This week I met Fahad Hassan. Fahad is currently a sophomore at CSULB and is majoring in Business. A major portion of our conversation consisted of topics, such as classes and schedules. He is currently only taking classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. He is lucky enough to have the rest of the week off. He lives by Los Angeles and it takes him roughly half an hour to commute to school on the days he does have classes. His classes start as early as 8 A.M. and the latest ends at 6 P.M. We are taking similar courses. He is taking Nutrition and a Communications class. I am also taking those two classes, however, his communications class is about speech and speaking in front of large groups and mine is about interpersonal skills and talking to someone one on one. He admitted that speaking in front of large audiences does make him nervous, however, the class in helping him get over his nerves. The speeches he has to give range in topics. He had to give a speech the day that we talked and that one was an informative speech, which he was a bit nervous about.
We began to talk about music and the artists we enjoy the most. We both agreed that one of our favorite types of music is hip-hip. Fahad’s favorite artist is J. Cole and my favorite is Eminem. We agreed that those are two very good artists and both enjoy their music. He then asked about my favorite movie and I told him that End of Watch was my favorite. Fahad added that it is a very good movie and he liked it as well. He expressed that his favorite movies are all of the Hangover movies. He said that the first one is the best, but the other ones are really good too.
Fahad and I also talked about work. I admitted that I do not currently work, I only go to school. He currently works at LAX and enjoys his job very much. There, he scans the passports of passengers. He had a friend that worked there and he helped him get his current job there. One of the reasons why Fahad is fond of his job is because he gets to see many celebrities come in and out of LAX. A few of the people he has seen so far include: Megan Fox, Paris Hilton, and Kobe.
