Today I’m 29



Well…This is not where I imagined myself to be today. Quarantined with 10k+ in revenue gone in a matter of days. That’s 25% what I circulated last year gone in two weeks.

On the bright side, I believe this pandemic is over its worst here in Washington. We are beginning to recover and life is starting to get back to normal. Today, I am 29.

We will recover from this. The studio will come back stronger.

Today, I am 29 years old. This last decade has been so defining. The last 10 years brought me here. And that’s okay. It’s real and it’s raw.

We have doubled down on the legal side of the company. By 2021 we will be air tight protected. No more “trust” over here.

I feel like I’ve lost my last drop of childhood innocence through this. I mourned that. I’m still mourning it. I openly admitted several times in the last couple weeks that I am not okay. Clynn has been the perfect support. He’s very proud of me and so understanding. I’m eternally grateful for that.

I wish more people understood. How much I was willing to give. How much I already gave. I realized through this how little people see and care what I do or have done. In all honesty…probably 8 people will read this post and 6 of them will be my family. After five years of giving.

It’s partially my fault. There’s so much make believe in our minds.

It’s freeing.

To know I can actually do whatever I want. I don’t have to hold myself hostage to my inbox. I don’t have to wrack my mind constantly of what I can do next. It’s okay to rest. It’s okay to invest where I want.

Through this pandemic, I’ve realized NO ONE was asking of me what I was giving. It was border line abusive what I’ve been doing to myself and my family with this company.

My family gets a paycheck now. Happy Birthday to me.

There is a lot to be grateful for.

We will still probably buy land in December. I will still probably run away to Europe for a week this year. We will still probably sit by my favorite pool at my favorite sushi restaurant in Central America soon.

I am sad and disappointed in humanity. But who isn’t at one point or another? I am happy to be distancing myself further from the masses.

You can find me here. For now. Typing WAY too much personal info than any professional brand should. I’m no one’s slave. That’s pretty cool.

Sincerely, Jaclynn

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
