On Thursday, I met Jazz, a very interesting character. She is the epitome of all pop culture. She dressed in a normal outfit of the latest trends at the moment: grunge. She tried to be “on-the-surface grunge”, which consisted of distressed jeans in all the right places and an Abercrombie flannel. During our interview, she raved on and on about her seven hour wait for One Direction and how much she stalks their twitters to always find out where they are. She only like boy bands and everything that is alive in pop culture. I told her I was dorming and she told me that it was for poor people. Cheryl kind of just…stayed quiet. Jazz seems to be a little superficial and definitely loves Starbucks.
Cheryl and Jazz definitely had very different things to talk about. They seemed almost the opposite. Our characters definitely had a good flow of the conversation though. Jazz would normally just talk and ask good questions while Cheryl just did minimal talking, which is something she enjoys. Opposites do attract! At the end, they walked around the galleries and enjoyed the art. They also walked around the campus and had a good time.
The “real” Jazz, Jasmine, is nothing like this. She is a civil engineering major and she really likes a little more subdued bands, such as the 1975. She did admit that she waited in line for seven hours, but not to meet One Direction. She is really friendly and really does not mean that only poor people dorm. We got along really well, as just as ourselves, and were talking about how much fun this whole project was. We walked around campus together to ask people what they thought about our majors or what they thought our names were. We both got really good answers and laughed at all the possibilities that could have gone with our identities. Jasmine is really cool! But I’m not sure I could really be friends with Jazz….. but she seemed nice!
