When walking through the Media Depot I was amazed at the amount of resources that were available. The people in the Media Depot were extremely nice and very resourceful. When working on the video project, I will be able to go to the Media Depot and receive the help needed. The resources such as the green screen room, the recording studios and computer lab can help me to create a well done movie. I am able to stand in front of the green screen and shoot a video. Also the people at the Media Depot will be able to help me use Adobe Premier and iMovie. These two programs can help me easily create a movie for later on in the year. By having these resources so readily available, I will be able to create a well done movie, that looks professional yet creative.

Another reason people use water bottles is to keep up with the times. Millions of people walk around with identical looking water bottles or brands of water. It is almost a sign of uniformity. The fact that some people walk around with water bottles means that maybe that individual should walk around with one as well. It gives people the sense of belonging, especially in a large crowd.

These are only some of the reasons that people desire to carry around water bottles.
