For my news photography class I had to create a two to three minute audio photo story. We could pick our own topic so I chose to my job as a coach at Tena’s Gymnastics. For me this was a really comfortable and fun topic because it’s what I spend all my time doing outside of school. I went in to work two hours early last week and took pictures of the gym, the kids, and the coaches. For the background audio of the photo story I used audio of just the noise and the kids in the gym, as well as: quotes from the kids on why they love gymnastics, why the coaches love their job, and why parents love Tena’s Gymnastics for their children.
The library has officially become my second home for the time being because it is finally finals week. Only the most exhausting and stressful week of your life. All the grades and everything you’ve learned finally come down to this time. It is now time to finally give it your all and finish out strong. Now that the library has extended its hours to 24/7 for this week, lots of college students are spending lots of their time here. For me it is definitely the only place where I can focus and really get stuff done. The hardest part is that since everyone is in here I see lots of my friends. As great as it is to see them, I have to get down to business and not socialize.
Every southern Arkansas girl has her pair of boots. It’s only right to own a pair living in Arkansas. Arkansas and Arkansas people are full of country music and country people. It’s the south, what did you expect? It’s just the way it goes. But I can honestly say that’s what I love about the south. Everyone down here has that sweet southern hospitality. It’s like living in a state that is just one small town. In Arkansas everyone knows everyone and if they don’t they will introduce themselves. It’s so much fun to meet new people. Since we are the Natural State, being part of the outdoors is a fun part about it all too.
It is the week before finals. The week that all college students dread. This is the last week for crunch time. All students are having partial panic attacks to figure out how to save their grade and get all their work done. Teachers are bringing all lectures to an end as well as getting all assessments and projects finished up. It’s the most stressful time of the semester for everyone. No one looks forward to the week before finals or the week and a half of finals following. The library is not only the most popular place to be on campus during this time, it’s also the craziest and busiest place.
