Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, nowhere in my life story is the line, "Jed, move away from
there, Beverly Hills is the place you oughta be." Haha. But I think
I've had a pretty rich life anyway. (Just think how rich Jed would
be with gas where it is right now! update - he is getting poorer
with oil falling) I am fortunate to have had a rich childhood full
of family and friends and for too brief of a time the fortune to
know my wonderful grandparents. I grew up in Arkansas and still
think of myself as an Arkansan, but I appreciate Oklahoma's beauty
and what it has to offer. Still, Go Hogs! I am well educated (two
graduate degrees) and contain an intellectual curiosity and a love
for learning. I've been around the world in books and in physical
reality, which I think gives me a broader outlook on things than if
I had just stayed in my little hometown. I do still love things
that I grew up loving. The outdoors, the Ouachita river, fishing,
gravel backroads, a catfish dinner with all the trimmings, a walk
in the woods with a dog, college football in the fall, and some of
those old gospel songs get to me still even though I no longer
consider myself religious. The jobs I've had so far in life have
pretty much been dedicated to education in some form or another.
I've done everything from handing out library cards to teaching
English composition on an aircraft carrier. Right now I try to
counsel students towards completing a four year degree.
If you want to get alliterative about it, I am patient, punctual,
pondering, prudent, and progressive. Outside of that, I also have a
good sense of humor, a good depth of character, and a great sense
of loyalty to family and friends.
If this recently found quote (A.C. Grayling, British Philosopher)
hits a chord with you as an approach to the world, we should talk.
"Love well, seek the good in all things, harm no others, think for
yourself, take responsibility, respect nature, do your upmost, be
kind, be courageous: at least sincerely try." Beats the hell out of
the ten commandments, if you ask me.
