I’m glad you like my blog, but I DON’T want you glued to your seats…

Figuratively or literally.

I’ve had people email/FB/text me saying how much they appreciate my blog.  And I appreciate that YOU appreciate it.  It feels good to have readers, especially if I’m gonna get that Webby, BUUUUUT, remember that your story is more important than mine.  Read my blog when you’re on your computer or Iphone or whatever, but don’t forget to LIVE YOUR LIFE!

It’s incredible….

Just found this video from about 3 years ago.  Watching it was fun.  And funny.  And painful (is there ANYONE who likes his/her own speaking voice?)  But what’s incredible is how much I see myself and all my core beliefs again.  Humor, beauty, kindness, expression, creativity, Christ, understanding.  Not bad.  Even if it wasn’t one of my better hair days 🙂  Now I wanna go find me an apricot!

He may be angry, obscene, and even hateful at times….

but there is no denying that Eminem has incredible talent, especially when it comes to wordplay.  He also does a pretty good job articulating his beliefs about words and language to Anderson Cooper.  This clip is intelligent and fascinating.  Check it!

Teachers, take note (do I say that too much?)!

The Law of Thermodynamics

The entropy of my bedroom…

Image

is always increasing!

#not proud of it, but gotta laugh so I don’t cry, know what I mean?)

#not usually this bad, just wanted to exaggerate for artistic purposes (it was moving day a few years ago)

*Famous (and weirdo) American writer Thomas Pynchon has a relatively renowned short story called “Entropy” dealing with slightly related themes, but in a less funny and more disillusioning way.  Like, we close ourselves off from the world cuz it’s so bad.  Sad.  Will write about that piece eventually…

#hey boys, if we fall in love I promise I will remedy this bedroom situation STAT and be your perfect cookie-cutter Mormon housewife!  I’ll sweep the floor if you sweep this girl off her feet.

I will sweep, sweep, sweep you off your feet…

Have you ever seen a picture of yourself and you remember how you felt at the time, and it wasn’t necessarily what showed?

Screen shot 2013-07-31 at 3.28.30 AM

This is one of those pictures.  On the outside I just look like  a girl with high cheekbones, a great sense of color, and someone who could sport a red lip with confidence and class.  But on the inside, I was hurting pretty badly.  Everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.  Even beautiful people.  Be kind.

 

Sometimes beauty isn’t recognized

when it contrasts with what you feel inside.

A legit musician put gas in my car AND bought me a drink! Non-alcoholic of course.

Image

True story.  Probz should have actually cleaned myself up a little, huh? Oh well.  Ya’ll know I’m beautiful, even if not everyday.  But I digress.   This kid Oba is the real deal.

And boy can break it DOWN!

This stuff is good enough to be on the radio.  Too good.  Puts Chris Brown and Jason DeRulo to shame.  This song is another literary gem, teachers.  Can you believe this kid is giving up music for 2 years to go on an LDS mission?  Now THAT’S dedication.  You know homeboy will be winning Grammys in no time when he gets back.  Oba if you ask really nice, I GUESS I’ll be your date although it’s such a terrible bother to get a pretty dress and have  your makeup and hair all done up and stuff….. 🙂

Gender confusion?

Hierarchy of Digital Communication

There is a hierarchy of what is generally considered appropriate in the levels of communication.  I don’t mind giving my email out to most people.  Then if people know your full name they can find you on Facebook, and depending on how comfortable you are, you can choose to accept their friend request or not.  I along with many others won’t give my phone number out freely.  And address?  No way, Jose!  But yes, email I am quite comfortable with.

Screen shot 2013-08-10 at 11.05.29 AM

But here’s the funny thing:  IT’S EASIER TO REACH ME VIA EMAIL THAN PHONE!  Actually, scratch that, text and email are probably about equal.  Rest assured, I DO pick up the phone, listen to my messages, call people back (employers, I’m talking to you!)  And generally, I do a pretty good job of keeping in touch with people, getting back to them, etc.  I just find it interesting that “phone” kinda seems to be the VIP form of communication, but this girl ain’t that into it…

“I’m a gerbil on a treadmill, and everyone else has crossed the finish line.”

