Hi, I’m back for more blogs. This is my first blog this school year. Since it is the first blog, the blog topic is on what our goals are for the school year. I have many goals this year, but there are only three that I felt were the most important. Knowing myself, I’m probably not gonna make all of my goals, but hopefully I do. My goals, are to meet all my deadlines, not procrastinate as you probably expected, and to take all the media opportunities I can this year.
First of all is deadlines. From what I know, I made all the deadlines I had so far this year. Some were really close to not making it, and I’ll try to not make it a habit and instead turn in my work early. As you can already see, as I am writing this blog, it is Saturday and Sunday starts in 8 hours. Deadlines are something I didn’t do so well too, I only missed a couple, and most deadlines barely made it. For our Hiki No story, I’ve been making my own deadlines for our group so that we have time to keep looking over our video to find little mistakes. This sort of worked out, but then things changed so we weren’t able to make as I wanted to, but it’s okay.
Next, is to not procrastinate. Procrastinating is something I always do, I started this blog on Monday, but didn’t finish it till today. Also, lately I’ve been working on homework, media work, and band work. Although sometimes I’ve been staying up later, the main part is I’m still getting work done efficiently. I want to keep this up and stay away from pushing things back a lot. Hopefully after all this beginning of the year work, and everything settles down, I’ll be able to make a schedule to do work so I just don’t do work in a random order. I hope I don’t procrastinate this year, and so far, I haven’t been as bad as I usually am.
Finally, is take all the media opportunities I can this year. There are certain things I’ll stay away from that have to deal with speaking publicly, but besides that, I want to try and do challenges like Fall Challenge, Olelo, and Student Television Network Film Excellence. I thought about it, and I’m thinking of doing all of these this year. For Olelo I might shorten down the Ethan Teves Video I’m working on this quarter, and if I can submit it, the Kalalau Trail video I worked on last year. Kolten and I decided to not submit the video since we still had more drafts to work on it. For Film Excellence, I know some people were thinking of doing a short film, but what I noticed is that a bunch of films that won were animations, so I might consider it.
Those are my goals for this year. I hope that I meet all the deadlines, to not procrastinate, and take all the media opportunities I can. My goals probably won’t be completely met, but they’ll probably close. Anyway, that’s it for my first blog, don’t do drugs and wear your seatbelts.
