Script:

Hey everyone! I’m Adam Shoemaker, a Biomedical Engineering Major from Valdosta, Georgia in Dr. Sturm’s English 1102 class: “Poetry, Painting, & Film in the New York School”. For most of my life, I’ve been pretty interested in music. I’ve messed around with a few instruments here and there, including this thing: (short melodica bit), but I have stuck with my trusty alto saxophone the longest. As a result, I ended up listening to many songs with my own instrument in it and eventually gained a taste for jazz music. New York City, in particular, is quite influential in jazz, with icons of the genre such as Thelonious Monk and Ella Fitzgerald growing up in the area. Just this past Thanksgiving, I actually visited New York City with my high school’s band, and I managed to get a glimpse of the city’s culture, including its artwork and music. Seeing this NYC-creativity firsthand truly excites me for this course in particular.
Out of the five modes in the WOVEN curriculum, I expect to face the most challenges with the “oral” mode, especially concerning the podcast in Artifact 2 since it’s mostly an oral presentation. I tend to initially struggle properly articulating my presentations, s-st-stuttering and stumbling over words, so that requires me to rehearse more times than I would prefer. As an example, it quite literally took me an entire night (as in sunset to sunrise) practicing my speech for my high school graduation, just to make it presentable. Who knows how many times I’ll rehearse this script? Anyway, I know that I can overcome these challenges this semester without it sounding like (sad melodica noises), but I just need to practice. I’m looking forward to my first semester at Tech! Adam Shoemaker, signing off.
