Hi There! I’m Jessica, I live on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I’m 22 years old, turning 23 on December 24. I started this blog as a way to hold myself accountable to my goals, organization, and productivity. I love being able to share what works for me, and all things creative, with people like YOU!
You’re probably wondering why the name Zigzags & Zebras. I wanted to find something quirky and unique, and I loved the use of multiple ‘Z’s in my blog name. My last name starts with Z, and I wanted to pull that into my blog somehow!
I graduated my degree in psychology/religious studies about 2 years ago, and I found my self stuck in this seemingly endless loop of anxiety about imagined deadlines, and generally just stress about being an adult. Then I discovered bullet journaling. That, and the community, has honestly changed how I go into each day. I feel so much more calm, organized, and ready to take on everything that is thrown at me! I am currently working full-time, and I have decided to start this blog as a project on the side to meet like-minded people, and to hopefully show at least one person all that journaling has to offer.
If you are interested to hear more about how giving myself a chance to be creative has helped my anxiety, and you like freebies, sign up for my email list on the side of this page! I pinky promise that it’ll be worth it – and not to spam you 🙂
Besides working, blogging, and working on my journal I enjoy spending time outside, hiking, camping, and watching hockey. I am also an avid reader + netflixer. I am currently renting out the lower suite in my parents home while I struggle to pay off student debt, but that means I get to be nice and close to my dog & 2 cats. Bask in their cuteness below!
