“So, what did you learn at school today?”
While this conversation was common in my house, I don’t think I would pass Carol’s class with a one word blog post. Not only would it be taking cutting copy to the next level, but it would be a total and complete lie.
So, what did I learn in school today? Or, the last three days I should say.
I’ve learned about shutter speeds, asking open-ended questions, ecclesiology, the rule of thirds, Pulitzer Prize winners, paradigm shifts, boom mics, content management systems, Vatican II, Nico’s sad face, Snickerdoodle recipes, John’s hair history…
These are only a few topics that have been covered throughout the last several days of backpack bootcamp. I could dedicate a blog post to each, but I would lose readers and probably some friends.
So, what have I really learned? That I can do this.
I can shoot video, edit it, and understand that it takes more than a filter to look good.
I can reference brilliant work and use that inspiration to formulate questions, anticipate answers and tastefully seek the truth.
I can educate others on the connection between my faith and an active social justice issue.
Finally, I learned that I have the best group to learn right along with me.
I used to say nothing, now I have everything.
More to come,
