I have a new idea. Once a week I am going to write a note, and then post it here. Some times I feel like my typing is just boring, and so to spice things up I’m throwing in some hand writing. Think of it as a letter to you, but I didn’t need to find my stamps. If you ever feel inspired enough to respond with a hand written note, I will be happy to link to it! So, for your reading pleasure:Of course, I do want to make this accessible, so if you use a text reader, or are on a smaller screened computer, click through for the text version. This is also to clarify any words that may be difficult to read.Hello!
My name is Jessica and I am 22 years old. I think you can tell a lot about a person by their hand writing – so I wanted to write a little note to all those who waste time reading my blog, and share a bit more about myself.
I have been blogging since 2003, but it was only three years ago that I started One Shiny Star. I felt like there were so many good bloggers out ehre, but I am different, and unique, the problem w/ a name like Jessica is, well… it is not unique. So I wanted my blog to reflect tat, among a million stars – I am the shiny one. Comments completely make my day, and once my summer classes are done, I promise to be better at returning the love. I promise!
Since B-Man is out of town I’ve been blaring the *country* music. I grew up listening to country, so it takes me back. I’m definitely a big fan of old school Billy Ray Cyrus and Tim McGraw, but I also love Josh Turner.
A little more about me? I plat the piano, and I started in second grade. I also played the flute in high school. I started singing at 10 years old, and since that point I was ranked number 3 out of 50 Altos and number 11 our of 50 sopranos at All-Europe honors choir in 2006. I also performed at Carnegie Hall in 2007. I took many years of voice lessons, but they don’t fit in my schedule anymore. It makes me feel like I’ve given up something I really love, but I know that I can go back to it. I can’t wait to sing to my future children.
Thanks for reading, and don’t judge my handwriting too much! Have a wonder-filled Thursday!
Always & Forever,
Jessica @ One Shiny Star
