An Open Letter to the Old 30 Yr. Old Me

Dear 30 Year Old Jessica, It’s been a long time since you’ve been to this website to post. I know that you always think about it and want to return to it, so I figured the new you can jump start it once again. Turning 30 was – for lack of better words – depressing. I felt as if I had nothing together in my life. And while I might have FELT that way, I actually had some of it together. But for the most part, it was not a good year. Did good things happen? Yes. Were there good … Continue reading An Open Letter to the Old 30 Yr. Old Me

An Open Letter to My Old 29 Yr. Old Self

Dear Old 29 Yr. Old Self: You’ve had quite the year! You left one job and started at another. You also celebrated your first anniversary of marriage and went to the Bahamas! You also ended the year by watching Trump get elected into office. And I don’t know when it happened, but at some point, you matured a bit and grew up a little bit more. But if I have to be honest with you, I’m a little bit disappointed. Most of my years, I’ve been slaying it. And 29, I don’t know what happened, but you slacked… a lot! … Continue reading An Open Letter to My Old 29 Yr. Old Self

Remember When…

I don’t know about you, but there are times when I just randomly think of a time that was YEARS ago when I did something stupid, and I re-live that stupid moment. And then I just feel that embarrassment all over again. I do this at random times. Something will trigger it, and I’ll remember that time I was walking into the cafeteria in high school for study hall, and I was distracted and crashed into about 6 metal chairs that made such a loud crash I was pretty sure someone thought a mini-explosion occurred. Don’t know why – but … Continue reading Remember When…

An Open Letter to My Old 28 Yr. Old Self

Dear Old 28 Yr. Old Self: Wow, girl! Seriously! You did some pretty big things! You got a new job, got married, went to Ireland, and got another tattoo. And those are the high lights. There are other little moments in there such as dying my hair red, cutting my hair (again), working on the 29 Before 29 list. Twenty-eight, you were seriously working hard. And I honestly can’t believe how much you accomplished. It was a very busy year, and there were a lot of high points, and a lot of low points. But you worked hard and you … Continue reading An Open Letter to My Old 28 Yr. Old Self

An Open Letter to the Old 27 Year Old Me

Dear 27: Wow. It has been one hell of a year. So many things have happened that it’s just amazing how much occurs in just 12 months! Twenty-seven, you got engaged! Way to go, girl! You got yourself off of unemployment, and into a full-time job! You’ve kept up hope for as long as you could, and you got through the rough times. And from what I can remember, this was not a year of tears. You did good. I’m not disappointed in you in any way. Times were hard this year, but you made the best of what you … Continue reading An Open Letter to the Old 27 Year Old Me

The Rest is History

Not too long ago, we were doing a sort of ‘spring cleaning’ around the holidays. While cleaning out the closet, I found my very first diary. When I opened it to find out when I started writing, I found out that I was 7. I was 7 years old when my mom gave me a diary to write it. She believed every girl needed a diary. I remember asking her what I was supposed to write about. I mean, I was 7 and this whole diary-thing was a rather new concept. I mean, write about your day? What does that … Continue reading The Rest is History

What Would You Say?

A woman I work with was talking about her current situation regarding a certain gentleman in her life. She doesn’t know what to do, and she has all these feelings, but things are just not happening. She was talking about it to absolutely everyone, and just felt like things could change. Basically, in a nut shell, this guy was just an asshole to her for a week, and since it’s been a while that she’s had a guy interested in her, she wanted to hold on as long as possible. Everyone wanted to be positive for her. They told her … Continue reading What Would You Say?

Fall Out Boy

So, John bough Fall Out Boy tickets a while back. I asked work NUMEROUS times to leave early on the day, and they wouldn’t allow me to do it. They kept saying no. Disappointed, we worked really hard to get down there on time before the start of the show. We hurried as much as we could. We made it down there, and we found a little spot on the lawn to put our blanket down. We were drinking our beers, and enjoying the music of Paramore. Shortly after Paramore finished, there was a short intermission. These two staff members … Continue reading Fall Out Boy

Throwback: The Duck

Every time John and I make our way down to the point, we remember The Duck. If you weren’t there to see it, I’m really sorry, but you can look at our nice pics! I know it might sound stupid to see a giant inflated Duck, but let me tell you… it was fun! The whole idea behind the duck was to bring people together through everything we share – a childhood. The duck was to resemble our youth and the current youth and the future youth. We all know about the floating ducky in our bathtubs, and this was … Continue reading Throwback: The Duck
