Hi I'm Katherine

I am inexplicably infatuated with the 80's. I talk in lists far more than is reasonable. I write stuff. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a still undeclared sophomore in college, attending Brigham Young University. I'd like to be a writer but am continually debating with myself at what point I can actually declare "I am a writer" without being too pitifully wishful. I was born in Provo and currently study there, but am hardly a native or well-acquainted with Utah in any way. I spent my entire upbringing in Ohio. After a Memorial Day family vacation gone bizarrely awry years ago, I developed a rapid attachment to the works of John Hughes. This thus spiraled into an only slightly concerning obsession for 80's culture that lingers faithfully with me today. I have three little sisters (whom I try to resist the urge to similarly 80's brainwash so they can become "their own person"), and wonderful parents/best friends. I can't play an instrument, but I can make a great playlist. I hate anything demanding extensive skill and coordination of the hands (from crafts to sports, it's all beyond me), but I love anything that gets me typing at approximately 90 wpm and articulating thoughts somewhat charmingly. I don't like being around people, but I do like people. I (sometimes far too disdainfully) avoid the saccharine and insincere, but I (sometimes far too inconsistently) aspire to the genuine and hopeful. I pick things up with my toes on occasion.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe it. I believe this gospel. I find no greater peace and sense of understanding than through the doctrine and practices Christ's teachings and His restored church, here with us today, offer. I feel more aware of who I am and catch routine glimpses of my best self, because I am Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to be more, each day. I seek growth. I recognize weaknesses and strive to better them, or at the very least be humbled by a constant cognizance of them. I try to always remember what He did for all of us, and what He did for me, and that through that both I and all those around me can every day start again. I currently have no calling, as I am in between school years and spending a summer at home. Perhaps that will change soon. Regardless, I just try to add to what I've been given, to increase the good I can do, and on a very individual, personal level with the people I have been so blessed to touch as they have touched me. I know, I can feel, in each life I truly get to know, His love for me. I hope to become nothing more than one who also conveys that love through the way I live.
