On Thursday October 9th, I had the pleasure of meeting Christian Espinoza during the weekly walk through the art galleries. Though we are also both in the same human development, comparative world literature, and, at one point a temporary college of liberal arts advising class, we had not really talked much to each other before.
He is currently majoring in English and chose said major because he enjoys interpreting works of literature, analyzing and constructing arguments, and AP Literature happened to be his favorite class in high school. He likes to read books when he knows he can read them calmly, not having to worry about finishing it before the movie adaptation, or when they are exceptionally entrancing. Some of the books he has really enjoyed include And the Mountains Echoed and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. With a bit of help from his major he would like to one day be a special-education teacher.
Some of his favorite movies are Forrest Gump, V for Vendetta, Guardians of the Galaxy, and overall a lot of the current Marvel movies. As for music, he enjoys songs by Circa Survive and City and Color.
We had a couple of things in common such as having no pets, never being on a plane, and never traveling outside of the state. I enjoyed our conversation, mostly because it felt just like a natural conversation instead of an interview, including the rather interesting tangent about hypnotism, creepy clowns, and the meaning of life. It was rather nice getting to talk more and hopefully that continues.
