intro to documentary production
I think I try to follow my intuition pretty often even if I don't always realize it. A lot of times I make decisions based on a gut feeling that it's right and have trouble explaining how that process worked to other people. I definitely did this when I picked my college. There were other factors to choosing UC, but the main reason was purely based on my intuition that this was the school I needed to attend. I recognized that it was my intuition when I started trying to talk to other people about my decision, especially my family. It had a bunch of different qualities I was looking for in a school. It was technically out of state, it was affordable, and it had a smaller campus that was easy to navigate without driving to different buildings. The main reason I decided to go to UC, though, is because of a feeling I kept coming back to. UC was the first school I visited and I knew on my tour that I wanted to go there, even if I didn't acknowledge it yet. I was still holding onto going out west. I still want to go west more than anything, but I felt such a strong feeling about UC that it made the decision to stay in the Midwest for a while longer easy. I did question my intuition with this decision. I applied to 10 different schools and got into 7 of them. The others were all more expensive, but with the ones I got to visit, I never had the same feeling as I did with Cincinnati. I also didn't know anyone going here, which made it harder to commit so readily. I went to smaller schools growing up with a lot of the same people since Kindergarten. While I was excited to get away from high school and go somewhere new, it was hard to fully follow my intuition right away when all my friends were going to other places. Following my intuition feels really great. It's really hard to explain to other people why I make certain choices, but they usually end up working out or at least teaching me a lot. I also feel a lot more confident in my decision when I feel like it's what I'm supposed to be doing. Since I'm generally a nervous and anxious person, this confidence really helps me moving forward.
