“Waaazzzuuuuuuuuuup!”

Yes…I still [unashamedly] say that! Deal with it 🙂

[ahem]

My Writing

I’ve always been a storyteller. When I was a child, I would write scripts for silly little plays I wanted my family to act out. They never obliged me, but I didn’t stop writing. I could make up a story about anything at the drop of a hat. In middle school, I wrote a story called “Red Riding Hood:  The Untold Story.” It was hilarious. It was written from the perspective of the wolf, and–of course–he was framed. Apparently, it was all grandma’s doing. Who knew? I liked doing things like that. I still do, but, of course, adult life has a way of making us forget the things we used to love to do. I think that’s why I fell in love with writing SimLit. It reminded me of the things I used to write about–but more grown up, of course.

Blogging

During the period when I forgot about my love for creative writing, I developed an appetite for a different kind of writing:  blogging. Those “forgotten years” occurred during and after college. I learned a lot about myself and how I view the world during that time. Those were the years I had begun to come out of my parents’ mold and into my own space. I had formed opinions on matters that never concerned me before, and I felt the need to share them with others. Blogging became that platform. I was shy and didn’t speak much, but I was very pensive. I was always exploring different ideas in my mind, and the only way I knew to get those thoughts out was to write them down. I kept a journal since I was 12 years old. Writing my thoughts and feelings was highly therapeutic because I couldn’t share them with anyone. I decided to begin blogging when I discovered I would be an author one day. That’s a story for a different day. I had no idea when that would take place, but I knew I needed to get used to people reading my writing. It had always been private. No one even knew I did it, and that had to change. The only way I figured I could get over the fear of people being in my private space was to let people in my private space. That is when I began blogging.

I don’t have a particular style of blogging. My style is random–just like my thoughts. I may write about some obscure childhood memory or an extremely random, ironic idea. I may even write about spiritual things as my relationship with God is a big part of my life. Whatever I end up writing, you can expect it to be honest, true and from a heartfelt, sincere place. I hope you enjoy.

Myself

I don’t know what the general consensus is when it comes down to how much people enjoy being themselves, but I love being me. Sure, I annoy myself a lot, but I get a kick out of myself. Between the random thoughts, the sarcasm, and the awesome, fake disease I call Musical Tourette’s, I think I’m a lot of fun.

Who is Jes2G?

Jes2G is a screen name I have used since high school. I like my name, Jessica, but it kinda sucks to have such a common name; my last name is pretty common too. Any screen name I came up with was already taken because there are about 3 billion Jessicas in the world. Look it up; I dare you. I was in the class of 2000, and everyone knows that we rock. I wanted to be associated with that awesomeness for the rest of my life. However, 2k was already overdone with the Y2k fiasco, so I chose the Roman numeral G instead. At the time, I thought taking an s off Jess looked cool. So, there you have it, folks! That’s how Jes2G came to be! The mind of a 16-year-old…it’s a beautiful thing. It may have been super silly–and supercilious–at the time, but at least I found a way to guarantee I would always have my preferred screen name. Jes is made up, so whether I use Jes2G or Jes2000, they’re always available. Cool, huh? I don’t actually go by Jes or Jes2G on this side of the screen, but I do have an old friend who actually calls me Jes2G. I think it’s cute.

More about me

My favorite color is orange.

I love Asian food, pancakes, pasta…carbs!

I like the idea of traveling because I don’t get out as much as I’d like. There are plenty of places I would love to visit in the United States, but I would really love to go to Spain and Italy.

I’m a bit of a control freak, which is probably why I love simulation games like The Sims and Civilization.

I am a perfectionist as well, so I will probably revise this page 15 times before it’s ever “right.”

I could list all the quirky tidbits that make me who I am, but that would be cheating. I hope to give you many opportunities to discover more about myself through my writing. So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this initial about me moment, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

  • It’s always a pleasure to learn more about you, and may I say, this page looks beautiful?! Great job. I really like the theme you selected for your blog as well. I know these things are always subject to change, but it looks fantastic and I know any changes down the road would only be even better 🙂

      • I came to visit your lovely site again and saw your new design! I really like it. I hope this is an okay place to give feedback like that 😉 I’ve seen a few layouts on your site, but I think this one is a winner!! Really lovely!

