1. Festival of Fools
Nobody could cover the Festival of Fools because it was on a Friday, and I'll be honest, I didn't want to cover it either because of that same reason. But I thought, whatever, who cares if everyone else is enjoying their Friday, I'll make my deadline for sure and it can't be that bad. It turned out being not that bad. Some of the skits were pretty funny, and I felt better when I saw my friend in Yearbook covering it and Jackson taking photos, so it wasn't like I was completely alone. And besides that, I feel as though you aren't truly part of the class if you haven't taken initiative at least once and covered an event when nobody else would because isn't that what journalists do? You can't predict every event that's going to happen so sometimes you just have to get out there and do it.
2. Speech and debate nationals
Kienna asked whether Veronica would be able to write it and she said no, because she was busy that week. So I decided to take it even though I was busy because I knew the people I had to interview so it would be easy. It was still a lot of work though, because I had to balance writing and interviewing time with studying for an algebra and chemistry test . The whole article didn't go up, due to communication issues, but part of it went to Rachel's article, so that was good. I wasn't disappointed because I received 25 points for it and you can't cry over everything.
