Shorthorn Shots of the Week 10/24

Another week of challenges at The Shorthorn has past and I'm getting ready for more. I still can't get used to our new production schedule but it does have its benefits at times. This week, I explored local parks for outdoor activities, listened to a celebrity chef talk about his inspirations, tried to capture "Red Fever" and finally got a coach to smile. I was working on a LARPing, or live action role playing, story with a video for next week but huge storms on Saturday rained us out. I'm trying to pace myself with video since I somewhat burned myself out a bit at the beginning of the semester and I am trying to focus on quality over quantity. Until next week, enjoy.
