So, I know I’ve been MIA for awhile…


Wow. A lot has happened since my last post on Jess Is A Mess. I’m sure the majority of you are aware of the craziness that has evolved since we began the year 2020. I don’t know about you, but my life has changed dramatically, and in a number of ways.

I’ve been busy, let me tell you. Let’s see, I lost my mind which caused a temporary break with reality, started renting a room, and took some time to really find myself. I had lost my way. It was hard to admit that to myself, but I had.

In the middle of all of this chaos, a pandemic decides to show up. Next thing you know we’re all on lock down and I’m an “essential employee“. From there I go to night shift (0 stars, do not recommend), and almost overnight, cities suddenly start burning across America.

Needless to say, it’s been rough.

On the bright side, I am back on day shift. Things haven’t really calmed down too much, but a little less chaotic than they were. So, now that I actually have a little time, I decided I was ready to start blogging again. Only this time, I’m ready to take my blog into a new direction.

Why, you ask?

Well, I’m not the same person I was when I started this blog over two years ago. I’m not the same person I was a year ago, and I’m also not the same person I was just six months ago.

I have been learning, growing and evolving. In ways I never imagined I would. Ways I never imagined I even could. Trust me, there’s still plenty of room to grow, but I have come such a long way from the person I was before.



I have learned A LOT.


There is still so much for me to learn, and I want to share with all of you what I’ve already learned so far. I’m really looking forward to sharing not only what I’ve learned, but how it’s helped me to grow as a person. I’m doing things I never thought I’d be able to do before. Things I never imagined I’d do before!

It’s been emotional, scary and intimidating, but it’s also been enlightening and eye opening.

I hope you’ll stay and follow along, my goal is to help others through my own trials and errors as we travel through this adventure we call life!
