Week 5 Ivansek

Holly working at Oaks Candy.

Today we shared our first podcast with the class. I had to redo my podcast three times. The first one I recorded I said “warrior and students” and it should have been ‘warriors and students.” Grace wanted me to add a outro to my podcast. She texted Adam to ask him what kind of car he drives to add to the outro so it fit my intro. The second time I recorded my podcast Grace said that I was reading too formally. She told me it was fine if I wanted to use that one or I could record it again. I decided to record it again. I had to wait till after spring break because I got a bad cold and cough. Although it can be a lot of work to have to keep recording and editing the podcast, I am glad that I did record it for a third time. It sounded much better. Now I just have to add the music, intro and outro to make my first podcast complete. I didn’t get to work on my paper over spring break like I wanted to. I had to work a lot of hours because I work at Oaks Candy and it was very busy for Easter. I also decided that I wanted to rest and didn’t want to worry so much about school. That way when I get back I’ll have a clear mind to get back to work. I started working on my story on Easter Sunday because that was the only day I had off. It took me awhile to think of a lead. I ended up adding a few things to my original lead to make it feel like you were actually standing at the edge of the lake. I have a 1,300 word story done but it needs to be about 2,000 words. So I am going in to Grace’s office so she can look at what I got so far for my first draft.
