That’s nice that you were ahead of the game and already knew what you wanted to cover for your first field assignment. I enjoyed my event for my assignment as well!
My first field assignment of the quarter was actually really fun to write. I was actually thinking about the assignment before the school year started so I didn’t have to worry about it later. I was trying hard to find something that actually sparked my interests but it was becoming difficult to…
Let me just start off by saying we are currently only have three weeks left of school, and then finals week! I am so excited that this quarter is finally coming to an end. The only class that I am kind of stressing about is PR Theory. Overall, my mid quarter grade is a high B, which is really good, but we have our individual papers and our group papers that are going to be turned in within the next two weeks. But, I have to say even though I will be rushing to get the papers completed, it is nice that they are due early and not the week of finals. Then I will for sure not be able to procrastinate. Okay, so now moving on. This past weekend was nice and relaxing! My boyfriend, Beau, and I went to his nephew, Wyatt’s 5th birthday party, and we also got many things done around the house that I have been meaning to do. The party was at Prado Park, and it was racing theme. Beau’s brother BBQ’ed hamburgers and hot dogs that were delicious. Wyatt had a blast opening up all of his presents. Beau and I made a personalized scrap bucket for Wyatt’s birthday present since Wyatt goes around the family yard and picks up scraps with his Grandpa. He loved all his presents! In other news for my blog, last night was the Presidential Election. Without stating my stance, I believed it was important for everyone to vote. And, I would also like to acknowledge something else that I am passionate about. It was said that almost $5 billion was spent in overall campaigning for this election. This makes me very upset since that is money that you will never see again. I understand this is for marketing the President of the United States, but that is money that can be used to cure cancer, or help individuals who actually deserve help. Or maybe even help towards this deficit we are in. Okay, enough political rambling, I already have to see it all on FB. Lol!
Below are two collages that Beau’s sister-in-law Carissa made!! :-)
This sounds like a good field assignment. Hopefully you get an A!
I just finished writing my field assignment! Now that calls for a celebration! Just kidding… but I am pretty relieved to check that off my list. Even though it’s done I am going to wait at least until tomorrow to turn it in. I have learned throughout my past experience for reporting one as well…
I am doing my first field assignment on the California Beer Festival on October 6th, 2012 at Frank Bonelli Park in San Dimas. The event was from 12:30-5 p.m. The The California Beer Festival is put on in four different locations all over California. The locations include: Ventura, Santa Cruz, Novato, and Claremont/San Dimas. This event featured over 70 craft brews on tap, live music, and mouthwatering food. Many vendors were there presenting their businesses as well. Ticket prices were $45 dollars. With the ticket, you received a souvenir cup for beer tastings. The proceeds benefit the Gen Giammanco Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that provides financial support to student athletes to assist in their pursuit of both scholastic and athletic success in the city of San Dimas. Last quarter I did my field assignment on The Taste of Chino Valley, and I found that I really love to cover live events. I interviewed members of the committee who put this event on (email, over the phone, and/or in person), people who attend the event (one-on-one interviews), and vendors/sponsors who support the event. This was a big event that also included three other locations in California. I wanted to explore the process of planning one of these events. The story will include the history on the event itself, as well as what will be in store for the Festival in the future. I also did a small feature in my report about the foundation that benefits from the event. I used the California Beer Festival website to research the event, along with their Facebook page. Their Facebook page led me to many interesting assets to be explored for possible interviews. Their Facebook page also lead to more of the vendors/sponsors information than the website itself. The event itself was extremely entertaining, and I definitely recommend going at least once!
That does sound like a fun job! And if they work around your school schedule, even better! I have only been ice skating a couple of times, but it is really fun.
I find it very rare to meet people who can actually say without a doubt that they love their job, especially at such a young age. I feel so fortunate to have a job that not only pays really well, but also bring me so much joy. Some of you may know, but I work at Center Ice Arena in Ontario…
I have never really checked out Flik’s Fun Fair in a Bug’s Land at Disney’s California Adventure! I had a season pass, but it is now expired :-( When I go back I’ll have to check it out. I love the Toy Story ride!
Flik’s Fun Fair in a Bug’s Land at Disney’s California Adventure did not seem like a lot of fun to me. It was basically a bunch of children’s rides that I never really cared for too much. To be honest, the only time I would step into Flik’s or a Bug’s Land for that matter was just so I could…
Parking has been crazy! I actually had some girl back into my truck. She was on her phone and not paying attention when she backed out. Not good :-(
Also, this is kinda random, but I have only taken classes here M-F. How is it going all day only on T/TH?? I was thinking of doing that next quarter and it would be from 10am-9pm…
I figured since this is week three and everyone is still complaining about parking ill speak about some stories I’ve heard. So usually when i have classes i park in lot J but this quarter I am stuck parking in lot M. On top of this i am at school 10-9 on Tuesday’s and Thursdays; it wouldn’t be a…
