Stranger 59/100 – Tony

100 Strangers - TonyOur next stranger works at a local coffee house. I approached him while he was playing Pokémon Go with a friend. “We did a couple of legendary raids…”

Meet Tony.

What do you do in your free time? “Hang out with friends mainly.”

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Keep your chin up. Everything’s going to be ok. It’s something I always tell myself when things get kind of hard.”

What is your biggest challenge right now? “Being an adult. {laughs}”

What’s the hardest thing about being an adult? “Just realizing that work is just like school. So I’m really doing the same thing I was doing as a kid… except now I get paid.”

What would you do if you had a million dollars? “I wouldn’t do anything different. Money’s not a big deal. It just means I have a lot more of it. I can’t think of anything off the top of my head that I would do special.”

What are you goals? Where do you want to be in ten years? “Just surviving. Keeping comfortable. No huge aspirations.”

What is your passion? “In between coffee and cartoons. Anything from kids cartoons to adult cartoons, Japanese Anime and just your average American cartoons.”

Technical Notes: This photo was taken in an open alleyway in front of a dark window. His friend was kind enough to hold the reflector for me to light Tony’s face more evenly.
