DJ: Film Techniques


An assignment for Digital Journalism class, teaching all the film techniques!

On Tuesday August 9th, KIS held try-outs for 2011-2012 Varsity and Junior Varsity Volleyball teams in the Phoenix Gym. A total of thirty five students tried out to be on the team. Fifteen of them were students coming back, and twenty new comers.

In the beginning of try-outs Coach Day expressed his excitement for the volleyball try-outs.

“I’m really thrilled to see you girls try-out, we are not going to judge anyone so I hope you guys play volleyball while having fun.”

Students also expressed their enthusiasm and nervousness for the try-outs.

“It was really good to be back on the team” said Junior Hyuen Jin Jin, “I will look forward to the new season. No matter what team I get in, I will enjoy playing volleyball.”

Hyuen Jin, who was on the Junior Varsity team expressed how thrilled she to be back on the team. Next, a freshmen expressed her nervousness to be playing with the other grade.

“Tryouts were really fun, I learned a lot of new stuff from the Juniors and Seniors” said freshmen Tisha Kwon. “In middle school it was just playing games, but now we have positions and are able to try new skills which is interesting.”

The try-outs lasted for four days. Coach Day, Coach Suk, and Coach Wolfe tried their best to see the athletic talents from all these students. They also helped the student try out new positions and skills.

Each and every year, the number of students trying out for volleyball and other sports increases. The expansion of these students make it more difficult for the coaches to cut down the Varsity and Junior Varsity to only twelve students. So, the number of students in the team expand every year.

On the last day of Try-outs, the coaches gave the team two important expectations. First, to always have fun and have a positive attitude while playing volleyball. Second, to never miss practice. All the girls are expecting to have a great season.

I take economics class in school, and during our economics class we had to make a documentary video based on a question we made up. Each group was a form of two people, and the video had to be 8 minutes to 12 minutes long. This is the video we made:

eye inflammation

So, this post is totally about myself and my experience of an eye inflammation. In Korea, the eye inflammation was spreading around in the past, about 2 or 3 years ago. However, it has come back and I got the disgusting and painful eye inflammation. Well, all you reader may think that this eye “inflammation” is nothing. BUT, it is totally something. I did a little research for you guys about this eye inflammation. The eye inflammation is extremely contagious and is mostly caught by people between their 20s and 40s. When you have gotten this eye inflammation your eye becomes extremely red, swells up a lot, feels hot and is really painful. The least amount of time this takes to heal is about 1 weak, however because of the inflammation it would be better to be careful for about 3 to 4 weeks. Because this inflammation is extremely contagious it would be better if you would not be near anyone who does not have it. Well, due to this eye inflammation I have been stuck at home from Wednesday! The only place I went outside was the hospital, to check my eyes. I would inform you readers to be extremely careful and to always wash your hands and do not rub your eyes!

This is for you readers who want to see with your eyes how this eye inflammation LOOKS like:

Every one has a bff, right?

Everyone has a friend who is so-called “best friend”. Referring to Wikipedia the definition of Best Friend is someone (singular) with whom one shares the strongest possible kind of friendships. My best friend has been my friend from 7th grade but has been my best best best friend from 8th grade. I have 3 best friends including Claire, however all three of them had decided to move to America. I am the only one stuck in my motherland, Korea. But among those three friends I feel more connected to Claire because we really had difficult situations which we went through together. Well, let me explain you guys more about Claire, she really smart and a totally fashionable. Her dream is to become a doctor, so I pray for her everyday that her dream will come true. But, the single reason I truly trust her as my best friend is because she is always honest with me, she never lies. Even though she is in California right now, I am going to see her during the summer break so until then I’ll keep contact with her. OH! also she does tumblr, she writes almost twice a week and her post are so honest and adorable! PS. People reading this post may think I’m like a lesbian but please don’t misunderstand I just really my best friend because nobody can replace my best friends.

This is Claire’s tumblr and her self-picture

September 24, 2010 My first post since my sophomore year

Final English Post

Wow, my final English post for my Sophomore year. Time passes by so fast, I didn’t notice it was my last blog post. Entering Sophomore year I was worried, liked always for English class because I am weak in English. WRITING & DISCUSSION, these two were my two weakest factors in English. Reflecting myself right now I think I improved a lot, my crappy essays become a sweet delicious cupcake and my discussion skills are improving day by day. Seriously, I need to thank Ms. Patterson for transforming me into an actual student who can write and it’s pretty good. All this time English class was my most boring class with boring reading and boring comprehension. However, Ms. Patterson’s class changed my view for English. Nowadays, I want English class, I’m expecting an interesting discussion, and lastly I enjoy making new thesis sentences for interesting essays. Even though I am weak in quizzes I still love English Class!!
