Introducing – Bookworm by Design


Since I’ve been gone so long, let me give you a recap of things that have happened since I last posted in (oh God) January, as well as a re-introduction for the new readers!

Let’s start with the introduction!


Hello! I’m Jess! (The one on the right with the blonde hair in a braid) I’m a bookworm with a yearly average of about 90+ books that I read. My genre’s of choice are horror, thriller, mystery, and YA. I’m a crazy cat mom to currently one kitty named Yuki, who we adopted (Adopt don’t shop!) who turned a year old rather recently! She’s spoiled. Last night I ordered chinese take out because I’m not a huge fan of cooking, I also have a problem with Chipotle. (It feels like I go there ALL THE TIME!) Seriously. I love it. I’m residing in Texas and am still adapting to the weather change. I mean, Pittsburgh and Houston are pretty different.

Now that you know me, let’s cover some things that have happened since the start of the year!

  • I got a new job and started working as a graphic designer for a medium sized business, it’s radical! (Thanks once again Meagan for being a magical ray of sunshine in my life)
  • I’ve started and almost finished all the scrubs, except for the 9th season, because that season doesn’t count
  • I’ve read quite a lot of books, 17 so far actually!
  • I’ve backed a lot of Kickstarter projects, because I have a low-key addiction
  • Speaking of low-key addictions, I’ve been playing a lot of Love Live School Idol on my phone
  • I feel like I’ve become better at adulting
  • I got a tattoo and dyed my hair, you know, rebelling or something like that (not really though, just being me)
  • Unsurprisingly I’ve done next to nothing to plan for my wedding, but I still have a year and 4 months to start planning
  • Became a regular at the Starbucks by my work, they even know my drink!
  • I mean the big thing is the job, I’m just trying to think of other things that have happened….
  • Oh yeah! I turned 25! That’s actually pretty big…now that I think about it….


I’m still going about changes on the blog, fixing old posts, weeding out old posts that no longer really fit, re-working things, writing new pages, and generally just getting back on the blog train. (It’s literally taken like 5 hours or more to write 400 words)


By Jess

A bookworm since the tender age of whenever I stopped chewing on books and started actually reading them. A cat-mom, graphic designer, and introvert originally from Pittsburgh, but now resides in the humid, hot, state of Texas. Cheers!

  • Happy belated birthday! You got a tattoo! Awesome! Need to see pics! Congrats on the job and the adulting! I’m so addicted to Kickstarter too!!
    Sincerely, Sara

    • I plan on making a little post about the tattoo! 🙂 Thank you! Feels weird to be 25!

    “I’ve started and almost finished all the scrubs, except for the 9th season, because that season doesn’t count.” YES!!! Haha, I’m a huge Scrubs fan, and season 9 was a travesty.

    Congrats on the job, that’s excellent! So awesome that you got a tattoo as well. 🙂 And I feel you on the Kickstarter addiction…I’ve held back a bit this year but there are so many awesome projects out there!

    • Scrubs was AWESOME! I keep telling myself I’m going to hold off on Kickstarter….and then I see something and I can’t help myself!! Especially all the awesome comics!!

  • YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!! You’re back! Success!
