Favorite Part of Growing up:
Listening to the radio; I was obsessed! I remember my very first “boom box” that my parents bought me and I’d run home from school and immediately turn it on and imitate the Radio DJ’s. I wish I had those old tapes still… LOL!!! OH BROTHER!!!
What I Do to Relax:
I watch a LOT of TV. It’s bad, I know… I also listen to music and work on mixtapes too. [download some of them NOW on www.Mixcrate.com/JABAone] I also LOVE to cook and bake… I get to zone out and focus in the kitchen. [NOW REMEMEBER… I said ‘I LOVE to cook…’ and LOVING what you do… and BEING GOOD AT IT are 2 different things… Just sayin…] I also try to read a lot too… it makes me feel smart. =/
