If you’ve stumbled across this website and you’re curious to find out more about the slightly unhinged author then lower your expectations. My life story isn’t really that interesting and self promotion is definitely not my strong suit, so feel free to ‘back arrow’ at any time.
After graduating from uni I spent ten years forging a career in marketing and advertising and then pressed pause on that to spend the next 20 years in domestic pit alley as support crew for a husband and two kids across three states and two countries. More recently, I lost my mum, got divorced and realised that my full time mothering days were nearing an end. “Wohoo” I hear you all say in unison … finally some “me time.” Yep … great in theory, until I actually started contemplating what that future might look like. How on earth was this next chapter going to play out? All of a sudden I’m knocking on the door of 50 with no real plan for the next 50 years. How did I, (a self confessed anal, control freak virgoan) let that happen? I was so busy planning and supporting everyone else that I forgot to make a plan for myself. Oops.
So, I’m in the process of formulating a plan and the ramblings that follow are … well just that … me downloading all the nutty thoughts that fill my head. Writing (and the odd espresso martini) is my preferred form of therapy. Converting my jumbled thoughts into words allows me to close a few of the tabs that are clogging my mental bandwidth. So, don’t be expecting any highbrow commentary. My stories are quite literally a verbal dumping ground that help me make sense of my loopy life. So. lower your expectations and enjoy a laugh at my expense.
Why ‘Ang I am’? I have always been a huge fan of Dr Seuss. His fantastical tales and illustrations of far away places captured my imagination as a child and continue to do so today. His quotes are awesome .. simple and poignant without trying too hard. So … Ang I am pays homage to my fave Dr Seuss character ‘Sam I Am’ … he’s persistent, adventurous and a bit cheeky. You be the judge!
