Hello there! Welcome to my blog! My name is Angie and I've been blogging/journaling online under various usernames since the LiveJournal days (1999 and onward...ugh, that ages me.) I like to document my life, I like to take photos, and I like the friendships and conversations blogs create with people from all around the world--connections that otherwise would never happen. So while my blog may not be producing income, I do it for the reasons listed above.
I am an adolescent psych nurse (BSN, RN) at my local Children's Hospital and former art school graduate (BFA), living in Columbus, Ohio. I have two cats, Mona and Dorian, who are very photogenic and are featured regularly on this blog and my various social medias like my Instagram.
This blog kind of tries to encompass everything I like so that's why I made the sections: BLOG, BOOK REVIEWS, and JOURNALS. My blog shares the daily gist of my life, the book reviews is pretty self explanatory and is cross-posted to my goodreads account, and the journals tab holds all my talk about stationery.
Random bits about me: I'm a vegetarian, I love to read, I'm left-handed, my personality type is ISTJ, I'm an atheist, I don't want children, I'm a candle and incense junkie, I like to get tattoos and am currently covering my right arm in pretty images, I love mid-century modern design, I'll always order the latest Kindle from Amazon, I'm Italian but usually hate Italian food (I love Indian and Mexican food), Ginkgo trees are my favorite--especially in the autumn, Six Feet Under is my favorite TV show and The Shining is my favorite film, I absolutely hate the smell of basil and most herbs, and I'm definitely a homebody.
Feel free to bookmark, read along, and connect.
