Who Am I?
Hi! For those of you who don't really know too much about me, I figured I could recap a couple things since I am sure there are new readers here and I haven't written too much about myself.
There isn't too much to me. I am a very simple person. My first love is traveling. Everything I do and look forward to has to do with going somewhere or getting on a plane to a 3rd world country. If I could go back in life to college (even though I loved college) I would have traveled abroad.
My names Jennifer. I live in New York right now, slightly outside of the city. I will be 26 in March, I'm an Aries. I have a bunch of tattoos and my next one will be "Pura Vida" on my right side! My blue eyes are my claim to fame ;)
My second love is coffee shops. I love them. I have worked at 4 of them already. I had to stop because it wasn't paying enough to live where I live and work only at a coffee shop. So sad. But I love them and I hope to one day own one.
I love animals. I volunteered at the dog shelter by me for a couple years and loved it. I wanted to be a vet but i shouldn't be trusted with a scalpel, so i went for teaching... ha ha.
I am in grad school to be a teacher for kids in grades 1-6. I can't wait. When I was in college I wanted to go to Costa Rica and teach English but I had rents and bills and was never able to leave. It's taken me this long to realize what I wanted to do with life.... for now.
I love music. Reggae has been my love for years. It all started when my best friend and I lived next to this guy Francis who was from Zambia and always sat outside drinking Budweiser and listening to Bob Marley and Steel Pulse. It changed my life.
I hate the winter, love the summer, and loveeeee the beach. You could find me at any beach anywhere.
I love to read and blog. I never have time to read but I always try to make time and am trying to expand my reading selection.
My loves of my life...
And my loves..
So that is pretty much me.
I hope that sort of sums up me for you in case you were wondering a bit of who I am or what my deal was!
