Sometimes I feel like I remember bits and pieces of being a baby, but the first memories I really have are of my 3rd birthday party.
Well my primary goal with my journey here is getting into shape. I want to lose a total of 55 pounds by september. Now I’m not saying I’m superficial or anything along the lines but I need a good confidence boost, I would love to be in shape not just for my career but for me. I’ve always been the “fat kid” when I was in 10th grade I weighed in at 300 pounds, I played soccer and ended up losing 100 pounds. In 11th grade I didn’t neccessarily get complemented well I did, but not in a way that really made me feel good about myself. People said things like “Damn he lost a lot of weight” as flattered as I am that you noticed that you were no longer in my gravitational pull, it’s not what I wanted.
I want so much more than that, I want to be able to run around and not feel like an elephant trampled me. I want to be seen as a real person not as the “fat kid” that does cool magic tricks. I want to be known for who I am (John Shackelford if you have been keeping track) I am a pretty nice guy, I accept just about everyone, I have enough life experiences so far that I can relate to just about anyone. When you think of John Shackelford I want you to think of me, does that make any sense? Seriously google the name John Shackelford there is a UFC fighter and me and several others, although I think John David Shackelford and Myself are the most notable. Go ahead look up John David he is a nice guy plus he’s a badass UFC fighter! As much as I would love to hop into a ring and knock some bitches out and then have them pick a card being the multifacited type that I am I doubt I could put in that much work and I like my face too much for that.
I have several other goals as well, I want to take the entertainment industry and shake it up a bit letting the world know that a Magician like myself can perform with america’s top 40 and still rock your socks, which thus far I have only scratched the surface. SO through this long winded rant I am telling you, I John Shackelford will take this world by storm one step at a time. All the while I will be ranting and raving about it as much as possible : )
I will also include videos and pictures and maybe even podcasts, I am also thinking of hosting an online late night show once a week, but I would like to gain some popularity first.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this I promise next time I won’t sound like such a premadonna : )
