10 things

  1. Figuring out a number one fact about me is too much pressure, even though this will not necessarily have an order of importance, so I’m going to skip to #2.
  2. Cute coffee shops are my weakness; I have an ongoing list of all the different shops I’ve been to, and I’m currently sitting at 23, as of June 14, 2017.
  3. I take my Instagram very seriously. I’ve been posting every single day since 2014. (I started in 2012 on Facebook, but that died, so I switched to IG.) My daily picture & its caption are almost constantly on my mind, and I try to keep an aesthetically pleasing theme to my best ability. (follow me! @janalyssa365)
  4. I get stressed out really easily, yet I love filling my planner with things to do until I can’t fit anything else in the daily boxes.
  5. love concerts. Pop punk is my main genre, but I can vibe to pretty much anything. I try to go to at least one show/event a month, and it honestly keeps me sane.
  6. I got my Associate’s in Arts degree from Harper College in IL, and I transferred to Purdue University in IN, majoring in Professional Writing.
  7. I know what depression/self-harm feel like, and my mind is constantly a disaster. However, I’m slowly but surely learning how to deal with it a lot better than before and realizing how to learn from it rather than dwell in it.
  8. I’m a Cubs fan, yet I hate Chicago. (besides for the concerts & cute coffee shops)
  9. I am in a long-term relationship, and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been with a guy.  He’s taught me so much about love & life, and he probably doesn’t even realize it. I’m forever grateful for everything he does for me every single day, and I can’t wait to be with him for the rest of my days. (I could go on & on about him, but that will turn into a whole other blog post.)
  10. The ultimate goal is to be an editor of a magazine while living in California with my boyfriend and two English bulldogs named Jumbaa & Russell.
