In His Own Words

Today is John David's 19th birthday so here is a picture he chose, a post he wrote himself, with just a little commentary from me.


Hey everyone. My name is John David Hillman. On March 14th, 1992, I was born. Today, I turned 19. I would be spending the day in Canada drinking, (now that I'm legal to drink there), but I lost my passport, so I'll have to make due. ;) (John was born in Canada and is half Canadian himself.)

I live with my mom, and am putting off finding a job and doing college because I'm a lazy teenager. Lucky for my mom, right? (John doesn't mention that he already has a job lined up for the spring.)

I'm agnostic, bisexual, have a tattoo that says "Make love, not war" (the "O" in love is a heart, and the "O" in not is a peace sign) on my right arm, a gaged ear, and a pierced tongue. And yes, they ALL HURT! XD

I spend most of my time at my boyfriend Andy's apartment with his 2 roommates; 2 of my best friends. Other than the 4 of us here, we have 3 snakes, 2 cats, 4 rats (2 are mine. Mom wont let me bring them home... *pout*), and a mouse named "Dinner", because he will one day BE dinner for a snake.

So far for my birthday, I've gotten a good amount of money, a 2TB hard drive, and I bought myself 2 pet rats; Quorra (girl), and Phillip (boy) who I love with all my heart.

Thank you all for the well wishes and "happy birthdays", but make sure you send more to my mom. She puts up with me, so she needs support more than anyone. ;D

-John

Happy birthday, Sunshine, I love you so very much!

Wow! Sounds like our kids are a lot alike! (except for the gender, of course) You've got one great kid there and he's got a pretty amazing mom too! A very happy birthday to both of you!

Very nice post. Has me wondering if there might be a future blogger in the family. ;~)
