OneChicklette aka @1chicklette is me, Jennifer. This is my Facebook page (I’d love it if you liked it) and here I am on YouTube.
I live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and work in Manhattan. Like most bloggers, I don’t talk about work much, but I can tell you that I have a fun career in sales and marketing that keeps me
running flying–I travel a LOT!
I haven’t always lived in NYC. Nope. Originally I was a small town girl, growing up outside of Scranton (JEALOUS?!). I’m an only child. I was a picky eater. I have always loved sleep.
In high school, I was a cheerleader with big, big hair.
For college, I went to Cornell. I met a guy and that became a funny story. After graduation – which was a minor miracle – I moved to NYC.
I was in the city on 9/11 and moved to DC for a job (completely against my will, but it had to be done). Eventually I made friends and I even fell in love. But some things aren’t meant to last forever.
In 2011, I moved back to my beloved New York City. The apartment hunt was brutal but, time heals.
If you’re still reading this, you’re a masochist. And I love you.
Even more about me::
I love NYC, naps, my wacky family, Twitter, telling stories, hanging out with other people’s children and then giving them back, drinking iced lattes and micheladas and Manhattans (separately), watching The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, writing, flossing my teeth (weirdo), reading, eating (particularly cheese) and dissecting celebrity blind vices.
I hate humidity, sitting in traffic, spelling and grammar errors, getting poked on the subway, people asking me why I’m not married, hangovers, the phrase “obsessed” when you mean you love something, sweating, cucumbers, meetings before 10 am, shrimp and sleep deprivation.
To call me clumsy is a massive understatement. By the time I was thirteen, I’d suffered at least three concussions which means my seventh decade will probably be…blurry. I have never, ever played basketball, but know in my heart that I would have been an awesome hockey player (seriously!) had I ever tried. I studied ballet for about fourteen years and piano for ten.
Once in a while, I post something really personal. These are some of those posts.
About the loss of my wonderful father (July 20, 2015)
A Mother and A Daughter (March 3, 2013)
Two Hours in the Car with Dad (August 5, 2013)
Why I Don’t Enjoy Christmas (December 24, 2011)
No Dogs Allowed (May 28, 2013)
Been Caught Stealing (July 15, 2013)
Summer of Suck 2.0 (August 26, 2016)
Sometimes I try to be funny.
Cool thing about me: I can sleep in MRIs — oh, and I have a tumor (September 14, 2015)
“Isn’t it terrible about Chechnya?” (April 13, 2013)

Good job on the blog! I’m an NYC chick-blogger too:)
Also, just nominated you for the Awesome Blog Content Award:) Check out my site for details!
I lived in Brooklyn and worked in Manhattan, too! Fun times – NYC is my favorite city (partly because I was born there). Your job sounds like a lot of fun! And I’m enjoying your blog – thank you for visiting mine!
Thanks! I’m enjoying yours also.
I’ve never met a New Yorker I didn’t want to punch in their genitalia. I look forward to you changing that.
Thanks for starting my day with a chuckle. I hope I don’t join that club!
“I hate humidity, sitting in traffic” Yep, I get that.. Great blog, thanks for the laffs 🙂
Thank YOU for reading!
Hi darling! I nominated you for one lovely blog award, or as I like to call it – one lovely spam award 🙂
And now I love you even more : )
I have no idea how ya found me or what ya liked about my page, but I do know that there’s a lot to like here. Keep up the good fight!
Thanks! You also.
Can’t say I’ve ever met anyone who tweets as much as you too – I’d add you but I feel like my feed is already impossible to keep up with as is. I almost need a personal assistant at times!
It’s true: I tweet a lot. But it comes in bursts like tonight (Bachelorette finale madness).
Just wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed reading your blog…thanks..Cheryl
Thank you so much! I hope you keep coming back.
Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my About page! I checked out your blog and it’s very funny, so I will be follwing! Cheers!
Thank you so much! Hope you like what you read. 🙂
Ballet for 14 years! I only went to ballet for two years. Still really love to dance, but I couldn’t muster up the determination for practice. I was more of a writer and doodler when I was younger.
It’s lovely to meet you!
And you as well.
Omg I could’ve been an awesome hockey player too!!! I love your love and hate paragraphs- so succinct! Can’t wait to read your posts. And hello from Switzerland!
Hello back! Thanks for coming by. I enjoy your blog.
I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award!
If you accept check it out http://bibliojesso.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/the-liebster-award-ive-been-nominated/
Appreciate your stopping by my place. I like flossing, have written a book you’ll love and will change the course of history, and have to tell you that, if you like cheese, Quebec is where it’s at.
Oh, I won’t ask you why you’re not married. I have a cousin whose upcoming Ph.D. thesis in math / number theory goes into Nobel Prize territory. So, I will ask you why you haven’t married to my cousin yet?
Ha! I’m amused. Thanks for coming by yourself.
Çheers, Chicklette. BTW, semi-serious about the cousin. My Aunt may be hunting you as we speak. };-)>
Let me know if you ever want to visit Ottawa.
😉 I get to Toronto sometimes
Have in-laws there. Yankees – Jays game?
You were a cute little human, Chiclette!
Why thank you!
I do love your blog.
You do? Thanks so much!
You know I do.
And… yer welcome!
Hey Jen, I felt like I wanted to tag you in something cool. If you like. I dug it. — Mark
