so i am a person who has a relationship with the shuffle button on my ipod. it allows me to mix things up and get a different feel of music every 3-5 minutes. everytime i do listen to my ipod or itunes and shuffle, one song always comes on..sometimes even twice. it's called better by regina spektor. i have come to the conclusion that my ipod is telling me that this is going to the anthem to my life. it always seems to be such a fulfilling song to listen to. one of those ones that will brighten your day and i feel like regina is actually talking to me when she is singing the song in my headphones. thank you shuffle. you have given me a new song to live through. it's always a pleasure.

some lines from my anthem

born like sisters to this world
in a town where blood ties are only blood
if you never say your name out loud to anyone
they can never ever call by it

if i kiss you where it's sore
will you feel better?
will you feel anything at all?

tis the season

it's that time of the year where i all of a sudden get addicted to swimsuit shopping. i don't know why i get this urge, because i really hate being in a swimsuit, however i can't help but constantly look at all sorts of websites looking for that perfect swimsuit.

here is one that is lucky to have made the cut this year. downside: SO EXPENSIVE! that's the thing i don't understand about swimsuits. with the lack of fabric that is used you would think they wouldn't cost as much as a shirt, jeans and shoes combined together. and really, is a swimsuit that worth it. it's frustrating because i am in love with these swimsuits that cost as much as my left arm...i don't think that made sense.

on a lighter note, spring break t minus 7 days. can't wait to be sleeping next to the pacific ocean where hopefully i can catch a few rays and come back with a glow. i am in desperate need of this vaca. i know i say that each time...but i really mean it on this trip.

as for this swimsuit. so long. my budget just isn't going to cut it for you. boo.

this woman right here is my mother. but she isn't just my mom, she is my best friend. she is my heart. i am her. when i am upset, just hearing her say hello will make me cry, because she is my comfort zone. she doesn't judge me for the person i am or the decisions i make. words to describe her-outstanding. beautiful. strong. funny. stubborn. poised. smart. loving. a little paranoid (but you gotta love it). caring. i take advantage of her. this mother LOVES to check up on me quite a bit. i get annoyed. but i forget that it is because she absolutely adores me and that i am her world. it's so nice knowing that i have the heart of someone who will never leave me because of the person i am. she will always love me. the bond of a mother and daughter is truly amazing. i am starting to realize that our bond is strengthening with each day. i value her more and more each day. i find myself still needing my mom everyday, even though i am getting older. i still enjoy cuddling with her on sunday afternoons. i still love when she does my hair. i still think that she is the most beautiful woman i know. she has taught me everything. she has given me values and structure. she has allowed me to grow on my own but guided me in the right direction when i have been led astray. this is my mom jenny. and she's pretty great.

being a girl

"You were not created to be the same as men. Your natural attributes, affections, and personalities are entirely different from these of a man. They consist of faithfulness, benevolence, kindness, and charity. They also balance the more aggressive and competitive nature of man. The business world is competitive and sometimes ruthless. We do not doubt that women have both the brain power and the skills to compete with men. But by competing they must of necessity, become aggressive and competitive. Thus their godly attributes are diminished and they acquire a quality of sameness with man. The conventional wisdom of the day would have you be equal with men. We say, we would not have you descend to that level."

dear jane. i blogged.

hi my name is katelyn and i haven't blogged for quite some time. so yes it's been a while since me and the blog world have had a date. i just haven't had much to talk about. my thoughts haven't been as insightful as i hope they usually are. let's just say i have been in what many call a rutt, slump, funk...all the above? i thought that once you hit the age of twenty, things start making a little more sense. wow was i wrong. however i came across this blog post via chloee via rockstar diaries that made me feel like i had something worthy to blog about. so here i am. it's called katelyn's list of 10 things that make her terribly happy. even if blog readers don't care, it will help me with that "all the above" problem i have been experiencing recently.

katelyn's list of 10 things that make her terribly happy

1. mocha's from beans and brew. the best pick me up ever.
2. running miles through the avenues.
3. discovering new music that no one knows about.
4. online shopping. expecting a delivery any day now actually.
5. cuddling. it makes you feel so safe.
6. finding a quote and applying it to my day.
7. fuzzy socks. my feet have a circulation problem apparently.
8. long drives at night with the best of friends.
9. disneyland.
10. star gazing. it's great when you get a shooting star to wish on.

i feel like with a busy schedule, i never seem to sit back and realize just how great my life is. okay so there are times where i am almost positive lady luck is out to get me, however, i am beginning to understand that maybe it's a test. and i am experiencing lessons that i must overcome and learn from. yes, i am just figuring this out. it's that whole patient stubborn attitude i was so lucky to gain as a child. here is my list, i suggest you make one too. because i guess it's always nice to be terribly happy.
