Different Cultures: Personal Experiences

Improved Essays
A fingerprint is something unique to each person as well as their culture and perception. Everyone has encountered their own experiences that have helped them grown into the person they are today. I recently interviewed Tucker on September 30th and learned how similar and different our background and cultures are. In my essay I will talk about how the different ways me and Tucker have grown and how those ways give us different outlook on certain issues. Tucker and I both have different family situations which influenced some of the experiences we had growing up. I will also be going into how our different hometowns have influenced us on where we want to be in the future. Even looking into our majors we can see different styles of perception. …show more content…
Tucker is from Staunton Virginia which is a small towns homed to about 24 thousand people. He says there on 2 thing really major to do there, Which is the Blackfriars Playhouse which is represented on 50% of his population which is called “ the new aged artist” in his words. The other attraction in Staunton is the Woodrow Wilson birth place museum which is represented of the other 50% of their population “old people”. What I found insetting is that Tucker great grandmother made Woodrow Wilson birth place into an actual museum where people could learn more about him not to just see where he lived. Where I came from was very different I lived in the city where there was always traffic and people were always moving around. The population of my hometown is around 1 million. What attracted tourist to my part of town was literally everything from the fairest wheel in Toys R Us to the ball dropping during New years. Christmas time is literally the biggest time of the year.

New York slice of pizza is huge in length but it 's not as grease as the ones here in Fairfax …show more content…
Im more of the person has long term orientation snd tucker more short term orientation culture. He explained to me that he hasn’t thought that far ahead in his future I mean he knows what he wants to be but thats pretty much it. To me thats sent such a big deal right now but I feel as if you don’t do it soon you might get stuck one day and wont know how to get yourself out. My dad has always taught me to plan long term so thats exactly what I have done. I planed out my future when it comes to my career and if I don 't like it what other opportunities can I purse with my degree. Another thing I have learned is that you would want to start saving your money and put in into a saving account. You never know what will happen when you may need extra money for a rainy day or something. For our generation we don 't have a social security fund so I need to save my money so when I get older I will have money where i can live debt free and not have to work unless I really want

    I do agree that the college systems working hard every day doesn’t just grow money on trees to pay for their valued faulty member. They deserved to be paid just like any job, but why not think of a better way to pay then rather than out of their student’s pockets. I think it’s possible to provide the education for free without charging students those ridiculous prices. All we have to do is start taking out money out of the student’s paycheck after they get a job in their career field. Let’s them enter college debt free and when they graduate and get a job in their field of study to just have a tax put on their paycheck to pay back the school.…
