Hello! I’m Katie and I hope you enjoy looking through my page! I have always been interested in journaling and writing, but was always too nervous to start a blog. But this year I finally decided to go for it and it’s been a blast. I’m writing mostly about my life experiences, but hopefully in a way that can advise or guide others in their lives. These topics are things like recipes, traveling, and college life, but I’d love to write about anything. If there’s something else you’d like to see, let me know and I’ll do my best to speak on my experience with it.

Before I continue on about this blog, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I’m about to be a senior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a major in Human Development and Family Studies (basically psychology + sociology + education). I grew up with dogs, so I’m counting down the days until I can get one of my own. I don’t really watch sports other than Carolina basketball, but I do enjoy going to baseball games. My mom and I are about to start training for the Annapolis Running Classic….who let us sign up for this?? Finally, I am currently interested in working for a nonprofit focused on literacy. Through my studies and summer job, I’ve developed a passion for ensuring everyone has the chance to learn how to read. If you ask me, it’s the most important skill one can have, but so many children are denied the proper support and opportunity to learn. I have covered some of these facts in posts so far and will definitely cover the rest at some point.

So now that you know all of that, I have a few more things to say about the blog itself. I’m still trying to learn how to edit the pages and add features, so let me know if you have any tutorial recs or tips!! I should mention that is this currently a free site on wordpress.com not wordpress.org. Information on making the switch to .org and how to do all the coding/what and where to download the parts needed/etc. would also be greatly appreciated.

This blog is mainly for me to have fun with and share with others, but I’m excited for the future of it. I post pictures that go along with my posts on Instagram, so check out @greightkate – there’s a preview on the right sidebar above!
