5 questions with guest interview

My name is Jessica Jenkins I am a self-growth and lifestyle blogger. I started blogging in March of 2020 and love it so much! My hobbies include baking as well as graphic design and I do consider myself a professional at watching Netflix. I decided to start blogging because I have always wanted to be a blogger and I finally decided to go for it, and I’m so glad I did. I am 16 years old. One of my dreams is to live in Paris, France for 3 months and to learn to speak french fluently. That’s just a bit about me!

1. Recall your worst heartbreak. Who brought the sunshine back to your life? 

 This was never a relationship but I was talking to this guy (he was a friend at the time) he said he had always liked me and well, all the usual lines. I was young so I fell for it. We talked for about a week every single day. 

The truth is I never really had a crush on him but I liked the attention so I thought I did (even though I totally didn’t). Eventually one morning he texted me and said it wouldn’t work out. I already knew this especially because I didn’t want to date him, but I was respectful and we stopped talking. 

The next day at school my best friend said that he had confessed his love for her. The same day he told me “it wouldn’t work out”. I guess my heart didn’t break because of him but I felt terrible about myself because I began to compare myself to my best friend. That was the heartbreaking part of it. 

I guess I would say I probably brought the sunshine back into my life. I’ve always been more of a “do it myself” kind of person so I’m also oftentimes my own hypeman. I did however have lots of friends and family who were there to help me out. The moral of the story is to remember your worth even when you feel like you don’t have any. You feel you feels but always remember you can pick yourself back up!

2. What’s your message to teen rebels your age? 

As long as you are safe and feel good about what you are doing, go ahead and keep it up! Living your teen years to the fullest is important, just as long as you don’t put yours or others in danger. 

My form of rebellion is through my blog. I had a lot of people judge me but more importantly, I have a lot of people supporting me. I say it’s never too early to start pursuing your dream!

3. How do you spread positivity to cynical people? 

I’ve always been told to set a good example. I never try to change another person because nine times out of ten they won’t change. My biggest way of spreading positivity is by being a positive person. I make sure I am always kind to others and hope that maybe my positivity rubs off on them. 

4. Are you living your life to the fullest right now or still holding back from improving your potential? Why? 

At the moment in some aspects I am definitely living my life to the fullest but in others, I definitely want to improve. I want to improve mostly in my social life. I’m extremely introverted so I’m trying to reach out to more people and be more social. I definitely have my close friends but I definitely prefer a less social life. 

5. If you were to create your ideal house, how would you like it to look like?

My inspiration house is Shea McGee’s house. Super light and airy with touches of boho and modern. I basically have it all planned out too. I want to live in Draper, Utah (I have no idea why) but I definitely want it to be like 5,000-6,000 sq feet. With arches and windows everywhere. Studio McGee is definitely my inspiration style. It’s so beautiful! So basically that’s my dream house base. 


  1. I really enjoyed reading these responses. I think this pandemic and taught everyone to safely live life to the fullest. Prior I feel like we took so much for granted, the little and big things. I feel much more appreciative now.
