I planned on being a writer, but it seems like I spend all of my time doing instead of writing.
Annie Dillard said, "How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives,"
so why not write about what I'm doing?
Angelina Oberdan is a writer with an MFA, and has published an assortment of the following poetry, book reviews, academic essays and presentations, introductions, guest blogs, and other freelance projects. She is also an English Instructor at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC where she teaches developmental reading/English courses and English composition. And she adjuncts at Southern New Hampshire University because she loves teaching and working with their online students. Angelina also reads poetry for EMRYS, writes reviews for Friends of Atticus, and has experience in editing, marketing, and direct sales for Chloe + Isabel.
Angelina is also an athlete. It happened suddenly. In 2013, she rejoined the world of swimming, started to enjoy running, and got back on her mountain bike. Major accomplishments include three half marathons and four long distance open water swims. She's actually a faster swimmer now than she ever was when she played water polo in high school and in college!
What else? She'd rather have a glass of wine with friends or family than go to any club, ever. She loves clothes (Stitch Fix!) and jewelry (Chloe + Isabel), but she loves being comfortable and low maintenance even more. She loves fundraisers and community service and baby animals. (Who doesn't!?)
Angelina has one black cat named Trouble who was born in the attic of Clemson's infamous Esso Club. She also has two Carolina Dogs/American Dingoes: Layla and Finley. She loves to cook, adventure, and is ever grateful for all her opportunities.
