Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Weekend is over, sad to say. But it was fun while it lasted.

Terrible weather though, let me tell you. Tipsy people and tornado warnings ... you can image the chaos.

Finally on Monday the weather was good. No rain. No tornados. Just sunshine and 80 degrees.

So I hung out with my boyfriend. Tanning, swimming, car washing, ice cream eating, tennis watching. It was nice.

Caleb is kind of a tennis fanatic, so we were watching the French Open. I think I actually understand how it all works ...

Sort of.

But anyway, only 2 and a half more weeks of school, then we're free. Can. Not. Wait.

Oh yes, I was doing a 365 on Facebook. Let's just say: I fail. I'm not sure if I should continue despite missing this whole weekend, or just stop now and consider it done. Or possibly do a version of it in the summer instead of trying to work around my crazy schedule. "The Days of Summer." Sounds nice, yes? I'll think about it. Perhaps I need to post extra pictures to make up for it? We'll see.

Exciting news: Drivers Ed for Kate this June! Finally. Everyone says it will feel like I'm still in school, but I don't care at this point. I just want to be able to drive.

I'm going to keep babbling on. Alright? Cool.

Dance recital is in June. The 11th and 12th, to be exact. It's coming up soon, and I'm getting nervous. But also excited. Tech week is the week before the show, and we all practically live on stage. Tech week is when we get lights, music, and costumes all situated. I remember last year, and how much I loved it. The lights, the music, the make up, the dancing. Working hard all day, everyday, to finally show on Saturday what we've all worked so hard for. It feels good. I like tech week just as much as I like the actual performance.

But I'm done babbling now. I hope you all had a nice weekend.

Girls Who Love Blindly

They are young
And unknowing
The don't know what they deserve
In the night they cry
But they call it love

They repeat the pain every day
As if their life depended on it
Depended on the hurt
Their hearts are crushed
But they call it love

They are broken
Into a thousand pieces
Stuck in the pattern
Used to the pain
But they call it love

My Summer Time

Shorts and tank tops
Swimming and flip flops
Tan lines and late nights
This would be my summer time

Fresh air
Mowed grass
Cool breeze
Please last

White sand
Beach hair
Lots of laughs
Not a care

Ice cream
Movie dates
Star gazing
Soul mate

June to September
Family and friends
Loving every minute
From beginning to end

I'm just Kate

I've come to realize that I will never be the crazy, outgoing, make-everyone-laugh kind of girl.

I'm more of the quiet, reserved type. I don't talk a lot, and sometimes people think I'm weird because of that.

I've always been shy and quiet, and I never used to like that about myself.

But I've come to realize - This is me. This is Kate.

Kate is simple and quiet.

Kate is down to earth.

Kate isn't loud, or crazy, or "Hey, look at me!"

Kate is just Kate.

Plain and simple.

70 degrees




It's going to be a good day

I went for a run the other day.

Bad idea.

First off, I hate running. A lot. I don't even know what possessed me to run, but I did. I should tell you though, it was walk, run, walk, run, walk, repeat, with more walking than running...

But still.

My feet? In pain.

My legs? Sore.

Me? Not running ever again.

Nope. Not running again.

Bike ride? We'll see.

Cloudy Days

The past week has been a cloudy one. Literally and figuratively. It seems as though it's been raining non stop, and there's this gloom in the air.

Everyone is dying for the sun to finally show itself, so we can all be warm again, and get out of this winter gloom.

Even though I'm sick of the rain, I love the fresh smell it leaves, and how it makes the grass a vivid green. And really, I can't complain. We could be getting tornadoes and snow storms. I'll take fresh rain any day.

A lot of people are having bad days though. A friend from school learned Sunday that her older brother, who was in the military, passed away. Everyone's heart is broken for her and her family. It's amazing how many people are there for her, too. Facebook is flooded with inspirational posts and prays. It reminds you that there are people there in the dark times, and this world isn't as horrible a place as it may seem. Even during the cloudy days.

I just hope the sun shines soon. We all need a break and a fresh take.

But I've realized something. Even if it's cloudy, the sun is always shining, even if we can't see it's light or feel it's warmth. And when the clouds part, even for a moment, the sun  never fails to shine and cheer everyone up a little bit. It's made me think about how we should try to be the sun, even if the clouds of life are too thick and dark for us to shine through. You never know when the clouds will part and someone will feel your warmth or see your light. The sun is contagious.

Be the sun in a cloudy world.

Nothing Ever Lasts Forever
