I'm Jess, 29 years old (will be celebrating my 30th birthday on July 31st), Special Education aide and FINALLY just about wrapping up my M.Ed. in Special Needs (well, the "taking classes" part, who knows when I'll be in a position to do the "teaching classes" part...) I live in MA with my husband AND SOON-TO-BE KITTY (I have been promised a kitty for my birthday, and I will name him Zuko and I will love him very much).
I love to write, but do far too little of it, and I love to read, but ditto the prior statement. I crochet and do some paper crafts; I like making silly cards and books for friends and siblings, and I like making cards and postcards, decoupage, and cooking. I recently lost 55 lbs. and have a few more to go, and (healthy) weight loss and working out are a signifigant part of my life. I'm also big into fandom, but try to keep it to a reasonable level (ask me for my Tumblr handle if you want the really crazy shit). Big fandoms are Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Community, Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, and a bunch of other things that will crop up here and there.
I mostly post about my daily life, will sometimes go off on a tangent (usually about academics, work, money, weight, etc.) I'd like to try to post more frequently, but that will come in fits and starts. My journal has a lot of Friend's Only entries, but is not, by any means, exclusively Friends Only.
I try to be a good commentor, but I don't comment ALL THE TIME unless I feel like I have something to say, and I ask nothing different from my friends (if you want to say something, say it! But don't feel obligated or pressured to comment constantly). It would also be cool to meet people from around my area, the chance to perhaps "bump into" one another (if the proper rapport is struck) is always cool.
