My name is Jess. I'm 33 years old and I live in Beaverton, OR. I'm a retail sales associate at Home Depot. I never went to college, but I'm interested in psychology, philosophy, and sociology. Quite the trifecta of soft science, I know. I love My Little Pony, which I'm entitled to, because I'm actually a girl and I grew up with it. I used to pull the tails out of my My Little Ponies, but still.
I'm a huge fan of science fiction in general and dystopian fiction and military sci-fi in particular. I like anime, even though I haven't really watched much of it recently, but this is mostly due to the fact that I am without television and wi-fi for the moment. I just moved to Oregon from Arizona four months ago with my girlfriend of eleven years, our roommate, and her two boxers, and we took only what we could fit in our 1987 Chevy van. We made two trips, but still, between three people and two dogs the first time around, it wasn't like we could fit much.
I love music. The Cranberries, Ace of Base, Florence + The Machine, Robyn, Queen, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers are among my favorite bands/musicians and I love melodic dubstep/chillstep.
I post mostly about my daily life, the random thoughts I have, the books I read, and just about anything else that interests me. Very little (if any) of my journal will be friend-locked, but I'm not too picky about who I add as a friend. In fact, if you think I seem interesting, just add me. You don't even need to ask.
