About


My name is Jessica, and I am the owner of The Second Thought. I am a 22-year-old girl from a small hamlet in Central New York, who just recently graduated from SUNY Purchase with a B.A. in Biology. I am currently preparing my medical school applications and studying for the MCAT. I am also a cashier at a local grocery store and a volunteer patient advocate/Cath Lab waiting room attendant at the local hospital. I have a HUGE range of interests that can barely be summed up on this one page. I have a strong passion for reading and writing and hope to someday complete my first novel. I spend most of my nights reading my Kindle into the wee hours, when I should be sleeping. I love science fiction, paranormal, and magic-related books. Some of my favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, and Oscar Wilde. Some of my favorite books are Never Let me Go, Harry Potter, The Picture of Dorian Grey, and Choke. You can find what I am currently reading on my GoodReads account! I also enjoy an abundance of television and movies, which are too long to list here. Being that I am a scientist at heart, I am also a nerd, and enjoy all things that nerds enjoy, such as video-games, learning, all things computers, and scientific papers. Another one of my interests are animals! I have two cats (Tyger and Jewel) and a Cocker Spaniel/Pomeranian mix named Icarus. They are extremely spoiled, and you will likely see more of them in my posts. If I had it my way, I would have a separate house with every kind of animal possible, and I would own and fund a million animal shelters. I toyed with the idea of becoming a Vet, but I don't think I would have the heart to put an animal down. My next biggest interest is fashion. For as long as I can remember, I have loved the art of makeup and style. I have a huge inventory of makeup and many looks that I can't wait to share. I have always enjoyed helping others with application, and hope someday to have time to do some freelance makeup work. I spend many days at Ulta Beauty and Sally Beauty Supply, as well as the mall. I love jewelry, nail polish, accessories, dresses, and hair products that can tame my unruly waves. One of my last (but not final) interests is a new addition -- to live a more green, fit lifestyle. I am currently in The Biggest Loser competition at work, and just getting into the swing of the gym. I love to learn about new ways to diet effectively, and new ways to improve my health and lifestyle overall.


This blog was created with the intention of expressing my interests with fellow reading/writing, animal, fashion, beauty, and fitness fans. I am new to the couponing scene, but I enjoy finding deals and freebies to share with the world. This is one outlet where I can ramble, and hopefully find other like-minded ramblers to connect with. I have so much to say, and it seems like there are never enough hours in the day to start. :) If for any reason you wish to contact me, please email jessicapeeling@yahoo.com. For any businesses or Etsy owners -- I am more than happy to review your products. I even review children's products, as my mother works at a Pre-K where I occasionally volunteer.

Thanks for reading!!
