Hi friends!

Welcome to my little corner of Al Gore’s Internet. I’m Jareesa - I’m a scientist, a freelance writer, a knitter, wife to LM, mom to #BabyPi, and more. I love Queen Bey, squishy yarn, watching GBBO, and attempting to bake. Sometimes I rant, sometimes I rave, but I always tell the truth.

Another One Gone Too Soon

Heard about Amy Winehouse's death thanks to the Twitter. I was immediately saddened. I loved love me some Amy Winehouse. That big voice that came out of that little woman - it captured so much emotion, so much pain, that only a gifted artist can. She was my musical Sylvia Plath - able to beautifully & sweetly express all the anguish & pain I've felt in my own life. Amy's music spoke to me in a way that will always be special.

I will forever be saddened that she wasn't able to overcome her demons. RIP Amy Winehouse.

A couple of my faves from her:

"He Can Only Hold Her"

"Me and Mr Jones"
