Now that I have done the appropriate amount of over-thinking the creation of this blog, here’s a little glimpse into my stream of consciousness: What will people think? Who cares what they think, it’s my blog, right? Will they think I’m narcissistic? I want to be a great writer and all of the great writers are brave – am I brave enough? If I am brave, I do not care what others think, right? Should I write under a different name? What if I offend someone? Oy vey, and for the love of all that is holy, just get on with it!
So – here we are.
Jen C. is my real name.
I feel as though I have lived a couple of lifetimes up to this point. At the tender age of 17, I ran off with a boy, got pregnant, barely finished high school, got married, had a baby and divorced less than two years later… I was a good kid, no really, but we’ll get to that later.
The point of sharing with the world yet another blog among millions? Typically I would feel compelled to explain my point thoroughly, but the newer, older and wiser me says read, enjoy and don’t be too serious.
I’ll be writing about experiences that fall under the “that’s really funny now” category (i.e., now that I’ve lived through them), and other random stuff…the brave me really wanted to say shit – I’ll be writing about random shit. Hmmm. Ellen doesn’t swear and she’s hilarious…fucking hilarious. Okay – so maybe I’ll go easy on the swearing.
What I can tell you with certainty is that truth really is stranger than fiction!
