Hi, I'm Angela. I'm a poet and I work various odd jobs at night to keep the lights on. I'm currently based in New Orleans, Louisiana. My friends outside 'The Big Easy' often ask what to do and where to go when they get here. I'm often overwhelmed by this question because there are seemingly endless options. Inspired to create a list, I've gone all out and created this space instead.
Hopefully this blog will be much less pretentious than it sounds. I love traveling and not just the arrival at a new destination. I love the in-betweens of old and new. I love reading of every sort, really. My parents used books as a punishment as a child -- they would take them away from me. I love television & movies. I'm one of those people that doesn't mind spoilers because I think that if a story is told correctly the journey should marinate the punchline. And honestly, who doesn't love food? These are my favorite mediums in which to be told stories. I consider myself a story collector. In this space I will write about certain experiences with all of these different mediums. I hope to never have to give critique but if such a time arrives I hope I can give it in such a way that would encourage a dear friend to be better.
