Let's talk about me!  
Seeing as I've added a few new people and I don't have an intro post to begin with, I figured I'd whip one up quickly. I'll run through myself, the people I talk about most often, and then my fandoms. Sound good? Good.


About Me


     My name is Jessica, but people call me Jess, Jessie, or most recently, JD. I live in Methuen, Massachusetts, which is on the border of New Hampshire. We're about half an hour outside of Boston, for comparative purposes. I'm 24 years old and I live with my mother and my brother, Ryan. I am exceptionally liberal. I used to call myself open-minded, willing to embrace everything, but I've come to realize that I'm a severely close-minded liberal.
     I work at Staples and I have for 7 years. It's been my only job ever and I've just recently gone full-time for the company. I work as a front-end manager, or the Customer Service Lead. Basically, when customers are unhappy, I'm the person that gets called over by the cashiers.
     I just graduated this past May! I now have my bachelor's degree in English (writing) with a minor in Business Admin. A little background on my college career: I started out as a Chemistry major and lasted a year in a half in that program. I switched to the English (writing) program and picked Business Admin as my minor. I don't really know what I want to do with it, but I have the degree! :D
     I'm generally a nice person. I've been told recently that I'm too nice. My issue is that I tend to care too much about things that I really shouldn't. If I love you, I adore you. If I don't like you, that's too bad for you. I can be a major bitch if I don't like you, but I will move the earth if I do.
     I'm so in love with New York City; it's sick. I haven't gone too recently (the last time was in August of 2010), but I plan on going back soon. I started going for Broadway, but now I just love the feel of the city. I would love to live there at some point, but goodness knows, it's so so expensive there.
     I've always been a fan of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Just recently, I started to really look to them as serious role models. Two strong, funny, and intelligent women? How can you not? Meeting either of them and just being able to shake their hands would be a dream. But, really. I'd probably cry and sweat and pass out, if I were to actually meet them.


Family & Friends



     Because I like to see faces with names, that's my mom on the left and my brother, Ryan, on the right. My mother and I have gotten along better recently. Not that we were on bad terms, but it didn't take much for her to set me off. People think she's funny, and I do too at times, but she's my mother, so I'm allowed to find her obnoxious and/or annoying. She's a Republican and I am not, so here is where we butt heads most often.
     My brother is 21 and we grew up close and we've stayed that way. He will always be there for me and is always willing to help me out. Of course, I have to nag him, but that's what big sisters are for. He has a girlfriend (Amelia) and they've been together for 5 years now.




     My dad, his wife, and their kids live about 15 minutes away from me. My parents have been divorced since I was 6 and he's been remarried since I was 11. My dad is the more understanding parent, not that my mother isn't, but he's so easy-going and relaxed. We share a lot of the same views, so there are some things that I'm more comfortable talking to him about.
     Those two precious kids above are my half-sister, Cailey (11), and my half-brother, Jason (9). My step-mother, Linda, is Asian, hence their gorgeous features. I can't even stand to look at them; they're so adorable. These pictures are old, as I can't find more recent pictures of them right now. I lovingly call them my Asian babies, though never to their faces.
     My step-mother is a hard love. She means well, she does, but she's never had kids in college before. She thinks we should be able to breeze through things. So. With me starting my sixth year in college, she never fails to nag me about when I'll be done. She's intensely smart and she's, generally, a nice lady, but she gives me severe anxiety.




     These two ladies are my lifelines. First, on the left, is Ashley. I have been friends with Ashley since we were in fourth grade, so about 15 years. We've had our ups and downs, but I know that if I ever needed anything, she would be there for me, just like I'd be there for her. Her family is like my second family and no matter how long I may go without seeing her or them, I can always fit right back in like I saw them yesterday.
     The second, on the right, is Amy. I've been friends with Amy since the end of eighth grade. We had nearly every class together our freshman year of high school, purely by chance. I feel like she's my other half. We have so much in common and she never fails to make me laugh. She goes to school with me still and she has a boyfriend of about two years, Brian.

Ok so I guess its my turn to talk about bein to lazy to make a welcome post. lol I really don't think I am. So at the end of the comment I'll give you a mini bio. I always feel weird when I know things about someone and they don't know about me.

Ok just to tell your step mom its a myth college is 4 years. If you kill your self you can get done in 4. If you change your major or take a shit load of classes you will never need *points to self* you'll be lucky to get out. I think it took me 5 years for undergrad. Now I'm in grad school I still count it . . .so I'm never leaving college. *shrug*

I have to ask. . .which Pride and Prejudice movie is your fav? I love all the movies you listed but Pee-Wee's Big Adventure ... haven't seen that one in years, but aren't they like making a brief Broadway show about it? or just Pee-Wee? They did! I just left this comment to go see. The show closed Jan 2. lol Random!

Ok about me. . . 23 (24 Jan 22) Social Studies teacher, grad school for special education, live in NY, Queens (under NYC jurisdiction) (people always crack me up when I say that, I'm like its the 5 boroughs that make up NYC sweetness). Loves Bon Jovi. Loves every show that comes on NBC on Thursday nights. Love animals (I have a lot cats and 2 dogs). Live with my mother (love her to death). My BF I've known since 7th grade (I believe she's the only one in the world who gets me . . you know through the crazy ;) ) Oh and I can't spell to save my life, yours, the world! I'm dyslexic too, so there is no hope for the spelling or the grammar! lol I hope that doesn't bug you. I know people who freak if things aren't spelled right and I'm all like . . . oops. I can't think of anything else. Anything you wanna know ask, I'm very laid back, its cool.

ending really long comment . . . now!

I figure I'll eventually go back to school for grad school, but I'm so ready to be done for a little while!

I do believe I prefer the BBC version of P&P, but the Keira version was really well done too! Pee Wee does/did have a Broadway show! Haha. HBO is filming it and it'll air, eventually. Not too sure when...

That's still totally NYC, for sure. I'd live there. Just sayin'.

Spelling and grammar don't bother me too much. Yes, I'm an English major, but unless it's some formal essay or something, you write how you write!

Aw cute picture!

I'm in my 6th year of college too and my family bugs me about when I will finish. You have a great love of movies, books, and music we also have in common. That was a great read and hope to get to know you better! :)
jezzibellajezzibella on January 6th, 2011 06:04 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D

I'm pumped about my new friends. We've all got a lot in common. I'm sure we'll find out more!
Myamsmya on May 13th, 2011 04:49 am (UTC)
I should probably make one of these too, just so people know what in the world I'm talking about. haha.

You seem lovely :D I am too nice sometimes too, which is why people use me like a doormat sometimes. Learning to stand my ground now though. =D look forward to reading more of your posts.

jezzibellajezzibella on May 15th, 2011 02:48 pm (UTC)
I figure it covers the main people I talk about, so I don't have to re-explain every time I mention them! :P

I'm in the process of learning to stand up for myself too! I look forward to yours as well! :DD

Great intro post! It's always good to have a face to go with a name :)

Your step-sister and step-brother are sooooo cute!
I'm glad you have an okay relationship with your dad's wife. It's usually not the case and that must be draining!

jezzibella: [actor] amy adams fulljezzibella on June 19th, 2011 05:17 am (UTC)
I think so too! :D

Aren't they just adorable!? Oh god. I want to squeeze them.
She's gotten a lot better as the years have gone on and her own kids have gotten older, for sure!
