Introduction to Jojo 101  
This post is for my new friends to get to know who I am and for my old friends who need a refresher course :)  I've decided to post this at the top of my journal so that everyone who comes to my journal will see it.

  • My name is Jody or Jojo(what my friends call me) and I'm a nerd.

  • I'm in my early 30's and I live in El Dorado, Kansas.  I've lived here for about 14 years.

  • I'm single because I'm weird and have really bad social anxiety when it comes to men.

  • I love animals and nature.  I live alone with my 2 cats....

Chloe (15 yrs)

  Baby (6 yrs)

and my baby girl, Luna Lou (3 yrs)

  • I've been a pseudo-vegetarian since I was 14.  I've gone completely vegan before but currently I eat mainly vegetarian with chicken and seafood occasionally.  I NEVER, under any circumstances, eat beef, pork, lamb, mutton, veal, or venison.

  • I'm very health conscious.  I used to run every day before I hurt my back.  The doctors told me I couldn't run anymore unless it was on an elliptical machine.  I can't afford a gym membership or an elliptical, so I just walk.  Needless to say, I'm not in the shape I was before my back injury.

  • I'm the youngest of 7 siblings.  I'm extremely close to my sister, Holly, whom is 6 years older than me and closest in age. She lives in El Dorado, too and is married to Shawn and they have two daughters, Chelsey (17), and Hallie (13) whom I talk about occasionally on my journal.  My other siblings live in Kansas, Texas, Tennessee, and Florida.  I also have around 18 nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews, who live all around the world, but Chelsey and Hallie are the two I'm closest to.  I love them as if they were my own girls.

  • I've recently completed my Bachelors of Science in Psychology degree.  FINALLY!  I was a Drama Major, then an Art History Major, then an English Liturature major, then an Opera major, before I finally gave up on the dream of making it in the Fine Arts world and settled on something that I found easy and would get me a job.

  • I'm currently working as a Program Support Worker for a  Reintegration/Adoption Foster Care Agency.  I really love the job but hope to someday get my Doctorate in Psychology so I can be a child therapist.

  • I'm a Dualist Pantheist but I'm open-minded to all religions.  I used to want to be a Buddhist but I have too much desire for Colin Morgan. I do collect Laughing Buddhas and rub their bellies for luck, though.  I also meditate on a daily basis to help with my social anxiety.

  • I'm into New Agey type stuff like astrology, palmistry, tarot cards, astral travel, Quantum Jumping, ESP...etc.  I'm a Capricorn and so is Colin Morgan.  According to our Astrological Birth Charts, we are soulmates lol j/k....or am I?

  • I post about my dreams all the time.  I have really weird, vivid dreams that sometimes come true.  I've also seen ghosts and talked to dead people.  I swear I'm not crazy....most of the time.

  • I LOVE to draw.  Unfortunately it comes in phases.  I haven't had the urge to draw recently but when I do get the urge it usually comes in the form of my muse, Colin Morgan:

  • I work an 8-5 M-F job but on the weekends I like to I spend my time going to the lake, taking Luna to the park, or cleaning.   I spend my evenings binge-watching TV shows on Netflix.  My favorites are:  Merlin, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Dexter, and Sherlock. I'm currently catching up on Supernatural since I stopped watching during the 6th season; I'm in the middle of the 7th season now.  I've also watched all Episodes of Orange is the New Black and have started rewatching Six Feet Under on Amazon Prime.  My life is excite!!!!

  • My fugly face


  • That's about it.  If you have any questions about anything, feel free to ask in comments or message me.  Namaste.  :)

I love the names of your pets. :)

You draw too! Awesome.

I remember one of my teachers in high school helping me identify as agnostic; I didn't have the language. He was awesome.

I love New Agey stuff too; it's so interesting!
Jojo: kittyglowquixotic_crush on March 9th, 2012 06:01 pm (UTC)
Well I wish I could say I came up with the names. Chloe is named for An Chloe, an art song composed by Mozart that I sang for a HS singing competition. She was just a kitten I called "kitty" and when I'd practice it, she'd always want me to hold her. Bentley was a stray I brought home and my friend and her boyfriend just happen to be over and they named him. Baby was a feral I caught and brought home and she's really small like a baby. My mother named Dinky. He's half chihuahua and rat terrier and I wanted to name him Dobby because he has big bat ears but mom won that argument because she refused to call him Dobby and I didn't want him to be confused about his name. Luna is half Beagle and Lab and she's from a litter of puppies my sister's dog had and so my 10 year old niece, of course, named all the puppies the day they were born. Luna was the one I picked out and brought home :)

I yes I love to draw, when I have the time.

I discovered agnosticism from a book :)

First, you are NOT FUGLY!! You should take that right off this post! You're quite pretty so knock that sh*t off!

Next, OMG, you draw Colin sooo well! I always wished I could draw. Alas, my talents lay more in watercolor landscape and still-life. Also, I make jewelry. Right now that's pretty much the extent of my artistic abilities.

My accident was over 2 years ago but before that I used to run too. I was up to 6 miles in 60 minutes when the jerk who hit my car messed me all up. I didn't run every day but about 3 days a week. The rest of the week I did yoga and some weight training. I have a lot of chronic health problems but was managing them very well through diet and exercise. I can't wait for the day I get the clearance to go back to the gym! I never thought I'd miss it but I do, terribly.

I too am an agnostic but recently I've figured out that I'm just too spiritually lazy to belong to any organized religion.

Seems we have a lot in common! Thanks so much for friending me :D

It's lovely to meet you. It's wonderful Colin has been inspirational and it's great you're drawing again. He's certainly lovely subject matter.

That image you posted of yourself shows a beautiful girl. I really hope you can see that, too.
Jojo: Colindimplequixotic_crush on January 25th, 2013 03:00 am (UTC)
Well I was drawing. I haven't drawn anything in almost a year. But before that I hadn't drawn in years.
Colin is lovely subject matter but very frustrating to draw. Not only are his features very unique and specific, its hard to stare at him for that long without getting all weak in the knees and overheated. lol

Thank you for the nice compliment. My opinion of myself changes daily. lol Sometimes I see a pretty young lady and other times I look at myself like "Ugh! Go away!"

Hi, I just read your post on an add-me community.

I'm actually on a short hiatus, but would love to get to know you once I return. That's if you don't mind of course :)

Fugly? You're clearly being facetious right?

You have a lot of artistic talent :)

I can totally relate to having social anxieties.

Im glad I stumbled on your profile!
Jojoquixotic_crush on February 2nd, 2015 11:30 pm (UTC)
Actually I was being serious about my fat face, lol! Thank you for the complement :) I added you back.
