Comfortable laughing with each other and even when

comfortable laughing with each other and even when there are pauses in our dialogue they are not awkward pauses. The conversation is not really about anything that would be awkward to talk to with each other. An example of that would be if he or I were to break up with each other, or tell each other a secret we have been keeping from each other. There was good air between the both of us, so that also was productive for a good conversation. I feel that since most people have more than one identity they have created for themselves, this conversation that the participant and I have had, accurately reflects one of the identities that we would identify with. We were both reserved, yet able to share our ideals or in my case be able to take in what he was saying without much of a rebuttal or any rebuttal at all. I was comfortable just being able to listen to what he had to say and processing what his ideas were. He was also very comfortable sharing his ideas with me and the knowledge that he has acquired from his experiences with different people and different identities he has come into contact with throughout his years. This transcription does, I would say, accurately portray and reflect our identities. But one thing that I would have a problem with is since it is just a recording and there is no picture, it would be hard to tell exactly how we feel about a certain idea because there are no facial expressions or gestures. I find that even though tone of voice does tell a lot about how a person is feeling when they are saying something and how comfortable somebody is with something, their body expressions and facial expressions show on a larger scale how someone is feeling when they are talking about something. It is much easier to tell off of body expressions

because there are many more tells and it’s harder to disguise how you are feeling with body expressions. But all in all I believe that this transcription/recording accurately depicted parts of our identities, at least the ones we were willing to show. 1. Khadijah: H::i I’m Khadijah 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
