As of tonight, we have had 6 class sessions.
In a regular class, this is what I would have learned:
- Prime desk options
- Amount of caffeine necessary to survive
However, this is not an ordinary class. It’s an extraordinary class! hahah.
We have learned so much. When we started, I didn’t know how to change the battery on my video camera or how to get it to stay on the tripod. I can now rock that battery change like a champion. Tripod…still tends to be a little awkward, but it’s getting there. Silly tripod.
We have learned a ton of theology. My brain hasn’t exploded from excessive knowledge intake as of yet, so I’m taking that as a good sign that we can continue to learn more. I was actually really nervous about the theology portion, because it is a 300 level course, and the only class I had taken was the introductory course. I’m glad to say it’s been working out quite nicely. Huzzah for that
We’ve also started in on editing, which is a blast. I never realized how incredibly tedious it is though. Today in class, it was mentioned that we would probably spend 4 hours editing for every minute that was in the video. I thought it was a joke. Ya…not a joke. That computer lab is going to be our home when we get back from the Dominican Republic.
It’s a lot…And that’s not even the half of it.
BUT WE LEAVE IN 6 DAYS.
I think that’s what’s keeping me hanging in there. In 6 days we’ll be in the Dominican Republic, and we will have to know everything that we’ve learned and use it effectively. Which I’m sure we will 🙂
Now, I must go to bed so that I can learn again tomorrow.
…We are all going to have disproportionately large heads by the end of this.
