Blog #3!!

Ok, what’s been going on for the past two weeks of my senior project?

In the Capitol

I spent Wednesday of last week in the Capitol with my mentor as she met with legislators, and other lobbyists. It was great to meet with and bump into legislators as we walked around the Capitol as it provided me with a very different look at the lives and work of our lawmakers than the somewhat bizarre communications I had, had with them via email during my final project in Patrick’s Globalization class.

Week #4

 My final week at Ceramics West Dental Lab consisted of continuing to learn about the intricate process of creating crowns and bridges. I was able to finish a number of waxes for two different sets of teeth. Also, I got to create a wax coping of a molar which is pictured below in a little box. The crown pictured below was not a crown that I created but was a crown I followed throughout the entire process, beginning from the impression sent by a dentist to the end where the dental technician made the final adjustments using a drill. 

Sherwood Fire & Rescue Community Fair

 Yesterday I took part in the15th annual  Sherwood Fire & Rescue Community Fair on behalf of the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge. I didn't know what to expect when pulling up, but when i got out of the car and walked into the fire station, I was sure it would be a flop. There were maybe 10 booths set up, advertising everything from electical saftey to the Cat Adoption Team. A dozen happy helpers milled about the concrete floor, mingling with the fire fighters who helped direct the flow of activity.

Third Course: Week 3 at EYHO

On Monday I worked with Bobby, Tony, and Jacob to prepare for our event later in the evening. We were catering a memorial service in someone’s condo for a recently passed husband and father. We made a buffet of small items including bite size desserts, zippy burgers (sliders), crab cakes, tortellini skewers, and a cream cheese log with salmon and fresh herbs. After the kitchen prep was done I changed into my all black catering uniform and drove to the destination.

Final Week at Nike

 My final week at Nike I had the remainder of my interviews and started working on my presentation for Nike. I met with Matt Park, the VP of NFL, MLB, and college football and baseball apparel and some engineers who work on creating and testing Nike golf balls. Meeting with Matt was really cool because he’s in charge of so much apparel that I see frequently. While he also, like many other Nike employees, said that Under Armor is the main competitor, he pointed out that Under Armor has a similar plan and foundation to that of Nike’s, which I did not know.

Benny, a Few More Dentals, and The Sad Truth about Euthanasia- The Final Week

As my project sadly comes to an end this week I thought I would think back at all the exciting and not so exciting things I have seen over my month of working at VCA East Mill Plain Animal Hospital. I realized in the midst of reminiscing that I never told you about the fluffy dog from my first blog post, so let me take a quick minute to tell you about Benny.

Running blog and my second segment

 Yesterday I put together a very short segement by myself. I got my assignment and a few links and I was asked to investigate and conduct interviews to find out if the piece would be intreseting. It was about Clark County trying to make a new govrement charter. It was less then 10 minutes but it was cool to make something that was completely mine. I choose the guest, booked him, intreviewed him and wrote questions for the host (which he used most of). The piece went how I hoped it would and it was really neat. It was also fun because I had less then a day to bring it together. 

Strawberry Fields

Thank you for following my Senior Project blog and sharing my photography journey with me! I had a great time in my Senior Project this year, and Ben has been a wonderful mentor. 
One fun thing we did in the last days of our senior project was go to a strawberry field. 
That day, I woke up at 5am and arrived at the front of the Hillsboro Argus at around 5:50. Ben, with his car trunk open, was already sorting through his camera gear and getting things organized.
