I’m smart, but not THAT smart…

Screen shot 2013-08-17 at 9.58.58 PM

A few days ago I received an email from someone who said (among other things), “you just write like you are too smart.”  Um, thanks?  Anyways, it made me think about the diversity of topics I cover, and I can understand that some may assume that Katherine is just trying to flaunt her knowledge because she’s sad that she hasn’t gotten eyelash extensions lately, isn’t yet married or something like that.  So here’s what I’ve come up with:

THE PERCEPTION OF KATHERINE’S KNOWLEDGE

MAY NOT BE 100% ACCURATE!

This theorem consists of 2 sub-postulates:

1)  I may not be as intelligent as this blog may give the impression.

2)  I am not as much of a media/(pop) culture junkie as this blog might make it seem.

Yes, both of those points are true.  It’s just that I have a painfully sharp memory (for good and for bad), and there’s not much that escapes my steel trap.  Also, I’ve done an excellent (though not perfect) job of keeping journals, music, pictures, articles, and other influences that are now part of the culmination of this blog experience.  So even if something did slip from my mind, I have it elsewhere to re-insert into my cranium.

As far as further inspiration goes, of course I wish to partake of film, literature, occasional television, music, journalism, and art.  But I also know that I need to pace myself, and that I cannot ever consume it all (don’t want to, anyways!).  Eternity is a long time; I can catch up on that Audrey Hepburn special I missed if I don’t get to it now, know what I mean?

Plus, I know that no matter what good influences I fill my soul with, I MUST leave room in my Christmas inn (don’t miss that Biblical allusion please!) for the most important:

Where is the wisdom in all this knowledge?

Where is the knowledge in all this information?

-James Faust

“You got so much to do, and only so many hours in a day.”

     ~Billy Joel

READERS:  Don’t feel overwhelmed if you can’t make it to every professional development conference, read every book, or catch every episode of your favorite TV show (hopefully it’s uplifting and not complete filth.).  Work hard, but also remember to try to keep some sort of balance.  Eternity is a long time.

Good problem to have…

Back to work now…

STOP BEATING YOURSELF UP!

Oh, except that when it comes to lips, I prefer red

over white (LITERALLY) 8 days a week.

PS.  I am VERY careful about how I portray violence (if at all) in this blog.  So I understand if that first picture is a bit offensive, but I just love how it captures what so many of us do to ourselves.  Britney ain’t perfect, but that’s pretty genius I think.

This is what I see, people.  This is what I see.

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.

Sometimes your skin and makeup look so good….

that you just have to post even though what you are wearing looks ridiculous.

Get a Darker Under Shirt!

Colors can be deceiving, can’t they?

“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.

Nah…
