My Crazy Broadcasting World

Yep, I'm a pretty busy girl.

Last Call!

Well, it's over. We Capstone kids gave our big presentations last Monday. This semester flew by! Our graduation is in 12 short days.

Everyone really did such a fantastic job. I'm so proud of our capstone class - I really think that we're in a league of our own. The past four years have been crazy, but fun...especially with the six people I shared the spotlight with last Monday.

The bulk of my presentation concerned the three e-portfolios I put together. I did one for radio news, one for media relations, and one for print journalism. For my presentation, I combined the three and added a bit of the television work I did back in the day. I thought it went pretty well. I was able to show my creativity as well as many of the projects I've done.

As far as what I could have done differently, I wish I would have been a little more loose. A lot of the presentations were so funny and laid-back, and I felt really uptight and serious. I think it was because I was so nervous. I don't usually get that way when I'm speaking in public. I'm blaming my family!

I also felt that I flew through the different elements of my presentation because of time constraints. I wish I would have shortened my intro and conclusion and showed a little more of my experience.

Overall, I was happy with how everything went. Although I'm excited about moving on to the next chapter of my life (even though I have no clue what it will be like!), I'm really going to miss the good times I had with the broadcasting department at WC. I want to wish all of my fellow capstoners the best of luck!

Don't think of it as last call-- think of it as a transition to bigger and better things.
