You always go into writing an About Me page, thinking you’ll be quirky, sarcastic and amazing, but the truth is, it never really turns out that way.
Welcome to my hell.
I’m Angie, a early-thirties, sarcastic, and sometimes brutally honest woman. I have been married to my husband, Robby1 for 9 years and together we have managed to acquire 5 cats and 2 dogs, though arguably we could say they acquired us.
We’ve had our fair amount of struggles, unlike any other couple, and we most recently had to come to terms with a diagnosis of infertility in December 2013; though admittedly, the signs had always been there. Denial is a good friend of mine. We go out for drinks… often.
We spent the first half of 2015 going through treatments in an attempt to get pregnant and after one failed cycle that resulted in a chemical pregnancy, in July of 2015 we managed to unlock the pregnancy achievement, and welcomed our fraternal boy and girl twins, Temperance2 and Tiberius3 into the world via vaginal birth in February 2016.
Who Am I?
I’m a design-enthusiast, namely web and interior, animal lover that enjoys competition, challenges and provocative discussions. I take interest in playing video games, experimenting in the kitchen, photography, blogging irregularly, reading, organization and planning just to name a few.
I am a believer in the whimsical, the logical, and the practical. I display acts of emotion when I feel it’s necessary but often the emotions I portray aren’t the emotions I necessarily feel. Few people truly know the inner workings of my mind, though I make a great show of acting as if they do.
I’ve been told by many that I’m a compassionate, understanding, and caring individual. I don’t necessarily agree. Often times, my actions and reactions are based on what logic dictates; if someone is in need, logic dictates if I can help then I should, likewise if someone makes poor decisions, well, Darwinism exist for a reason, right?
I have the uncanny ability of caring too much or not caring at all. I give second chances, far too often, and far too easily, but once you’ve burned the bridge between us, there is no going back. You’re either in or you’re out. There is no in between.
I don’t hold grudges but I do not forget, and my trust is the worst thing to lose, because the chances of restoring it is akin to finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.
introvert ambivert, though I slide more towards the introvert side of that scale, and the longer you know me, the more you come to find, I have a very low tolerance for society.
I am not a people person and often limit my interactions with individuals who have similar interests or those I deem interesting. I do not participate in small talk and often only lend my voice to a conversation when something of interest pops up. This can lead to some awkward situations because while many feel the need to fill the silence, I’m simply more inclined to walk away or smile, and feign interest, whilst wishing for your untimely demise.
I classify myself as a geek and I take immense pleasure in learning about topics I deem interesting4. I enjoy gaming, because it serves as a great escape and in some cases, a great tool for anger management, though admittedly I am no longer playing as often as I’d like.
I believe in a higher power5, science, and the power of caffeine.
I often toe the line between sociopath and homicidal tendencies.
Born for Leaving
I’m a really big dork… and you’ll probably love me… well, maybe.
