hey there

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.

“Do not conform to the patterns of this world but be renewed by the strength of your own mind”

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

One thought on “hey there

Add yours

  1. We have such a special relationship. We always have. And I feel grateful everyday to know that, too. We know that you are not leaving to get away from “us”, you are leaving to find your path for the future… and how to best use and share all the talents God has given you. We still get to be a part of it, too!

    We are one week out from that “big day”… and I’ve taken many deep breaths to prepare. But as Macie said a few days ago, “how is it possible that my heart can be breaking at the same time it is so full?” and it’s because I know you are ready. And I am so so so proud of you, and the influence and strength and support you will give to people who need you. You gave always had such a kind heart and I’m proud to know that so many more people are going to be touched by it.

    I’m rambling (that’s what I do after all!) but I just want you to know that if I am ever sad and missing you, I will look down and see my bracelet. 🙂 And if I’m really sad, I will just think about the “Indiana War.” And I will smile.

    I love you.
    Mom
