100 things

  1. My name is Jennifer.
  2. I am an Aries.
  3. Since my daughter was born when I was only 22 years old, we have essentially grown up with each other.
  4. I am often asked if we're sisters. =) She hates that.

  6. Most of my senior year in high school, I slept on the floor next to my bed. I guess it was too soft.
  7. Though I have always loved silver jewelry, my high school class ring was gold (with a black onyx - because it was different).
  8. I remember telling a military recruiter that I wanted to learn Russian. He said that they could arrange that. This was in 1991. Btw, I have never learned to speak it or any other language as fluently as my native tongue. ;)
