My name is Jen. I live in the northeastern part of Pennsylvania. In January 2000, I received my 2-year degree in legal studies. I am now back in school (again!) to pursue a degree to become a registered dietician. I have spent the past few years trying to decide upon the 'perfect' major... which would lead me to the 'perfect' career... in the 'perfect' location ... to meet the 'perfect guy', etc, etc. Anyone who has gone through this, should know exactly what I am talking about - you want to do everything, but can't decide on just one thing you want to do for the rest of your life. In the meantime, I'll just keep crossing my fingers and just hope that I am headed in the right direction! :)
Winter: My winter activities are limited to making snow-angels, drinking hot chocolate, and building snowmen with my niece, Monica. I can also be found shoveling my car out of Pennsylvania snowdrifts and counting the days until spring comes again! (A little trivia: I live about 30 minutes from the very town (Honesdale, PA) which inspired the song "Winter Wonderland")
Autumn: Stargazing. The autumn is absolutely my favorite time of the year for stargazing. Of course, a stargazer must go stargazing with several essential stargazing items: binoculars, Peppermint Patties (the official stargazing snack), a thermos of warm tea or cocoa, a blanket, my favorite stargazing manual, and a flashlight. *Stargazing tip: paint the flashlight with red nail polish. It reduces the glare when you are looking through your stargazing book! :)
Oh and make sure you take a peek at my favorite constellation: Bootes
Any season: Spending lots of time with my teenage daughter, Meghan, watching tv/movies, running, playing Sims 2 & 3, reading books (I am always reading 2 or 3 books at the same time, but I often forget to finish them!)
24/7: In the end, one of my favorite ways to spend time is to use my computer. Aside from web design, I also enjoy video editing, freelance writing, game modding, online game playing and blogging. You can take a peek at some of my creative online creations below.
Sound of Music, When Harry Met Sally, Emma, A Few Good Men, An
Officer and a Gentleman (great ending!), The Abyss,
Mean Girls, The 10th Kingdom, Meet the Parents, Serendipity (I love
John Cusack), Keeping the Faith, Quiz Show, An American President.
(Movies I am ashamed to admit I like:Grease 2, Speed 2)
Music: Groove Coverage, The Corrs, Sarah Mclachlan, Atomic Kitten, Within Temptation, Jewel.
Fiction Authors: John Grisham, Jane Austen, Michael Crichton, Kristin Britain, and Susan Elizabeth Philips.
Other books I read: History books (specifically books about the Revolutionary War), computer reference books, parenting books, make your life 'better and more interesting & meaningful' books, nutrition books, and biographies. I also have an entire bookcase dedicated to reference books, trivia books, dictionaries and encyclopedias of nearly every kind (Dictionary of Clichés, Dictionary of Names, Rhyming dictionary, Encyclopedia of Costume, Encyclopedia of Latin Terms, etc, etc).
