First off, what happened and what did I do? In elementary I was very intrigued and curious about technology, media, and cameras and I wanted to learn more about it. The elementary school I went to unfortunately didn't have a media productions class so I was very excited that the middle school I was about to attend, had one! What did I do? Of course, I decided to apply. That was the best decision I've made, and It affected my life from then on greatly. I was absolutely thrilled when I was accepted into the class! In sixth grade, I really liked the experience I had, so I decided to re-join in my seventh grade year. Here I am, in seventh grade, and a second year media student and I love it! It really did affect the events afterward.
Applying and joining the media class brought great things. The media class, or the CKTV Ohana, is like a second family to me. I made lots of great friends and I know that I could trust every single person in the class. Because I applied and joined, I have friends in 9th, 8th, 7th, and 6th grade who I still keep in touch with outside of school! If I hadn't joined the class, I probably wouldn't have very good friends, or much friends for that fact. My classmates and teacher offer me constructive criticism so that I can improve. Not only has the decision to join caused me to create good friendships, but also taught me about technology. Before the class, I didn't know anything about DSLR's or any other equipment. Embarrassingly, probably the only experience I had with a camera was with a point-and-shoot. This class taught me how to use DSLR's, microphones, tripods, the tricaster, how to work the announcements, and so much more. I also learned how to tell stories through film-making. Because of this class, one of my stories aired on Hiki Nō a few days ago. Another positive effect of this class is that it taught me so many life lessons and skills that you couldn't learn in any regular class such as being punctual, not procrastinating, managing time, meeting deadlines, cooperating with others, improving, and many more that will help me throughout my whole life. Being in this class also got me thinking about my future. I think almost definitely that I will aim to pursue a career in arts and communications, or anything in the media/technology field. I also got to travel which I love. In sixth grade we went to Florida, and that was my first time going there. I don't travel often, but being able to travel with all of your friends doing something you love, is absolutely amazing. The decision to join CKTV media productions class has opened up so many experiences and opportunities.
Was the effect positive or negative and would I go back to change that decision if I could? The effect of my decision was positive. You could probably tell that it was positive from my previous paragraphs. Would I change the decision If I could? Of course not! Choosing to apply brought great, positive things to my life and I wouldn't change any of that if I could. I wouldn't want to know what my life would be like without the class and all the people that it brought with it because I love how it is now.
In summary, my decision to join the CKTV Media Productions class brought positive effects and I would not change that if I could. "There were so many of us who would have to live with things done and things undone that day. Things that did not go right, things that seemed okay at the time because we could not see the future. If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can't know better until knowing better is useless."-Looking For Alaska, John Green Everyday we make decisions, whether they are simple or complex, but they still effect our future. This being said, let's all be cautious of our decisions so that the effect it will bring in the future will be positive. Also, I'd like to give a big thank you to my friends, classmates and instructor, Mr. Matsunaga for you all have helped in the positive effect and created a positive impact on my life. That's it for my blog! Thanks for reading! Bye!
