Throughout history men have answered the question, “So, can you tell me a little about yourself?” with a simple statement of who they are and where they work. I’m not going do that because it would be boring. Besides, I don’t define myself by my current occupation. My name is Jonathan Harvey, I live in Kingsland Georgia, and I am an amazing fellow.
What makes me so amazing is not my amazing sense of fashion, although that may be a small part of it. What makes me an amazing fellow is the amazing life that I lead. I’m one of the few people on the planet who can honestly say that, to a small extent, I’ve done everything that I said I wanted to do as I was growing up. I’ve also done a lot of things that I didn’t want to do, but I don’t like to dwell on that kind of stuff. Surprisingly enough, even with all this “doing”, I’ve still found time to watch many hours of quality television.
When I was young, I wanted to act. I’m not a movie star but I’ve done community theater and standup comedy. I’ve even performed comic skits on public access television. Though the spot light has been a little one, more like a small floodlight someone has installed on their garage, I enjoy my time in it. Currently, I’ve been known to walk around as a literary Christmas character during St. Mary’s Georgia’s “Christmas in the Park”.
When I was young, I wanted to be a writer. I’m currently working on the final draft of my first book, Shades of Plaid (A Very Unconventional Weekly Journey into Christian Living). I write a daily pseudo-inspirational™ email and blog that has over one hundred subscriptions from people all over the United States. I also write an online comic, The Terrible Turtle Conspiracy, with my friend Joleene Naylor. The comic is updated every Friday. I look forward to being published and becoming a big “Book Star”.
When I was young, I was inspired by a teacher and I decided I wanted to teach. Since then I’ve taught Sunday school and have been the children’s minister at my local church. Also, I’ve had the grand opportunity of conducting training at work.
Finally when I was young, I wanted to become a ruthless vampire hunter. I’m thinking this one might never happen. That is three out of four, though, and that’s not too shabby.
