my name is Katharine, for short Katie. thought I would start this blog because I needed some therapy to keep my emotions in check… I finished high school today at a small private school totaling 1500 K-12, where I have spent the last 13 years of my life, in all its terror and glory. these incredible people… I can’t possibly imagine leaving. (and yes this was written on May 13, I didn’t JUST finish school lol. I wrote this over a month ago but never posted it till now). I just took a 30 min shower, and I spent 25 of the 30 min bawling my eyes out because all I can think about now, is not really graduation… but the day I have to wave goodbye to my mom and dad at move in day… watching them drive off, leaving their first baby girl to discover herself at college. To any of you whether you are a senior now, a junior or any other grade and you have thought about, even one time, how you can’t possibly leave your parents, you are not alone. My parents are my stronghold. They have been there for me every step of the way. My mom knows exactly when I need a hug and she and my dad both encourage me and push me to be the absolutely best, most honorable, loyal friend, teammate, sister, and daughter I could possibly be.

College is the scariest thing I will ever encounter. I’m worried about being on my own. I want to stick to this verse and I want to be a light in other people’s lives. I want him to use me in incredible ways and I really don’t want to fall into temptation. Be praying for me. This blog may be an emotional rollercoaster at times but… hey 🙂 thanks for reading
