893464_10151371116097129_92960570_oI am Tammy Jaques: a lawyer, an advocate, a mother, a vegetarian, an artistic soul, a lover of good music.  I love road trips, the South, craft beer,tattoos, cats, and crochet.  I am very good at word games, sarcasm, caustic humor, and writing flowing letters of veiled scorn.  Sometimes, I am downright witty.  I typically say too much and am often overly amused with myself.   I can be more fun than a barrel of monkeys, BUT …

I am petulant.


[pech-uh-luhnt]  adjective

Moved to or showing sudden, impatient irritation, especially over some trifling annoyance: a petulant toss of the head.

I am malcontent.



1. not satisfied or content with currently prevailing conditions or circumstances.

2. dissatisfied with the existing government, administration, system, etc.

It is not that I want to be either petulant or malcontent.  I want to be happy: joyous, delighted, content.  And I can be … for extremely short periods of time.  However, since birth (just ask my parents), I have experienced difficulty in sleeping more than 4 hours in any given night.  As a result, I ponder, ruminate, plot, scheme, and generally keep myself worked into a tizzy about the latest injustice.

I went to law school to channel my disquietude, but alas, I am not appeased.  As a result, I am a dreamer, searching for my next adventure.  I consider myself to be a follower of Christ but I will readily admit, I struggle with faith.  Probably a result of all of that contemplation.

I hope this blog will serve to help me align what I am with who I want to be.  But certainly, there will be many days where it is just pictures of my cat in cute outfits … because that is who I am.
