Man, I feel like such an idiot. I was so excited about recording my podcast for the remediating project and it seemed like it was all coming together and BAM. I didn’t save it correctly. There were like no directions for how to save audio files onto your computer from the manual; it only told you how to upload them. I figured it wouldn’t be that difficult and I saved the files as a shortcut on my desktop. That was the wrong thing to do. When I went to send the files to my email so that I could edit them on GarageBand in the lab, it said that there was no file available. Of course, this induced a panic because I had done the entire interview plus my own talking parts already. So after speaking with Naomi, I decided to go to the tech deck to see if they could somehow do some butt-saving for me. Well, they couldn’t. So on Thursday I had a full-blown freak-out because of how much work I had to do for all of my classes. Psych250: Exam on Monday, Psych 280: 8 page research paper due Tuesday, Psych 457: 4 videos to code and an article to read, and now Writing200: rerecord entire interview and leave voice comments. It just seemed like a lot. But, over the weekend I studied for my exam, finished most of my research paper, re-recorded my voice parts for my podcast (re-interview is tonight!), and finished the videos for Psych457. It was a busy weekend to say the least but I feel so much better.
I have now learned how to save audio files onto my computer. Its about the easiest thing on the planet. If I had dragged the file into “My Music” instead of the desktop, a break-down could have been avoided. But, it will only feel that much better when I have it all done.
