Blog post #2: Reflections on WTS so far

Three highlights that I have experienced this year with What’s the Story is… One getting to meet new people and starting to create a connection with everyone in “What’s the Story” and continue to create connections. Two, working with a small group of people and talking about a film or a prompt that we are given and starting to understand the purpose of “What’s the Story.” It has been a lot of fun working with the same people for the last 3 weeks and getting closer with each of them. Three, going to Middlebury for the day and talk about what might happen for the rest of the school year, (the food was also really good) but being at Middlebury for the day and experiencing and understanding how “What’s the Story” is going to be like, was a lot of fun.  

My team for the Three Week Affinity Group Challenge has been going really well, I feel like we have been really productive. Even after some technical issues, we figured out how to make it work. We stayed on task and got all of the work done. We all took turns taking notes and we all were helping each other when we didn’t understand something or when we were trying to figure something out. I feel like we did really well with the challenge and we worked really well together. I also feel like we all feel very passionate about the same topic, and I think that it will be a lot of fun maybe working together for the rest of the year. So overall I think that our group did really well and we all are very excited about the rest of the year.  

Lastly, I don’t really have any questions since my sister went through the same process, but some questions that I have are: 

  • How long will the documentaries be? Is there a time limit?
  • What will we do with the films after we are done with them? 
  • Are we allowed to branch off and work with smaller groups of people? 

That’s it. I feel like this year is going to be very exciting and I am looking forward to continuing to create relationships with everyone and to work with all of you. These past three weeks have been a lot of fun and I am excited to see where this is going to go. I think that this group is going to be very impactful because we are all so passionate and it is a small group so we will be able to get more work done.
