We’re back! It’s great to be back home to the warm temperatures instead of the cold. Other than being happy to be back home, it’s time to end the STN trip with a reflection on what we enjoyed, what stressed us out, and what we learned from the trip. This years trip was so much fun and was a way to end my last year in media.
This year we went to Nashville for a week and spent six days in Boston which seems kind of long but went by really fast. In both states we were mostly sightseeing around the town and heard a lot of country music in Nashville and rustic buildings in Boston. This years trip was really fun because I feel like we bonded moe on this trip because we are mostly seeing each other every morning right when we wake up and when we go to sleep.
The one thing about this trip that stressed us out was the regular team competitions and the Crazy 8’s because we all had to make a video and make a story that will relate to the topic given to us. Also time flies when you are frustrated too. This year’s competition felt pretty hard but when you start to film and edit the video then you feel a lot more better about how you might do. Even though you feel confident about winning and you don’t place then you just have to realize that losing is also winning because that how life goes.
I feel like I have been learning a lot from this trip because I’ve learned about friendship, teamwork, winning and losing, history, etc. This trip taught me a lot because I have gotten closer wit my classmates which really helped us get through the competitions even if we stressed out a little. I also learned about winning and losing because I lost in both competitions and that was kind of heartbreaking for my last year, but at volleyball practice my coaches told my teammates and I that, “WE ALL LOSE TOGETHER AS A TEAM”.
This years trip was a great way to end my last year in media and a great way to move on. I feel like this trip was also a great way to get together as a class and learn that we might need teamwork to help us. Thanks to everyone who gave donations, came and bought breakfast tickets, etc, also thank you to our teacher and our fun and enjoyable chaperones/ Parents.
