A Subsequent Note

Friday, June 17, 2016
Hello World!

     It is time for me to write another post as I'm getting ready to head to bed, despite it being a quarter after four in the morning. #InsomniacProblems Nevertheless, I think that I might understand how or why I have insomnia - I believe that in a past life I lived somewhere that was extremely hot during the day, and sleeping at that point was the best way to survive. I could also be delusional from lack of sleep, or from being tired...I don't know.

     Anyhow, I finished two books tonight - Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham and A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn. I read the second in a few hours, as I honestly adore fairy tales and it was a retelling of Sleeping Beauty - one of my favorites, if not my favorite. The Lena Dunham book took me a few days to read as I simply could not become interested in it. It's not because it wasn't well-written, I just had trouble relating to Lena in any way. Plus it may have been because I mainly checked it out as I was currently reading novels written by comedians - Mindy Kaling and Chelsea Handler, both of whose books that I absolutely adored.

     Right now, I'm in the process of reading another book by Alex Flinn. I also have several of his books to pick up at the library, but I want to get a few more of the books that I currently have checked out finished before I get some more. What are some of the books that you're currently reading?

    There isn't much more going on in my life right now. I'm just trying to stay cool during the day, though it seems it is going to be a lot cooler today than it was yesterday. 😅 I'm going to go to bed, and I hope that you have a wonderful day!



The Beginning

Hello World!

     This is the first official entry in my new daily, semiprivate blog. I decided to start this as I'm wanting to get to know Blogger a bit better and I've recently acquired two templates that I absolutely adore. I'm in the process of getting the sidebar and everything set up, so please be patient with me if there are any broken links (which there are probably several), etc.

     As a result of this being the first official entry, I suppose that I should tell you a little bit about myself especially since I don't know how you came across this blog. Be sure to tell me in the comments below. :) To start, my name is Jessica - I was named by my maternal grandmother since my Mom didn't have any girl names picked out. Though in her defense, I did arrive a whole month early. I have the distinction of being the first baby delivered by the fire department in my hometown, with the result of my birth making the front page of the local newspaper before I could read or speak. The rest of my childhood was rather average - the parts that weren't will probably be discussed on my main site, Love Design Couture.

    LDC is where I discuss practically everything that I think of - problems with social media, favorite Vines, items that I'd love to own. It ranges from being very silly at times to completely serious. Of course, to get to know me even better, you also have to read my writings which can be found at Scribbled by Jessica.

     I honestly don't know what else to put in this post, beyond the fact that I'm currently in mourning. My new kitten has died, which means that my dog Colby is receiving lots of cuddles and attention. Am I the only one who has a tendency to become clingy when they lose something or someone?

     Before I head to bed - I'm a serious insomniac, can any of you suggest some tutorials on how to get all of this to look good? I'm open to suggestions, and I'll try to get another post up tomorrow before bed.
