Days 9 and 10 at UM Journalism Workshop, and a World Cup Recap

Hitting the home stretch.

The last two days at the University of Miami's Journalism Workshop have been really good. I played around with some different forms of media yesterday and I adapted to it fairly quickly. The different parts of a camera are quite easy to pick up on, as I learned how to set up a tripod and shoot freehand. I am working on pitching a second story idea to my editor, which relates to the documentary Soledad O'Brian did on Haiti called "Rescued."

It really is something else when interviewing sources and having them describe their experiences in Haiti. Your human side tends to conflict with your journalism side, which is something all journalists must learn to balance in tough situations. Food has still be good. They finally switched up the choice today with meatballs instead of chicken, you can't go wrong with free.

Friday will be spent at WSVN studios in North Bay Village. I am really looking forward to that as well as the photography assignments I have on Wednesday and Thursday. I don't really have experience with broadcasting but I may end up liking it, journalism at first wasn't the best thing in the world, but now it is.

The future looks bright, I love the core writing and the ability to create multimedia packages. It's like a modifying word, it just makes everything better.

*World Cup*
Spain 1, Netherlands 0:
Excellent final, Spain's ball possession and articulate passing proved the difference over the Dutch. They really look poised to make a run in Brazil in 2014, the new logo looks really nice by the way(posted above). Brazil is the host country and should win, but then again alot of teams can make a run for the finish.
