In this week’s classmate conversation I interviewed both Devin Nelson and Anthony Simeone. Devin is in his 3rd year here at California State University, Long Beach and so is Anthony. We all seemed to have one thing in common. All three of us love to play sports and do anything outside including snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, wakeboarding and camping. Devin’s favorite color is red, and his favorite house pet is a dog. His favorite exotic animal is quite strange as it is a Lion and Panther mixed breed. I never heard of a hybrid like this, the only one that I knew of was a Liger. I have to say, when I looked up a picture of the hybrid, I was amazed. When I asked Anthony what kind of art has impacted him the most, he responded with music because it is in his everyday life all around him and that is what gets to him and makes him happy. Devin responded with Urban art such as graffiti because he grew up in Long beach that is what he saw the most. Anthony is studying the same thing as me which is Mechanical Engineering and Devin is a double business major. Anthony would like to work in the amusement industry and Devin would one day hope to be running the Port of Long Beach. Devin’s favorite memory from a sport was in pop warner football he ran a punt back for a touchdown running sideline to sideline weaving through the opposing team in his white soccer cleats. Anthony’s favorite memory was recently when he had just joined the Rugby team and the first time he got the ball he ran over two players and scored a 50 yard try. It was awesome getting to talk to the two and I wish them well in the future.
