5 Years

April 29, 2014


Today marks the five year anniversary of my very first post on BecomingJennie. It’s hard to believe that five years have passed. It seems it’s just as difficult to know where to end as it was to know how to begin. I suppose, like anything, I simply should start at the beginning.   April 6th, […]

Missing and Action:

November 27, 2012


Yes. I know. It has been quite some time since the last post. I have not fallen off the face of the earth, which I’ve heard is a physical impossibility, unless of course, I am circling in earth’s orbit, which means, of course, that I have — in fact — catapulted myself off of the […]

Dog Shit in the Kitchen

October 16, 2012


Sometimes I am selfish and go to sleep without letting Saucy out for a final pee or poo. Last night’s selfishness manifest itself into a giant dog shit in the kitchen, which inevitably leads back to me, to my failure to let her out and my selfishness in choosing to go to bed over choosing […]

Sick Girl

September 17, 2012


Sick sick sick. Ugh. So sick that I couldn’t muster the strength to write the Friday post, which induced shame for not fulfilling my commitments. Which incited guilt about “taking it easy” and “not pushing too hard,” which inspired exhaustion and led me to sleeping on the couch all day. Being a human is very […]

The Last Days

April 30, 2012


We move this week. FINALLY. Slow down Jennie, just slow down. We’ve been wanting to move for quite some time, and tomorrow is the official day we can enter our new home and call it ours. We’ve had the keys for a few days now, and dropped off a few things, but nothing so big […]

The Funny Thing About Healing is…

April 26, 2012


The funny thing about healing is that you never quite know when you are done. And I guess, you could say, you never know the precise moment when the whole healing process begins. I’ve been on this kind of insane emotional roller coaster for the past few weeks and I’ve had a difficult time pinning […]

Statistics of Self-Caring

March 28, 2012


I had myself a little mental breakdown last week, over pounds and milk and cows and the probability a Jersey cow will produce more than an Ayrshire cow. The breakdown wasn’t just for me though, because Mr. Man also had the pleasure of partaking in this completely statistically predictable meltdown. How often I forget that […]

Someone Must Change

September 14, 2011


“When the wind blows, the grass bends.” -Confucius On January 5th, and 7th, I wrote blog posts about my neighbor, a seemingly crazy woman who slams doors in response to our movement about the house. Responses from my dear readers, insisting that I discontinue my door slamming experiment, coupled with the request of Mr. Man, […]

UCLA Admission Decision

April 25, 2011


Dear Jennifer: After careful review of your application for admission, we regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you admission for the Fall Quarter 2011. UCLA continues to receive more applications for admission than we can accommodate. Given the high caliber of the applicant pool, admission decisions were difficult and involved hard […]

Biological, Physiological, Existential: Crisis

March 21, 2011


I am currently in the middle of the last class I need to be get into UCLA, if  they are to accept me – I find out some time in April. The final class that I’m taking is a Biology class, and even though I’d already finished my life science units at San Diego State […]

Emotional and Transitional Purgatory

May 3, 2010


I feel a bit of the “in betweens”…. Finally, the house is cleaned out. The apartment in Hollywood swept, bleached, Windexed and locked. This is actually the cleanest I’ve left a place upon moving. Which feels pretty good. I can’t help but feel… in between…. which is exactly what I am, and I suppose, a […]

Just a Day

June 16, 2009

Comments Off

Today was very interesting, and I’ve had a whole barrage of thoughts to contend with, even though the sun has yet to set. I’ve decided to write now, at 5pm (instead of my usual 10pm entry) because I’m hitting the gym in a bit to run off some steam, and then it’s off to meet […]

I Am

June 12, 2009


So a couple days ago, I set up the blog to automatically post all entries as good days. I felt as if it was a bad day, I would feel so inclined to check the little box, and that whatever the cause behind the bad day would be enough to keep the momentum, and I […]

And on the seventh day…..She rest.

May 31, 2009


Hardly. Rest is something that didn’t come my way today. And I can’t figure out if I’ve intentionally filled my day with activities or if that is the way life dealt my hand today, this gray turned sunny Sunday, the final day of rest in May 2009. The morning started fairly early, around 8am, when […]


May 29, 2009


After the mini meltdown yesterday, I decided it might be a good time for a little San Diego retreat, a getaway, but not in my typical runaway fashion. This time I told people I’m leaving, told Jill, Duncan, my sponsor, told everyone that would wonder where I went if I happened to disappear, which is […]
