Yes, I am American. DON'T PANIC. My name is Jonathan Garcia, I'm 16 and was born in Miami, Florida. Both of my parents were born in Cuba during the '50s and:

Sarcastic but Sadly True Answer: came to this wonderful speck of dirt that gave the world McDonalds and Wal-Mart
Also true, but without a cheap jab answer: came to the United States so they could try to DO SOMETHING with their lives.

My mom became a doctor. No life, basically. That's ok, it makes two of us. My dad, on the other hand, got the much...better job: President of Marvel Comics Relations in Europe. I even met Stan Lee. Hurray.

Now for the sad part: Last year my dad died of lung cancer. Great way to close my freshman year in high school, don't you think? Since then i've been distracting myself with electronics and computers. I'm pretty decent with a spray can...for painting computer chassis I mean, not vandalizing public property. What kind of human being do you take me for? Anyways, I've gotten a little bit seasoned with building desktop computers and might soon try my hands on a laptop project. I enjoy strategy and RPG games, but the occasional game of Unreal Tournament 2004 never hurts anyone. Not in real life, atleast.

Oh, and I have ADHD and bi-polar. Fun!
