Hello! This is Alaysia here with a few words I'd like to say before I depart. In my final blog of CKTV, I just wanted to give out some necessary thank you's and just reminisce on my time in the class. But first, thank you to all of YOU who actually take the time to read these blog posts! I know I probably don't make much sense most of the time, which I'm sorry about, but thank you for hearing what I have to say. These past three years in the class have truly been an amazing experience. A lot of the opportunities we were faced with wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the support from our Kaua'i community. I am very thankful for all of your help, especially with our STN trip fundraising. I wouldn't have gotten to go to Orlando, San Diego, Atlanta, and New York without your help. Special mahalo goes out to Uncle Toyo. Uncle Toyo donated iPad's, desktops, and all of the new Macbook Pro's we are so fortunate to use. These pieces of equipment have helped our class so much! Speaking of, Mr. M said we could make a 'last will and testament' to end off the year. To whomever receives Laptop 14, we're now spiritually connected. I hope that our laptop treats you well, being that 14 is a lucky number (and my favorite, too!). Remember in return, treat the laptop with great care and only use it for good! If and when you get the rotating wheel of doom or the beach ball while editing, I wish you luck! I still remember the desktop I used as a sixth grader! I remember once the power went out while we were editing after school on FCP 7 (back when rendering and saving were manual), and a bunch of our projects got reset back. Oh, the beauty in struggle. Furthermore, I met very kind, sweet, and caring people, all whom are just as invested and excited about media as I am. Not many people can say this about their class, so I am lucky that I can. I am proud and so grateful to call the people in the media class, our CKTV Ohana. Thank you to all of my fellow classmates and peers for helping me become a better person and being a great support system. Without this class, I would have never met the great people I call my friends today. Thank you to all of our parents and chaperones out there! Thank you for all of your hard work. Especially towards my parents, thank you for all of the things that I put you through these three years, driving us to interviews, filming, etc. To our chaperones, thank you for dealing with us middle schoolers in the preparation and during the actual STN trip. Again, the trip would not have been possible without you guys! Last, but certainly not the least, the biggest thank you out here goes to our wonderful teacher, Mr. M! It's hard to put into words how great of a teacher you are and the gratitude that I owe to you. No other teacher that I know is as invested, dedicated, and passionate as you are. You put so much work and time into making us and this class, the best it can be. I really appreciate the amount of effort you put in, staying late after school, coming in on weekends, when no one is forcing you to! You have helped shape the person I am today, improving my character. You gave me words of inspiration when I was doubting my work or myself, and you always push us to be the best we can be. Although you can be hard on us, it is only because you want us to strive for greatness. I'll never forget all that you have done for me, Mr. M. Thank you so much! Whether you're a newbie or a returnee reading this, seriously, enjoy your time in the class. Yes, it can be a lot of work sometimes but it's worth it. You can create long lasting friendships, learn lessons that will carry out in life, and create amazing memories along the way. Thank you everyone, and thank YOU again for listening. Goodbye, CKTV.
