I thought I might do a little survey convey a little more about myself to you guys. 🙂
Name: Jennifer (Jenni) Joslyn
Age: 20 something.
Food: Grilled cheese sandwiches, all fruits & veggies (can you believe it?!), & sushi sushi sushi.
Drink: coffee, tea, and smoothies. I love throwing a bunch of seemingly random fruits and vegetables together into the Vitamix and making something delicious!
Book: I have a lot of favorites… but I really enjoyThe Bible, The Art of War by Sun Tzu & of course, The Harry Potter series.
Song: Changes all the time. Right now I’ve been frequently listening to “Miracles” by Coldplay. I also really love “Aquaman” by Walk The Moon.
Band: I really enjoy Walk the Moon. I recently saw them in concert & they were incredible. Hillsong United is also great.
Solo Artist: Michael Jackson or Dolly Parton.
Place: Kauai, Hawaii. Or home – Southern California.
Sport: I like golfing, but I was a dancer of most of my life. (both an art and a sport, in my opinion!) I love watching football and soccer.
Male actor: Robert Carlyle, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hanks and Martin Freeman.
Female actor: Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Morrison, Lupita Nyong’o, Emma Watson, and Uzo Abuba.
Schooling: I am currently finishing up my Bachelor’s degree. Will be finished soon!
BF: My best friend is also my boyfriend! We have been together for almost 4 years.
Political ideology: I studied political science for a time, so the whole concept and psychology of how politics work in the mass population has always been more interesting to me than “choosing a side”. All in all, I have various and different views on some major topics and I do not align or identify myself as one faction or the other.
Religion: I am a Christian; I fully believe in God and that He sent His one and only son so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
Tattoos: I do not have any.
Piercings: I have four – two in each ear.
Languages: The only language I can fluently speak is English. However, I understand Spanish and I am trying to learn how to speak it. I wish I had learned to fluently speak another language when I was younger… however, it’s never too late!
Reason behind your blog’s name: One of my nicknames is ‘Jen’ and I wanted my blog to be a positive representation of the ‘next generation’. 🙂
Why you blog: I started blogging because i specifically wanted to be more transparent to my friends and family. I wanted to break out of my introverted shell and one of the best ways i knew how to express myself is through writing. Overtime, that expression began to coincide with the feelings and situations involving my peers and some began to express to me that they could relate. I love writing and I love people; this blog was a great way to reach out!
1. Are you named after anyone?
Jennifer is a modern variation of the name Guinevere. Queen Guinevere was the wife of the legendary King Arthur and the “girlfriend” of his brave knight, Sir Lancelot. Yikes… but hey, she’s a pillar of romantic Welsh legend!
Plus my middle name is Jacqueline, which is my mom’s first name. 🙂
2. When was the last time you cried?
Yesterday, while watching a young woman from Mexico win the final leg of a triathlon. On television. In a restaurant. (I cry tears of joy when someone else cries tears of joy, always.)
