I wrote this in 2011 for my Psychology class. It’s weird looking back on this because I wrote about J, who I most definitely am not in a relationship with anymore. Wow, times have changed…

In my opinion, intuition is your gut feeling, voice in your head, God speaking, and many other names for your inner voice. It is almost instinctual, in a sense, built on your primal thoughts and reactions. Of course, it can be influenced by outside forces, but inherently it’s your individual, raw thoughts inside of you.

I mostly trust my intuition. It has been correct many times, more so than wrong. The most times it has been incorrect is when I was going after crushes on boys I had in the past. One in particular was devastating, and led to my first bipolar episode. But I’m very glad I went through all of those rejections because it helped me to find the love of my life, and the man that I am pretty confident that I will marry. In that sense, my refined intuition was very helpful and correct. Although, sometimes I have uncomfortable feelings when seeing him conversing with other girls online (We’re in a long distance relationship). But he assures me that it’s nothing to worry about. He has never been unfaithful in any of his girlfriends in the past, and my relationship has so far lasted six times longer than his second longest relationship. In that way, my inner voice could use a little confidence boost and more faith in him. But what woman doesn’t wonder about their partner?

It is very useful, learning to understand and think about how correct your intuition can be. As is always the case, it can be wrong. Don’t put all of your faith in it. But do trust that it’s your mind giving you some advice that can be useful.

(Here are more dreams from young Jenna!)

February 3, 2000:

I dreamt that I was at school, and we did our normal things that we usually do every morning. Then it was time for our bee on the Southeast States and Capitals. I got sick in the middle of it.


February 13, 2000:

(I made a note that I was 19 in this dream. I dreamt this at age 9.)

I dreamt that we had a family reunion at my house. We also invited good friends of ours. When we were waiting outside a car drove up. A woman came outside and a 20 year-old boy that looked a lot like Lance. I just stared there at the boy and then I fainted. The boy and his mom rushed to my side (so did my mom). My mom could not carry me inside so the boy did. He carried me all the way to my bed. Everyone then went downstairs except the boy. He knew a way to wake me up. He kissed me. I did wake up. I asked him why he kissed me, and he said he kissed me because he loved me the moment he saw me. I said that I did too. When we went downstairs we walked close to each other. When it was bedtime the boy had nowhere to sleep, so I let him sleep in my bed with me. He was delighted to. While we were in bed, he told me that he was really Lance from NSYNC, and he was madly in love with me. I said I was too. The next day Lance asked my parents if he could take me horseback riding. They said yes. We went horseback riding. At the end he kissed me. We had many adventures together. In the end, we married.


November 6, 2000:

My class was doing a class trip to this one museum. It was pretty boring. Then we came across a sign. “The chute and chair flight that was under construction is now open!” My friends and I went up the stairs. My brother was ahead of me. We came to the front then. We went up this little ramp, but there wasn’t any air power to shoot you out. My brother went and did it. When he landed on the chair, I heard a voice call to him. “Where’s your sister? I have to talk to her.” I called down, “I’m coming!” So I flew down and landed gracefully on the chair. I saw a cute boy looking at me in a surprised look. “That was so cool! I wouldn’t be able to do that!” As I was coming down, he caught me. “That was beautiful! You’re beautiful!” He kissed me.


(I sure was a romantic, even back 13 years ago!)

(Hello everyone! It’s been a while I know! My life has been more busy lately, and just last weekend I had a birthday extravaganza! My birthday was last Saturday, April 13th. I had quite a fantastic time, and already this new year of life for me is off to a pretty great start! There are daunting aspects as well, but c’est la vie.

I wanted to share a few dreams that I recorded in my dream journal when I was a lot younger, in case you were interested in delving into the fascinating subconscious mind of a younger me.)


August 2, 1999:

I was near a castle when the guards found me. They put me in a peanut butter jar. Then they put me in the kitchen. The Prince came in the kitchen because he was hungry. He almost ate me. Other people came in and almost ate me.


