The perks of being a head worrier

Silvana Bautista, Web Co-Editor

Working on the package was harder than I expected it to be. After going through with it, I fully understand the role of “head-worrier.” It was a stressful but fun experience.

My group and I worked on an editorial spread for the upcoming issue of The Pinion. We each wrote our own views on class importance. It also included an interview with the school registrar, Osa Tui.

At first, it was hard to get started because we did not know what to write about. Once we decided what to write, writing and reporting took longer than I expected so I did not have time to closely edit the work. However, during that time, I was able to get to know the Newswriting 1 students.

I learned that it is important to know who you’re working with because communication was important. I feel more comfortable talking to and working with Max, James and Valerin. I also learned that it is important to have strict deadlines, especially since we were given a choice of when the different components of the package are due. (The complete package itself had its own due date). I would have wanted the first drafts earlier than I got them so that I would have more time to look at them.

It was a fulfilling experience that taught me the importance of teamwork and time management.
