I can’t finally start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Every day it gets brighter and brighter as I complete an assignment or one more page on my website. This year has been challenging to say the least, but I have grown so much at the same time. I have overcome huge emotional roasters and persevered. Finding the right balance between being a mom, a wife, a teacher and a student is not an easy task. With all of my new knowledge, I am excited about this upcoming school year. Once I have worked out the kinks I look forward to being able to share this knowledge with my colleagues. I am very appreciative to Touro University for having a master’s program that is applicable to my work in the classroom and not just a fancy degree. My journey to completing my master’s degree will end in less than a week, but my learning will be everlasting.
I find that editing is what takes the longest. It doesn’t matter if its a video, a slide deck or even a poster, they all take forever to edit! One small change means shifting and altering every other text box on that page. At some point you just have to walk away and say “I’m done!” I feel that way about my poster. After another hour of editing visual parts to my poster this morning I am finally done. Now I just need feedback before I can start working on my video. I definitely do not want to have to redo my entire video because I used the wrong version of my poster. Fingers crossed I can finish my website this week,start my video Monday and edit on Tuesday. Then I am DONE!!! I guess the question I have is, when do we have to submit our link to our video for Wednesday’s presentation? I hope it’s not before midnight on Tuesday. Everything has to be done in order and I am now feeling to pressure of time. 6 days left and counting! I got this!!
Editing is SO time consuming! Something that seems as easy and a drag of a picture isn’t really that easy. I wish that you could just click on the picture, type how many seconds you want it to play and then move on. Instead, what should take 5 minutes turn into an hour. It really wasn’t that hard, but sometimes technology just doesn’t work the way you think it should. Maybe my problems will be fixed through an update in the near future. That is the nice part about technology. It is always changing and bug/glitches are always being fixed.
This week I also started on my poster and everything seems to be going smoothly. I made a copy of one of the samples that I like and I am changing out one section at a time. Once the text is my words I change the heading color so that I can see what I have done and an example of what I have left to do. Hopefully I can finish today since my executive summary is now complete. Fingers crossed I can copy and paste with little editing. I will let know you on my next blog posting how it goes. The end is near! I can almost taste it!!!
