This week I met a really chill guy by the name of Brandon Hamada. Brandon’s from some obscure place in California, some place that ends with “dale.” Now you know the place is obscure when it ends in “dale.”
I came really late to the galleries, because I wasn’t feeling too good about my life. Brandon was sitting on one of the rock benches, and I asked him if I could interview him. He said he had already done it with someone, but it was alright with him if we just talked. I gratefully accepted.
We talked about a lot of things. I don’t remember them all, but it was a good conversation. It wasn’t awkward at all. Brandon’s a pretty open dude. He’s a freshman, which you can’t tell by looking at him (it’s the beard), and an engineering major. He’s thinking about switching to either Computer Science or Creative Writing. He really likes English and writing, and is considering being a writer for video games. Doing something you love sounds awesome. I don’t know what I’m going to do in the future, but I hope it’s something I enjoy, even if what I study here at Long Beach doesn’t match up with it.
I really hope I meet this guy again. He’s a good guy to talk to. Especially when you’re trying to catch up with life, like me.
