Wk 15 – Design Your Life

My 3 Possible Futures

The current thing I would be doing in the future is either working, studying to get my MBA, or playing/watching/teaching/learning basketball. I obviously need money to survive therefore I would have to work; I am planning to continue my education after my undergraduate and get my MBA. Lastly, whenever I am not doing the other things I am doing something that involves basketball so I would like to pursue that in the some way. I’d do this by practicing and continuously playing with the players that play overseas, in the Drew Leagues, and other leagues. Also I would speak to the basketball trainers so they could teach me drills and other things so I could teach my brother and other kids and maybe go train one day. In terms of school I would continue working the job that I have right now and go to school at the same time probably part time. I predict it would take me like three years but in the end it will all be worth it.

If basketball were to disappear tomorrow, like I said I would probably either be studying or working. But instead of studying Accounting or some sort of Business field, I would be striving to obtain a degree in some sort of medical field. Something that involves sports and physical activity at first, then maybe something else. Now if I can’t go back to school, I would try to get some certifications or something that would expand my knowledge further in the field I want to chase. To get my medical degree it would probably be the same plan get my degrees and then perhaps try to work or start my own firm or some sort. Also I would try to find a way to mix the medical office with maybe like a law firm so that we would be prepared for any legal actions if necessary.

Hypothetically if I was financially secure I do not know what I would be doing. I think I would probably be doing something involving basketball. I would like I said earlier be playing, teaching, learning, or watching basketball. Or maybe being a sports doctor and try to help players coming back from injuries or how to prevent injuries. If those two aren’t the case I would try to travel the world and really go to the important and most hidden places I could find and try to really enjoy and explore each city. I would adventure by talking to the locals but doing so with no type of valuables with me and maybe a couple people. I would also take a weapon or two because a lot of the locals like to take advantage of you. And I think of the worst outcomes so I feel like I would get chopped up and sold or something.

Rapid Prototype: I have talked to a couple professional basketball players here and there that have either played overseas or in the D League. I enjoy picking their brains about the process behind becoming successful and what it’s like in those situations in different cities and countries. I have also spoken to a few physical therapists, chiropractors, and doctors to see what is like in their shoes. But, I have mostly spoken to them about sports related things like how to prevent injuries and how to deal injuries afterwards.


Wk 15 – Classmate Conversation – Dylan Chhin

The classmate I had a conversation with was a man named Dylan Chhin. Dylan had actually grew up in Long Beach, just like me so that was pretty interesting. We talked about the schools we went to and he went to Millikan. We also spoke about how we knew people from each other’s middle schools and then began talking about other hobbies. Dylan is interested in Computers and his major is also relates to Computers. He also likes to play games on the computers, and I found that fascinating because I used to play as a kid, and haven’t much since. I always wanted to build one because I was interested to see how everything worked and what its function was so I never had to call anyone to fix mine when it breaks. I had a great time talking to Dylan because we had many things in common and aside from just that he seemed like a good person.


Wk 15 – Classmate Conversation – Andrew Hoang

I did not make it to class this week but I made sure to prepare if something like this ever happened. Weeks prior I made sure to introduce myself to a couple people and do a few classmate conversations at once so I at least meet new people even if I never get to post about it. But this week I had to use a back up. I had met Andrew earlier in the school year but that does not stop me from highlighting him on my post this week. He is undeclared right now but he is interested in Accounting. I am also an Accounting major so we were talking about classes for a little bit. It is his first year at CSULB so he is lucky enough to be undeclared and explore different fields. Outside of the classroom he likes playing games and hanging out with his friends. He has a PC and also built one like the other people I met in class. I used to play a lot of Call of Duty but he plays Counter Strike instead. I heard the game is really hard on the PC and makes Call of Duty look like a joke. Aside from video games and school, during the weekends he works at a Chinese restaurant. IMG_8634

WK 15 – Sketching in the CSULB Japanese Garden

I was not feeling to well during class time so unfortunately I was not able to experience this fully with the class. Although, I did make some time this week when I felt better and made my way down there and I am really glad I did. I have lived in Long Beach my whole life and never been here before. It was amazing to see all the different structures and the little animals that were around too. The buildings were amazing and I love the architecture behind them. While I was there I appreciated the different style of the buildings and thought it was beautiful; I had really missed out on the gardens for quite some time. This garden had brought me back to the third grade during the summer when I went to this summer camp at my elementary school. I’m not sure if it was the buildings or what, but it made me remember this field trip we went on; I remember it being a lot of fun hanging out the older kids. Also we watched a movie and went to the Mayor’s office that same day so it was long and exhausting but well worth it just like the garden. My hand drawing started really well but then my wrist looked like it was broken into 4 different parts and put back together. While my other drawings may look horrendous, what I saw with my eyes can not be put in words let alone redrawn on paper.
