wk8 – Classmate Conversation – Daniel Guerrero

20151015_111011

In this week’s classmate conversation, I had the opportunity to meet fellow classmate, Daniel Guerrero. Daniel is 20 years old and is currently in his 3rd year here at CSULB and is focusing on Bio-medical Engineering. In his field he would like to work with medical devices and prosthetics. When asked where he sees himself in 5 years he said Grad school, definitely. He works in the student recreation and wellness center here on campus while still maintaining a full-time student status. Daniel is mostly Hispanic and comes from Santa Barbara, Ca. Daniel and I are alike in many ways because in his free time he says he will do just about anything outdoors like hiking, camping, action sports, etc. On his breaks he likes to travel and currently he is planning on going to Europe and studying abroad in Spain. He has been to about 10 different U.S states and also Mexico, and Baja California. His favorite animals are Bears and turtles, specifically the Galapagos Tortoise. He thinks that it’s hilarious when a Galapagos Tortoise tries to eat a pumpkin. An interesting fact about Daniel is that he likes to read a lot of comics. Lastly, his favorite kind of art are pencil drawings because he likes looking at intricate detail.

wk7 – Activity – Ephemeral Art

Don’t worry every one, it’s not a real gorilla, it’s just the first drawing I made for this activity. My friend Anthony and I were getting our tan on at the pool by the rec center and I decided to do my first drawing for our activity. I looked around me and I saw all these palm trees, and figured I had to draw something in them because he had already taken my idea of drawing someone sunbathing next to us. At first I tried to draw a monkey but that did not go well at all. A Gorilla was easier to draw for me, and that is how my first picture came about.

My next picture is a little more simple. I was bored, doing homework and I wanted to show some frustration off and with the help of snapchat’s new update I was able to do that. I used some exploding purple dust because I just wanted to explode at that point and play the new Star Wars Battelfront Beta that was released on Playstation for 4 days.

The next picture is the one I spoke of earlier that my classmate Anthony Simeone drew up when we were tanning at the pool. He made a pretty good drawing of someone sunbathing next to us. Great job Anthony! Even though he stole my idea with this one, here it is.

Last but not least we have a picture that was cleverly drawn by our classmate Aiyat Abdelhady. She drew a very fun picture from inside one of the art galleries her on campus of someone swinging on a swing smiling. This was a brilliant idea and I just have to say, great job, Aiyat!

This week’s activity was very fun because we were able to draw a bunch of silly doodles and we were also able to see a lot of our classmates lives outside of class through snapchat. I definitely loved this activity, even better than the Instagram one and I would definitely do it again. Thank you all for catching up with me this week and God bless!

wk6- Activity – Periscope

This week’s activity was probably the easiest and best one yet. Our objective was to do a broadcast on periscope. If you don’t know what periscope is, it’s an app where you do a live web broadcast and anyone in the world can interact with you and watch. I decided to do my broadcast at the gym because that is a big part of my life, and I thought people might find it interesting.

I invited people to get a peek on what I do when I workout. On this particular day, my roommate and I were working out our back, traps, bi’s, and obliques. We started the broadcast off showing our viewers, on how to do rocky pull-ups, which you can view in the link. We then continued on all of our other workouts and I also would interact with my viewers during breaks. At one point my roommate even said “Dude you’re having way too much fun with this”. A lot of the comments came from a girl who was being very inappropriate with sexual comments that i cannot repeat. There was also a comment from a guy saying “Just another douche-bag at the gym showing off”. It kind of offended me, but just for a second because there was one viewer who was giving us a lot of compliments on how hard we were working and asking us for tips on back workouts because he just hurt his back lifting heavy weight. At one point he even asked if I was a trainer and told us that we really knew our stuff. It felt good helping other people and I hope to do another broadcast sometime soon. Thank you all for coming! Have a blessed day.
