Howdie Caleb Madrigal!

By Bobby Luvender, Staff Writer

Caleb Madrigal is a friendly senior from downtown Houston. Madrigal enjoys hanging out with friends and having a good time.

The Wrangler: What was it like moving into a new school?

Madrigal: Intimidating at first, but the first day I showed up people were really nice and I actually had already made a couple of cool friends.

The Wrangler: What makes George Ranch different from an inner city school? 

Madrigal: George Ranch is so tightly knitted, everyone comes from the same place and has been together for a while, so the relationships just seem more personal here.

The Wrangler: Do you like the difference between the two types of environment? 

Madrigal: Yes, I do enjoy having close relations with a lot of people at school. It is nice to be in a place that isn’t so cliquish.

The Wrangler:  Have the friendships you’ve made here become closer than those from your old school? 

Madrigal: Extremely, I have surrounded myself with a group of friends that I just feel I belong in.  I have made some “brothers” that I didn’t think I would ever have.

The Wrangler: What was the biggest struggle with moving schools? 

Madrigal: Probably leaving my friends. I mean I’m grateful to have left and met my friends now, but leaving people you’ve been kicking it with for a couple years is still a struggle.

The Wrangler: Do you still keep in contact with friends from home? 

Madrigal: Yeah of course. My mom still lives in the area and it is only a 30 minute drive, so yeah, I see my friends from back home occasionally.

The Wrangler: From inner city to more rural area, has what you enjoy doing in your free time changed at all? 

Madrigal: Of course a little because I am in a different area with different people, but mostly just chilling with a group of friends is what I do, so not a whole lot

The Wrangler: Would you want to have your old friends meet your new friends? 

Madrigal: Yeah that would be pretty cool, but I don’t really know how well they would get along or if there would be like any competition or something.

The Wrangler: Has living here opened your eyes to a new passion and/or hobby? 

Madrigal: Not really. I mean I have always had a thing for music.  I guess I have been exposed to different music by the people I’ve surrounded myself with.

The Wrangler: Would you want to go back to where you used to live? 

Madrigal: No, I wouldn’t want to leave my close friends. I just feel I wouldn’t be the same without them. After a while you start to kind of become one, and without one link it just doesn’t feel right.
