Jen In Fort Worth

Hey everyone!
So, after 34 years of being labeled "stupid", "lazy", "scatterbrained", "smart, but not applying herself...", I've been diagnosed with ADHD.

It is an incredible relief to have so many things make sense. Like... this marathon that I've been running all of these years is ACTUALLY going somewhere.

So... other things about me...

I'm a mom to a 9 year old. I'm a partner of 12 years. Both of them are very supportive and understanding.
I'm a full-time college student, and I work full-time at Starbucks... for now. I'm a photographer, and I'm getting my Fine Arts degree.

My ultimate bucket-listy type dream is to storm chase. I'm going to take spotter classes next spring. Yay!

I don't know what else to write. I had ideas on what to say... but... squirrel.

It's great to be here!
