Lawson  Sitterding   Assignment  #3     Conversation  #1     Girl  #1:  “I  can’t  believe  the  campus  didn’t  close…everyone  else  is  and  we  aren’t.”     Girl  #2:  I  know,  Butler,  IUPUI,  UIndy,  EVERYONE  is  out.   Girl  #1  I  don’t  think  Ball  State  got  out  though,  did  they?     Girl  #2:  No,  I  don’t  think  so.  My  friend  goes  there  and  she  was  pissed.  They  got   weather  worse  than  ours.  She  sent  me  a  picture  this  morning  complaining   about  it.     Girl  #1:  We  picked  a  really  great  school.  Really  great.  Stupid  classes.  Everything  in   Monroe  County  is  closed  except  our  freakin’  campus.       Girl  #2:  Yeah,  I  know.  How  fitting  I’m  transferring  next  year!     Girl  #1:  You’re  transferring?     Girl  #2:  Yeah.       Girl  #1:  To  where?     Girl  #2:  Umm,  UNC-­‐Wilmington.  They  have  an  awesome  film  school.     Girl  #1:  Seriously?     Girl#2:  Yep,  they  have  the  biggest  film  production  facility  outside  of  California  so  I   can’t  really  pass  that  up.  IU  doesn’t  really  even  have  a  specified  film  school.     Girl  #1:  That  sounds  awesome.  You  have  to  do  what  you  have  to  do  I  guess.     Girl  #2:  Yeah…10  minutes  from  the  beach  too!  Can’t  argue  with  that.     Girl  #1:  Lucky!  So  have  you  gotten  in  and  everything?     Girl  #2:  Well,  I  sent  my  transcripts  and  my  application  last  week,  so  yeah,  I  am  just   waiting  to  hear  back.       Girl  #1:  So  if  you  get  accepted  you  are  for  sure  going?     Girl  #2:  Yeah,  I  am  about  90%  sure.  It’s  just  not  something  I  can  pass  up.  It  is  like  the   film  capital  of  the  US  outside  of  California.  I  don’t  want  to  be  in  California   anyways,  so  it’s  perfect.  


Girl  #1:  That’s  true.  What  movies  have  they  shot  there.     Girl  #2:  Um,  they  shot  Nights  in  Rodanthe  there,  Cape  Fear,  and  they  shot  Dawson’s   Creek  and  One  Tree  Hill.       Girl  #1:  Holy  crap,  One  Tree  Hill?     Girl  #2:  Yeah,  right  there  in  Wilmington!  Isn’t  that  awesome?     Girl  #1:  Yes!  That’s  impressive.  Are  you  getting  an  apartment  or  what?     Girl  #2:  Yeah,  I’m  waiting  to  hear  back  from  my  cousin.  She  might  be  living  down   there  with  me.  She  is  in  school  at  Ivy  Tech  in  Indianapolis  with  her  boyfriend   and  I  guess  they  aren’t  doing  very  well  so  I  extended  the  invite.  It  would  be   cool  to  have  her  there  with  me  ya  know…someone  I  know.  I  wouldn’t  be  like   alone,  and  not  knowing  anyone.       Girl  #1:  Yeah  true.       Girl  #2:  Yep,  so  I’ve  been  looking  at  apartments  in  Wilmington  for  a  few  weeks  now.   They’re  so  damn  expensive!  They’re  like  administrative  fee,  security  fee,   priority  list  fee,  blah,  blah,  blah.  It’s  never  ending.       Girl  #1:  Tell  me  about  it.  I  live  in  a  decent  apartment  here  and  I  still  have  400  dollar   rent.  And  I’m  NOT  10  minutes  from  the  beach.  So  it’s  probably  better  than   you  think.  How  much  is  tuition?     Girl  #2:  Umm,  it’s  $16,000  for  the  year  and  then  apartment  rent  and  stuff.  So  it  isn’t   too  incredibly  bad.  Especially  when  you  compare  it  to  what  people  pay  to   come  here  out  of  state.       Girl  #1:  Oh  yeah  I  know,  Monica  pays  like  $35,000  a  year  here.  So  that  really  isn’t   that  bad  at  all.       Girl  #2:  Well  it  still  feels  like  a  lot.  I  sort  of  feel  guilty  throwing  this  on  my  parents   when  my  sister  is  getting  married  next  year  too.  That’s  not  really  a  good   time  to  say  oh  by  the  way  I  want  to  transfer  out  of  state.       Girl  #1:  Well  you  have  to  do  what  you  have  to  do.  If  it’s  going  to  give  you  a  better   shot  at  getting  the  type  of  job  you  want  then,  I’m  sure  they’ll  support  you.       Girl  #2:  Yeah,  they  are.  I  just  still  feel  guilty.  It  just  makes  sense,  ya  know,  their  film   program  is  so  competitive.  Like  if  you  take  the  prerequisite  and  get  a  B   minus  then  you  still  have  to  apply  to  get  in  to  the  program,  and  if  you  get   less  than  that,  you  just  flat  out  do  not  get  in  and  you  don’t  get  another  


