Convo #1…In Wells Library (I think it was a casual interview) Girl #1: I like to go out, but as far as smoking and drinking it’s not for me. Girl #2: Ya I understand. (laughs) Girl #1: I like to have fun but you know, not in that way. Girl #2: It’s a small world. Do you live off campus or on campus? Girl #1: I live in foster. I lived there last year too. Girl #2: Aw really? Oh that’s where my little sister lives. It definitely used to be a party spot. Girl #1: Ya, they changed that this year. It is still lenient, but still stricter than last year. Girl #2: So what are some goals that you have for yourself, like your GPA and other things that you want to work on? Girl #1: Well, my GPA is a 3.1 so that is one thing that I want to work on! (laughs) I don’t want to let it get down to a 3.0 at all! I want to get more involved in a sense but “Ladies First” takes a lot out of me. I know I want to do more community service to look good on resumes and experience. I don’t have a lot of time but probably more than others. Girl #2: I see. Okay so what are some things that inspire you? Girl #1: I don’t know what inspires me, I think working in a soup kitchen and breast cancer awareness is big for me. I just want to help others, but not put too much on myself. But this is a good time to get started. Girl #2: Okay so what about next Tuesday this time? Girl #1: Oh ya that’s fine. Girl #2: Just let me know, Monday or Wednesday is fine too. Let me know if you want to study, go grab something to eat, anything. We can figure out your application then.
Convo#2…At apartment study lounge Girl #1‐ Yum! What are you eating? Girl #2‐ Uhh, well it’s Lean Cuisine. Something with pasta and chicken. It has green peppers, onions, and some red sauce. I put it in a bowl to make it look like I actually cook to make myself feel better. Girl#1‐ Ohhh (laughs) Well, it smells good. Boy #1‐ Wow, unbelievable. Girl#1‐ You’re unbelievable. (Awkward silence) Girl #1‐ So, what are you guys doing tonight? Getting drunk? Boy #1‐ No, just chilling. Have you got your new fake ids yet? Girl#1‐ No, hopefully by Saturday though. It’s Brandalyn’s birthday tomorrow! Boy#1‐ Oh really. Fun, we will go out. Girl#1‐ Oh, by the way I am mad at you. Boy#1‐ Whatever, you have no reason to be. Girl #1‐Uh, ya I do. You came to our apartment, ate all of our pizza and didn’t pay for it. Boy#1‐ Uh huh, ya, ya. Girl#1‐ We just wanted to visit you for a few minutes. Boy#1‐ I had a paper to do and you wouldn’t just stay a few minutes. You never stay a few minutes. I didn’t get done with it until two in the morning. Girl#1‐ Fine, I’m just going to sit here with an upset look on my face until you say sorry. Boy#1‐ Whatever.
