let's be friends

let’s be friends: Jessie

I’m really excited to bring back the let’s be friends series!  (For past friends’ posts see here.)

I’m Jessie, from Green Bay, Wisconsin. I’m 30, with two kids (son is 9 and daughter is 10).

I’m a vegetarian who has minor lapses that seem to come with stress! I love music, I’ve been to over 200 concerts. I drove 38 hours round-trip once to Canada to see my favorite band (Pearl Jam) and currently am waiting for my new personalized “PRLJAMR” license plates to come in the mail. hehe I’ve been writing a book loosely based on my life for the past 10 years and hope to finish it some year!

I do have my own blog, although if you read it you have to promise not to think I’m nuts. It’s more like a personal journal than a social media outlet, if you know what I mean. So if you ever want reassurance that your life is pretty normal, here it is: http://functionalyetdysfunctional.blogspot.com/

I really like to read, travel, cook……and being near water is one of my most favorite things in the world. My dream destination is Egypt….just a tad dangerous to travel to right now, though!

I also suffer from chemical depression which kicks in now and then….but I choose to try and find natural ways to deal with stress (such as walking/running/yoga/meditation) and it works out pretty well. Still have an off day now and then, but I think it’s something I’ve worked hard at. The most I’ve run is a 10K and hope to run a half marathon someday!

Head over to Jessie’s blog to say hi and encourage her in her book-writing (I think that’s so cool!).

In honor of Jessie, what’s the best concert you’ve been to?  I haven’t been to very many, but I really liked Coldplay – and I’m not even that big on their music!

  1. Thanks for the shout-out today! I went to a Coldplay show myself a few years ago, it was really good…..they definitely put on a great concert!

  2. Ooooh, fun question. Coachella was fun, most memorably The Black Keys. My favorite solo concert was Wilco. But I’ve seen some really great acts. Totally surprising was Marilyn Manson, he’s pretty vile but the show was awesome!
