Now that the present is out of the way I'll let you know a little more about my past. I am from the Jersey shore, hence the nickname Jersey Dave. New Jersey gets a bum rap as being some filthy place, but I can't imagine a better area to have grown up in. I am the third of four children. I'm extremely proud of each of my siblings and where they are today. Without getting into a bunch boring details, they have each distinguished themselves in their preset situations. My mother is a true saint. Time and time again she has put her children ahead of herself and for that I am forever indebted to her. Recently she flew into Gainesville to care for me after I underwent jaw surgery. I dreaded the visit, but now that she has left I realize just what she did for. My father is lawyer and has worked on some high profile cases. He represented Mary Beth Whitehead in the Baby M Case. I mention this particular case because it convinced me that I never wanted to be an attorney. Before this case I dreamt of following in my fathers footsteps, a very significant moment in my life and one reason I am where I am today. My father has always worked for what he has believed in first and money last. His commitment to justice has molded me into the crusader I am today. So all blame rests on his shoulders...just kidding.
It seems like time to wrap this up. I consider myself a lucky person. I have great friends, a wonderful family, and a great outlook for my career. I don't put much stock in material possessions, that is evident by my wardrobe. What I do put my faith in is the relationships I have with others. I know I would be nowhere if I didn't have the help of the people around me. This sentiment is what drives me so hard. I want to repay those I love by being the best possible person I can be. I am moving from Gainesville soon and it is going to be extremely difficult to leave all I have behind. But new places mean new relations. It will also mean a new chapter in my life...I'll let you know about it sometime.
