This Thursday, I got the opportunity to view a gallery made by Hyeri Kim named “His Extravagant Proposal.” At first, I thought that it would be like any other art gallery, but this one was unique because it deals with an event that almost everyone will go through during his or her life. Kim decided to showcase her wedding and proposal day and decorated the gallery with all sorts of props such as flowers, wedding dresses, and rings.

This gallery stood out to me because Kim talked about love and how love is a God given right. It is when you have found that special someone in your life and that special day is when you and your significant other become married. Kim mentions God in her talks because she believes that God is the one who gave us this opportunity to love one another.

In my opinion, love is an emotion felt by everyone. It may be genetics or it may be God, no one knows for sure, but what is for sure is that love is a very strong emotion and everyone views love differently. Kim’s love for her husband is expressed in a form of art, which I think is creative and unique.

This week I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Alex Lo.  Alex is currently a sophomore in CSULB and its his second year here. Alex is majoring in Kinesiology and is hoping to work at a medical office after he graduates from CSULB. Alex enjoys working with other people in the medical field. Alex is also a commuter, like me. He commutes to school everyday, except Fridays. He has no classes on Friday because everyone enjoys three day weekends. Alex is from the La Habra area, which isn’t too far from Long Beach.

During his free time, Alex likes going to the gym, working out, and camping with his friends. Alex watches TV shows such as Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead because he enjoys action/adventure shows. Alex is currently not involved in any school clubs but he is considering joining the rugby team next year.

After talking for a while, we walked around to look at arts. We had different perspectives on many of the works and had many questions on many art pieces. Alex enjoys photography and loves taking pictures of the art with his iPhone. This is my last classmate conversation and I’m glad to have hung out with Alex Thursday!
