Yep! You heard it here first, folks. I, Brooke Melissa Levine, was once an aspiring Audio Engineer. I even won a scholarship for it. I know, it’s crazy.
So, anyway, when we were talking about this assignment in class, I was very excited to get started!
If anyone is reading this, I would like to do a little activity. Please listen to the clip. Each sound describes an activity I do in my day. As you’re listening, write down what you think my day looks like. Then, when you’re done, go t0 the description below and see if you were right! No peeking!
Okay, so here’s everything you need to know about my audio!
-Morning Sounds: Obviously, the alarm, the morning music, and the rooster mean I wake up. Aways a good thing!
-Dog Barking: Again, pretty obvious. I have a dog. His name is Chutzpah. In the morning, I let him outside so he can ya know…do his business. Then I put him in his little area and I’m on my way.
-Driving Sounds: I drive a lot. School, work, and boyfriend are all 50 miles away so I drive an average of 100 miles a day. Oh yeah, that’s a lot of oil changes.
-Bueller: Most mornings, I have class. My classes aren’t actually as boring as Ben Stein’s class but school at 8 am is exhausting no matter what.
-Driving Sounds: Then I’m back in my car and on my way to work.
-May I help you?: That’s a sound clip from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. I don’t work in the food industry but I work in retail. Worse: I work with pregnant women. HELLO HORMONES! So, I am constantly arguing with customers. Super fun!
-Driving Sounds: Back on the road!
-Rush Hour Traffic: I commute from Livingston to Howell at 6pm. That takes about an hour and a half.
-Hercules, He could go all the way, Home Sweet Home: Driving home in rush hour traffic in NJ on the Parkway is a battle. I need as much motivation as I can get in order to make it Home Sweet Home!
-Be Our Guest: Arriving home to a meal is about the most magical thing in the world.
-20 Minutes Later, I can’t believe I ate the whole thing: Pop Pop Fizz Fizz Oh! What a relief it is! I scarf down my dinner because I’m so hungry and then spend a few minutes questioning what the hell I’m doing with my life.
-I’m Tired, So Long: I’m in the car at 6:30 am and home by 7:30 pm. I’m fricken tired!
-This concludes our broadcast day!: Goodnight Y’all! This chick is going to sleep!
**As of right now, I cannot figure out how to upload my sounds to the YWP site. If I can’t figure it out by tonight, I will ask how during class.