        • Thank you! I’ve been meaning to invite you back, but I keep getting side tracked. I think this is it too! I’m happy with it. I think, if I ever have announcements or something, I’ll use the sliders on the front. What do you think?

    • Awwww! How nice! Thanks for the awesome stories that evoke the awesome comments! 😀 I’ve still got your The Maker series in my inbox to read 🙂 I haven’t forgotten about it. Just been busy.

  • Hello! 🙂
    I feel like I haven’t talked to you in a while (probably because I haven’t been around in the blogging world for a month or so). How have you been? Looking forward to Christmas? I’m looking forward to some time off (more writing time!) but I have a feeling that other things will probably find a way to fill that time (Christmas parties, shopping…all that stuff).
    Oh, and I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! https://invisibleworldd.wordpress.com/2015/12/03/versatile-blogger-award/

    • Hiiii! 🙂
      I’ve been good, thank you! How was NaNoWriMo? I think I’d like to do that next year…if I’m not busy with something else that is. I am ALWAYS looking forward to Christmas LOL. Probably mostly for the time off. I always take the week of Christmas and the week after off. And, because my parents will be going out of town, that means I’ll have more time to myself 🙂 I’ll see them briefly before they leave Christmas Eve and morning though. Thanks for the nomination! I’ll go check your post out to see what this one is all about lol.

      • You should! It is challenging, but the feeling you get at the end is amazing! You’ll feel so accomplished. Being a part of NaNo pushed me to write more than I ever had, so I learned a lot and got a lot done. 🙂
        Yay for Christmas and time off (and time to our selves for us introverts)! lol.

  • Ok, so don’t ban me from your blog. You’re probably getting tired of me tagging you in stuff, but I have a confession to make…I did it again. :0
    I tagged you in my “getting to know you” challenge. Even though I know you pretty well, I just couldn’t leave you out of this one. You’ve been such a great friend and I’m really looking forward to your answers! Here’s the link if you want to check it out https://invisibleworldd.wordpress.com/2016/01/04/challenge-who-are-you/
    So, you won’t ban me right? 🙂

  • Hello~ I’ve had your blog on my to-read list for a while after seeing some of your comments pop up on other stories I’ve been catching up with. I also have a super common name so I could relate to your username creation, though yours had a lot more thought put into it than mine, haha.
    Your site is incredibly organized; just scrolling through it is pleasing~ I’m not too sure where to start so if you have a recommendation on what to read first, I’m all ears. If not, I shall wing it, so just a fair warning since I’ll probably bombard you with notifications. It was cool getting to learn more about you!

    • Why hello there! Welcome to my craziness lol. I’m honored that you would stop by and check me out!

      I tend to put way too much thought into EVERYTHING lol. At least 17 y/o me got one thing right lol.

      Oh boy, where to begin? That’s a tough one! I suppose it depends on what you’re in the mood for! I’ve got a little bit of everything lol. I’m currently writing 3 stories.

      If you want something a bit more serious, dramatic, and are a fan of character development, you’ll love Discovering Juliana. It’s almost finished!

      If you want some comic relief don’t mind keeping up with several families, you may like my neighborhood rotation, Keeping Up With the Joneses.

      My third story is sort of an alternate ending to my legacy. It was supposed to be the story to go along with my restaurant challenge, but I can’t resist getting tangled up in stories and adding plot points here and there, so this story has the best of everything!

      If you’re a glutton for punishment and want to go on an epic journey, check out my legacy. It’s one of the longest ones I know of lol.

      If you want a shorter story that has been completed, F.I.S.H. is your story. It has some good ol fashion family conflict but for good reasons.

      There are tons other stories, but I’ve probably already overwhelmed you lol. Enjoy whatever you choose to read. I look forward to your comments! I love hearing from you guys. 😀

      • Oh wow, your ability to work on multiple things is admirable – I barely struggle with one
        That is quite the selection; I can read anything, but I have to confess Discovering Juliana has caught my eye so I’ll probably start there and work my way around.

        • Cool! I’m glad you chose that one. 😀 Gosh, my writing seems to have gone on a journey with Juliana lol. I was a different writer then, but then again, we all evolve over time, right?

          Juggling multiple stories has been a struggle at times as a few stories were put on hold, but yeah…I’m crazy lol. I’m looking forward to being able to focus on just one thing!

Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts!
