Hey guys! I’m back from the break with another blog! I decided not to do a vlog this week again, because I don’t think you guys want to see my really red eye, so I will just be doing a blog. This week’s topic is on my goals for the new quarter, which are, to meet all of the deadlines, to get in multiple drafts of our video, and to be good mentor. These are all very common, but important goals.
My first goal is to meet all of my deadlines because that gets you good grades and for things like your radios, if you don’t turn it in on time FM97 will have to adapt to it. It puts them in a rough spot. At STN as well, they will not let you turn in your video if you are even just a second late. Making these deadlines will keep me and my project on schedule. Laziness is definitely an obstacle that I have to overcome. So is procrastination. Trust me, at least once this year you will procrastinate it’s kind of impossible to avoid it. I plan on achieving this goal by not getting distracted by these obstacles. The steps I will take to achieve this goal is are to try to finish my work or other work from my other classes whenever I have free time!
Another goal I have for this quarter is to get in multiple drafts of our video before the due date. This is always good to do so he can give you feedback. Then, you can improve your video for a higher grade. You will never get a perfect first draft. It takes multiple revisions to get the grade you want. I plan on achieving this goal by trying to get ahead. Being right on track is good, but being ahead is great! Good to great! The steps I will take to achieve this goal will be to start early on all of the deadlines. The T.I.A.S, the interview, the script!
My last goal is to be a good mentor. I am new at being a returning student and that means I have to teach a new student coming into the class. I really don’t want to teach my partner badly and then that affects how she works next year and how she teaches a new students next year. I really want to make her a successful student and she definitely has the potential. I also want to be a good mentor for other students as well. Any student in our class that needs help I want to be able to help them. I plan on achieving this goal by listening to my partner’s ideas and to teach her more instead of just doing it for her. As for the other students beside my partner, I want to bond with them so they feel like they can ask me anything and they aren’t scared to ask me a question. The steps I will take to achieve this goal are to just talk to my partner. Let her know I am always open to her ideas.
That’s it for this blog! These are my 3 goals of the year and I actually have one more side goal that I did not write a whole paragraph about. That would be getting our story on Hiki No. I didn’t make it one of my 3 goals to write a paragraph about because I think that it’s kind of extra. I mean getting our story on Hiki No would be amazing! Although, it’s alright if we don’t. It will be Taylor M’s first news story and it will be my first time working on a news story without another returnee. Thank you guys so much for reading! Bye!
