FROM BROOKLYN: YOU JUST HAVE TO DIG

FROM BROOKLYN: YOU JUST HAVE TO DIG
Share the goods

I’m living in an AirBnB in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, where my feelings toward the area resemble how I once felt about someone I worked with – forever ago.

There’s good inside. You just have to dig.

There’s a bath mat inside the shower and I went to move it out of the shower, but when I lifted it up, I saw things…I saw really gross things.

But I’m grateful to be living in Brooklyn and on this adventure and mostly for everything I still have in life, which may be just enough to fill only two suitcases, but it’s good enough.

I’m Jen Glantz. I’ve been a published writer for over 13 years, spilling my words into magazines (ranging from style to scuba diving), newspapers, websites and even this one time, a speech, for someone who didn’t speak a word of English. What drives my words, my site, my writing, is the power of relating to people. I find that many people, especially young girls, feel so alone and quite often they feel embarrassed. I want to shatter those feelings! I want them to read what I write and understand that it’s okay to be a little outside of the box, but most importantly, that it is okay to just be who they are.
