California State University Long Beach

California State University Long Beach

California State University

I was somewhat surprised when I was accepted into the same film program as Steven Spielberg. He's always been a tremendous inspiration to me. The campus of California State University Long Beach is absolutely amazing as is the weather.

I made a lot of good friends and even learned a thing or two during the two years I was there. My major was Film & Electronic Art and my specialty track was production management. While I was there, I was part of the team on several large productions and supported the film club on several others. It was all very familiar and memories from high school came back quickly. I didn't let my ego get in the way when I was there and I always encouraged the younger kids to step-up and have the experience. I probably could have taught some of those classes but I was there for the satisfaction of earning a degree after all those years. I sat in the front row, was always on time, and never missed a single class. It was fairly expensive just to go, there was no way I would pay then not not attend. I had perfect grades and would have earned Summa Cum Laude honors if not for failing to withdraw correctly from community college courses twenty years earlier. However, I did receive Magna Cum Laude honors and was in the top 2% or so of a graduating class of around six thousand. It was a big personal honor for me to be the first person from my family to graduate from an academic university.

Little Known Stories

Proverbs often contradict one another, as any reader soon discovers. The sagacity that advises us to look before we leap promptly warns us that if we hesitate we are lost; that absence makes the heart grow fonder, but out of sight, out of mind. ~Leo Rosten
