Day 1: In Bryson Tillers song “Exchange” he states “Back and forth, from Louisville to Lexington, mileage.” Well its suppose to take 1 hour 18 minutes to get from Eastside Technical Center Crowne Plaza in Louisville. With wrecks and  a tremendous amount of traffic stops it took us a lot longer.

Finally we arrived at Crowne Plaza in Louisville.

After being allowed a short time to change and get ready for the opening ceremony it was time for all Skills USA contestants to report to the huge ball room for the opening ceremony. When we came back to our hotel room we watched Kobe Bryant phenomenal last game where he scored 60 points.

Day 2: The second day for the broadcasting team was going to be a boring one as our competition was moved to the next day. So today we just had orientation at 3.  So today we had a lot of free time and visited St. Matthews mall. Unknown-1

Then we went to

Day 3: Competition Day!!!

Today I will be leaving around 9:00 PM to go to my basketball game and will not be there for awards day.

We will have a long day today we have to get up at 7:30 and be down stairs at 8:45 for preparation for our broadcast. We spend two hours preparing for the broadcast. There is lunch were we eat ham sandwiches, cookies, and drink soda.  We head off to PRP (Pleasure Ridge Park) looks like a jail almost. We walk in the school and go to the broadcasting class which was awesome. I feel that we did well and won hands down. There was a couple of mistakes which happens but the other team scored horribly on there exam. Also, the other team had no clue on how to use graphics and other things.


 

After thinking for the whole weekend that we was in 1st Place I found out that we came in second. No one texted me or anything. I didn’t come Monday I was too tired after coming back from Nashville. So that Wednesday I got my Silver Medal and was suppose to get a Portable Charger …. Who knows though……. It was a good time all in all.
