I don’t have Facebook, Snapchat, or Tinder. If you want my attention, this is the place to grab it. I started this blog in 2009 on a trip to Japan for various reasons: I wanted to remember the trip, I wanted to share my experiences, and I wanted to write outside of my then undergraduate career. My blog, if not my journal is my landing page when I need to do something that makes me happy and stay busy. It’s my own version of arts & crafts, especially since I don’t like dumping my ideas on my friends.
I continue to blog, just not publish anything public…until recently. It wasn’t until I moved away from my hometown and met a handful of people that I realized how much communication, especially writing is so crucial for survival.
Jillarae: the quick facts.
My favorite color is forest green. Born again rock climber, bookworm, mountain lover, and stamp collector (please see passport). I dislike text messaging, so call me. I love lists and I write everything down. Words are my weapon of choice, so I appreciate people that are as good as their word. Otherwise, don’t waste my time. I’m a true Leo and take my form as a snake.
What’s your a/s/l? Just kidding. But I think that gives you great context for the generation I grew up in. Thanks blogging, this is America Online…
