Today I met with Adam again so that he could read a few of his quotes for my podcasts. I got there at 8 a.m. and Adam didn’t show up till almost 9 a.m. Before I texted him I didn’t think he was going to show up. I am happy that was able to make it because it can be hard to always get our schedules to work out just right to meet up. While I was waiting I got a few pictures taken again with Shawn McAfee because she said my first few were out of focus.  He had to read his quotes a few times through before Grace was happy with them. She told him that he got better as he read on. Adam started to read a clip out of Men’s Health Magazine about Ryan Reynolds to get him warmed up as a joke. The second time through he did a really good job and Grace was happy with end results. Adam also read over the third draft of my paper. I looked over it when he was done and there are a few things that I need to change. We then went over some more of his pictures from when he was in Iraq. We noticed that we didn’t have any photos of him, more were just of scenes in Iraq. I had to get ready to leave for class but I seemed that we got some nice photos of him. In these last few weeks I need to finish up my story behind the story which is about a 1,000 word essay. It’s about what we went through as a journalist getting and writing the story. It’s also about how we felt about the project in general. For example how much we actually knew about the war, if the project was easy or hard and things that shocked us.
