Introduction and Whatnot

It's always good to start off anything with an introduction, so... I'm Jessie, a 20 year old scorpio residing in Georgia, USA. I attend Kennesaw State University, and I'm majoring in communications and minoring in professional writing. I love reading, writing, and blogging (obviously), and my favorite TV shows are Boy Meets World and The Big Bang Theory. Cheerleading is my sport, but I also played soccer for 15 years roughly as well as a season of volleyball in high school, and I like to ride horses, preferably western, especially barrel racing. I have a massive wanderlust, and I will travel this entire planet. Elephants are my favorite animal, and I like the color yellow even though it doesn't look good on me. (Cool colors are better for fair skin.) And now this paragraph looks long, so I'll let my future blogging speak for the rest of me.

And that brings me to the purpose of this blog. If you know me in real life you know that I blog and write like a fiend. I have a blog on tumblr, which I've had for two years, and I've been keeping a handwritten journal since my freshman year of high school. Actually, a week from today will mark five years of journaling. Clearly, I document my life really well. So why start yet another blog? Good question. I'm not even sure I can answer it right now. Part of it probably has to do with my desire to keep things neat, clean, and organized. Part of it probably has to do with me wanting a place to do more serious blogging. Yes, I do blog seriously on my tumblr, but it's not fully serious, you know what I mean? But I think most of it has to do with me entering this new phase of my life, a new chapter if you will. I'm definitely morphing into a different person, a better person, and I want to start this better person off on a clean slate. And I want to share this change with you (whoever "you" may be: a random reader, people from my real life, mom?). I'm realizing so many things about myself and about life, and I want to be able to share what I'm learning and get feedback (maybe) on it. I want people to know what I'm going through because it's such a big deal to me, and I'm beyond proud of myself because I can see my growth and my progress; I just can't (and don't want to) keep it all to myself. (Or maybe it's just a fame complex. Who really knows?)

So here's to a new blog, a new me. I'm not fully sure where all of this will go, but hopefully it will at least keep me motivated, and maybe (or maybe not. I don't want to get cocky.) I'll be able to inspire a person or two. We'll see...

Stay golden,


  1. Good job and looking forward to your blog growing.

  2. Hi Jessie,

    I just found your blog via some other blog and I walsy like to go back to the beginning to read sth about the person behind the blog hehe

    When I read the title of your blog I thought immediately of Boy Meets World, I used to watch that series everyday after school when I was a teen. And I'm a big fan of TBBT :)
    I love traveling as well and always enjoy to read other people's journeys.

    Have a lovely week,
