If I were to recount my 'quick takes' since the last time I linked up, you would would be here all day - so we'll just go with the past few weeks! As I started writing again last weekend, I realized how much I really love writing and documenting my life. I stopped blogging back in the Fall after a writer/speaker/radio show host I like said something about how blogs give everyone a place to squirt out their opinion even if they have nothing to say. Then, I got to thinking about what I really have to say and why I write. After my weekend with the NAS girls in Savannah I realized that I don't blog because I have something to say to you, but because I have something to say to me. In the age of technology, writing a daily journal has because more and more difficult for me, so I became committed again to this place to write, to me, to the future Katie (and the past Katie) about what life is like. If you enjoy, I'm happy to share!
I'm closing on a house today. Yes - I"m buying a townhouse. I can't even believe it. This is so crazy, but as I was talking to MG last night, that seems to be how I roll lately. Just ... plain ... crazy. I think I need to redefine it and say this is the new normal so when something outlandish does happen, we have a better word!
Check out my house!
Here I come!!!
This summer I also said goodbye to my roommate of a year, Lisa. We had a great year!
Some of the evidence is here:
|We had a growing collection of our favorite looking bottles!|
|google made us into a gif!|
I also purchased a chromebook this summer and it has been such a great addition to my life. It is probably the reason for my increased blogging, it creates those great gifs you've been seeing around when I import my pictures from my phone, and all around, a great investment for me!
I started running again this week, after a two week hiatus ... now tomorrow, my new running partner and I are running a 5K! What? Crazy again ... looking forward to it, anxious about the event. We'll see how it goes, I don't think I'll be able to run the entire thing, but I'll definitely be able to finish.
I'm also pretty excited my friend Fr. Michael is coming to visit Charlotte this weekend. He's living in Chapel Hill now to study Physics and UNC, so he'll be in NC (my state) for 5 years! I'm excited about being able to visit with him more often!
See you next week - check out Jen's for some more quick takes!
