Lucy Stallings

Point of Discovery/Informant Bio

Lucy is a 19 year old sophomore studying at Utah State University. She is currently an undeclared student, but is thinking about becoming an English major. She is a very happy person and is nice to everyone she meets. Family is very important to her and she often goes over to family members houses on the weekends. She is one of my roommates and I have only known her since the beginning of the semester. She’s very diligent and good at doing her homework. If she’s not doing homework, she’s probably watching netflix. She’s a super laid back person.


I knocked on her door and asked her to tell me a joke, any joke, for part of a project. She laughed and said that she was back at telling jokes. Nevertheless, she told me her favorite laffy taffy joke. It was a very laid back situation and we laughed about it. It was a short conversation, but got cut a little short because a friend of ours came over. It was just her and I in the room when she told it, with the only background noise being her fan.


I: What did the cashew say to the peanut?

N: What?

I: Imma Cashew!


She was pretty excited to tell me the joke and she told it almost as if she was telling it to a child. We were both very animated in our laughter and she in particular was animated in the way in which she told it.
