WK1 – Classmate Conversation – Dylan Chhin

The classmate I had a conversation with was a man named Dylan Chhin. Dylan had actually grew up in Long Beach, just like me so that was pretty interesting. We talked about the schools we went to and he went to Millikan. We also spoke about how we knew people from each other’s middle schools and then began talking about other hobbies. Dylan is interested in Computers and his major is also relates to Computers. He also likes to play games on the computers, and I found that fascinating because I used to play as a kid, and haven’t much since. I always wanted to build one because I was interested to see how everything worked and what its function was so I never had to call anyone to fix mine when it breaks. I had a great time talking to Dylan because we had many things in common and aside from just that he seemed like a good person. img_8165

WK1 – Art Experience – Plaster Casting

The day began as my friend, Milon and I met on campus. We called the hardware store to make sure they had all the supplies that were needed and headed over there. As we walked in, the lady was very helpful walking around grabbing everything necessary. We made our way to the beach, but on the way there we decided to grab some drinks which ended up being a wise decision. We got to the beach, unloaded everything we needed and went out to the water. I never used to play with sand as a kid, mostly just play beach football so this, was a bit different. We began digging into the sand trying to figure out how deep we wanted it, as the sun set it. It was a good thing we brought the drinks because it was getting really hot. Laying the plaster was a bit difficult because weren’t sure how deep we were supposed to go and how much plaster to put in, so it did not end up anywhere near the visuals on the website. Although, it was still pretty fun laying that out and watching what happened. I have not done anything like this before though in my life and I do plan doing a better job with plaster next time.
