About: I'm Jenna, a twenty-something-year-old from the Midwest & I have the flag of Argentina on my car. Life? It's a daily discovery of being an "adult", learning the love of passion, striving for optimism, & experiencing heavy doses of happiness & reality all at once. Dreams? To be content. Currently on file: finding a "career" with a liberal arts degree.


Bits & pieces put together to present a semblance of a whole.

El mundo es un gran pastel, servite, pero no mucho.

Five days before we leave: 

"N, one last time. Do I need to bring a swimsuit?" 
"Yes, you should pack one." (The past four answers were no.) 

Hey there $25 expedited shipping for a J. Crew two-piece that cancelled the 20% off discount. The joys of having nothing in your closet that fits. 

YOLO

To some people this is huge, to me it’s a huge accomplishment. I’ve never been this small in my life (was a size 12 in fourth grade).

I am a woman. I am a practicing attorney. I am the only woman in my office over the age of 35 who doesn’t color her hair. I have some gray, but not a lot yet, and I never seriously considered coloring my hair until this job. I don’t want to: it’s expensive and a pain in the ass to keep up. About a year ago, I was in court, and a female attorney walked in with curly, bobbed, naturally gray hair, and her mere act of publicly displaying her natural hair color seemed not just unusual but defiant. Meanwhile many men in my office and in the courts have gray hair, and I doubt anyone thinks twice about it.

I’m on Day 2 of no sugar/grains/dairy.

And I don’t want to kill anyone!

Imagine that.

(Day-by-day is at lifenosugar.wordpress.com.)

I ended up at Loft again. Somehow.

I ended up at Loft again. Somehow.

- Went into work on a day off, and people started showing me broken product, asking me about things that happened earlier in the morning. I said no and walked away. Good self-control, Jenna. 
- Have been plateaued now for a good three months. Made some good goals & rewards & stocked up on eggplant & avocado at TJ’s. 
- News flash: I went to JUUT salon in Uptown for a $25 haircut Saturday, after Kara recommended me to check it out. It was an out-of-this-world experience & you need to make an appointment right meow. 
- I went to high school with the stylist. & a coworker went to high school with my Zumba instructor. Life is small when you’re an adult in the city. 
- I had to scrape my car of ice & snow this morning. Ummm, it’s already almost May… 
- Loving my new Loft purchases. 10lbs & I get more jeans!!! (Someone please keep me accountable so I can get them, please, please, and thank you.) 
- Off to dinner with a good friend I worked with years ago. He’s a foodie, so naturally we’re checking out a dive bar in the neighborhood. A dive bar that serves lots of lettuce, of course. 
- Next day off is Monday. Yes, I work on Easter. Yes, my coworker and I are bringing in lots of food for our employees. Counting down the days.
