Does the fact that I can’t figure out how to describe myself speak volumes about my lack of identity? Did I lose it? Did I ever have one to begin with? Or, am I ashamed of it because at 34, I have no job, no kids, and no clue as to whether I am going to have a “good day or a bad day” because if I’m not struggling with depression, I am battling the symptoms of a brain tumor.

                       Occupation: NONE

Was I more aware of my identity when I was high school English teacher? 

Will I develop a new identity as I attempt to build my business as a graphic designer and interior decorator.

                      Name:  JEANETTE LEHMANN

               Occupation:  CREATIVE CONSULTANT


Will I develop a second online identity as a blogger who writes things online that she would never have the guts to say out loud? Will I offend someone with my writing. Will anyone even read it? What if I become famous? What if my mom reads this? Should I make up a pseudonym and invent a bio for the sake of anonymity? Why am I making this so hard?

My name is Jeanette, and this is my first blog.

Is that way too basic?

Jeanette Lehmann is a creative…

No, I hate writing in third person.

Hi. I’m Jeanette, a creative thinker, designer and writer who struggles with the desire to write honestly and the desire to not offend, and who, obviously, spends way too much time in my own head. 

I guess that’s good enough for now. I can always rewrite it later.
