One of the most surprising and horrific experiences in my life was when someone knocked over a tripod with a 60D on it. It scared the bajeebees out of me. 60D’s are a really expensive camera, so when I saw it falling, I was not happy. Luckily, the tripod was caught and all was safe in the universe. The last thing you won’t to do is brake a thousand dollar camera, so I was horribly surprised when I saw it falling.
A good surprise I got was when we won fourth place in the crazy eights STN competition. I was really happy because in my last year in the class, we won an award. That’s a great way to end out my middle school years. I also didn’t know if we would place at all. Last year our film team didn’t place at all, so this was a pleasant surprise.
The third surprise was not all that great. It was that we did not win at all in Olelo. This was kind of surprising because this was the first time that our class did not even win once at Olelo. Its kind of sad that we broke the CKTV streak. We did have three finalists, so even though we did not win, it was not all bad.
These were a few of the surprises that I got this year. They were some good ones, and some bad ones. A thousand dollar camera almost breaking and not winning at Olelo were two of the surprises that I could have done without, but winning at STN was awesome. This was a great year and I’m sad that it will be my last in the class.
