The digital story — for me — is perhaps the most challenging assignment that I have thus come across this entire semester, and it’s definitely taken its toll. I hope this doesn’t sound like I’m complaining here, but it was definitely really difficult trying to find a topic to focus on and translating that story into something meaningful. I’ve actually had conversations with my roommate about my digital story and have asked her for some ideas on what to write, and I’ve realized that I simply don’t have any substantial past experiences to draw upon and write about. When my roommate suggested that I take a memory from my childhood and building upon that, my mind went blank. I don’t remember much from my childhood, and even the little snippets I do recall aren’t quite substantial to build a script on. I feel completely lost on how to approach this assignment, and I’m not quite sure whether or not my current topic on how food became a means for me to reach out and connect with the world is a good topic for the digital story. Currently, I feel like it lacks an emotional element to it, and there are also additional challenges with finding multimedia (pictures and videos, specifically) to enhance the story. Hopefully, however, all works well in the end.
