Early Adulthood Interviews

Two people were interviewed in the course of the project. They answered a total of ten questions each. Some of their answers were rather similar, and some quite different.

Let us commence with the similarities. Both women have been married and are now divorced. They both left their home towns after graduating from college. They left their home states since both of them looked for independence of their parents. Both of them took the divorce process rather hard, but, in a while, everything became quite normal, as they were satisfied with themselves for being on their own again.

They, however, have much more differences, than similarities in their lives. The first interviewee possesses more confidentiality and dedication to her job and responsibilities. She left everybody and settled down away from home, willing to have a family; while her opponent was running away from the everyday partying routine. Both women find their ex husbands guilty in the divorce, but interviewee 2 also takes part of guilt for herself. She understands that her behavior was inappropriate and could be cause for her husband to leave looking for the attention of other women.

Both women like their jobs, but on totally diverse reasons. Interviewee 1 enjoys her job as a professional, who tends to improve her skills and qualifications. Interviewee 2 does not pay so much attention to the job, as the factor that matters to her is that it is close to the place where she rents an apartment, her duties are not complex, and she enjoys working with her colleagues.

We cannot judge of the two women’s backgrounds, but they were definitely brought up in different ways. Interviewee 1 finds relaxation in practicing yoga; while her opponent believes that she is not even yielded to stress, since she spends a lot of time entertaining in the bar, located in downtown. This must be her way to get isolated from the rest of the people, and be herself. She replaces casual spending of time with consuming of alcohol and entertaining herself in the places, ignored by most of the people.
