Hi, I'm Jess and I was most certainly born in the wrong decade. I picture myself belonging in the 70s, and I have taken up quite an interest in that decade specifically. I know so much about it - the clothes, the music, the politics, the crazes and trends. Between reading about it online and asking parents and friends' parents of their experiences and memories, I have come to know a lot about it.
Besides that, my style is unlike most kids my age. I wear "bell-bottomed" jeans, Bohemian-style shirts, or band t-shirts. My favorite bands are all from decades before my own, with the exception of a few... but they are mostly folk, reggae or ska.
My favorites include The Beatles, Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Van Halen, Sublime, Coldplay, CSNY, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Boston, Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Rush, Grateful Dead, Steve Miller Band, Janis Joplin, State Radio... etc, etc.
I am infatuated with peace, herbal tea, hemp and anything else coming from the marijuana plant :) I have my own variations of belief. I believe in & love Jesus but I don't always agree with the Catholic church, which is what I was raised in, and so I found my own way to express my religion.
I play the guitar and the piano, I write a LOT of music, and poems, and stories. I am also a photographer and my next camera I will purchase will be a vintage Nikon, and maybe maybe a Polaroid camera *crosses fingers.* I really dislike technology and I'd rather be in an open field with my guitar listening to nature and trying to play along.
