I will NEVER be as cool as Natasha Bedingfield,

I don’t need a microphone to say what I’ve been thinking.

My heart is like a loudspeaker, that’s always on 11.

The stripping going on is NOT literal, people!

Together in life

PS Yes that is how ghetto my phone is, and yes they do have phone numbers.  I just photo-shopped them out so they don’t get hounded by the paparazzi.

Just in case you forgot who was female and who was male,

the Wilkinsons color-coded our outfits to help you out.

But I’m all about gender neutrality, so I wore BOTH!

After an extensive count and REcount of the votes, I am pleased to announce the results of the title of this blog….

(if you recall I wrote earlier about my title troubles)

STAYING AS IT IS!  (but will probably drop the “wordpress” part of it soon.  looking into that)

P.S.  I’ve received exactly 3 emails on the subject matter

I TOTALLY feel ya, Macklemore….

“Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
Instead of getting on the Internet and checking a new hit”

“little bit of humble, little bit of cautious”

#read lyrics here: 

#ambivalent feelings toward fame…..

#this song is about as near to perfection as one can get…

#still wouldn’t hate a Webby 🙂

#just barely over 4,000 hits…in 20 countries…in 11 days-LITERALLY!

#pride is the downfall of civilizations

# I STILL DO OTHER STUFF, PEOPLE!  sometimes…

#still no money, but have made strides in that direction 🙂

“I trust your judgment”

Screen shot 2013-09-03 at 3.17.39 PM

is one of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received.  And within the past few days, I’ve heard it THRICE!  As a friend, woman, writer, Christian, Latter-day Saint, and all the other things I am, I will do my very best to live up to that trust.  And though your literal life is not in my hands (not in the medical field like Sam, Maizy, and Drew), I still consider it a very sacred responsibility.  So thanks…

Starting to rethink this whole tanning thing…

Remember when I told you I had learned to be confident having less melanin in my skin that others (IE I was happy being a whitie)?

Well, after reviewing some of the following pictures,

I’m beginning to have second thoughts…

PS.  Readers PLEASE KNOW that skin color/tanning is NOT the only thing I think about when I see these pictures.  Sure I appreciate beauty/fashion/makeup/color, etc. but even I’m not that shallow as to forget the wonderful faith, spirit, friendship and love of the people I met in Fiji.

Just enough sexual tension to make it interesting…

Screen shot 2013-08-03 at 9.51.48 AM

but not enough to make it inappropriate or uncomfortable.

 I am Mormon, woman, and human, and the order of those 3 things sometimes changes.  And I want to be honest but not obscene.  There is nothing on this blog that I wouldn’t want an employer to see.  Or my mom.  There is nothing that I believe could compromise my temple recommend.  And still I bare my soul.  But it seems to be working out okay because I keep getting more and more followers 🙂

“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!  🙂

Giving a second thought to Atheism…

At one point I thought (consciously or not) that all atheists were kind of like this:

I do not think that anymore.

Still LDS 🙂
