So my dashboard lied to me and said I had 13 posts. I checked just to make sure. Only 12. So now it seems silly that I am writing a blog after my farewell blog, but let's just say it is an encore.
I guess for the finale I am just going to write about what I have learned in J420. I have learned the basics, again. And thankfully. I never realized how much grammar I had forgotten since 6th grade. I still confuse who and whom and still cannot really explain the subjective or objective case. It is funny how much I used grammar just because it sounded and looked right, without having a real reason why. I also learned that canceled is not spelled CANCELLED. I would say that 99 times out of 100 I would have bet my life it was spelled CANCELLED. Good thing no one bet my my life.
I really enjoyed going over photo editing. I loved going through photos and choosing which ones I would run and wouldn't. The picture assignment was probably my favorite day of lecture.
I feel so much more comfortable and confident editing these days. I feel I can cut a story if I have to and it will still be complete and concise. I feel I can write a good headline, a catchy headline. I know that I will check spellings of names EVERY TIME to make sure they match in the story and the cutline. I really always enjoyed going to lab as well. I actually liked rewriting stories and making headlines and choosing photos. I like picking which stories I would run in my newspaper.
I think I might have to stick myself in the editing world eventually.
