Jackie Bretz1 About Me! A slideshow about my life
Jackie Bretz2 Me! I am loud, fun, opinionated, stubborn, optimistic, energetic, crazy, friendly, and honest. I work at Hallmark, and I love chocolate, bubble baths, snooze buttons, channel surfing, and singing to the radio. I love Panera Bread and Caribou Coffee.
Jackie Bretz3 My parents My mom: we love to go out to breakfast, movies, shopping, coffee, laying out in the sun, and baking cookies. My dad: we like to pick on my mom, he takes me shopping when I beg him, and even if he is in the library studying (because he is also a student) he picks up his phone to talk to me. Even though he pretends that he is glad that I am at school, he doesn’t like the house quiet.
Jackie Bretz4 My brother My brother Danny is my best friend. We can hate each other and love each other at the same time, and we thrive on arguing and making fun of our parents.

Jackie Bretz7 Friends from home I love my friends from home. In high school we had our “group” of friends, and we were inseparable. I have known my best friend Carmen since kindergarten, and we do everything together. Us girls love to get together and watch movies, paint nails, and play games, but we also like hanging out with the guys bowling or to the movies. Even though we are all off at schools, some in other states, it is like nothing has changed when we get back home and get together.

Jackie Bretz 8 Friends from school I was fortunate enough to go to school with my friend Sara from home. She and I have been friends since 7 th grade, and her Tracy, Corrie and I are always together. I have lived with my roommate Danielle for two years, and we have met so many new friends just by walking around the floor. We hang out at the guys’ house, and we watch movies, sing karaoke, and play card games. I have also met a lot of people through the music department. Since we are all in music classes and ensembles together, we get to know each other very well. Butchie Andy Mike Jesse Kara Liz Sara Tracy Corrie Dani Jessie Lynde Ellen

We have family in different places around the country and it is a lot of fun driving or flying and spending time with my parents and brother. Mexico
Jackie Bretz 11 Chicago I was born in Chicago and I still love to visit downtown and spend the day shopping or just walking around Navy Pier. This past summer my friends and I went to the Taste of Chicago and had so much fun just walking around and experiencing the joys of the city. I love going to the Shedd Aquarium to see the fish or the Art Institute to admire the artwork or numerous individuals.
