Inside The Life Of Katelyn

broken, lonely, confused.

I post a lot of sad shit, but I’m not always a sad person. I have my good days and I have my bad days, everyone does. if you ask me if I’m okay, I’m probably going to lie and say yes. but truth be told I’m not.

I’m broken and I’m picking up the pieces one by one. my day to day mood depends on a variety of things, including the memories I think about every night before bed. some good, some bad.

I suffer from depression. I overthink. I over analyze. I overeat. I oversleep. somedays are harder than others. everybody copes differently.

I try my best to be the best person I can be day in and day out, id give you my last dollar and the shirt off my back any day of the week if it would help you out in the moment or in the long run.

I cry, a lot. what girl doesn’t? sometimes I randomly cry because of a song that comes on the radio, other times it’s like my body has prepared itself to fill a river with the tears I’m shedding.

My life has never been butterflies and rainbows. and I don’t expect it to start now, almost 23 years later.

Everybody goes through trials and tribulations, how you deal with it depends on you.

I deal with things a lot differently now that I’m older, mainly because I can’t take out my problems with a bat and ball like I used too. but people don’t understand.

I cut people out of my life so quickly, and I don’t allow many people inside. I’m scared to love. I’m scared to care. I’m scared of people in general and that’s mainly because I learned at a young age that not everyone you meet is the person you see on the outside.

Life’s hard, for all of us. but if there is one thing I’ve learned in this 23 years of life, it would have to be to let loose and love with all your heart because that’s one thing I CAN NOT do, and I wish I could. Smile. Laugh. Love. Repeat. Don’t let past mistakes hold you back from becoming a “new” person.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
