my name is jess O.
i am very sad when my margarita is gone
i'm your average 20-something living in philadelphia, finishing graduate school (for molecular biology!) and spending my time making deeply fabulous knit and crochet accessories. i live in my lovely apartment (we have a deck! on which i scare the neighbors and photograph myself) with my fiance and our cat clea (who is scared of her own shadow). this fall, after 6 and a half years of courtship me and bryan (the boy) are making it official and getting married. i'm a little bit of a reluctant bride (weddings are seriously silly) but i'm so excited to start this new chapter.
a few random facts about me...
i'm a sucker for anything navy blue, striped or vaguely nautical.
i can read really fast, it's my lame super power.
i'm a happy vegetarian and i'm completely obsessed with food.
i love to travel and want to go anywhere and everywhere.
i'm obsessed with NPR. kai ryssdal is my boyfriend, he just doesn't know it.
i love yoga but i've never been able to touch my toes.
my biggest pet peeve in life is when people remark on how tired i look.
i also don't understand why liking cats and disliking dogs makes me a social outcast
