I’ve been feeling like a bit of a fraud for keeping that profile photo up of myself with long hair…..it’s not who I am anymore. I’ll replace it soon. My friend Tara cut my hair today and bleached the top….fun, right? I’m off to San Francisco tomorrow….if any of you live in the area come and say hi!

This video was made shortly after Jen was diagnosed with ovarian cancer one year ago:
This quote from my journal jumped off the page tonight. It always reminds me that it’s okay to be an outsider. Being on the inside isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I have no idea where that came from but maybe someone needs to hear it tonight…..
