This week I got to know the intricate ways I can use my video camera. I have not figured out how to use all the features yet but I will keep working on it. I plan to make and edit a short film about my dogs. In this way I will learn how to use my camera, figure out how to put it onto a DVD and edit it, and get a short film of my puppies.

This week I had to switch my project because the organization I wanted to work with said they didn't have the staff to handle my project. When I explained that my purpose was to fix that very problem they politely told me to find another project or organization but I could still volunteer. I was disappointed that I did not get to work with dogs, but Lisa let me in on her project so now I get to work with Lisa. :)
This week I learned that communication is very important in any business of exchange. The less one person understands what they are to do the more confused the people he or she is trying to explain will become. I have also learned that my project is more complicated to explain than I originally thought. I also learned that the more I prepared for the actual explanation the better I felt, but when I started talking I became nervous and became flustered. In conclusion, I am not very good at talking to people I don't know and are older than me.
