We all know Jessica. But, how well do we really know Jessica? (Get your minds out of the gutter, kids.)
We asked the captain of Team Griffin to delve a bit deeper into what makes her tick:
On...her personality: Hmm. I would describe my personality as intense and sensitive. Many other people have described me that way as well. Tom, when he first met me said he thought I was an "ice queen." This shocked me because my self-image is one of a total sensitive care bear. I guess when the cameras go on, part of me hides and I become the assistant vs. being just me. Not to say I'm fake; I just become more reserved and I try to just focus on doing my job.
On...her job: What do I think of my job now...I'm kind of just used to my job now. It's just a routine I do everyday. I don't think about it as much as I used to. I don't panic about it as much as I used to. I used to worry about doing something wrong. Now I'm comfortable and confident to know that if something happens here and there I'll be able to handle it. So I dunno it's kind of a family setting here and I enjoy coming to work everyday.
On...the little things: I get really excited about small things in life. In the past I have had very stern pet peeves that drive me up the wall. For example, I absolutely hate the sound of people chewing/smacking their gum, or hearing people swallow. It's like nails on a chalk board for me. I can't touch certain fabrics with out shuttering, I can't sleep without noise or fan or A/C and I have multiple pillows in bed with me at all times. I build a fort around me when I sleep. For some reason it makes me feel safe. I guess it's true what they say about the kid in us never really growing up completely.
Anything else? Also, I'm a pack rat. I keep random stuff for the nostalgic feeling. Part of my summer goal is to get rid of a bunch of stuff. It helps to just purge once in a while, plus you come across treasures you forgot you had or you find stuff and wonder, "Why the hell do I still have this?" It's a good, relaxing way to get organized, plus you can pass on stuff to friends or to Goodwill. One man's trash is another mans treasure!
