This section of my web page is for the people who mean so much to me. Every woman has a special place in her heart for those special people in her life. Before you get the wrong idea, I'm talking about friends, family, and even hero's, not just guys that I've dated(although they are in here too). There are many people who have made deep impressions upon my life. Let me tell you about them. Since this is a country music site, I'll let the first person I tell you about be my favorite country artist. That would be Vince Gill. I think that I first got into his music at around the age of 10 (I'm 20 now). I don't really remember how or why I became fixated on him, but I did. I loved everything about Vince, from his voice to his looks, and most of the stories that were told in his songs. I leaned on his beautiful voice and heartfelt lyrics whenever I felt down. He was my security blanket. It sounds silly, but while some kids ran to their mothers or their friends to make them feel better, I simply put Vince on the radio. He helped me make it through many tough times during my pre-teen and adolsent years. He was my hero, and I often still listen to him if I am feeling particularly bad, or particularly good. One of my dreams in life is to someday meet him in person. That got kind of lenghty! What can I say, I was a kid and I went crazy over Vince. The next guy that I will tell you about used to tease me for being so crazy over Vince. That would be my baby brother Willie Keith Hunt Jr. What can I say about Keith? Well, he is only two years younger than me (he's 18), so he was really my very first friend. Through out childhood, my brother and I were very close,we always stood up for one another, and I thought he was the best friend that I could ever have. I remember the first time I ever slaped a guy, it was because he had made my little brother fall down, and of course that made me mad. As life would have it though, my brother and I have grown apart through the years. The older he gets, the more he thinks its not cool to be friends with his big sister. How many teenage boys want to hang out with their older sisters? Even so, my brother is still one of the most important guys in my life. He was my first friend, and you just can't beat that. The next person who made a deep impression on my life is a friend who I have known since I was only five years old. Her name is Helen Hunt, and she has been the best friend that anyone could ever want to have. Through the good times and the bad, Helen has always been there for me. She is the one person whom I have always been able to lean on. As teen girls we both went through our share of drama and crisis. During these times I often refered to her jokingly as my psychiatrist. I met Helen in kindergarden, and now that we are in college, we are still as close as ever. As a matter of fact I spent most of the day with her today. Helen will always be one of the most important people in my life. After Helen, I would have to say that the next person I was really close to is Mark Adams. He was my first serious boyfriend. We dated for just over a year toward the end of high school. He was someone in whom I could confide, someone to lean on when the world was caving in on me. Mark was a very good influence on me. He tried to teach me to be a more confident person, and to believe in myself. I guess that he was succesful to a degree, but we always have to keep working on our own self-image. Funny thing about Mark and I, we are better friends now that we're apart than we ever were when we dated. I think that now we can see each other as real people, not just as that "special" person that we are all fascinated with when we date. No matter how many twists and turns our lives take, I am sure that there will always be a special place in my heart for Mark Paul Holmes Adams. The next person who has made a drastic impact on my life is one that surprised even me. That would be my little sister Natasha Jacobs. I never would have thought that Tasha and I would ever get along. When we were younger, we always fought, and I called her a brat every chance I got. However as I get older, I am finding that I lean to my sister more and more as a friend than just as a sister. She is at that stage where life is full of drama and crisis for a teenager, and she turns to me for advice, and to vent of course. When I think of how mean I was to her when we were younger, I really wish that I had not treated her so bad. I don't get to see my sister as much as I would like to these days, and I really miss her. She means the world to me. If you read this Tasha, remember how much I love you. Last, but most certainly never least, I would like to tell the world about the most important guy in my life. This is the one person who I feel really connected to. He is the love of my life, and I plan to spend the rest of my life and all of eternity with him if he would grant me that pleasure. His name is John Earl Locklear, and he is simply an amazing guy. We have the best relationship, because we have connected not only as that "special" person in each others lives, but also as friends. John and I knew each other for roughly five years before we started dating and we've been together for nearly two years. He is always happy and carefree, and just radiates with positive energy. His optomism just seems to jump out at you, and makes everyone wish that they could have the same positive outlook on life. I really don't know how he does it. He tells me that his motto is this: "If there is something in your life that you aren't happy with, and you can change it, then change it and be happy. If you can't change it however, don't worry about it, it only brings you down." John means more to me than I could ever express in words. He is my boyfriend, yes, but more importantly, he is my best friend. I Love you John.
