Reflection on Morgan Spurlock

I had fun at the Spurlock lecture on Thursday, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I think I could have. David Denninger mentioned at the beginning of the semester that he enjoyed reporting on the Honor's Convocation; he noted that normally he would have been bored, but taking notes kept his interest. For me, I was distracted by my constant writing. I probably would have attended the event whether we were instructed to go or not, but I wish I just could have gone and enjoyed myself.

Several times, I forgot that I was covering a story and would then have to stop and think about what had been said withing in the last few moments. This took me away from the action/entertainment on stage. Overall the experience wasn't terrible, but I would have much rather attended the lecture for pure entertainment purposes.

Regardless of my feelings about the actual reporting, I feel my article turned out well. I went to my room and worked on it, but I wasn't happened with my finished project, so I went to Friday's workshop. I reall wanted to skip class (sorry, Dr. Jerz), but I really wanted to turn in work I was really proud. I've worked hard on all my articles, but this was really important to me.

The workshop was a HUGE help. There weren't many people there, so we got one-on-one attention. It was definitely a terrific experience. I recommend to everyone to attend at least one workshop--it's worth it.
