My name is Jenna—recent recipient of a B.A. in Political Science and English from the University of Minnesota, Qdoba vegetarian burrito addict, Harry Potter fanatic, and office assistant extraordinaire. I currently reside in apartment 403 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where I have the privilege of living with three lovely ladies: my beautiful and marvelous sister (Allison), my fabulous and brilliant best friend (Maren), and the cutest Yorkshire Terrier/biggest diva in existence (Maggie).
I’m also lucky to be surrounded by other great people, including my two wonderful parents, my other sister, Katie, who can’t be my roommate because she’s a real adult in South Dakota, and my little brother, Michael, who actually happens to be much taller than me and a soon-to-be high school freshman!
Up until very recently I spent most of my time on schoolwork (a.k.a. Facebook and stumbleupon.com). But now I’ve walked across the stage, switched my tassel, and received a leather-bound booklet that will house my diploma…once it arrives in the mail. I’ve spent the past 17 years in school preparing for where I am now—adulthood. Yet, I seem no closer now than I was in Kindergarten to knowing what I want to do with the rest of my life. Some days it’s working in children’s literature, others an attorney, and sometimes, when I’ve feeling really ambitious, a ballerina. For now, I’ve come to the conclusion that what I need is more school. But for the time being I have decided to take the next year off and blog. Well, not just blog. I also intend to take the office world by storm with my copying and scanning skills, read, watch so many movies it’s ridiculous, plan and execute unbelievable adventures in apartment 403 (and beyond), all while blogging along the way.
I’ve wanted to join the elusive blog-o-sphere for a while now, but where does one start? As luck would have it, my roommate Maren offered me just the beginning I needed. A title for my blog: Apartment 403. So I’ve unashamedly decided to use her suggestion (it’s justified considering it was most likely offered to give her a reprieve J). Also, did I mention she’s brilliant? So there you have it folks. Welcome to apartment 403, the chronicles of my new beginning!
