Recap of 4/3-4/12

There was a lot of new information this week with this being my first co-op and having never had experience in a professional industry. I spent a lot of time trying to feel things out, but tools like the Dayquest table in Airtable have done a lot to help me orient myself.

The first I attempted was a draft for a landing page. Both me and Kamellia were assigned to this so I thought we could get a great start if we worked together. Over the weekend we got to work and laid out our plans for the website.

Once I got a solid start on the website I felt more confident tackling my other tasks. I didn’t know what a lot of the stuff I was asked to do was, but ChatGPT was a really helpful resource in learning what I had to do and what steps I needed to take. I started with the draft for a partner email, following along with the steps laid out by ChatGPT, and then took on the rest of my tasks due today the same way. I feel much more confident in my ability to complete my tasks now that I’ve gotten through the first bunch.

Plans for the Coming Week

This week, I plan to move through my work at a much quicker pace now that I’ve gotten a first taste of what I need to do. My priority is of course, the tasks with the soonest due date, but I also plan to start on some tasks with later due dates to stay on top of those.

One task I’m really excited about is starting on the fairy character’s backstory. I didn’t expect to be doing any creative writing for this co-op, so that’s a task I’m really looking forward to this week.

Another task I’m looking forward to is further work on the script for the promotional video. This past winter I took Screenwriting I and loved it WAY more than I thought I would. I absolutely plan to put what I learned in that class to use and deliver an actual script for this video.

Robots and Lesbians and OH GOD OH FU-

This Sunday the second season of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury dropped and the episode was great, me and my girlfriend are already having a great time and also really terrified for what’s to come. I’ve been rewatching the ending credits animation on repeat because of how much foreshadowing seems to be happening, and I am downright terrified!
