When I first enrolled in English 2269, I was unsure of what exactly it was that we would be doing in this course. From a brief reading of the syllabus, I knew that the class was going to be primarily project-based, which was something I was used to after taking an honors digital photography class last year.
I hadn’t really heard anything bad about the class prior to signing up; however, I had also not heard anyone praise the class either. It was listed as a prerequisite for some of my other journalism courses, so if I am being completely honest, that was my reasoning for taking this course. Although it was a requirement, it was one I didn’t mind having to take, as the course material looked interesting and I thought that, in this class, I would have the opportunity to learn about a variety of digital mediums.
A Day in the Life Audio Story: "Don't Tread on Me"
Passion is defined simply as “a strong feeling of enthusiasm or excitement for something or about doing something” by the Meriam-Webster online dictionary. However, anyone who has ever felt passionate about anything in his or her life—whether that passion is for music, athletics, or even sculpting corncob pipes—knows that a passion is so much more than just feeling strongly about something. A passion can be an intense motivator, a beacon of hope, or a cause that reaffirms a reason for living. A passion is something that is fostered through experience and nurtured through hard work and dedication. And sometimes, a passion is something that you would fight for and defend to your last breath.
But what happens when someone or something tries to discourage you from pursuing this passion? What would you do if the possibility of fulfilling your lifelong dream was suddenly no longer under your control?
This is exactly what my audio story is all about.
