[ about moi ]

Hi there, I'm J.! I'm the brains (and I use that terminology quite loosely) behind the operation here at kissing frogs. I've always loved to write. When I was younger I would write and illustrate little stories, set up a table (I called it my "shop") and then sell said stories to my parents. So not only have I always been a budding author, but I learned at a very young age how to swindle my parents out of their hard-earned money.

I started this blog in February 2009 because, in the words of a very good friend of mine, "I mean, ridiculous things happen to you, so a blog would make sense." So blog I will, damnit. A little about me - I wear glasses, I like to run, I usually don't understand the concept of "an inside voice", and I'm weirdly obsessed with crappy reality television. I'm 30 years old and I went to school for political science with the intentions of going to law school. That didn't happen because, well.. I was rejected from about seven different schools. Stick with me as I try to bring this blog to life, I hope to one day make it worth your while.

If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I'm one of those bizarre people who actually wants to hear constructive criticism. Although if it's in regards to the html on my blog, I'm warning you, there's really not much more that I can do at this point. My skills are basic at best, as I essentially blocked out everything I managed to learn in my Intro to Computer Science class back in college. This could have to do with the fact that I was told by a fellow classmate that my professor "ate babies for breakfast". One day in class she told us that we should all be thankful that we'd never have to live under a communist regime. So needless to say, that wasn't one of my favorite classes and that website design isn't really my thang.
