Hi! My name is Jessica, but most everyone calls me Jess. I have lived in Grand Rapids, MI my entire life. I have always had the desire to write and have toyed with the idea of a blog for quite awhile. As my 28th birthday approached, I decided that a blog would be my gift to myself, and so here I am.
I have a few ideas of what I’d like to write about on this blog. I plan on highlighting my hometown as much as possible because I happen to think Grand Rapids is a pretty neat place. The only thing is, I’ve never really given it much time or thought outside of the daily grind. This blog aims to change that, as I’d like to use it as a means to get off my lazy butt and explore.
I also would be lying to you if I told you I wasn’t struggling with my weight. I’ve really let myself go the past several years, and would like to use this as a public way of holding myself accountable. This will be a log of my struggles, my successes, and everything else along the way.
As I get this blog started, those will probably be my main topics, but I’m going to use this as an opportunity to really explore my thoughts and actions and determine exactly where I’d like to go with my life. I hope you will follow along and share in my journey. I would love this blog to be a way to reach out to and interact with new people. Maybe we can carry each other along on this journey.
