31 year old cake baking, hat knitting hard ass. I have been living in the great city of Chicago for almost 3 years. I grew up in a VERY small town in Michigan. Welcome to my head…and my life.

I named myself Janed21 for a couple of reasons. The first was because I am not creative at all. The second was because I wanted some anonymity. Three, because 21 is my favorite number even if 17 and 20 were my best years of life, carefree and full of naughty fun. I often regret the choice of JaneD21 but what else was there? It seemed like everything had been taken. I’m not a mom so I can’t go that route. I don’t particularly have any talents that I perform on a regular basis, so I can’t go that route. I figured that by calling myself JaneD21 I was opening myself to the possibilities of blogging about anything I want….hence the “Life in my head” title. I should delve into my brain more and be more interesting but I am kind of hit and miss on the writing talent. Most of my blogs are “on the go” written from my phone or in the few stolen minutes I have with the ONE working computer in my apartment. I’m sorry for not being more interesting, I’ll try to step it up a notch.

A few interesting facts:
-Grew up on a farm. That’s right. A real country girl.
-I took my first plane trip when I was 28.
-I have two cats and I knit…yes, I’m 30 going on 80 and my social life reflects it.
-I like classical novels…. Russian stories are my favorite at the moment.
-Movie-Buff… but who isn’t now a-days
-I like to bake.
-My boyfriend (of almost 3 years) and I just moved  into a one room apartment. We previously lived in a 400 sq ft studio. We like this MUCH better.
-I lost my favorite pet a year ago. My Boyfriend got a kitten when we moved.
Think that is all for now.
