    So Far...

    So far into this year, I'm not too disappointed in myself. I am proud of the fact that I've been working out for almost 3 weeks straight, 4 days out of the week, which is awesomeness and I can totally feel it having its effect. On top of the fact, that I'm not as sensitive as I...

    The X Factor

    Last night, I applied to go on the X Factor. I'm really nervous and really excited. Might not even get an audition yet though. It's so unlike me because usually, I would never do anything like this. Not a lot of people have heard me sing and those who have, haven't heard how...

    What I Learned In 2008

    I am not one for new year's resolutions. I never bother making them because I know I'll never keep them. But this is more like a state of mind. Shine so very conveniently rhymes with 2009, and shine I will. I will not let the crap that has happened this...

    Gonna Be My Year

    2009 is the year of Jessie 2.0. The new and improved me. The one who is closer to God, family and friends. The one who does not sweat the small stuff. The one who is able to tame her tounge and listen more than she speaks. It's gonna be a great year!

    For me, 2007-08 was full of depression, loneliness and despair...And as dramatic as that sounds, it's rather true. This school year I'm taking a full course load (after dropping some last year thanks to medication changes and an inability to concentrate) and I'm determined to...
