5 Years

April 29, 2014

26

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

80

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 […]

Sick Girl

September 17, 2012

34

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 […]

Fear and Finances: Change vs. Shifts

September 7, 2012

70

I’m currently in the middle of a new 4th step and am once again bewildered by the fears that have come up. The first time around, I wrote them out and many of them were so irrational that I had to let them go. Of course, many of those irrational fears still loom above my […]

Lighting up the Sky

August 31, 2012

71

“Even After All this time The Sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me.” Look what happens With a love like that, It lights the whole sky.” A quote by the Sufi poet, Hafiz, from a friend (many thanks for this day opener). The day began with a friend and a text message. Yesterday […]

The End of the Beginning

May 25, 2012

55

What a wild two weeks. Absolutely wild. With the release of my book cover coming at the beginning of finals week, and then this past week being the very first of summer vacation, my head has been in a bit of a whirlwind with everything that’s going on. Perhaps I should start at the beginning? […]

The Last Days

April 30, 2012

27

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

27

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 […]

SurvivingRape.Org… She’s alive

April 21, 2012

17

My original intent was to wait until I had a more well rounded website so that when viewers came, it was adequate in it’s resources and comments, etc. However, taking into account the inherently communal nature I wish to foster within the site, I think it’s best that I release it to the world now. […]

Statistics of Self-Caring

March 28, 2012

38

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 […]

Marty McFly and the Time Machine

April 4, 2011

34

So many times in life, I’ve wished I could go back and change something I said or did. I tell myself, like any good, trying to move forward type person, that “I will neither regret nor wish to change the past,” but truth be told, everyone has a day or eight they’d love to go […]

Biological, Physiological, Existential: Crisis

March 21, 2011

40

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 […]

Mid-term

July 14, 2010

71

Ahhhh the joys of classical literature, Achilles and Odysseus coming together, inspire Virgil to write the Aeneid, under the command of Augustus of course who needed a little history for Italy and Rome in general. Socrates and his inquiring method setting philosophical foundations for generations to follow, Plato setting up for Augustine and Augustine turning […]

Back into EMDR

February 16, 2010

29

It’s been a minute since I’ve been here, I know. I’ve finished my book proposal, to the point where I can polish it and hopefully go to town pitching to publishers. It feels good to make this sort of progress, feels good to put my mind to something and do it. I’ve also started using […]
