About Me

Hi, my name is Angela and welcome to my blog. This is a place where I write about my life in an honest and open way.

I am 36 years old, single, and a Christian. God gave me a heart to work with children and so I spend my day teaching kindergarten. It is my fourth year teaching and although it is hard I love it. I currently go to a college for my BA in Elementary Education which keeps me busy. Between work and school there is not much time left but I enjoy serving and helping others, watching netflix, or reading a good book.

27K Words in 13 Days

I thought I should update here but as I open this up to write I realize not much has changed. I am writing my novel and that is going well. I think today's goal was 24K and I hit 27K today. The last section I wrote today I am not very happy with. If I leave it then I loose out on a whole story line and I really think that to a reader they will feel like it is out of no where. I really need to stretch the idea back into the whole sub plot I had before. But that means moving those words away and possibly not using them again. Though I recommend to others that they keep a delete folder so they still count the words so why shouldn't I do the same thing.

School is going well though I haven't done school work at all Monday or Tuesday and it is driving me a little crazy. I am worried I am falling behind. I have a lot of things due and I need to stop putting off the work. Usually I spend Monday morning on homework but the Phoenix Koman foundation needed help with data entry so I volunteered for several hours to help out on Monday. It was boring but I helped get a lot of work done so that is good.

This evening I ditched my Celebrate Recovery meeting. I have been feeling some frustrations with my group lately and I need to just make a decision about it. So I should have done homework but instead I watched a couple of Christian movies I found on Netflix. I really like the movie "The Encounter," actually I own it I like it so much. So I was flipping through and they have a type sequel called "The Encounter: Lost Paradise." I think I like the first one better but they are both really good. Then I watched "Mark" about hijackers on a plane and included the rapture and the universal chip that will be the mark from satan. It was okay, I wouldn't see it again but I am glad I watched it.

I have been reading the books I mentioned in the last post. I started with "First Kiss." I had read this one before and I liked it just as much the second time. A book I would definitely recommend. Next I started "Marriable." It turned out to be the Christian version of the rules. It was jam packed full of crazy games to play, not what I am looking for. I made it about halfway before I couldn't take it anymore. I am currently reading "Am I the One?" This is a good one. It has lots of tips and information. I am reading it slower so I can really focus on what each chapter has to say. I wanted to supplement my reading time with something else so I am also reading "Loving People." This was not in the stack but a book I kept with these. Due to some of my past I know that I struggle with even the idea of love. I only just started this but hopefully it will provide me a better understanding of love and how to love people.

The dryer just went off which mean my last load of laundry is finally done. I am going to fold it and head to bed. Tomorrow is going to be another long day, though everyday seems to be this month.
