My First Time !!! + Questions

I went out to the farmer's market today in Calabasas with a few girls from my section.  I originally just planned on going out there with them for a breakfast burrito date + coffee date, but plans changed while I was there.  We were approached by a couple of young women asking if we would be willing to donate blood today.  It's something that I've always wanted to do so I figured today was as good a day as any other.  I'm so glad that I did it and it wasn't nearly as dreadful as one might think.  It was over pretty quickly and they provide you with a nice variety of snacks during.  I also received a voucher to go to Baskin Robbins and receive a free pint of ice cream (I got the Wild N' Reckless sherbet).  All in all, it was a good day.  The weather was beautiful and I actually feel like I did something positive today.  One thing that I have been wanting to work on is just being more open and "paying it forward" in small ways.  This was a lovely first step and my first time definitely will not be my last.

Also, I've received a couple questions on my Tumblr that I do want to answer ... but I'm not sure if doing that actually warrants its own post, so I'm just going to throw them into this post.  Hope no one minds !! I'm considering starting an ask.fm account, just because it might be easier than people finding me through my old Tumblr.  I haven't decided yet.

1. Why do you blog/ why did you start blogging?
I started blogging just as a hobby honestly.  I really love reading other people's blogs and it's something that I just enjoy and find relaxing.  It also serves as a sort of online journal/memory book.  I started this blog in particular right after I graduated from university and was applying for various law schools.  It's just nice for me to be able to go back and see how everything has progressed.  I really just blog for myself I guess.

2. Do you ever feel like people are judging you?
I'm not sure if this question pertains to my blogging in particular or in everyday life.  I feel like people judge, that's what they do.  I don't necessarily know or care to know what everyone is thinking about me 24/7.  I just live my life ... I try not to worry about things like that too often.

3. Why are you single?
I don't know how to answer this.  I just am.


  1. Good for you!!! i want to do this too but i hate needles. love that you're being so positive in 2014 and putting other first

  2. don't let your mother see this post, lol.
    that ice cream looks good though!

  3. I've never given blood - I'm way too terrified of needles. Good for you for going for it!

    1. It really wasn't as scary as it seems, but then again, I've never had a problem with needles LOL I'm kind of morbid in that way !

  4. LOL at your answer to "Why are you single!?" Why do people even bother asking this question!? So happy to see you out there giving blood :)
    Have a great weekend Jennifer!

    1. LOL i always get questions like these. I'm just like 'uhhh.. idk'

  5. Yay for paying it forward Jennifer! That's great! As for the "do you ever feel like people judge you" I really liked your answer. You really can't be too concerned with what others think of you. Truth of the matter is people are going to have an opinion of you whether you like it or not! Rock on Jennifer!

  6. That's so nice of you that you donated blood! Unfortunately, I'm not able to do it (I don't have the requirements... I don't have the minimun weight necessary!), however, I'm always motivating everyone around me to do it! Even though it may look scary there's always someone out there who's really in need of it, and this simple act of donating blood can save a life. So, yeah, you should really feel proud of yourself! :) I'm really happy you did it. Plus: you got that voucher for ice cream.. I mean, saving a life and still getting ice cream for that? It can't get much better right? hahah :)

    1. I agree. It's totally understandable if you're unable to donate for whatever reason or if you're just scared, but if you are able then I think it's a great thing. It was an awesome feeling to know that I was able to help someone out there and possibly save a life. I'll definitely do it again someday.



I love reading your comments and I always make an effort to respond to each and every one of them :)
