the reason i am taking digital studies 101 is because i want to minor in the program. and the reason i am studying the digital world is because i feel so insecure about my lack of understanding with digital technology. this may be the type-a in me, but, i am always great or moderately good at the academic tracks i have pursued. but the digital world feels so unattainable, at least at my present state of capabilities. thus, my presence in the class, the course readings, and even our domain & digital identity section have made me learn in a way that i have not learned in school since the third grade, when i moved to the united states of america and had to learn english.
