J2150: Can a lot of work be fun?

All in all, I’m really liking this class so far. At first I was a little worried about the workload, and both professors warned us that it would be a lot of work. However, I was relieved as soon as I saw the type of work it would be. After all, is work really “work” if it’s things that are fun? I don’t think so. I was like a kid in a candy store when I looked at all the stuff we’re learning how to do this semester.

I came here to gain the tools necessary to become a great journalist, so I can follow my dreams of becoming the best sports journalist there’s ever been. It’s a tall order, and it requires three things: passion, knowledge of the game, and a solid foundation of journalistic techniques and practices. I’ve definitely got more than enough passion for what I’m doing, and my knowledge of sports increases every day because I’m always studying sports and becoming more knowledgeable in that area. This means the thing I need to work on the most is my foundation of journalistic techniques and practices. In today’s world, that means being extremely versatile with different forms of media. For this reason, J2150 will help me a lot in achieving my goals, so I am extremely excited.

Last of all, I’d like to present my latest multimedia project, a video that I made. Please feel free to offer critiques on it!
