His first stories
In the 1980s, Ricardo Arjona was passing through the corridors of the USAC and the streets of the capital dressed injeans, joking to his friends. The only thing I was not doing well in their studies of advertising.
22 years ago, Edgar Ricardo Arjona Morales, 20, attended classes in the second semester in the School of Communication Sciences at the University of San Carlos (USAC).
When you enrolled, was assigned the card 8.41769 million. Group was distinguished by his long hair, 1.92 m tall and because inthe free periods used to take his guitar and sing, mostly, their own songs. Already by that time his friends were listening exclusively Let me say I love you.
At that time university, 1984-1986, no one believed that boy "skinny" go so far with his music.The only one who sensed what was perhaps the same Arjona, who, as they tell their friends was a man who had great faith and was convinced oftheir artistic talents. "He had clearly defined goals, was persevering and full of conviction," says Norma De Leon, a classmate at the time.

In 1984 he enrolled at the School of Communication Sciences, who then worked where today the Teachers' Training School for Media Education (EFPEM), to specialize in Advertising. FredyMorales, who was his professor Copywriting in 1986, said that the report notes that course is settled that only accumulated 17 points Arjona area of 60 possible, and therefore had no right to the final exam. "I was thinking more in music and sports in school."
There was no doubt that his obsession with success in music has absorbed. His colleagues say that often, in free periods or after school,stayed in the lounge or the library, and told them: "Come ... close the door and hear" and then performed his compositions. Let me say I love you, S.O.S. Rescue me, and Jesus will not give no substantive verb were some parts that his colleagues and friends of the U were privileged to listen first.
The creative capacity of this "story writer", as it is known today, was inexhaustible. So, hisfriends find it easy to bring to mind some songs that were recorded only in the memories of that time student. Samayoa Stuardo letters still evokes the pillow, the love is gone and he composed for the USACE, which was called It's time to be better. Arjona was his custom, after singing, his buddies ask: What do you think?, And many times he answered: "You hear ugly", but they did it in jest.
