One summer goal I have relates more towards media, learning more about photography. I've only recently learned the magic of manually shooting, and it's seriously improved the photos that I take. I've recently got the "nifty fifty" lens last week and so I really want to test out that maximum aperture! I want to learn about how the different settings can achieve different affects. Currently, I only know about how the aperture can create a nice shallow DOF, prompting bokeh in the background. I want to learn more about night, motion blur, long exposure, macro, and other types of photography! I also want to improve in being faster at changing the settings manually. I can read online or watch videos to get more insight on these types of photography. There is so much to learn and I want to use this summer to do so!
Another summer goal I have is to work on stopping procrastinating. Procrastination is a major thing that occurs to me on a daily basis. It affects me not only in media, but in all classes! It's such a terrible habit that I need to break, especially before going to High School. Here in middle school, the teachers aren't that strict in deadlines and they let you turn in your work late without penalty. However, just like in media, at High School you'll receive consequences for late work, and some may not even accept it at all. To improve on stopping this, I will avoid putting off my summer chores and assignments, and instead, do them right away. This summer, I will work on breaking the procrastination habit.
A third goal I have for the summer is to try new things. Usually what occurs during summer breaks is that I fall into a lazy, unproductive state. I stay up until 5am on Netflix, sleep in late, then repeat the whole process. This summer, I want to break that unproductive streak. It's always good to try new things. I want to read more books, learn songs on the piano, go jogging, take more photos, learn to code, learn a language, the list can go on and on! My point is, there is so much that can be done during the break and I want to put that time to use, not to waste. When I joined media in the sixth grade, that was me trying something new. I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not, but I decided to give it a chance. Fast forward about three years later, and here I am! I love this class! So this summer, I want to use my time trying new things and see if I discover something that I love just as much as CKTV.
To conclude, three summer goals I have are to learn more about photography, stop procrastinating, and to try new things. Let's put this summer break to use. It is in our favor after all. How are you going to spend your summer break? Whatever your answer may be, stay safe and have fun! Well, that's it for this week's constructed response! Thanks for reading! Goodbye!
