Haaaave You Met Jacqueline?

I’m trying (very, very hard) to put myself in better spirits. Instead of my “Grace Potter” Pandora station (which by the way, is amazing) today at work I listened to a more lively Trampled By Turtles Pandora station. It also didn’t hurt starting the day with donuts  (and Dairy Queen I later found out ) my boss brought in. A yummy donut and fresh coffee, what more could a girl ask for on a Monday!?

But now I’m here in bed and it’s 10:24 at night and I can’t sleep. I’m restless and anxious. I always feel so much better after I write. I’m like a writing bulimic. I binge on bad feelings all day and then purge them onto a computer screen after I’m done. Normally I have no problem spilling out what I’m feeling or thinking of a topic that I can relate to. For some reason, today is just not one of those days. So I had a conundrum, I need to write but don’t know what to write to make myself feel better…. Solution? A list!!

I love lists. I wish I could clearly delineate my life onto a piece of white ruled notebook paper. Since that seems a bit neurotic , I figured a smaller list with less of my neurosis visible would be a better option. So get your pens ready kids, it’s time to play “Haaaave you met Jacqueline?”

Prepare yourself, as the rest of this blog will consist of a completely self-indulgent quiz-type list of things about me.
