Hey ladies and gentlemen, and everyone else. This will be the last thing that I shall write for my blog, which if you recall I began for my Multimedia Journalism Class. It has been a blast taking on something new every week and I thoroughly enjoyed it. For those of you interested this will be the last entry in this blog, but it won’t be the end of my adventures, but more about that at the end of the post.
It started a couple of months ago, this blog, when I was told that I will be writing a blog and that I needed a specific subject for it. Adventures, I decided. However then I was also told to come up with a question to go along with the blog, something which I ought to answer through progressing with it. And I came up with this.
How far will I go?
Pretty damn far. I met so many people. Each one with their own little adventures. I don’t mean just their unusual or exciting activities (the definition I chose for “adventure”), I mean their lives, the way they got to the point where they are. The stories I got told while talking to them about freestyle longboarding, or about fire spinning, or about walking in random direction, or cliff-diving, or dirt-biking, or about snowboarding, indoor and outdoor mountain climbing, sword fighting (I had some backup blog subjects). Those stories were their lives, or at least parts of them. Those were their actual adventures.
Life is an adventure whether I like it or not. It doesn’t have to exciting or unusual of fun all the time. However, more often than not, it will be, whether you like it or not. That’s awesome.
Every time I heard a new story I felt the urge to go out and try it. I felt a force that just makes me go out and experience life in a new way. And I got to say that I have noticed that besides all the little new things I’ve learned and experienced throughout the current semester, I’ve also become a little bit more inclined to go on an actual adventure. To do stuff I’d never do before, just because. Well, not just because, but because it’s fun.
Life is an adventure. Hopefully , I’ve got a lot more life left.
I did learn a lot of course. How to film, how to interview, sound recording and both video and audio editing. Used a whole bunch of useless tools on the internet. How to tweet of course… I got 200 followers on twitter which is cool. Kinda hate twitter now… I did also learn how to use thinglink. It lets you put links on pictures. I also used storify, which lets you built up a story from different links and social media
I’d like to of course thanks everyone who helped me by being interviewed.
Thanks for reading,
but if you do wish to proceed following my adventures and such, feel free to visit my other blog which is a little bit more comedy-related (hint: it’s about my life, that makes it a big joke). theivochronicles.blogspot.com
