Humans of Downey - Angel and Claudia


"I'm looking forward to going to Palm Springs for our first anniversary. We are going to just hang out there. We will be staying at the Hyatt. I've never been there but I've been told that it's very peaceful and quiet. We'll hang out at the pool most of the day."

"I am very curious about the job opportunities in accounting that will be available after I finish my degree. There are lots of different companies and uses for my degree and I want to find one that suits me and my personality."

"We first met at a Halloween party my friend was throwing for his birthday. They were serving a drink called 'Jungle Juice' where they put a lot of different fruit and several kinds of liquor. By the time I arrived, though, the Jungle Juice had run out so she comes up to me and says, 'You shouldn't have any more to drink, here's a water.' And I was like, 'What?' That was my first impression of her. We talked some more at the party but we were both uninterested in the other. Her friend said we should exchange numbers but we both were thinking, 'I don't know if I want to.' But we did. The only reason we were even talking together was a friend of mine wanted to hook up with one of her friends.

"A couple of weeks went by and my friend asked me, 'Hey, do you still have that number of that girl at the party?' It seems that the girl he wanted to hook up with wasn't returning his texts so he wanted us to go on a double date. Since I hadn't called her in several weeks, I had to come up with a clever and original opening line when I called her. I said, 'Hi, I'm that Angel dressed as a Dodger you met at the Halloween party.' It then took 6 to 8 months before we started to think, 'This could work out. I want to keep it going.' And now it's been a year since we made it an exclusive relationship."
