Hi, I’m Jenifer. Yes. My mom named me Jenifer meaning that I have spent the rest of my life saying: “Jenifer. with one ‘n’.” When I was 14 I started going by Jen hoping that would work, but alas, that was often written down as Jenn. Really, though I didn’t pick it, I prefer Jenifer. Who needs the second ‘n’ anway?
I am 26 and have been blogging for about 5 years now. This started as a blog to keep my friends up-to-date while I was living in England and marrying my husband. It has since morphed into a blog about my life in general. I am what you would describe as mouthy. I needed an outlet. We both tend to swear a lot. Sorry, but not really. Perhaps that will change when we have babies. My college guidance counselor once described me as “a pistol” to my parents.
I am a law student, in my final year. Be prepared for many anxiety filled posts about that.
I have been diagnosed with moderate anxiety. I blog about my day-to-day dealing with anxiety. I am not a doctor.
My husband is British. I met him studying abroad. He is the most patient man I know.
When I was 14 I received a kitten from my parents. I hoped and hoped that one day when I was an adult he could live with me in my grown up apartment. That hope came true when I started law school. Stormy is about as neurotic as I am but I love him to bits. I try to keep posts about him to a minimum – I don’t want to be that girl.
June 1, 2011 I had a vertical sleeve gastrectomy. This is a fancy term for weight loss surgery. I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I have obesity on both sides of my family. I figured I might as well nip it in the bud. I have since lost 95 pounds. More on that here.
I love love blogging and meeting people on the interwebs so stop by and say hello as often as you’d like.