August 3, 1999:

I was in college. After a while, I could choose my career. I could be a singer, writer, or a actress. I couldn’t decide. Then I asked if I could do all of them. They said I could do one at a time.


August 4, 1999:

I was an ice skater and so was Tara from my school. We had to find out who was better. The winner got to spend a vacation with Tara Lipinski. When Tara was up, she scored 7.9’s only. When I was up, I scored all 9.9’s. I was the winner.


August 26, 1999:

I dreamt that I went to Aunt Cindy’s house. My mom was there too. We had lots of fun. Uncle Gary was not there. One day we went to a concert. We saw NSYNC. We were up front. Lance was always standing and looking at me. Then we went home and went to bed. The next day, it was time to go. So I packed. When I was in the car I checked my things. When suddenly, “I forgot my bra!!!!!!”


October 10, 1999:

I dreamt that we got a cd order form in the mail. We did not know but JT ordered some. Then they came in the mail. We were surprised. He ordered a Britney Spears for me!

November 7, 1997:


I like the bus. Somtimes it’s noisy, but I think the people on the bus are crazy. Most of the people are nice. The people I don’t like are: Gary and Chris.

(I remember Gary threatened to climb up to my window, cut the glass with a knife and come into my room. I told my parents, and my dad talked to his dad. Apparently, he liked me. That’s a creepy way to express admiration, I’ll tell you that!)

A Boring Day

Today is a very boring day.

The goose would never lay.

When I lost my sock,

It gave me a shock.

Today is a very boring day.

But now it’s a very happy day.

To: Dad

Roses are red, Violets are blue, I love you more than an ice cold brew.

February 6, 1998:

If I were…

If I were president I would make new laws, make sure all the animals are safe, and nobody hurts other people. If I were a whale I would watch for whaleing ships, try not to get myself beached, or watch for nets. If I were a book, I would like it when people read me, and I want people to take care of me. I don’t like it when people rip my pages. If I were a book I would be a chapter book.

February 7, 1998:


When I go to sleep I sometimes hear my Daddy snore. When my grandparents come I stay in JT’s room (like right now). I like sleeping.


When I wake up I see the light of day. My mom sometimes wakes me up or I wake up myself. Sometimes we eat late and sometimes early.

(I have so many journals of when I was younger! I found another one, and this one was when I was 7 1/2 years old!)


The Wind

I like the wind. I like the way it blows in my hair. It feels cold. The more I feel it the more I feel cold. I can feel the wind now.

All About Apples

Apples start out as a seed. I’m going apple picking. There’s all kinds of apples. I like apples.

Franklin the turtle

Once my brother and my mom found a baby turtle. So they picked him out and put him in a box. When I came home from my friend’s house he showed me the turtle. We named him Franklin. He was cute. He was still for awile but after that he walked alot. Then we had to let him go. When I was in bed I was worried about Franklin. It was morning now and I asked my mom if we could look for Franklin again. It was raining. So we went to find him. At first we couldn’t find him but then mom spotted him. So we picked him up and put him in the box again. A couple months later we found out that Nicky the (neighbor’s) dog ate him.

(We later found out that he was a baby alligator snapping turtle! We spotted a bigger one at a little creek near the glen by the woods in my house. This was before they chopped all of the trees down to build a road by my house.)

November 7, 1997:

Today when I came in the classroom everybody was working on their Daily Edit Test. Then we did our spelling test. I’m done with it now and I hope I get everything right! We went for a bathroom break. Then I worked in my reading workbook. I got the Abc order right! Then we sat in a circle on the floor and read the story: A Turkey for Thanksgiving. Then we did a book report on it. After that is was time for lunch. At recess Resha and I played that we were princesses and one day we got lost. And then Resha found our way back. Then the bell rang and we lined up. When we got in we went into Mrs. Hawkins room for a movie. It was called Runaway Ralph. When we came out we went to P.E. When we came back, then we washed our hands. Our teacher told us that there will be a tornado drill, and we can’t go by any windows. After that we finished our oral book reports. Then Mrs. Hawkins class came to our class and watched a play. Then we packed and stacked. After that we lined up. Now we are on the bus. I did get the spelling test right!

