The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!This is my first WordPress post about the journey of our family in my final year of college and our subsequent move to the south of Spain.

I should start I suppose by introducing who I am to you the potential reader.My name is Jenni. I am a forty-year-old mother and wife. But I don’t feel this categorisation defines me entirely.I am also a lover of all things creative. I have a passion for drama and theatre and especially diverse performance. I love children’s theatre and equally love the classic and ancient world. I am a keen traveler and I love new challenges. I am known from my past to be an excellent salesperson and a good manager of people. I am what you would call the ultimate team player.I adore learning new things, hence why I decided to re-enter college after popping out two beautiful kids.

Let me start by saying I am a latecomer to the world of academia and was very trepidatious about re-entering college at the ripe old age of 37 especially with two small kids at home and a very busy husband.I did, however, complete a Bachelors of Arts specializing in Drama. And wow my whole life changed. I was opened up to theories and mindsets that I had never dreamed of while changing endless nappies in my quiet west of Ireland home. I have become a critical thinker in ways I never imagined. I now find it impossible to watch television without pulling the whole film or programme apart, much to my daughters amusement and my husbands annoyance. So ill sign off for now and I hope to keep this blog filled with updates on all the trials and errors I encounter in the next nine months of minor dissertations, packing for moving away, settling in a new country…and also fulfilling my dreams of creating new works for the theatre world. THanks for reading this and watch this space
