Hello, friends! My name is Jenna, and I am so excited you’ve found my blog!
Pine Trees and English Degrees is a space for me to share who I am and what I’m interested in. I am a writer, and this blog gives me an opportunity to write for a unique, often anonymous audience. Most often, I’ll use my blog to post responses, reactions, and thoughts on pop culture, higher education, and random things in my life. You’ll also get to read bits of my own personal creative writing, and some book recommendations too!
I am a Minnesota girl through and through. I spend most of my time indoors checking things off of my to-do lists, but I do enjoy ice fishing, boating, camping, and general outdoorsy-ness. I just graduated (yay!) with dual degrees in English and Creative and Professional Writing from one of my favorite places on Earth, Bemidji State University. These two quintessential facts about me inspired my blog name: Pine Trees and English Degrees. Witty, right?
When I’m not sitting around an ice hole or snuggled up with assigned literature, I enjoy napping, cooking up something yummy in the kitchen, and volunteering my time for various causes.
