Hello, my name is Angie. I am a 35-year-old mom of twins that dabbles in web design & photography who also enjoys gaming, writing, music & art.
I love to express myself through creativity 🎨. Whether it’s web design and development 💻, photography 📸 , writing 📓 or music 🎤 , the ability to express myself, in whatever form I so choose, is extremely important to me. I haven’t had the easiest life, though I’m sure there are others who have had worse, so I am drawn to and driven to speak up for others who may not have the means or the courage to do it themselves ⚔️.
In February of 2016, after 10 years of suffering from undiagnosed infertility and after a failed IVF cycle, I had the greatest gift of giving birth to my children, Temperance1Tempe and Tiberius2Ty. I can honestly say that their births are the best things that have and will ever happen to me. I spent a large majority of my life feeling as if I was never good enough. Relationships I formed were unhealthy, destructive and assuredly not meant to last. If anyone had stopped to ask me what my purpose was in life, I’d have shrugged because the thought of answering was too much for me to even fathom.
The birth of my children changed all that. They brought peace to the chaos in my mind and provided me with a fierce purpose to not only love them for everything they are and everything they will eventually become but to protect them through the hurts in this world and the darkness that they’re sure to, despite my attempts to thwart it, eventually encounter. Becoming a mom is the best thing that has happened to me but even more than that, it’s the most important job I’ve ever and will ever have.
Recently, I’ve had to come to terms with the knowledge that I suffer from mental illness. It wasn’t easy to admit and it took several months of crippling depression and anxiety for me to come to terms with my illness and seek help, but I did for the sake of my children. Now, I try to do my best to be a voice for the people in the shadows. The ones who were like me, afraid to speak out in fear of appearing weak, or burying the pain just to make it through another day. I am a big supporter of seeking treatment and for being there as a resource for anyone who may not feel like they’re quite ready to seek help.
Currently, I am studying to complete a 🎓Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Data Management/Data Analytics. I have always been interested in technology and gadgets; plus given the current state of the world, I feel that technology is the field that’s likely to expand the most as we move into the future. As I have grown older, I have found that I stepped away from a lot of my interests and I hope that this place will allow me to rekindle some of the passion that’s been lost or at the very least, provide a place for me to finally rest my head.
