First of all, after the first year of media was over, I was kind of debating on going into the leadership class or the media class. They are both really good classes, and I just didn't know which way to go. I was trying out for leadership, and then Mr. M walks into the room and starts telling me, in a joking way, that I should stay in media, and that media is a good class for me, etc. So, I was like, "Oh my gosh, what am I gonna do?" You know? So I started to ask a whole bunch of people how the leadership class is, and they said it is a really hard class, like people hardly ever get A's. And knowing me, I put myself down hard if I get a B in just ONE of my classes, like I'll go crazy! But, you know, I'm a hard worker, so I figured I might be good in that class. I gathered more information on both sides and started processing everything through...
This was a difficult decision for me because I was kind of iffy about the situation. The reason I joined media was because I really had fun in the X-Block. But, when it came to the real seal, it kind of turned into more of a work-all-day kind of thing, and that's kinda not how I roll. I like to have lots of active activities, and have fun with my friends and everything! But, this class took up a lot of my time, and so I barely had time to do anything else. But, on the bright side, most of my really good friends were in that class, so I knew I wouldn't be totally out of luck, which is partially why I wanted to go back, as well as because I made so many good friends in the previous year. The downside was that I didn't like all the stress being put on me, including the deadlines and all the standards we had to meet in order to get a good grade for the class. It was all too much for me, but on the other hand, I did have fun during the STN trip, and being able to make my own music videos along with meeting new people! So, this was a great learning experience and I enjoyed it! Now, you can see why I had such a difficult time deciding.
In the end, I ended up going into the media class. This, I guess you could say was a good decision for me to make, because it has helped me achieve many things, such as, being able to type really fast without looking most the times. I've also become more confident and social because I've learned to work better with others I may or may not have known. I have also made a lot of good friends through this class, so that was really good for me, because I like having a bunch of friends! i've also learned a lot about filming and all that, and it made me realize that I really love to be creative and film my own projects! So, that's where I started to get the idea of being in the film industry when I grow up! So, that's one way this has made an impact in my life! I guess it also makes me better at my mental math, because as you all know, I am not the greatest at it…but when I work the money job for Snack Shop, I always have to think quickly for the amount of change someone needs, and how much things cost!
Overall, I think that this has been a good decision, and I'm pretty sure it will look good on my resume when I'm applying for some film job application or something. Who knows where this might take me in life! This decision has made so many changes in my life that I can't imagine what my life would be like if I hadn't met so many new people, or competed in the STN, or filmed my first news story and PSA etc. This was a difficult decision to make, and I really hope I do not have to encounter any more. So, I am glad with the decision I chose to make because it has affected my life in a positive way, which makes me…..very… HAPPY XD.
