Well, hello there! Welcome to Sincerely Angela !
Yes, my real name is Angela. Here's a little bit of information about me and my blog:
I started blogging in 2010 and started with a blog all about becoming a runner. I used it for a few months and realized I wanted to about more than just running. So, I started a blog called "Cast and Catch" on June 7th, 2010. I kept that blog title for about two years and decided it was time to change. The name was hard to say and it didn't represent me as much anymore. I hemmed, hawwed, mulled and bugged my friends on how to rename my new blog. I probably drove them crazy but hopefully they got some amusement from it.
Eventually, on one tired morning on March 1st, 2012 it finally dawned on me.... Sincerely Angela. I wasn't sure how I felt about using my name but I was stuck on the word sincerely. That's just who I am. I'm a lot of things but I am sincere, or I try to be in every way possible.
So, what do I write about? All kinds of things. Primarily I share pictures and chatter about my personal life (I kept journals until my freshman year of college so this is journaling for me -- with discretion I do not share every detail of my life!). I'm currently a graduate student at Pacific University. I will receive my Master's of Education degree in December along with two endorsements: Reading and English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). From this educational experience I have learned that I am very passionate about teaching English Language Learners and hope to work with them someday soon. In addition, I am passionate about providing all children with the best education possible so that is something I discuss on here. I think it's important to be an advocate for children while being professional at the same time. Children need a voice -- who else is going to fight for their needs?
I substitute in a public school district and tutor two nights per week. Going to school and working two jobs keeps me busy!
Along with educational topics I love following fashion blogs, posting outfit inspiration pictures and pictures of my own outfits. I also am a big fan of Kate Middleton. Roll your eyes all you want but I love that she acts like a lady, dresses with style and class, and advocates for children. ;-)
Some quick facts:
- I am a natural strawberry blonde/ redhead
- I don't follow any particular theology but I do believe in Jesus and His Word is all I need
- I love the simplicity movement and try to integrate into my life
- In my mid 20's
- Currently living at home with my mom and we're going to grow a garden this summer!
- I think it is important to use natural products/foods when and where possible
- I have two kitties that are like night and day (they also look like it too- one is big & orange and the other is black & white)
I always enjoy meeting new people and learning new things. Wishing all of you the very best :)
