My Blog

Hi, my name is Alex Aragon.  I’m 18 years old and graduated from Pompano Beach High School in 2010.  I came to Florida Gulf Coast University for its relaxed student enviornment and its relatively close location to my house.  My major is currently Criminal Justice, for I want to pursue a career with the federal government in law enforcement.

In my high school years, I played the drums for the marching band.  I started my freshman year with no prior knowledge of the instrument.  I progressed each year and finally made it to drum captain my senior year.  I love music and loved to play it.  I was also privileged enough to travel to many foreign countries throughout my life time.  I’ve been to Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, South Africa, China, and Costa Rica, to name a few.  One interesting thing that occurred while I was in China, was that my group that I was with had to be quarantined because of the swine flu pandemic.  We had to spend seven days in a hotel with no windows or air conditioning.  The reason for our quarantine was because someone on our plane had a fever, and 11 rows in front of and behind the sick person had to be contained.

All in all I have a very interesting, cultural life.  My father being from Costa Rica, and my mother being from New Jersey.

In this class, I would like to investigate: the pulling of US troops out of Afghanistan.  I think this is good because people have very different opinions about this topic.  Also:  Do you think Obama is a good or bad President.  Another:  Should the government control what we eat?    Last but not least: Mac vs. PC?
