I am a quiet person! I was not always that way, but life has changed me and I hope for the better! Nevertheless, I thought that keeping a blog might be an outlet to the world!
I plan to blog about everyday things and about my Catholic Faith, which I can’t really separate from everyday things or my job and my family. Yes, I am totally dedicated to my Faith, but I am very lay and don’t really buy into being too clerical in my approach to blogging. I want to take a slightly different angle and hopefully prove to my readers that I am a normal person along the way!
I am going to keep it anonymous and not talk too much about identifying things, save that I am in my mid- (or late, depending) 20s, a woman, and I am British. I have a profession which I love and I am single and happy about that. I have a busy life, with lots of hobbies. I am not sure which I will tell you about because I am so involved with people and friends and don’t want to be too identifiable! I will also struggle to not talk about the interesting things that happen in my line of work! Maybe with time I’ll learn not to be so shy.
I am going to try to write something useful, so we shall see how that works out!
By the way, I chose the names for my blog at random, because not many were untaken.
“That squiggle” is what I called the sign of the Cross that Catholics make before they hear the Gospel, on their forehead, lips and heart, when I first saw it and tried to imitate it, not really knowing what it was.
As a name, it represents how after becoming a Catholic, those songs and artworks which I had long held to be beautiful became real to me when I found out the doctrine of the Church. I was able to grasp of the meaning of life, and started to grow in a more authentic relationship with God and my loved ones. At some point, someone pointed out to me what “that squiggle” was and I started to understand what it was to live a life of integrity, for which I am always grateful!
“apersonalens” just means “a person”, followed by “a lens”, because I think it is important to value the human person and to view life philosophically, aware of the lenses that can clarify or be clouded. I see that it also reads like “a personal lens”, which is appropriate, too, because I am sharing a bit of myself and the way I see the world. I suppose you could also read “apersonal”, like other such Greek-stemmed words, but that was not my intention! Let’s not go nuts with the analysis!
