    “On the Spot: Marcus Jensen, pre-business freshman”

    So, I noticed you were just fiddling around on your iPad, why did you get one and what is your favorite thing about it?

    I got an iPad because it’s convenient and better than taking a whole big computer to class and there’s a lot of games on there.

    What’s your favorite game?

    No comment.

    Come on …

    Probably Angry Birds, everybody knows that game, people know what I’m talking about.

    Are you a big gamer? Video games? Sports games?

    No, not really. I’m not really in to games that much, to be honest.

    What about like mental games?

    What kind of questions are these? Like brain teasers?

    No, like playing games with people, with their heads.

    No, that’s not nice.

    Have you ever played games with people’s minds to get what you want?

    No, that is not fair. I’m telling the truth, I have never done that before.

    So picture this scene: you just got paid, just finished a test, it’s a Friday night and you are ready to jam, what is the first song that you blast?

    Probably Tyga, “”Party Ova’ Here.””

    What is your favorite song just to cruise to?

    Definitely Ryan Leslie, “”When I Think About Love.”” Total R&B in the house …

    Are you going to be attending the “”Harry Potter”” premiere in about 24 hours?

    Whoa, don’t even go there. Stop right there, definitely not.

    Whoa, hatin’ on Harry. Well what are you going to do instead while the entire world is watching it?

    Something much, much more productive, and worthy.

    Favorite Thanksgiving tradition?

    Praying around the table with my family.

    How many people usually gathered around?

    Well it depends on which family I go to, but probably around 10 to 15.

    I’m kind of picturing The Last Supper but with your family?

    (Laughs) I am not going to compare my Thanksgiving dinner with The Last Supper, but we are all holding hands in prayer.

    Does everyone go around and say what they are thankful for?

    No. The eldest leads the prayer and we all just kind of listen and reflect.

    Nice, sounds like a scene from a classic Holiday movie.

    Yeah, it’s a good time. Pretty traditional.
