    “On the spot: Netza Aguirre, Undecided freshman”

    You’re undecided. What do you wanna do?

    I want to do something in engineering, but I’m not sure yet what I’m interested in.

    Cars? Boats? Making things?

    Maybe airplanes, actually.

    What kind? Do you know anything about airplanes? I know nothing.

    It just looks cool, I dunno.

    I see you have a longboard. Is that your main transportation?

    Yes it is.

    I also see people fall on their longboard. Do you ever fall or do you try not to fall … have you ever fallen?

    Actually, the first semester some girl walked straight into me, and I tried to move but

    I flipped.

    Do you say anything back to her? Were you pissed?

    No, she was like, “”Oh, so sorry.”” She was all nice about it.

    Did people see you?

    A few, a couple I guess. I don’t know. It’s kind of embarrassing.

    What are you working on right now?

    I’m working on my TRAD essay on W.E.B. DuBois.

    And Booker T. Washington?

    And Washington, yeah. It’s due today. We had like a month and I’m just starting it.

    Just being a creep right now, but is that your Dean’s excuse (on the table)?

    Yeah, for club volleyball.

    Have you ever measured your vertical?

    No.

    You don’t know what your vertical is? You couldn’t out-jump Derrick Williams?

    No way. Can I give a shout out to the UA men’s club team in

    the paper?

    Maybe.
