This week I had the pleasure of getting to know Adrian Caluya. He is currently a 5th year at Cal State Long Beach and is going to graduate at the end of this year. He’s originally from Stockton, California but moved down here to attend school. He’s an electrical engineering major and was inspired to do so by his older cousins. According to Adrian, his older cousins always told him about how they were given the opportunity to travel due to work and that sparked his interest. Also because he’s interested in understanding how things work. Some of Adrian’s hobbies include skateboarding, playing the guitar, and collecting vinyl and cassettes. He also told me about his huge collection of hats, consisting of 60+ hats!
One thing that I thought was really cool was that even though Adrian is originally from northern California and currently lives in Long Beach, we found out that we actually know a lot of the same people. After I told him that I’m from Fountain Valley, he stated that a lot of his friends are from Fountain Valley as well and we realized that I’m familiar with his group of friends. Stuff like that makes you realize how small the world really is and how connected everyone can be, just like that video that Glenn showed us during lecture class.
