Hi, I’m Jennifer Chait… welcome!
Slices of Green
In 2005 I started my first blog, Balance. To quote that blog’s About page…
Balancing all the variables of my life: [insert ever-changing variables here]… Just trying to keep my world smooth and laugh out the rough spots.
Such a short About page! Still, it was true in 2005 and it’s true today and something I’d like to do now – balance my life a bit better.
All the sites I write for currently have a niche. At Balance I just wrote about life in general. I miss the randomness and personal aspects of Balance, and I also miss writing about writing and blogging, which I’ve done for others, but not often for myself… So, here I am.
What I do
Career wise, I’m a writer… sort of. I’m more like a writer on hiatus, though this might change soon. Not that I’m abstaining entirely. I still do write, just not as much lately.
I have a super awesome 15-year-old son, Cedar and a great boyfriend, Shajee. Those two take up a bulk of my time so far as people are concerned. Yeah, I know a lot of other folks, but how long do you want this about page to be?
What I love
The rain, music, books, writing (usually), my people (above), my friends and family, and coffee – barrels and barrels of coffee.
What I like
Hiking when I can (rare nowadays), drawing and sharpie pens, ice pops, Portland, Oregon, traveling, good beer, and organizing stuff.
What I hate
Spiders, casinos, swimming in water where you can’t see the bottom (sea monsters!) and how crowded and expensive Portland has become.
What surprises people about me
I love Zelda video games. I like other video games too, but Zelda games will always be the best.
That’s me in a nutshell.