chance.  If  you  get  a  B  plus  and  higher  you  are  automatically  allowed  into  the   program.     Girl  #1:  Yeah,  that’s  exactly  how  Kelley  is.       Girl  #2:  Yeah,  so  their  film  program  is  like  the  Kelley  of  IU.  That’s  a  good  way  to   describe  it!             Conversation  #2:     Girl  #1:  So  yesterday  my  professor  said  something  to  me  about  having  dinner  and   wine  with  him  and  his  wife.     Girl  #2:  WHAT?     Girl  #1:  Yeah,  he  said  I’m  a  gifted  student  and  he’d  like  to  talk  to  me  about  doing   research  and  some  other  stuff  I  didn’t  understand.       Girl  #2:  What  did  you  say  to  him?     Girl  #1:  Well  I  said  sure,  what  else  are  you  supposed  to  say  when  your  professor   says  that  to  you?     Girl  #2:  Oh,  I  don’t  know…maybe  that  it  isn’t  very  appropriate?     Girl  #1:  I  can’t  say  that!  His  intentions  probably  aren’t  to  be  a  creep!  He’s  married.     Girl  #2:  How  do  you  know  that,  first  of  all  he’s  gorgeous!  You  can’t  tell  me  it  didn’t   cross  your  mind!       Girl  #1:  Well  maybe  for  like  a  second.       Girl  #2:  SEE!     Girl  #1:  It’s  not  like  having  dinner  with  he  AND  HIS  WIFE  is  going  to  actually  mean   anything.  Besides,  we  will  be  talking  about  school.  It  isn’t  going  to  mean   anything.     Girl  #2:  HA,  ok.  We  will  see  about  that  I  guess.  I  better  be  hearing  about  every  single   thing  that  happens.       Girl  #1:  Nothing  is  going  to  happen!  Get  that  through  your  head.  What  part  of  with   he  and  his  wife,  do  you  not  understand?      


Girl  #2:  I  don’t  know.  I  just  have  never  heard  of  this  before.  None  of  my  friends  have   ever  gone  to  their  profs  houses  for  dinner  before.       Girl  #2:  Well  I  haven’t  exactly  gone  to  a  professor’s  house  for  dinner  either.  I  have   no  idea  what  to  expect.       Girl  #1:  (chuckles)  See,  you  ARE  thinking  about  it.       Girl  #2:  No  I  am  not.  Nothing  is  going  to  happen.  It  is  unethical  and  against  the  rules.   He  would  get  fired!     Girl  #1:  Obviously  he  doesn’t  care  about  getting  fired,  you’re  eating  dinner  with  him.       Girl  #2:  I  am  a  grad  student.  I‘m  sure  it  happens  more  than  we  know.     Girl  #1:  Maybe…but  still—grad  student  or  not,  it’s  still  weird  and  you’re  still  secretly   hoping  something  happens  with  him!     Girl  #2:  Ok,  this  conversation  is  over.  Shut  up.       Girl  #1:  (Laughs)  Yeah,  cause  you  know  I’m  right.  Just  say  it.     Girl  #2:  No,  cause  you  aren’t.  I  am  going  to  have  dinner  with  he  and  his  wife  and   have  a  good  time  talking  about  school.  If  that’s  even  possible.  Conversation   over.  The  end.  Shut  up.
