out I should not worry about it because it will only make it worse. Sometimes even though I wrote a long and good paragraph I will try not to worry about it because it can only make me better.
In conclusion goals are really important. They will always keep you on track and will always make you better. If you are not that good at something you always set goals to keep you on track and make you accomplish them. Well thanks for stopping by and reading my blogs. Bye and have a nice day.
