Junior Wednesday: Amir Bagheri

What’s your favorite technology brand?

“So I think today’s technology brands are profit driven and maybe not as high quality as you expect. For example, I just wanted a 16 GB iPhone X and it 450 bucks.  It’s ridiculous.  But a brand that I do have nostalgic feelings for is Hewlett Packard, it’s gone to absolute crap now but I remember that my first laptop was HP.”

What’s your favorite book and why?

“I’m not an avid reader to be honest, but I like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, so I got Anthony Keidis’ autobiography two summers ago. It was so raw and so real. It was so interesting to read about the life of a rock star.”

What’s your one advise to other high school students?

“Manage your time. A lot of school is managing your work and managing your time. Don’t get discouraged by bad grades because its not an indicator of how smart you are. If you put in the work and don’t procrastinate you will do perfectly fine, and make sure you start that habit freshman year because right now I’m struggling because I still procrastinate.”

What’s worse: Sunday nights or Monday mornings?

“Sunday nights. I want to relax and just kick back with some egg nog or something and watch some TV, but I can’t because I have an essay due, and there’s always something to do. I always leave it for Sunday night  and procrastinate about it until midnight and then I finally decide to not do it and do it the next morning, so its just wasted time anyways.”
