JESS & THE CITY
Hi, and welcome! I’m Jessica, Jess, or Jessie if you’re a guy with long hair who was in an 80’s band. I wrote my first book when I was 9. It was titled “Why the Sun Burns” a Sci-fi story between, well… good and evil. Since then, I’ve gone on to write blogs, romantic comedy screenplays, a television series, and 3 books. So why do I find writing the About Me section so hard?
Good and Evil.
On the one hand, I want to inspire you and share lifestyle blogs, cool finds, and products that will make your life great. On the other hand, lives the reality that to be authentic and connect with you, I must share the pain and fear that I experience like a daily roller coaster ride since turning 50.
On the surface, I’m an energetic, fun, glass full and overflowing, single, never been married, no kids, dog mom, who digs run-on sentences and weird punctuation… I love travel, fashion, my hydroponic garden, inspiring thousands from stage, and my friends & family. My job is great, and my creativity pours out of me via journals, art supplies, fashion statements and social media posting…
Below the surface, I struggle on the daily because my parents, who are about to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary and I’ve considered my best friends, both have mild dementia and I feel like I’m failing them. My body has been dependent on anxiety medication for over a decade, so everything I do to keep my body healthy falls just short, because the medications cancel out the good. I’m a complete romantic at heart but the mention of dating makes me cringe into my therapist’s couch so deeply, that my entire body tightened up faster than a Chinese finger trap just writing about it.
Wanna hear more? You’re in the right place, and I’m so glad we found each other.
