Writing three different vignette's about my life and creating a small video for it was honestly the most stressful but the most fun out of all my writings thus far. The only reason it was stressful was because the laptop I had at home was not able to have any Microsoft office instruments. So I had to run around to the library and internet cafe's to be able to get the whole thing done. It was stressful but the running around was in a way part of the fun. Another reason why I believe I enjoyed this type of vignette writing is because it gave me an opportunity to put me feelings and experiences to a paper which is not something that I was usually taught to do. I was taught in high school to read a book then write about it. It made most of my writing seem flat and lifeless.
Writing the three vignettes was the easiest writing I had ever had to do because I was basically retelling something that I experienced. It was like as if I was talking to someone only I had to write it down as well. The harder part was picking what to write about. I most likely read the list of options a good ten times or more before I made a final decision. Once the three vignettes were written, converting it into a video seemed much easier. At that point, all I had to do was find pictures and music that matched with whatever topic I was discussing. I had never made a video using a PowerPoint before. The only videos I had made before this were the kind that you just record on your phone. Once everything was done and organized creating a web page for it was the next step.
When creating the web page, I believed that it was an easy task. I had all the different elements on my flash drive all that was left to do was to piece it together, like a puzzle, and press submit. The most challenging part was the how to piece everything together. I am not the most technologically saVvy person on the planet so I had to ask for help constantly from people around me, I also had to Google a lot of stuff. In the end, I believe creating my web page was a success and not too bad looking if I do say so myself. I even learned a few new tricks to do using a computer.
Although it does not compare to my ending PowerPoint before it was turned into a video. I thought I did everything perfect, all the elements were present and it looked great. The songs I had included were accurate to the feelings I was trying to portray in each slide. Sadly, when converting to video there were some glitches that occurred so not all the songs were able to be present. It still continues to be the part of the web page that I am the proudest of.
