Hi, I’m Jane. 👋

Someone once told me I’m like a Sour Patch Kid and that some people find that endearing. They weren’t one of them. 🤷‍♀️

I’m the kind of person who’s got your six, but won’t tolerate your BS. Seriously—don’t lie to me; it’s insulting. 💩

A Hufflepuff, I’m going to hold you to the same expectations and treat you the same regardless of who you are. I believe environmental conservation is a) a spectrum and b) a lifestyle. Accessibility should not be omitted from environmental activism and is necessary if any of us expects to see real change in this department. 💁‍♀️

My hobbies include binging fiction, gardening, and coloring with crayons in children’s coloring books. Also cruising Pinterest and learning Japanese 🇯🇵. I’m nocturnal 🦉, to the dismay of my family. I defy societal norms, not to conform, but because to conform would mean changing myself to please others—and I don’t do this anymore. 🙅‍♀️ Likewise, I don’t like to talk about things before they surface, because I feel it’s too pretentious in a life I’m not in control of. 🙄 Green tea and rooibos tea are the only cups of literal tea I like—and I like ’em cold. ☕️❄

Emoji help me communicate my emotions and personality. 😌

I’m currently in the process of making food my friend, which I totally stole from Finding Nemo. In sixth grade, I developed eating disorder tendencies and have since been treated for what is now recognized as other specified food and eating disorders (OSFED). The diagnosis of airborne and food allergies in 2013 exacerbated my eating disorder, and let’s just call it what it is: a process.

Locally grown in Texas, I’m currently holed up in a suburban city about 30 minutes outside Dallas (which I like to avoid unless food or the DWAZoo is involved). No zombies yet, but there is a tom cat that growls at me through my window at 3am. 🐱

His name’s Newt, and this is me farther away from Dallas, on my grandmother’s old Combine farm.

Janepedia is a place about me, with a lil’ somethin’-somethin’ for you, too. Maybe. Sometimes it’s serious, but usually it’s about crying over television with a glass of Pepsi, drunken experiences, total “Jane” moments, laughing at myself, and DIY projects I don’t fail at.

OfBlue hosts this circus, while Georgie made this joint look like a sassy gem. 🔥💎
