I will tell you about the most valuable lessons that I learned on the trip. The first is that I learned is that I am more capable then I thought I was. Also I learned that you need to trust your teammates because they can also do more then you might think they can. Finally you should never set your expectations too high for someone, not to be mean.
First I learned that you should believe in yourself because you can do more then you think you can. For instance, I never thought I could stay up till midnight every night for a week and not be too tired. Also I did not think that it would be as easy as it was to get first place in the spot feature competition as it seemed. Over all you should now that you might just amaze yourself with how much better you could be then you think.
Also your teammates will sometimes surprise you with what they can do too. Sometimes when you are out making a video and your teammates come up with an idea that could be something that most people would never find think of. Sometimes when you are making a script one of your teammates could come up with a good pun or a word play and you might never would have thought of it. That has happened to me a couple of times.
Finally, not to be mean, but you should never set your expectations of some one too high. I say this because if you do you might feel like they are not as good as you thought. You should always set it low and let them impress you because then they will seem like they are better then you thought. Just to not to be mean and offend anyone on accident, I will not give any examples. This will make it seem to you that other people are good at things and not bad.
I would appreciate it if you think good about what I have said in this blog and these might be the same for you too. You never know. This blog has come to an end so looks like I have to go. Bye!
I am in 8th grade in my school's Advanced Media class. I love this class and I have been having lots of fun in it. This past year we went to San Diego, where STN was held, and the year before it was in Orlando. This year it was in Atlanta, Georgia.
