|Using the who, what, where, when, and why, of earlier school days, I included "where" simply thinking I'd answer with the name of the city in which I live, but now I'm thinking it should probably be a little more complete than "San Diego, California."|
|(Of course, if you haven't already, I would suggest reading at least part of the diary before reading these background sections. Reading this first is akin to going up to someone and telling them about you childhood before they even have a chance to say "Hello".)|
Where was I born/reared?Richmond, Kentucky... just south of Lexington, right smack dab in the middle of the state. Not as rural as you would imagine, but we did live a few miles outside of the city, so things like cable TV were amazing to me. I, of course, was a "city boy" and hated the farm and horse training that my dad did. So, come time to go to college, I applied in the Northeast to seven schools and none in Kentucky. I got into all seven and ended up choosing Boston University.
Where was I when I started my web site?It was my second semester at Boston University (January 1995) when I started my web site. I had my very first real date (with a boy), and he was into computers. He showed me what a web site was (and how to find naked pictures, I admit). The next thing I knew, http://www.webcom.com/~justin/ was mine and I started my site.
Where am I living now?
I just moved to San Diego, California after having lived in Los Angeles for the past four years. I never really cared for L.A. much and so after I moved out of my ex-'s house in August of 2000, I finished the last class for my degree at USC then headed down to San Diego in February (2001). As of this writing, I haven't lived here long enough to get a complete take on it, but from what I've seen so far, I think I like this coastal city... but I won't be moving to Pacific Beach anytime soon.
