Justin's Life


Using the who, what, where, when, and why, of earlier school days, I included "where" without really thinking much more about it than "Los Angeles, California" but where should probably be a little more complete than that.
(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 live in Los Angeles (LA to everyone who lives here) and go to the Univ. of Southern California, so I'll be here for a little bit, at least. To tell the truth, I don't really care for LA all that much as far as people are concerned. It's one of the most unfriendly cities I've encountered, and everyone seems to want to stay cubbied up in their own little world. I think that once I'm done with school and have some money, I'll find a place within an hour or two drive of LA proper. I just think by doing that that I could find real people to hang out with while still taking part in what LA has to offer business/financial-wise.
