About Me


I always feel strange having to describe myself.

Okay, let’s do this.

Hello! Welcome to the personal journal for the BornJennius. My name is Jennifer.

I am the Born Jennius.

“Jennius” is a play on my name and the word “genius.” I like to say that “My brother’s the Genius; I’m the Jennius.”

No, my brother’s name is not any version of “Gene.” He’s just very intelligent.

“Born Jennius” also points toward how I tend to do goofy things by virtue of being me. For example, I have scratched my face, almost poking an eye once, while changing out of a top. I have walked out of the house not realizing that my shirt or jacket was inside out – sometimes, even backwards. I have walked and then not-so-much a few times (without tripping on anything, I will suddenly find myself on the ground). My brain knows what I want to say but my mouth often refuses to say it, so I will do things like call Mark Hamill “Mark Harmon” instead (and the Genius likes to remind me of that one; I think it’s his favorite). I very much do un-genius things.

As mentioned earlier, this is my online personal journal, so I post what I want to share here. A few subjects I tend to post about rather often are ones like makeup, photos that I take, Christianity, and my Healthy Go journey. Sometimes I’ll post about my experiences at an event, or in life.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you will stick around for a while!
