I just wanted to quickly reflect on our group presentations. I think everybody did a really great job, and it was nice to see the amount of commitment and effort that everyone put into their projects. I especially liked the group who made the music video it was really amazing. The production and editing were outstanding. If I were to guess, I would say those girls definitely had a shot in the entertainment business. Todays class was fun, I'm really going to miss it.
I wanted to make a post discussing my course project and the circumstances behind it. I was never able to get the solid research that would have been necessary to develop a proper and complete proposal to President Bradshaw. My previous Professor was never able to return my emails and has been out of the country this entire semester. Instead, I have taken on a project at work as an act of charity. The Brotherhood Ride gets their t-shirts and promotional material from us each year. We usually give it to them for our material and labor cost without markup for profit, but when they approached us this year, I decided I would cover the cost of materials and I would do all of the labor.
I have really started to make friends with my classmates. Caitlin, Valerie, and Kai just to name a few have been extremely hospitable. I worked with them on their final projects, which is the Plastic Bag Recycling. I did my own and will explain that in a later post. I felt like I wanted to do something with my classmates as well. I did not put in all the time and effort into the Plastic Bag Recycling that they did, but I did help with table hours. I made myself available the last couple days when I knew they would need me.
Well, the semester is starting to wind down and I am excited but I will really appreciate Colloquium for a few different reasons. Originally I did not think I would like Colloquium very much. thought it would be over-the-top, but now I realize how ignorant I truly was. I do think that this class should be required for all FGCU Graduates. However, I do feel like they should make it mandatory within the first two years or enrollment. Only because it's a Gordon Rule class.
I don't have much to write about Colloquium today. I wasn't able to present last week and I am bummed about that. I heard they had a good time and that the class participated well. I have started to research things for my Service Learning Project. I haven't heard from my Professor who I know could help me with my project. Caitlin Poor and I have decided to do the best we can at making FGCU and E-Waste recycling facility.
Once again, I'm feeling very sick. I'm supposed to be presenting my chapter to our Colloquium class in about eight hours and I feel like I wont be able to make it. It's really difficult to accept considering the amount of preparation the three of us have put into the project in the past few days. We're doing a Who's Line Is It Anyway type improve skit. I think it will be fun to witness the participation of our class and hopefully Dr. Otto as well.
