Part of my Professional Presentations class is deciding other extra assignments to help you make enough points to get the grade you want. This assignment is me telling a story in the form of a video. I had fun remembering this story and making this script. I had a great time editing it all together too.
Here is my script for the video:
Possible stories to tell:
- First time skiing on Dreamcatcher
- The time I met David Archuletta
- Date with Ivan
Hey! I’ve got a story for you. Many years ago when I was in high school, there was this boy named Ivan. He was a bit quiet and stayed to himself most of the time. One day I wished him a good day on me way out of school and that’s when everything changed. After that I would notice him staring at me from across the cafeteria and he would do that the whole time we were both in there. That, I could handle to an extent, but then he started getting the courage to walk up to me and drop me little notes every once in a while. They would have little poems that he wrote on them, or questions he was too timid to ask. This much was fine enough, but it was starting to get to the point where it was creepy.
He finally got enough courage to ask me on a double date, by way of note might I add… on the day of the date we went to a friend’s house for dinner. The plan was for each couple to make a part of the meal then eat together. Making the food went well enough, but once we sat down to eat, he pulled out a book that he put together titled “date etiquette,” and started reading from it. He would skip through the whole book and just read the parts that talked about how a woman should act on a date. How a woman should treat a man, how she should say goodnight, how she accepts, etc.
We did some other stuff for the rest of the night, but that was the most extreme part of it. Weeks later he continued to leave me notes on my car, walk up to me and give me notes, very awkwardly, and send me emails. After everything the semester ended and I was free to not have to worry about him anymore. One day a week or so after school ended my family was preparing to go boating, this included some of my cousins too. I was in my swimsuit preparing to leave and I heard the doorbell. As I went to open the door my cousins along with some of my siblings came running through the back door yelling, “no! Don’t open it Amber” as I was opening the door. On the other side was Ivan. I stood there in shock and I saw his eyes go from my face down to my legs and back again with a little smirk on his face.
He was there to ask me a question about one of his notes that he left me. I was honest and told him I had no idea what he was talking about and with that he handed me another one and left. The weird thing is he didn’t have a car in the driveway, he just started walking down the street and around the corner. I didn’t see for myself, but according to my “ninja” siblings and cousins, he went around the corner to a big creepy van that apparently had his family members in it…
Yeah… that was a strange time in my life…
