Today please welcome jenn, one of my first blogging buddies from 5 years ago. She's one of my minions...
the boring bullshit: i am a forty-year-old resident of the woodlands, texas who works as a sales associate at a children’s furniture store. i studied liberal arts at cottey college in nevada, missouri, where i got my associate’s degree, and english and studio art at sam houston state university, where i got my bachelor’s. in the past, i've worked at a printing company, a couple of newspapers and a handful of bookstores. i've been described as smart, serious and snarky. i dig fiction, film and football.
favorite quote. i think we live our lives so afraid to be seen as weak that we die perhaps without ever having been seen at all (james spader as alan shore in boston legal).
a favorite passage from a book. if i had known how, i would have joined grant in prayer. i would have prayed for him, for his goodness, his loyalty, and his improbable love. i would have prayed for him to give up, to let go, and to start over. i might have even prayed for forgiveness.
but i didn't know how to pray (victoria jones in the language of flowers, p. 195).
i'm stranded on a desert island and can bring one person, one book and one food item (that never goes bad and is in constant supply) or plant: robert downey, jr; eleanor and park by rainbow rowell; chicken spaghetti.
five sources of inspiration: my victorian literature professor, tragedy, stories, rejection, chaos.
the story of my life in twenty five words or less: small-town texas girl struggles with social awkwardness and medical issues. graduates high school, then college despite some educators' beliefs that she couldn’t, and then she flounders.
five of my favorite posts: four letter words, a truth universally acknowledged, little moments (a guest post featured on the life of bon), forty in forty (the first and the rest), and let me believe. let me forget.
couple questionnaires/character studies: isabel and reese, august and seth, piper and matthew. about isabel. about reese.
