For this assignment, I originally had a different idea that was a very boring and uninteresting story. However, right when I went to record, I decided to change my entire project. I wanted to convey a message that is more thoughtful and meaningful.
Over the winter break, I lost my best friend and, basically, sister-in-law. She committed suicide on December 16th and this audio assignment is a recap of the day that I found out. There is a lot missing from this story because it is hard to say everything that I was feeling in that moment and the moments after. There is not really a conclusion, or resolution, to this story. It doesn’t really end. It just stops.
That is what I wanted to show everyone. When this happens to someone you love, the hurt never actually goes away and you just have to learn a new normal. There is not resolution to this story because I have to live with it everyday and I wanted to show you all that. So many people out there have to live without their loved ones and I just wanted to give a glimpse into what it’s like to find out you lost someone you love.
