Beware! Schrute farms sells rotten beets.

What are ten things that no one knows about you, and that you will not willingly tell anyone about?

1. I had an imaginary friend named Edward when I was a little girl. He used to give me all my ideas for the pranks I played on Jim. Talking to him I mean, which was talking to myself really.

2. Sometimes life gets really hard and I want to go back to LA and go back to a world where nobody cared if you destroyed yourself from the inside out. It's a lot easier to fall into oblivion than to face reality.

3. I wrote a book. It's awful and I'd never show it to anyone.

4. I burned every piece of artwork I'd ever done while high even though some of them were probably the most brilliant shit I'd ever done.

5. I have a will. My estate is split between my parents, my brothers, Scott and Heather (for college).

6. I love working at Dunder Mifflin. Shhh.

7. I had an abortion when I was twenty years old. I got pregnant and school and work were insane and I knew that I couldn't handle it so I never told anyone and I got it; sometimes I wonder what it would have been like if I hadn't.

8. I think Michael is sweet. I know Scott has issues with the whole thing but he really tries and maybe he tries so hard.

9. I've had a tattoo removed - I'm not telling what or where.

10. I hated Scranton when I first left. I had to get out of there. The town was suffocating me so much that I felt like I could scream.

Do you have faith?

I don't know if I have faith in some ominous being that is suppose to put our lives in motion. I also don't know if I can believe that saying that everything happens for a reason - or that God has a plan. There is just too much bad that happens. And I get that people are the cause of most of the pain in the world - people do the bad things and make the bad choices but I just can't believe in some being that is suppose to be all powerful who allows things to happen.

I do have faith in some people though. Like My brother. Jim is probably the best person I know. He may not have all the answers and he may do stupid things sometimes but he does what he thinks is best. Even his pranks on Dwight? I mean yeah they're for his entertainment but what would Dwight do without Jim around to give him that attention? It's a symbiotic relationship.

Scott. I have faith in Scott too. He's just straight forward and beautiful. When I'm with him I just feel - good. It's simple and I can't get enough of it. We spent Christmas together - well it was me, him, Heather and Jessica which was ... interesting to say the least. Jessica doesn't like me too much from what I can tell but I think it has more to do with Heather liking me than Scott being with me. We still aren't defining what we are but Heather calls me his girlfriend.

I have faith in Michael. Which might sound weird but even though the man is completely oblivious and insulting - he always does what he thinks is right. His heart is in the right place and he tries his hardest to make things good for the people around him (except Toby). He's a good man - through all his flaws.

I have Faith in Pam too. For a lot of reasons. Similar to all these other ones. Pam is the best sister in law in the world.

We're spending New Years with my brother and Pam. They're having a small party. Scott's afraid that Michael's going to show up spouting off about father/son bonding again but I told him I'd wear something short and we'd make our own party if he wanted. I think he's convinced.

What makes your life complicated?

The point of leaving LA and moving back to Scranton was to help uncomplicate my life. I sold the majority of my shares in my company and bought a house in my hometown. I got close to my brother again and let my mom take as much care of me as she wanted. I don't really admit to my drug problem openly and I barely drink. Life is always complicated though. You can't get away from those things that fucked you up in your past. I tried to accept my life and move on and for the most part that's worked.

The things that complicate my life now is the situation with Michael. Well the situation with Michael and Scott. Scott who refuses to acknowledge Michael as his father (not that i blame him) and therefore Michael tries to get me to talk to my "man" as Michael calls him. Scott and I have no name for what we are. He knows my stance on marriage and life and I'm pretty sure we mesh in that respect. Heather seems to adore me (god knows why) and Scott's been spending more time at my place than his own. It's not complicated to us but apparently that's exactly how Jim and Pam describe us. Anyway, the point is that Michael thinks we're family now. He says Scott and I are practically married (ha right) and since Jim and Pam are married (thanks to him in his eyes) we're in laws. I tried explaining it all to him once but it's just no use.

To keep Michael from bugging Scott (because really Scott is stubborn and he needs time to ever accept the man as his father) I just let him bounce all these ideas off me (and Jim helps too sometimes) and then I try to let him down easily and talk him out of it.

At least that's about as complicated as my life gets these days. It's a big improvement over my life in LA. I'm a lot happier now.

A year goes by
And I can't talk about it

The times weren't right
And I couldn't talk about it

Jenny doesn't have a problem admitting that she had a drug problem. She's open about most things. She thinks she's an open book even though her brother and Scott and everyone seem to think she's a mystery. Scott always tells her that he never knows what she'll do next. That's a good thing to him though so it's never really been a complaint.

They don't talk about things like their pasts. That might sound odd to most people. It's not as though they don't talk but they just don't talk about everything over and over again.

Despite Jenny's openness, she doesn't like to talk about what led her to rock bottom. The despair, how her body started eating itself from lack of nourishment and she ended up in the hospital for nearly a month before she was ever able to make it to rehab. How she scared her family into not visiting, the only one not listening to her being her mother. She doesn't like to remember the state of mind she was in when she lived in LA those last couple of years.

She doesn't like the desperation. How utterly out of control of herself and her life she had gotten. Or how long it had taken her to just let go of the need for control she had. How hard it was to adopt this new way of looking at the world and herself.

She doesn't like to think about any of that but she knows that Scott knows. She doesn't even have to tell him, it's like he can see it in the lines of her face or the curve of her waist, still just a little smaller than it should be despite her more than healthy appetite these days.

She feels like it's healthy to leave the past behind her. Maybe she's wrong because she can't talk about it. She doesn't want to.

TEN things you learned as child.

1. You can put anything in Jell-O.

2. Brothers are good for scaring off bullies.

3. Barbie's and GI-Joe's do not mix, especially when put in Jell-O.

4. Parents enjoy dressing their children up in cheerleading uniforms of the football team they support. Because its "so cute".

5. Transformers are way cooler than My Little Pony.

6. Boys are stupid.

7. If you step up on the counter in the kitchen you can reach the cookie jar without Jim's help.

8. Blaming your older brother for everything that happens (like things breaking and mud tracks in the house) works when you're tiny and cute.

9. Drawing on the walls is not acceptable according to mom but dad says they shouldn't hinder your artistic talents. So finger panting the walls of your room is the coolest thing.

10. You can only walk around shirtless and in nothing but your panties until a certain age before people start looking strangely.

If you wrote a book what kind would it be? Fiction? Non-fiction? Who would the main character be? Tell us about the book you've never written.

Actually, I was asked to write a book. Weird right? Apparently my story of starting a business so young and the drug use and school and all my insanity in LA would make for a good best seller.

The thing is I wouldn’t write a book. I wouldn’t let my story be told. I don’t want to some little girl reading about my life and thinking they could do what I did. It was the worst thing in the world for me. It changed me, I mean it fucking drove me to drug use like I’m a model who needs heroine to get by everyday. I’m lucky the track marks faded enough so that nobody can really see them unless they’re looking.

Scott saw them, I know he did but he didn’t ask about them. Which isn’t a surprise. He’ll ask one day, probably after we have sex. Cause we all know that’s going to happen. My brother gets these looks whenever Scott and I are hanging out in the break room, like I’m fifteen and he needs to scare off the guys I’m interested in because clearly all boys are thinking about sex. My poor brother. Like guys are the only ones who are thinking about sex.

Anyways, I wouldn’t write a book. I’m an artist anyway not a writer. I draw, that’s the way I get things out of my system.
