Hey Hubski, It's nowaypablo. It's a frosty evening here in New York City suburbia and I'm answering a few questions that thenewgreen sent me as part of this meethubski series interview thing. So thanks for having me on TNG. And here it goes.
Question 1: Who has been the most influential person in your life and why?
One of the people that I really look up to is a family friend of mine who came to the United States from Armenia with $100 in his pocket, ame to the University of Rhode Island on a full scholarship, and studied physics. After graduating he came to New Jersey and as he started just taking whatever opportunity came before him he eventually got into the world of finance on Wall Street and eventually ended up managing his own hedge fund. That hedge fund became one of the most successful hedge funds in Manhattan and before you know it this physics geek from Armenia is a total Wolf of Wall Street Baller Type guy. And all the while he managed to maintain compassion and real character that allowed him to raise a great family, be a great father, and exhibit the sort of traits that I would want to see in any kind of person, especially myself, even in the face of financial success that a lot of the time we see spoiling a lot of great people and great characters.
Question 2: You are stranded on a deserted island and can bring one member from the Hubski community with you. Who do you bring and why?
I think we'd have a great time regardless of who I brought with me, but my boy Galen, who despite getting a higher ACT score than I did is still a great guy and I think we'd have a great time together. _refugee_ who is the first Hubski user that I actually saw in person, I've never had the chance to have another Hubski meetup though I would love to if anyone ever came to New York. We'd have a great time, thenewgreen would show me some great music I'm sure, keep me very entertained on that lonely deserted island. Although kleinbl00 would have a lot to teach me, I think we would argue so much that I think I would have to swim away from that island and risk drowning. (Hear you on that one). That could be great too.
Question 3: What is your message?
Well seeing as I'm 17 years old, I'd say that whatever opinion I have formed so far means absolutely nothing to anyone of any substance. But, I learned a lot this year about attitude. And that's something I'd like everyone to be aware of especially if you're a bright person who is in a bad situation, or in negative circumstances that you feel like you can't get out of. I found out that if you can keep even with the use of humor, try to keep a positive outlook even in the worst of situations, that circumstance might get better all of a sudden, and you'll be there with a positive outlook ready to seize that change and roll with it. Socially it's been very easy for me once I allowed myself to be open and free and have a good time. To just make friends and just surround myself with the kind of people that I feel most comfortable around. And if one of my friends turns out to not be the best person for me, to have this outlook, a positive attitude can help me let go of that toxic person and move on with my life easier, comfortably. And not trying to hang on to this wicked relationship and try to figure out how to get around it. So I hope that anyone who is going through any sort of tough times or any sort of stressful situation can allow themselves to see a little bit of humor or a little bit of fun in whatever they're doing. Or at least find something else to distract them from that and get back to it when they're feeling better because there is no point in wasting a second of your life in doing something that doesn't make you feel good. Unless of course you're working toward something that will make you feel great in the future, in which case keep chugging. Best of luck to you.
So thanks for having me on, and hearing me out. It's been great. Peace out.
