From our first exchange of “hello’s” to our last words of “goodbye” I learned more about this young man than you would ever known by just looking at him. He dresses in plain clothing like any other college student that rides a skateboard and likes “surfing the waves, brah” but also enjoys his time snowboarding and rock climbing, and I’m not talking about the little wall you can find in the CSULB gym. At the age of 22 he has already experienced more than most young adults. Engaged for almost 4 months this guy is racing to beat time. At a total of 12 jobs, his favorite was at a well known place Bubba Gump Shrimp. Which probably wasn’t the best job for a pizza eater and mango smoothie drinker.
So how would he spend half a million dollars when the world ends in 2 days?
“That’s a good question. I think I would spend it on a trip to Thailand with my family.That way I can spend the rest of my time somewhere different than here.”
