Before they became their current job, most politicians started off as lawyers or executives. But what about the people who started off as doctors?
I am starting my second week of working at MandateMedia, a small Portland-based company that conducts research on how technology can be better used to assist political campaigns. That sounds counterintuitive- when somebody says political campaigns to me, I think of knocking on doors, speeches, and debates. Since when is technology important?
My first week at the French American school was very fun, but very tiring. I came in on Monday and was shocked at how well most of the kindergartners spoke French. If they weren't good at speaking, they could at least understand at a very high level. I came in every day around 8 and left at 3. Each day started with about thirty minutes of free time to allow everyone to arrive. After that, each kid was assigned a different task, such as saying the date, the weather, or how many students were absent, in front of the class in French.
The first week of my senior project went excellently! On the first day, my mentor, Lisa, walked me through everything I needed to know about Sycamore Lane and therapeutic riding. She started by showing me the tack room, which was a little overwhelming at first. They use three different kinds of saddles: Dressage, Western, and English. With each kind of saddle you use a different kind of girth and pad.
Firstly, wish all moms have a wonderful today and everyday.
My internship at Portland Center Stage is amazing.
Portland Center Stage (PCS) is a beautiful and a homy place where I certanily wants to work in. I was in love with its cozy atmosphere during my first visit for the show Mid Summer Night's Dream when they decorated the lobby with warm candles, and I fell in love again this time as part of it instead of a mere guest.
First week of my senior project. I had a pretty good week. I started Monday at 9 AM. I arrived and saw Uma, a part-time assistant. She will be coming to work with Marc Mondays and Wednesdays. I have known Uma for a while now and we get along, she’s really nice!! Monday consisted of cleaning up my desk and making copies. I had to make copies of Multnomah Youth Commission applications for our selection committee.
This week I learned that we tend to simplify most of the things we know little (& thought we knew a lot) about. In example, lighting for fashion and product photography has proven itself four times more intricate than I had thought. In a second example, when you think that it is okay to have six inches of your car’s trunk over the driveway of a casually-used car-lot, the city will probably still tow your vehicle. Luckily, I am ridding more and more of my ignorance each day when I go to help out around Swanson Studio.
So far, I really enjoy my senior project. I love that I can actually do things and really contribute to the station. I've written for the five o'clock news cast every day, and my voice has been on air twice. It's so weird hearing my writing and my voice on the radio!
