This week has been full of crew work and of course I was here for mostly all of it! I didn’t get any stories this week which was actually quite convenient for me because I have had to begin moving out of my apartment. But don’t underestimate crew work, because it is WORK my friend. In addition to the weeks crew work, I have gotten to begin working on the Entertainment show we are working on producing. I really want to be a host because I think I am a good conversationalist and I have a pretty good sense of humor, if I do say so myself.
This week I was able to host Post script after the Zoning Board of Appeals meeting. It turned out great. I did notice I made a few mistakes but nothing major, just small things to work on like:
1. I realized once I was up there I couldn’t look at my note cards to see my what next question was, so I had a hard time focusing on what he was saying because I was trying to remember what I was asking and in what order without being too distracting.
2. I didn’t smile enough and I kept bobbing my head to let the subject know that I was in fact listening… It looked really awkward….
3. And last, I couldn’t stop um for the life of me. The worst part about this is that I literally never say um when I speak. So when I got home I was just like “REALLY, WHITNEY?!”
Luckily I’m my own worst critic and everyone else said I did a great job. I look forward to my next appearance on TV and hope you all are watching.
Until then, Sending peace, love and positive vibes your way