I used this phrase more than once in the not too recent past to express how I felt I was doing in life (“mixed metaphors” are a tool that Shakespeare often used and Katherine occasionally experiments with).  You know, all the things we’re supposed to accomplish?  Career, marriage, family, not crashing your car, stuff like that.  It seemed like so many people around me were doing all those things, and I was just praying that I didn’t forget to pay my utility bill!  But I’ve since re-examined that phrase.  The thing is, gerbils are really cute, I am one of those rare people who enjoy treadmills and even got one for my 15th birthday, and I actually have crossed a finish line or two.

Oh yeah, and I started a blog that has reached across the globe in less than a week.  One is bigger than zero, ya’ll!  🙂

“You could always just replace my birth control pills with tic-tacs.”

Thought up this line a few years ago.   I will use it in one of the following 2 situations:

A)  my husband wants kids before I do….

B)  I  sell it to a screenwriter who writes it into a script where the main character (who may or may not be played by me)’s husband wants kids before she does.

Considering the fact that my clock is ticking, option B is looking like it’s gonna win out.  Hollywood, any takers?

“Am I wearing too many colors?”

I love colors.  And I love dressing to IMpress, as well as EXpress.

Image

But I want people to see and remember not just my clothes, but also ME and my natural beauty (enhanced a little with makeup and occasionally fake lashes).  And when you wear a lot of bright things that stand out, there can be too many things to look at.  So maybe if I wanna wear a bright color, I should just stick to one.

Image

Nah…

#someday will be in a real music video perhaps

#song is TOTES about Christ/salvation/all that good stuff

#that dress is my “prison” dress, and am wearing pretty shimmery copper eyeshadow

#song later mentions “Catherine.”  To hear Miss Bedingfield sing my name is heaven…

I have this theory…

Image

about people with pictures (particularly FB profile pictures) of themselves with children that are not directly their own (like a niece or nephew).  We want people to think we love them (which we do!), but really we just think we look super hot and want others to see and think we are good with kids and stuff.  Ain’t pointing any fingers.  I do it too!  Now I love my little twin nieces. But come on now, you know who this picture is really about 🙂

“After a Hurricane comes a rainbow..” saywhat now?

What kind of whack-job meteorologist have you been listening to, Katy?  Anything for a rhyme, I guess.  And I still like the song by the way, particularly on the 4th of July.

Should have worn it on my cheek instead of my forehead to make it more legit, but I was covering an actual wound/popped zit instead of trying to look like a gangster.  And I KNOW it’s hot in herrrreeeee, Mr. Nelly, but I would prefer not to, thanks.

Is it any wonder?

Screen shot 2013-09-03 at 11.29.49 PM

I love my sista, yes I do.  But some days it’s hard not to be jealous.  Scratch that, ALL days it’s hard not to be jealous.  Now I’m not saying that I don’t have anything going for me, but hermana has a hot husband who could catch fish with his teeth, a great job inserting catheters and stuff like that, and has generally made a very good transition into this adult life.

And me? No husband (yet?).  Not quite set on this whole career thing.  And even though this blog has been a HUGE part of my journey of self-discovery and expression, still sorting out life.

So really.  Is it any wonder (Kat is keen on Keane!) I gave her this look (on her wedding day no less)?

Image

AND my hair didn’t look that cute that day.  Darnie.

*read into the black and white symbolism in every way possible way you can and you will likely be correct….

Accidental Ombre

Hey Miley!  Your hair looks…interesting.  I sported a similar look once, and I can guarantee I spent less money than you:

We had a great view….

Image

When I was living abroad for a brief period during the summer of 2010, I at one point sensed a need to unite the girls in our house.  We weren’t having any major problems or anything, but we were living in close quarters, it was hot and sticky, and everyone had their share of humanitarian projects that didn’t go through quite as we had hoped.  Plus I of all people know the importance of a good, hearty belly laugh every now and then.  So I concocted this little project (and I feel the need to point out that while I of course had help, I was the head honcho of this artistic undertaking); I must say I think it turned out quite nicely!  So even though we were different girls with different goals and objectives, we came together as friends of all shapes, sizes, and colors to SUPPORT each other.

10 fingers and 5 toes

I have a certain friend.  He has 10 fingers and 5 toes.  He had a freak-accident (I’m no stranger to those) a few years ago where he had to have them amputated.  Cray-cray, right?  Anyways, this guy is a good guy.  He is really funny and close to the Lord and works hard.  Even though he doesn’t live in Provo anymore, I am so grateful for our friendship and just know we will keep in touch for years to come 🙂  I will show you a picture of his foot (but not of his face!)

Image

And guess what?  His foot ain’t the most interesting thing about him…not in the least 🙂
