Life is all about progress, not perfection.

My name is Jenny. I'm 22, straightedge, and vegetarian. I live in Portland, Oregon. I study English, German, Sex/Gender Studies, and Secondary Education at Portland State University. I'm an atheist influenced by Buddhism. I love music of all kinds, but metal is my favorite. I have tattoos, piercings, and crazy colored hair. I bake and cook and read and explore and go to concerts and try to lead a life I'll be happy about when I'm old and withered.


I’m so tired of people telling me German is an “ugly, angry” language. When my German teacher tells us jokes it’s the sweetest, happiest language in the world. When I teach my father the word for daughter he smiles, repeating “Tochter” to himself until he gets it right, and in that moment German sounds like pride. There’s nothing angry or ugly about a language that never says goodbye, only “until we meet again.”

There is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.

I want to be around people that do things. I don’t want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things.

There is no shame in being hungry for another person. There is no shame in wanting very much to share your life with somebody.