(This is the last excerpt from my third grade journal back in 1999!)

Mom (a poem)

I loved you since the day I was born,

I still love you right this morn.

I would give you a rose,

So now it’s time to blow your nose.

You make me cry and you make me mad,

But you also make me laugh and make me feel glad.

I make you do chores,

I feel like shutting the door.

I am sorry I made you mad,

I want you to feel glad.

I never picked you flowers,

I felt as if I had power.

Now I am sorry I made you mad,

I want you to feel glad.

All your kindness would fit in my heart,

But I did not act so smart.

Now I am sorry I made you mad,

I want you to feel glad.

Mom I loved you since the day I was born,

I still love you right this morn.

Stop Hunting Animals!!

I am here to tell you not to hunt animals. Animals are important to us. We can learn from animals. Scientists study animals and even you can study animals too. If people keep hunting animals there would not be enough animals in the zoos. Zoos are really important. If we hunt animals so much, some animals can get extinct. And we would not be able to learn about that animal anymore. You can save animals by not going on their territory. Many people cut down trees. Trees can be many animals’ homes. Raccoons, squirrels, and birds are examples of some animals that live in trees. If we cut down a lot more trees, then pretty soon there would not be any trees left. A lot more animals are dying out besides the ones that live in trees. So please help save the animals.

Ocean Dive

Let’s go on an ocean dive. It will be fun and exiting. First we have to put on special equipment. Of course we have to put on air tanks. We have to put on two air tanks because it is going to take a long time. Now we have the gear on. Now we have to jump in the deep water. It is a beautiful world in the ocean. Notice the colorful rocklike creature. It is called Coral. They come in all different shapes and sizes. Also other animals can live near coral. There is a kind of fish that is made of a boxlike skull. They have to live close to coral so they can hide from bigger fish that want to eat them. Uh-oh I see a Great White Shark. It looks hungry. We better hide from the big hungry shark. Good, the shark did not want to eat us. Oh-no the shark is back again. He looks more hungry every second. It is going toward a poor skinny seal. The shark attacked the poor seal. Oh well it is part of nature’s great balancing act. There are many fish in the sea. Look at the pretty Angelfish. Look at the Blue Whale swimming overhead. It has a huge giant body. Oh man, we have to swim back to the boat. I hope we can go on a dive that was as great as this one.

The End

Nature (a poem)

Nature Nature here it is,

Wherever the outdoors is.

From birds, animals, plants or anything,

On a summer or spring day watch out for the Bee’s sting.

There are millions of species out here,

Fish, plants, and also Deer.

Some of these creatures are dying out,

We want to see the Blue Whale’s spout.

So please help Nature survive,

And do not knock down a bee hive.

How Arizona Feels About Her Students

Arizona can feel many different ways about her students. She feels helpful when a student is having a hard time understanding the work. She goes and helps the student. She felt kind when a student didn’t get the right answer. She just said “try again.” She was caring when someone got hurt. She put a wet cloth on the wound. She was loving and she hugged them when they got good and bad grades. Arizona is a very nice teacher.

Cycle Break 3-31-99

I had a very fun cycle break. Even though it was short. My dad got me a box that I could put my beanie babies in. It goes under my bed. My brownie troop went on a field trip to Bob Kramer’s Marionettes. A man told us about how they make the puppets. After they told us about puppets they put on a show called Sloopy’s Big Romance. It is kind of like Cinderella but there are no bad people in it. Last Sunday night my family went over to our friend’s house for dinner. On Monday we went to the Magic House. Yesterday we went to Lone Elk Park. We also went to a bird place. My favorite bird was Daniel, he was a Perigrine Falcon.
