The first time I met him on the day I start my seventh-grade class. He is tall and skinny, small head, and really small eyes. His voice is quiet and calm. He is a nice person. Anything you want him to help, he will help you if he can. Also, he is a funny guy. You can hear a lot of funny jokes or stuff from him. So, it’s easy to make friends with him if you have the same hobby as him. For example, like animes and games. And you will have a good time with him.
My first Memory of ZhuangZhi is that he played games on his phone during the gym class. When we had free time in the gym class. It doesn’t the same as in the U.S. Our free time you can do whatever you want. So I sit next to him and watch him play games. Because I played that game too. So we make a friend and share our experience
We are still really good friends. Our relationship is even better than before. We text and talk on a Chinese app like Snapchat. It’s call QQ.

I mean this is the most difficult project I’ve ever done. The most difficult part isn’t the interview, it is the preparation and after work. Because when you recording your interview, you feel nothing but a regular conversation with your friend. Like discussing the daily lives. But preparing the interview and after work of the interview is way more difficult and complicated than the interview. You got to write stuff, doing researches, fixing little issues, translate the interview from Chinese to English, and so on. So, I would say the interview is easy, but other works are on the opposite side.
