I’ve only had one class so far this week. Last night, I went through the list of items to do throughout the semester and plunked them into a spreadsheet. Someone is officially doing this for our program, but I didn’t want to wait and assume it will be ready soon. There are no excuses allowed in this program and it’s up to me to ensure I’m on top of things.
Just one course looks like a mountain.
I don’t know much about mountain climbing, so I figure my approach will be to put one foot in front of the other and as I step I’ll have tools given to me that will help me get further up the mountain provided I do my part to learn how to use them. The school seems to have harnesses in place to help us succeed, so that is some comfort. Having watched a few films with mountain climbing scenes in them, I know I can’t rely solely on those safeties either.
The hardest mountain to climb may not be the piles of work ahead, but overcoming the urge to laze about watching TV or playing video games instead of putting the work in.
Off to start another day. We have Video Production Basics and Writing for Digital Media 1 today. After this, the weekend begins where I will be trying to find time to get all this done, go to church, and do martial arts. Next weekend will be even harder as I have to travel for a wedding. I’m going to try and get ahead of the work to handle that. We also have to do field placement somewhere in all this.
I’m looking forward to Video Production as I’ve been wanting to learn these skills and haven’t been able to get it myself. Some things I’m great at learning on my own and others seem to require a brain rewire.
Anyway, I must hop in the shower and get ready to catch the bus.
Guid cheerio the nou,
