Bloodying the Keel

4 Dec

Hello fellow voyagers! This first post is going to be boring, but I promise they’ll get better. This is just a formality, and I hate them but they are necessary apparently–hence the title “Bloodying the Keel.”

I love music. And more than in an “OMG I’m soooo obsessed with this band!” kind of way. I’m determined to be in the music industry, through journalism, promoting, and eventually through owning my own venue. This is the me setting the sail in my voyage.

Who am I? Jessica Heffner. I’m 19, and I don’t have a long enough life to do all the things I plan to accomplish. I’m an English major, planning on educating your youth in the joys of classic literature and persuasive essays. I have a mother who teaches elementary school, a brother who’s just about to graduate college to become a ship captain, and a cat named Amicus who is just precious! I love performing, and I have found an outlet where my passion and talent coincide–burlesque. I have a messed up sleep schedule, due to the fact that I work nights and go to school in the afternoon. I can’t function if I’m up before 11 am, so most of the posts will be made during late night.

Why the pirate theme? My favorite book is Treasure Island, and Skeleton Island is the name of an island off the island in which Cap’n Flint burried his treasure. I also believe I was a pirate in a past life. Call me crazy, but I don’t care. It is what it is.

What can you expect from this blog? This is going to be my personal blog, through and through. I will feature some music related posts now and then, but it will mostly relate to my life experiences. I have a lot of big events coming up in my life, and I want to share them with everyone.
