Once upon a time, there was a little, oddly-shaped hermit girl who lived in a small, hippie-inspired apartment in a big city far, far away from home. She had opinions on lots of things and felt like dedicating her life to a cause greater than herself. Without being able to go outside for fear of the stupidity of society, and with nothing to contribute to the world but her loudmouthed mockery, she made a pact with herself to reignite her blog and to post every single day in 2011. And in a true display of creativity and wit, she named it The Jackie Blog.
After successfully writing a post every day and gaining a surprising and lovely following, Jackie trudged onward in her quest to maintain her blog forevermore, vowing to post every Wednesday and perhaps even jaunt about for a Lollipop Tuesday or two, while challenging herself to more 365 Challenges. For 2013, she’s launched Project Fat Ass 365, wherein she pledged to exercise every day for at least 20 minutes on a quest to transform from gelatinous couch-bound goo pile to hard bodied hottie who has finished a 10K.
In 2014, she set out to tackle a new 30 Day Challenge for each and every month, suggested and voted on by readers. She failed miserably. In fact, she fell off the map entirely and was sucked into seemingly eternal damnation and was only pulled out a year later, in September of 2015 to confess her sins. But because she was truly changed on the inside, it was found she had been training for a half marathon during the hiatus and shortly thereafter, completed it.
Onward she trudges, year after year, to continue to dedicate herself to doing things she hates that are probably actually really good for her.
Welcome to the gooey insides of my brain. Stay a while. It’s warm. ♣
