Welcome to my Blog!

Why hello whoever you are!
I thought I would start off by introducing myself... Seemed only fitting. :)
I'm Jess!

I am a student: 
*First and foremost, I am a student of Jesus. He is the Lord of my life, Lover of my heart, and my Master and King. I love waking up every single day, knowing that I am loved by my Creator and learning new things about Him and His heart for us. He's so great!
*Secondly, I am student of life and experiences. I love to travel and learn about different cultures and people... and learn from mistakes. Hopefully, I learn them quickly and don't make multiple mistakes over and over again... But I am a work in progress. Thankful for the Lord's grace and patience with me!
*Thirdly, I am a student of miserable (and sometimes wonderful) textbooks. I am currently at PSU. Hoping to be a nurse someday. I just finished all my nursing prerequisites.Honestly, if nursing school wasn't SO competitive, I would totally nerd it up and just go to school forever if I could! Well, you know what I mean. I would just have so much fun learning, but just the idea of competing among thousands to get a spot, makes it so stressful. 

A few random quirks:

*I am an affection lover? I am convinced that touch is one of my love languages. Sometimes I just feel the need to hug people or hold their hand... even if I met them within minutes. Don't worry... I realize how strange this is.
 *I am a hand liker? Love to talk with my hands. I notice people's hands.
*I am a closet nerd.I LOVE to read and learn new things. I find school so fun! Minus the moments of stress!
*I am introverted. I promise this is true! People don't believe me until I explain since it seems so unlikely. I am an uninhibited introvert. I draw a lot of my energy from being alone. I value and need my alone time, but at the same time I don't have a "social handicap" or a hard time hanging out and being with people.
*I am a sock LOVER. Don't even get me started. I love socks so much in fact, that I must wear them to sleep. Even in the summer.
*I am not the best at drinking. Whatever that means. I don't like the taste of wine at all, but part of me wants to make myself "acquire the taste" just cuz wine is so classy. haha :o) I am starting to think that even one drink triggers migraines for me. Or maybe it's a conincidence? Anyone know??
*I am a fashionista? One of my friends calls me a fashionista. I just thought that was so hilarious. I wasn't completely sure what that meant, but apparantly google search told me that a fashionista is "not to be confused with someone who is an obsessive trend follower. A real fashionista is someone that is dedicated to unique or high fashion clothing." Hey, I can dig that (Thanks Bryan)!
*I am an ex-barista. I just quit working at Starbucks (after 3 years there). It's a completely different experience being on the OTHER side of the counter after working there... and I realized, I hate it. Part of me wants to jump back there and help or something... or maybe I just feel out of place being a customer after I know everything that goes on there. So now, I am a coffee convert. No more Starbucks, if I can help it. I am going to local shops, and realizing... hmm there is actually better coffee out there! Thank goodness I got out of my bubble before it was too late! 
Speaking of too late, it's almost 2am. I should go back to writing my final paper!

P.S. Not sure if anyone will ever read this, but if you are reading this feel free to say hello on here, so I can find your blog! :)

Hope you all have a beautiful, wonderful weekend! ♥
