For my partner interview I decided to interview Jose Santillan and found out that we had a lot of things in common. Jose is from Bell and attended Bell High School meaning that he is very familiar with the Los Angeles area since he grew up in the area. Jose comes from a pretty big family and told me that family is everything to him and he really enjoys being part of his family. As of right now Jose is majoring in Psychology but he is thinking about changing his major to Science and possibly minoring in art illustration simply because it is a passion he has. He expressed to me that having a major and a minor creates a level of comfort for him because it creates options and opens doors for many job opportunities.
Aside from all the general information I washable to find out about Jose, I also was able to find out the things he likes to do for recreation on his free time. In high school Jose was very involved in sports as was part of the soccer, track and field, and cross country team which was something we had in common since I was involved in many sports such as football, wrestling and some track. By the way he talked about the sports he played I can tell that he had a great passion for the sports he participated in and is something he put a lot of time into. Jose told me that one of the things he enjoyed doing the most was simply just running because it was a sort of stress relief when he had a lot of things on his mind. Another we had in common is that we both enjoyed playing video games and listening to music as a way to get away from our busy lives and just enjoy life.
Jose is a very level minded person and I can see that he has a lot going for him in the future. He knows what he has to do to be successful and has a very well thought out plan on the things he can do to make sure he reaches his goals. It was very cool to get to know Jose on a deeper level and get to know what he is into. It is very cool to hear what people are into and be able to compare and contrast what we do and dont have in common.
For my artist interview this week I chose an art piece by Hyeri Kim which was named “His extravagant proposal” and was made up of exhibits that showed artifacts that make up a wedding. Walking into this exhibit I felt very awkward at first because as a nineteen year old college student marriage is the last thing on my mind. After I stayed and observed the exhibit for a while I realized the importance and the message that the artist was trying to get across. I realized that even though I am very young and it is not something I should be thinking about right now, it is a very important topic that I must consider because eventually it will happen. Being that the artist was also young it made me feel a lot more comfortable with the idea of marriage because it made me realize that it is a normal thing to be thinking about from time to time.
Right now is the time that most people find their mates that they will spend the rest of their lives with which can be scary to think about but it is definitely something I need to be aware of. As of now I have a girlfriend who is very dear to my heart and is someone who makes me happy but it is not a definite thing that I will one day marry her. Since I’ve been in a relationship I realized that love is an important thing and that we all feel the need to be loved by somebody which is very important if you want to experience happiness in your lifetime. The love and respect I get from others is something I value very much because of the fact that they are taking the time out of their day to show that they care. This was a very eye opening exhibit for me and made me realize a lot of things about love and what it actually means to commit to someone.
The part of the exhibit that really caught my attention was the diamond ring because of the significant value it carries. One day when I am financially capable I plan on buying a very nice ring to show my future wife that she means a lot to me. I know that material things aren’t very important but if you can spoil someone that you love I don’t see why I shouldn’t. This was a very cool exhibit and it was very eye opening and made me the realize the things I will have to come across in life. being young we try to be blind yo thing and ignore things we aren’t ready for but it is good to step back and realize that things are coming our way wether we like it or not. Hyeri has a great talent with communicating her messages through her art and I can see her having a bright future ahead of her.
