I had the pleasure to meet Pedro Morales this week. Pedro is a freshman and went to Jordan High School which I learned is in North Long Beach. Pedro plays guitar and mainly likes heavy metal. He likes to jam with friends and annoy the neighbors who can’t appreciate his style of play. Pedro works at Pizza Hut as a driver. When I was looking for a job, I was looking at becoming a driver, so it was cool meeting one and asking questions. Pedro didn’t have to work up to driving, yet rather got a reference from his cousin. He drives his own car, but Pizza Hut will throw him a few cents for gas. Sometimes he even makes more money by tips than his paycheck.
Pedro and I share an ambition to live in Oregon. He was looking at school there, but that darn out of state tuition is pretty ridiculous. Pedro has family out in Oregon, so he visits every once in a while. For Pedro being a freshman, he is undeclared yet wants to do something within film when he is older and out of the system.
