about jessie doing life

Hello, potential new friend!  My name’s Jessie, welcome to my space (not myspace).

I’m another one of those millennials (an older one admittedly) who grew up being told that I was a special snowflake and could do whatever I set my mind to.  Well here I am, world, doing what I set my mind to!

I’m a lot of different things. . .
an artist
a person with bipolar, not a bipolar person
a serial crafty entrepreneur
a feminist who believes that anyone who wants equality is by definition, a feminist
an eternal optimist who can find the bright side of an eclipse
a college graduate who chose their major based on interest and not on career potential (psychology major with sociology and women’s studies minors)
a former roller derby skater/ref/NSO/announcer/newby trainer
a novice bicycle enthusiast
a tester of boundaries and exceeder of expectations
an INFJ if you like the Myers-Briggs or high I if you dig the DISC
equal parts talker and listener
and pretty much the best advice-giver you will ever meet.

jessie does life is all about sharing my adventures (ok, mostly misadventures) and what I’ve (hopefully) learned from them. No one is perfect and I feel like so often the perfect portrait of ourselves is all anyone sees. This here is my behind-the-curtains opportunity to express the truth that sometimes, life’s a mess and you’re not alone in that struggle. My catharses, and then self-realizations that I can act on, come best to me at the tips of my fingers when I put them to my keyboard so I’m learning to embrace this (this and an actual real-life therapist).

If you’re so inclined to join me on these misadventures, welcome! I hope you’ll feel like this is a safe space for you because I’ll be sharing a lot of failures – so I’m considering it MY safe space!

Also, this is my recently adopted three-year-old Siberian kitty, Ellie.  Ellie is what her previous pet parents called her, but I’ve re-dubbed her Lady Elizabeth Fluffface Von Buttonnose.  She’s pretty much the cutest cat I’ve ever had (she’s also the only cat I’ve been a parent to, so there’s that).  We’re bess frens.
