Since I’ve been writing some of these blogs for you to read, I thought it was time that I properly introduced myself.
My name is Jessica Ingram. I am 23 years old and last May I graduated from Mississippi State University with a bachelor’s degree in English. I graduated from Pinson Valley High School in the Birmingham metro area. I currently attend The Church at Brook Hills and live in the Birmingham area. Since you read a lot about what I struggle with, I thought I could tell you some less serious things about myself.
I’m a southern girl through and through. I love football, baseball, basketball, sweet tea, grits, biscuits and gravy, Dr. Pepper, barbeque and pimiento cheese.
A few of my other favorite foods are pizza, macaroni and cheese, bacon, peanut butter, queso dip and desserts (literally all of them).
I love to read. I love mysteries and thrillers and young adult fantasy/adventure. A few of my favorite books/series are Nancy Drew; Harry Potter; The Hunger Games and The Good Daughter.
I also love television and Netflix. I watch a ton of crime shows (I literally mean a ton — you should see the schedule I drew up on my computer so I can make sure I don’t miss any of them). I also love any kind of drama television: political, medical, fantasy, all of it.
I’m a born and bred Auburn girl and after 4 years as at Mississippi State I’m now also a Bulldog (as is my family thanks to me) which creates a sticky situation several times a year.
I love to travel. I haven’t made it very far out of the country (just the Caribbean on cruises), but I dream of exploring the world one day. I have, however, visited 35 out of the 50 states and have plans soon to knock a few more states off the list.
I love live music and concerts. There’s just something about live music that soothes my soul and makes me happy in a way that nothing else does (not even food which is shocking).
Finally, I love dogs. I love all dogs, but I only want to own big dogs. I love labs, shepherds and retrievers. One of my current life goals is to move into a house of my own just so I can get my own dog.
Well … that’s a little bit about me and I hope you enjoy reading the blogs. We would love to hear your feedback, questions and anything you want to see featured on the blog.
