Recently I learned 2 important things about myself.
1) I will put on pink lipstick before any task I think may be stressful or that may make me feel like I’m not in control. Like while I’m waiting for my ride to the airport, which happened to be quite late, and it happened to end up not mattering at all. (Is mattering even a word? I don’t think this thing has very good spell check.) Or like when I hear that our flight to Denver is going to be delayed due to blizzard conditions.
Nothing I can do about it, so I might as well put on some lipstick. Continue reading
You guys, EPIC NEWS.
We (Hannah and I) took a picture together when we were in the same place and looking pretty!! Check it ouuuuttt!
Sorry if this ruins some elaborate narrative you had about us actually being the same person, or two different sides of Hannah’s personality, or if you thought that I was maybe a dude. I hope you can forgive us and that we can still be internet friends.
Okay, with that EPIC NEWS out of the way, let’s talk about something really serious… Like how everything is out to get me recently.
Let’s just state the obvious and get that out of the way. I love science. And learning.
But. That being said, there are some things that I would prefer remain a mystery. Things I hope no one ever explains to me. I’m putting this list out there in public to avoid the same devastation I experienced upon learning that baby carrots are not, in fact, tiny carrots that grow with tiny carrot tops on a tiny carrot farm.

Real talk: I, Kate, am an obsessive person.
When I find something I like, I let it consume me. Until I find the next thing I can’t live without. I know that moderation is supposed to be the key to happiness or something like that. But I just don’t work that way. At all.
Let’s talk about some things I’m super in love with lately.
A major life event happened! And I’m not talking about the fact that I recently dyed my own sofa slipcover, although that is fairrrrrrly major. For my life.
No. A REAL life event. My little brother went to college! I say little, but, let’s face it. I’ve been the shortest person in my family for an embarrassingly long time. Dumb. Continue reading
Guh. This summer. I’m sorry for being pretty much the worst at posting things.
I’m just kinda busy and exhausted. I mean, before I get whiny: my life is awesome. My existence as a Summer Associate is cushy. I know this. But, my life is also a 12 week long interview at the moment. This means that I haven’t been able to wear sweatpants for months. This means I have to do my hair every day. This means I actually have to put “bake” on my To Do List. It’s bizarre and weird and I apologize that its affecting you.
Anyway. Hi! I’ve missed you!
So, funny story: I might be typing this on an iPad. That’s probably something I never envisioned doing. Oh, the turns life takes. My laptop’s wireless card decided to stop working and I didn’t want to keep y’all without a post for any more days. Thus, I post from my iPad.
There are a few reasons why I find my iPad-posting bizarre.
Some might also say it’s bizarre that I made my dad a pink cake for Father’s Day. Whatever. I don’t like to do what’s expected (that’s maybe a big fat lie).
