Hi, I’m Jenelle.

I’m a lifelong kid from London, Ontario, Canada and I like to learn, play, and create.

This combination serves me well in exploring new hobbies and interests, and allows me to start an infinite number of things that I never finish.

After ten years of trying to narrow things down, I’ve finally given up and have instead chosen to pursue every single thing that interests me. Here you will find many of those things, perhaps someday even all of those things, but for now, welcome to the grab bag of my work-in-progress life. Thanks for stopping by.

I always have side projects on the go. Most of them never see the light of day the Internet, but here are a few I’ve done enough on to share.

HOBBIES AND INTERESTS

These are a few of my favourite things…

LEARNING

Anything and everything. Self-improvement, general knowledge, useful skills, and useless skills mostly.

READING

Mostly non-fiction due to my love of learning. I like fiction too, but that usually takes a back seat.

FILM & ANIMATION

I love a good film and have a pretty decent animation collection. I especially love that good old traditional hand drawn stuff. 

GAMES & PUZZLES

Board games, jigsaw puzzles, escape rooms, Rubik’s cubes and other brain teasers.

TRAVEL

Seeing the world and taking pictures and videos of it all. I have yet to travel outside North America but you can bet I have a lengthy bucket list of places to see.

SPORTS

Playing hockey might just be my favourite thing in the world. Soccer definitely doesn’t compare, but I still love playing it with my friends in the summer.

EPHEMERA

I collect small boxes, trinkets, and ephemera based on my love of vintage design and handlettering. Antique stores are my favourite kind of store.

NATURE

I love spending time in nature, especially going for walks. I’m one of those (rare?) Canadians that actually loves winter and all the snow that it brings.

MY CAT, MAX

Sir Maxwell Richard Carter to be more precise. He’s also sometimes referred to as “punkin baby friend.” He’s perfect.

SOLITUDE

I’m an introvert. Please don’t contact me unless it’s regarding something meaningful.

“I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.” ― Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
