Twitter @angied7592. Long time lover of literature. Obsessed with adorable animals and coffee I spend my days playing video games with my brother and fiancee. My favorite genres are horror/ psychological thrillers and romance.
For anyone who doesn't live in the South, let me explain something to you, BBQ can make or break your town! It sounds dramatic, but it's true. Down here, good homemade barbecue is a staple of Southern pride and culture. Ever since the 19th century when the Spanish Conquistadors brought it over to the US, after first discovering it in the Carribean, it became a hit in the Southern US because of the large number of pigs that were available. From there, it just expanded rapidly. To find out more, please check out this article I found:
I Hate my Dad, I Love my Dad
I wrote this poem to both express my emotions about him but also to honor his memory. He passed away six years ago, and not a day goes by that I don't think about him.
Vaccine Diary (Day 4)
Dear Diary, It's me again, writing as per usual about my wacky experiences with the first shot of my covid-19 vaccine series. I wanted to start with a disclaimer about this journal because some folks that have read it believe that it's a fake account of symptoms meant to cause fear and discord amongst my fellow humans. Honestly, I don't see a motive behind keeping a detailed report of what is essentially the flu, but not everyone has common sense. I'm here to set the record straight: this is real, I have a vaccine card picture to prove my immunization, I had covid-19 back in February, which I recovered from reasonably well, so I know what I'm talking about. I have experienced some crazy flu symptoms from the shot, even if only moderate ones.
Vaccine Diary (Day 3)
Dear Diary, Today started like any typical day for me. I got home from my 11-7 job at 7:30; I went to the store to get some food for my lunch around 7:45 and was back home by 8:00. I ate my breakfast, drank my usual coffee, took my vitamins. Everything seemed to be fine, but then reality set in pretty heavy for me. One, today was my dad's bday, and he's no longer with us, and two, the shot is STILL kicking my butt up, down, and sideways. The symptoms continue to be a nuisance:
Vaccine Diary (Day 2)
Dear Diary, Here we go again. If you kept up with my posts, this would be the second journal entry on my vaccine adventures. Wow, so much excitement there. Not really. I despise it with a passion. Anyways, it's been about 24 hours, give or take, since my 1st round of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine. I'm here to break down my experience so far with it, what is happening, what isn't, etc. So far, here are my first-hand issues with it:
My Slice of Italy
I think it's important to support local businesses, especially right now during a global pandemic. By shopping and eating locally, you help the small companies trying to make ends meet, the mom and dads trying to leave a legacy for their children, the young entrepreneurs trying to make their mark on the world, and above all else, you support the American way of life. Yes, it's more convenient to buy from Walmart or eat at McDonald's, but those companies are rolling in money! They have so much income and lawyers it hurts. On the other hand, Ma Teller and her son Dale only have their sales till at the end of the day, after paying their suppliers, utilities, rent, business license fees, etc. And after all that, have to compete with these gigantic places that take up all the business! What a raw deal. So, whenever my fiancee and I go out somewhere, we try to find a local eatery.
Vaccine Diary (Day 1)
Dear Diary, Beginning April 15th, 2021, today basically, I will be receiving the covid-19 virus vaccination. The shot is provided free of cost, mainly due to me being an essential workerin the disease-ridden field of health care, but also because my place of employment gave me a priority letter. The clinic is set up for Walmart Pharmacy to administer it. And I will have to receive the second shot within 3 weeks of this one. Fingers, toes, and heart crossed on this bad boy.
Wine and Dine (18+ NSFW)
Another Friday night well spent. I was sitting on a metal bar stool in my favorite bar Reily’s, surrounded by fresh, delicious men to stare at. Life is great. I'm in my most alluring outfit; a ruby red halter top with no bra, stopping just shy of my navel, slim-cut black tights that hug my ass seductively, and my long, ash-blonde hair circled to perfection. Those college boys won't know what hit them. Oh yes, they will, a 38-year-old cougar on the hunt after a bitter divorce. I can do better than Paul, and I will.
