It has been very hard to get to a computer lately. First edmodo wouldn't let me on, then the school computers crashed, and now it's prom time and I have no working hours left! This is madness. I got the cover page done and the packet just needs the presentation outline..... which would be easier if I had a fnished presentation. I really need to find a day to do this. I'm about halfway through and it's getting harder to organize it all. But i'm sre it'll be fine. If I have the two weeks in june that I thought I did, i'll be perfect. I just want this to come out right. It would be a shame to miscommunicate how much I care about this subject just because I'm bad at presenting.

I wrote a whole post last friday and forgot to post it. Lately I haven't had anything to write about because it's all been organization and media searches.  I have 5 slides done. I need to make an outline for the rest of it. So how about this:

What is this project trying to do?

Why did I take this class?

What is neurology?

Research info


Where this will take me in the future/ how it changed my life

I'm getting the main questions together with all of their sub questions. Next I'm going to transcribe my interviews and organize the data into each category. While I'm doing that, I'll get some media files for the presentation. I printed out an outline to work from. Still working on the video. I haven't had time to finish it but I have a few weeks. It won't take long, just needs music. The files are there, I just need to pick one or two and mix them in neatly. This weekend will end with an organized set of data and I should be ready to begin the powerpoint by Tuesday.

All my research is done! I scrambled Monday night to finish it and now I'm going to organize everything. I can only do it in school for now because its all on my school file. I'll have to transfer it through edmodo. I messed with the audio levels on my video today and now I'm going to find some media for the presentation. I think I'm finally on track.

Ok change of plans. It turns out I'm farther behind than I anticipated. This presentation has to be done by the 29th of May. That's less than 3 weeks away. So this interview and the final research have to be done by the end of next week. I need about 10 sources on that question. I'll have to research this weekend and do the interview wednesday. Oh man.

I need to write more blogs. I know. It's been so hard to focus lately and I'm intimidated by the workload I have left. But I got the questions together and now I'm going to find some time for that interview. I'll call the doctor later today. From there, I'll either set up an interview or email him the questions. Today I'll finish the video (I forgot to add music) and tomorrow i'll reserach the last question. I plan on being done by June 1st and the 2 weeks after that will be for organizing the presentation.

So I planned on finishing the video today but I left my flash key at home and it had all of my music on it. The video is done besides that though. I might add some fades to make it prettier but for now I'm set on getting that final interview. Heres the plan:

1) find people
2) make questions up
3) research a bit on the last question
4) get all the interviews done
5) transcribe EVERYTHING I have ever done because I still haven't done that...

Working on number one today.
