Core Interview Project

There is so much we can find out by simply asking.

More to find out about my family and those I care for.

My auntie recently passed away and a lot of her stories and dreams went with her. I realize that there are so many things that I don’t know about the people closest to me, namely, my immediate family and relatives. These are questions that I put together and I intend to interview my family members and relatives with these questions.

Some of these questions, if not all, can be very beneficial and insightful in your own life and I feel like it would be interesting to know these answers from those you deeply care for.

I’ll answer each question first and then leave a template at the very bottom so you can copy and use it for your own devices.

Spend time with my immediate family and tell them how much I love them and why I respect them so much. Share my dreams and what I hope for them. I would call a few close friends and tell them how much I appreciate them and what I hope for them. Not to be sad for me, that meaning dictates reality, so make light out of this situation and situations moving forward. I would send a big message to the social media world to live with passion and love in their hearts.

The day after the last day of DWD, checking out of the hotel and then enjoying the scenery while reflecting on the glory of everything I learned, who I met, what I am now committed to, the weather was glorious, I bought some shoes, had an enriching conversation with Maryn. It was ecstasy, complete peace of mind, my opportunity to explore Palms Springs for the first time.

On Korean Air, shortly after taking off to Japan – where I officially saw the beginning of a new chapter in my life – something that I deeply yearned for and now it was manifesting. There was a big moment of pride, the plane was empty, I knew that I’d be learning so much. I was spreading my wings on my own to fly.

The feeling right before graduation, where I was getting closure after four years of academia wanting to get out. I had an undeniable grin on my face. It was also the start of a new phase – post-graduation. I was relieved, excited, and ready for the next stage.

Arriving in Naha and putting all of my stuff at Hostel Hakuseiso, then venturing out on my own having my first slice of Okinawan life. It was so awesome and I was, once again, slipping into a new place with a little more Japanese under my belt so I could get around more easily. So much positive anticipation.

20) What is one of the saddest moments of your life?

The fight I had with dad right before leaving Mammoth and talking so much negative stuff to him.

After mom bought me shoes at Champs and I was being such an asshole to her in high school

During my 2nd year in college, frequently getting nauseous in the shower a lot because I kept thinking about how to deal with Garret being at UCI the following year. Feeling like I had to uphold a certain image, in fear of judgments from him and others..

27) If you were to give one piece of advice to the younger generation, what would that be?

Be committed to your own self-awareness. Know who you are committed to becoming (establish a vision for yourself and know that it can change but it should change because you sincerely believe that it will be a more fulfilling way to meet your 6 needs), know what you value, what it takes to experience your values day in and day out, what you are afraid of. The more you know yourself, the less likely you are to believe how others define you.
