Hi, I'm Angela and I have a confession to make...I'm a virgin to blogging. I've never done this before and it scares the pa-doo-di out of me. I have a second confession, I have A LOT of insecurities about everything, even writing. Stupid, I know, but it's held me back. Sooo, I'm giving myself a pass and not let my fear of spelling, punctuation and grammar stop me from writing. Who knows, maybe I'll get better at it.
Here is my strange self-analogy, I'm a lot like a 7 yr. old mid-size sedan Mercedes, charcoal-gray or black, but definitely a metallic for sure. From a distance, she looks great for her age and has all the upgraded bells and whistles. Upon closer inspection, you notice she may have been in a few wrecks and the mileage is pretty-darn high. Who cares! She’s pretty, the price is right and those scratched and dents can be buffed out, right? Well that’s me!
I'm a graphic designer by trade and heart. Anyone who knows me, knows how passionate I am about design and fonts, but I can be a bit coo-coo. I'm that crazy person who may meow at you instead of saying hello. I love to laugh, but I was raised not to. Twisted…I know, but I love to see the funny-side of everything. I'm also an emotional wreck, probably because of a hormonal imbalance. I literally cry at everything; movies, commercials and anything involving the unexpected friendship between two animals.
So that's who I am, now let’s get to why I am writing this blog. I feel like I’ve secretly always wanted to write, but never felt confident enough to try. I’m a true self doubter in my ability. This journey has given me the confidence to open this laptop and set these keys on fire. Picture in your head, Jim Carey in the movie Mask with that big toothy grin saying, “S-M-O-K-I-N”! that’s me right now. I’m excited to write about my decision to change my insecurities, habits, health and mental well-being. Basically, I'm lifting the hood and fixing what's wrong because I can't afford a new car! Sooo, with my great sense of humor, I'm going to blog about everything - the good, the bad and definitely the ugly.
