My name is Katie. I'm here to to share a little bit about myself and learn about others, and I hope to bring a little bit of sunshine into the lives of the people I meet, in my own little quirky way =]

Love.

I used to ask my mom what was it that made her and my dad decide to get married, obviously she said they loved each other, and then she’d go on to tell me that you just know. She said it’s hard to explain, but it’s a feeling deep down, and you just know.  I’ve always held onto that, and went into relationships thinking is this what it feels like to just “know”? Then I met my Chad. My life has not been the same since I met Chad. He has literally tuned my whole world around, and I mean that in a great way. It’ll be two years that we’ve been together coming up in June, so may say two years is nothing.. However, I didn’t need much time to realize that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Chad. I just knew, and I think everybody around us realized that too. My best friend told me three days after the day Chad and I met, ” I don’t know Katie, I just have a feeling about this guy, like he could be the one for you”. She was completely right. He is my best friend. We have been through a lot of really rough patches and some really amazing moments, and whether it was rough or amazing, we stood side by side, still madly in love with each other. For better or for worse.

Boyfriend. Snow. What?

So, Chad (my boyfriend) and I spend pretty much every day together unless weather (the f’in snow) prevents us from doing so.  Some might say we spend TOO much time together, but I don’t really give a damn! Chad is my best friend, I mean I tell him everything, he probably wishes I didn’t (haha). Yes, we get on each other’s nerves. Duh, it’s only natural. When you do spend that much time with somebody, you’re bound to butt heads now and then. However, we get past that. I love spending everyday with him. I think it’s great. I plan to marry this man so I think it’s smart that we spend most of our days together. The other plus is that we share friends. I like his friends, he likes my friends, we all like each other. Pretty sweet deal. Anyway, I’ve gotten really off track here. The whole point of this post is for me to bitch about the snow some more. 1. It took me TWO HOURS to get myself home from work today, are you kidding me? WHERE WERE THE PLOWS? Oh that’s right, no where in sight!  and 2. I don’t get to see my adorable boyfriend’s face tonight because of it. Besides that, I’m pretty much snowed in for the night. It’s pointless to even attempt getting in a vehicle tonight. Ugh. I REALLY hope things are cleared up for tomorrow… If not I’m going to be one icy bitch!

Free as a bluebird: Indiana beach →

Honestly, I couldn’t have described it better myself. I’ve been going to IB since I was a baby, and yes I get A LOT of wrath about my love for IB, but I have AWESOME memories there and nothing is going to change that =] Can’t wait until summer.

findaroadtoahumbleabode:

ok, so I told everyone I’m going to Indiana beach in a week. let me tell you a little bit about Indiana beach:

It has a distinct odor. like rotted wood, mold, and chlorine. an aroma that I can remember throughout the whole year.

It’s itty bitty. an absolute speck of an amusement park.

It’s…

Snow.

I was REALLY happy with the fact that we pretty much avoided snow from November through December, and I mean like ecstatic. I used to love the snow, but now I’m old and crabby. I hate driving in it, and I hate the ice that usually accompanies it. What if I break my hip? Fuck the snow. Thank you.

Airborne Toxic Event: Sometime Around Midnight

And it starts
Sometime around midnight
Or at least that’s when
You lose yourself
For a minute or two

As you stand
Under the bar lights
And the band plays some song
About forgetting yourself for a while
And the piano’s this melancholy soundcheck
To her smile
And that white dress she’s wearing
You haven’t seen her
For a while

But you know
That she’s watching
She’s laughing, she’s turning
She’s holding her tonic like a crux
The room suddenly spinning
She walks up and asks how you are
So you can smell her perfume
You can see her lying naked in your arms

And so there’s a change
In your emotions
And all of these memories come rushing
Like feral waves to your mind
Of the curl of your bodies
Like two perfect circles entwined
And you feel hopeless, and homeless
And lost in the haze
Of the wine

And she leaves
With someone you don’t know
But she makes sure you saw her
She looks right at you and bolts
As she walks out the door
Your blood boiling
Your stomach in ropes
And when your friends say, “What is it?”
You look like you’ve seen a ghost

And you walk
Under the streetlights
And you’re too drunk to notice
That everyone is staring at you
And you so care what you look like
The world is falling
Around you

You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her
You just have to see her

And you know that she’ll break you in two

Paul McCartney: Live and Let Die

When you were young
And your heart was an open book

You used to say, “Live and let live”
(You know you did, you know you did, you know you did)
But if this ever-changing world in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry

Say live and let die
Live and let die
Live and let die
Live and let die

What does it matter to ya, when you’ve got a job to do, you gotta do it well
You gotta give the other fellow Hell

You used to say, “Live and let livin’”
(You know you did, you know you did, you know you did)
But if this ever-changing world in which we live in
Makes you give in and cry

Say, live and let die
Live and let die
Live and let die
Live and let die

Kings Of Leon: Knocked up

I don’t care what nobody says
We’re gonna have a baby
Taking off in a Coup De Ville
She’s buckled up on Navy

She don’t care what her momma says
No, she’s gonna have my baby
Taking all I have to take
This takin’ is gonna shape me

People call us renegades
'Cause we like living crazy
We like taking on the town
'Cause people's getting lazy

I don’t care what nobody says
No, I’m going to be her lover
Always mad and usually drunk
But I love her like no other

And the doctor says he don’t know
Where we gonna go?
I’m a ghost and I don’t think I quite know
Where we’re gonna go? Where we’re gonna go?

People call us renegades
'Cause we like living crazy
We like taking on this town
'Cause people's getting lazy

I don’t care what nobody says
No, I’m going to be her lover
Always mad and usually drunk
But I love her like no other

And her daddy says he don’t know
Where we gonna go?
I’m a ghost and I don’t think I quite know
Where we gonna go? Where we gonna go?
Where we gonna go? Where we gonna go?
Where we gonna

People call us renegades
We like taking on this town
And I don’t care if you don’t win

I don’t care what nobody says
We’re gonna have a baby
Taking off in a Coup De Ville
She’s buckled up on Navy

She don’t care what her mama said
No, she’s gonna have my baby
I’m taking all I have to take
'Cause takin' is gonna shape me

nobody really realizes how a person with high anxiety suffers in silence.
the slightest worry practically wears one out so much.
