The Inkblot 2016-17: Issue 3

Two more pages. Another layout experience under my belt. This one done in the thick of holiday hype. Often times, layout week and InkTV filming fall at the same exact time. This being another one of those weeks, it required a lot of commitment and time management to complete everything on deadline.


InkTV November 2016

Another episode on an extremely strict deadline. The turn around between the October and November episodes was virtually nonexistent. November is a month full of breaks and tests. This episode was produced in around 2 weeks. The bulk of the work was done the week of my midterm exams, so I had to split myself between studying and InkTV. My usually pristine organizational skills were put to the test when we had to re-film the studio portion of the show. But I wouldn’t be able to learn all that I do if I didn’t make mistakes.

The Inkblot 2016-17: Issue 2

The arts section of the Inkblot was only in its second year, and already it was growing to such a sizable staff that my editor-in-chiefs believed it warranted two pages in issue 2. This was the third issue I laid out, and two pages seemed a little daunting. I’m proud that I contributed to building the arts section, so I knew I could only welcome the new challenge.

InkTV September 2016

Starting off my junior year fully immersed with co-curricular activities, I tried my hand producing my first episode of InkTV, and on a strict deadline. With just a couple of weeks to put together a full news broadcast, my co-producer and I took control. It was a rocky start. Figuring out how to use the TriCaster in our TV studio was tough – and I’m still learning more every day – but we completed the entire episode on deadline. I couldn’t be happier or prouder producing and anchoring InkTV.

Summer concerts become right of passage for teens

Like learning to drive or filling out college applications, there are plenty of coming-of-age rituals that teenagers from across the world welcome (or endure) as they embark on their journey into adulthood. Still, teenagers from Monmouth County might experience additional rights of passage: that first time driving in summer-induced beach traffic down the Garden State Parkway, caving into the Playa Bowls health craze, but most notably, summer concerts.

Kendall Jenner graces Vogue’s famous September issue

Back to school commercials. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The return of seasonal Starbucks drinks. Each evoke feelings of familiarity as autumn begins its annual reign on weather and fashion alike. Yet the September issue of magazines, such as Vogue, have earned a reputation for predicting fall fashion trends, making their covers especially important in the fashion and modeling community, said Jessica Schiffer of WhoWhatWear.
