Awakening from the Shadow Box
Poetry starting from 2012
by Go Brewers!
My name is Jessica, woohoo! I know, boring stuff. Well, here are more important things you should know about me.
I am 23 years old, and was born on July 4, 1989. My astrological sign is cancer and follow the definition exactly; I am moody, sensitive, caring and quiet. I'm short (4'11) and I have medium length dark brown hair, that I'm trying to grow long again. I also have brown eyes, which people say is my best feature. I am mostly of Italian heritage, but I am a little Irish. I have really pale skin; I can't be out in the sun long and I prefer not to be out long anyway... sunburn = skin cancer = the devil. I live in the suburbs of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania with my mom, dad and my cat Mimi. I work as a page at the local library and as an instructor/secretary at West Chester University; I take my jobs very seriously and I love my jobs with every fiber of my being. I graduated from Upper Merion High School in June 2008; where my favorite subjects were German, history and English. I'm majoring in English with minors in creative writing and philosophy and electives in Arabic at West Chester University (I am also a commuter student).

*Hobbies and strange things about me*
I am obsessed with the Civil War. I love going to Civil War museums and learning more about it. I also love history- I live and breathe it. Other areas in history I'm interested in is World War II, German, Norwegian, Russian and American history. I also speak German, Arabic and French, though I'm not fluent in it yet... but I plan to be in the next five years. I love learning languages. I also recently just got into philosophy. It's really fun to think. I probably don't strike you as much of a sports person,but I'm a HUGE Packers fan, I love the whole team and association; they really care about the fans and community. Ravens, Broncos and Chargers are other teams I like-- I am a football girl at heart. I also love working out and being active. When I'm not playing football or walking, I love listening to music, drawing, scrapbooking and other creative things.
I joined Writing.com on February 24, 2006. I fell instantly in love with the site; I loved the features it offered and the members were great when it comes time for useful criticism. The Writing.com community has to be one of the nicest group of people I've ever met and talked to; they are very respectable, caring, generous and just overall wonderful. This section will offer you a chance to look at my favorite pieces and my favorite authors via this site. I am also posting my works; comments are welcomed and encouraged.
iKïyå§ama . I met Kiya about a month or so after I joined this site. I commented one of her stories (or she commented one of mine; can't remember exactly) and we started to talk. Kiya is a very talented writer, and her status (and how quickly she moved up) on Writing.com proves that. She is also very kind and generous; I can't also forget fun. Kiya offers many contests from A Picture Is Worth A 1000 Words to Cultural Contests.
Barbs . Barbs was one of my first friends on Writing.com. Like Kiya and Tim, she has been here for me through the rough and good times. Barbs is also a talented writer and a kind soul. Please check her out as well.
JudyB . Judy was like a second mother to me. Sadly, she passed away from Leukemia on January 31, 2010. I have no idea where I would be with out her, especially with her support and advice. She was a strong woman and failure was not in her repertoire; she's one of my heroines. I really admired her hard work and dedication to her family and friends.
Other favorites around WDC. There are just so many talented writers:

Photography is very important to me. I hope when I'm done college I can become a photographer and combine it with my writing.
