Great question!

Hi! How are you doing?? I am doing awesome!!

I’ve been blogging for almost three years now and a lot of my friends still are shocked when I tell them I have a blog. I started blogging in 2014 as a way to keep my close friends and family posted on what was going on in my life. Slowly, it shift and evolved to something that I am still trying to figure out.

Believe it or not, I do get asked why I don’t blog more. I wish the answer was more exotic than it is, but truth be told I’m human too. I have dishes, laundry, a 9-5 job, and social life! Don’t get me wrong, I want to share EVERYTHING I do in life, but I’m only one person! As much as I say I’m a robot, I’m really not and I do require sleep sometime.

So what do I do outside of creating stuff and blogging? Another great question!
I’m a very eclectic individual!

Trivia!

I’ve been part of Cleveland Awesome Trivia for a little over nine months now. At my height, I was going three times a week. However, with the holiday here, I usually go on Tuesday’s and Sunday’s. I’m not going to reveal my current team name (because it’s sad and embarrassing and motivated by heartbreak) but tomorrow will be my second championship I have qualified for and am super excited!! I have been studying during all the free time I have!

Pinball!

I play in two pinball leagues. Belles and Chimes is my lady pinball league of Cleveland, which just had our season two tournament last week (I didn’t win, but I made the sashes!). My co-ed league meets at Stonehedge in Akron on Monday’s. Season five ends in a few weeks (we’ll see how I do!). In between, I also help organize Sirens of Stonehedge, the ladies tournament in Akron. Our next tournament should be in January. In summation (sounding smart), I play pinball at least once or twice a week!

Music!

Occasionally, there is a concert I like to attend. Last month there happen to be two back to back. Yes. I saw Good Charlotte (don’t judge!) But my favorite was Set Your Goals. Perks of being an adult? I have an income! I splurged and bought VIP tickets (#SYGVIP #All3OfYa) and I had a blast! Light up swords? Silly string circle pit? Mutiny? Best party of 2016! #10YearsOfMutiny

So! This is my life! I’m a social butterfly! Why don’t I blog more? Because when I get home my head hits the pillow and I fall asleep (or I watch Gilmore Girls).

#HereWeGo (I’m a Steelers fan too! Season ticket holders since 1986)

I want to be more present!! I’m still trying to find that balance? If that makes sense. 2016 was wonderful! I really made it MY year. Who wants to welcome 2017 with me? It’s going to be PHENOMENAL! GOLD BIRTHDAY!!! HURRAY!

Talk Soon,
Jennifer
