If you look up "spread too thin" in most dictionaries, my photograph will be there, staring you in the face. I've been accused on more than one occasion of trying to squeeze too many things into my life, and at one point I even established the nickname of "the Energizer Bunny".

As an undergraduate, I attended Columbus State University in Columbus, Georgia with a psychology major and a theatre minor. After taking a year off, I'm currently enrolled in Cal State Northridge's Marriage and Family Therapy program, through their department of Educational Psychology and Counseling. I feel like the program is putting me on the right track for private practice, which is my goal.

I own my own business, Cards by Jennie, in which I make custom, handmade invitations, announcements, and cards. I'm excited for the future, and intend to expand my advertising and watch my business blossom.

If you know anyone who might want wedding invitations, birth announcements, Bar Mitzvah invitations, etc, please feel free to direct them to my website!

On the weekends, I work for Daizy the Clown and Company as a birthday party/ picnic clown. I lead games, perform magic, face paint, and make balloon animals, and it's an *awesome* way to make a little extra money.

I also pick up a lot of odd jobs, such as tutoring (math and English), house-sitting, babysitting, transcription, and probably some other stuff I'm forgetting.

My two major interests... one might even say my two drugs of choice... are scrapbooking and musical theatre, not necessarily in that order. I love musicals because I find that they're intoxicating. As demonstrated in recent Broadway smash, "The Drowsy Chaperone", musicals can be just for fun, and that's ok... and I couldn't agree more. I love scrapbooking because it allows me to be creative even though I'm not particularly artistically inclined, plus it's a great way to store my memories (which is helpful, because I, myself, have a terrible memory).

Two years ago, I said I wasn't going to date until after graduation, but that contention was circumvented upon getting to know John - an amazing man and, as I enjoy saying, among the last of a dying breed: "good guys".

Having spent that time getting to know myself as an individual, I am now capable of being Jennie (the whole person) and being half of John-and-Jennie (the couple). It's the first time in my life that I don't feel stifled in my individuality because I'm dating someone. It's wonderful, and I highly recommend it for everyone. We've now been together just over a year, and are still very happy.

I'm currently living back in my parents' house where I grew up. Since leaving for college, I have moved about ten times, and so for the time being, it's good to be in the house where I grew up. My parents are very respectful of the fact that I'm a "grown-up", and I'm able to come and go as I please. The only disadvantage is that Lily, my darling long-haired tortie cat, can't live with me because my dad is allergic. She's currently residing with a foster family until I move out into the world and get my own place.

All in all, what can I say? I'm a pretty happy girl.
