Did Someone Say Digital Storytelling as a Course?!

I did not choose this course; the course chose me, and I almost missed it!

In planning and registering for classes, my main goal is always to compile 5 classes in one to two days of class per week instead of having classes all week. It gives me more mental space. After realizing that one of my elective courses needed to be dropped, I spent hours seeking a course that would remotely interest me and teach me something of actual use, and now, here we are.

My initial expectations of this course lead me to imagine myself becoming an internet magician, and so far, it is still how I feel.

I have been creating, that is: drawing, writing, mixing, dreaming, and envisioning since I can remember, but with the progress and changes happening in our time, especially in matters relating the internet, I have discovered some insecurities and have also found myself doubting if I can survive or keep up with it all. This course, I truly believe will help me assert myself optimistically.

During our class’ introduction, I knew I made the right choice. In between professor Seslow’s warm welcome, and the discussion of the course’s description, expectations, and goals, I knew this course was worth committing to.

In comparison to my other class?

Although I do appreciate my other courses, most of their dynamic is lacking. I can understand that after X number of years, teaching just becomes a part of a professor’s routine and/or lifestyle, however, as the world is changing, so should one’s desire to evolve and find new ways to motivate and stimulate.

Potential is essential and time is unforgiving. I see this course as a gateway to internet unity and equality. It doesn’t matter who you are, what your “tale of woe” might be, we all have something to say and what’s to be said is important.

Welcome all,
to Digital Storytelling, where you are valid and heard.

What Internet Happiness Sounds Like

Hi, everyone!

My name is Demi Bazán, that is, BUH-ZON, and I promise Demi isn’t short for anything. My friends call me Dee, Dems, Demigod or Bazán depending on the mood and whether or not I’ve crossed them.
Since the age of 13, I have been creating deep house playlists on SoundCloud and although I have never sought to gain any recognition for it, I will share this with you as an introductory of what lives on in my head during the times where you would think I am simply sitting in silence.

I have never been one to spend much time surfing the web, but when I do, I create playlists like PERVIOLA, my latest creation, which will set you in a Purple mood.

I created PERVIOLA in January while I took a short trip back to New York, in the hopes that it would uplift my mood during gloomy and cloudy winter days, and that it did. I hope it can uplift yours in a dark day!
