I think I have to agree with this one.



You Have an Idealistic Heart



Your heart craves true love. You may wait a long time for it, but you're willing to wait.

You have an idea of what love should be like, and you're not about to settle. You want your heart to be genuinely happy.



It's likely that your heart has been broken quite a bit. Your heart is easily disappointed.

It takes a long time for your heart to heal. You never forget the wounds that have been inflicted on it.






Huh. Interesting. For the most part, I have to agree with this one too.


You Are Accomplished



Of all the types, you are the most motivated and the most driven. You want to achieve all your goals.

You thrive when you're able to work hard and be creative. You are constantly impressing people.



Some people say you are a bit competitive and calculating, but you really just love to win.

You do your best to seize every opportunity and find success. You are extremely ambitious.






BITCH!!! YOU DON'T KNOW MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Except it's eerily accurate...DAMN!!!)


You Fall for the Guy or Girl Next Door Type



You think that people make love too complicated, and what you want in a partner happens to be pretty simple.

You're content with someone who's nice, attractive, honest, and normal. So how come that's so hard to find?



You are fairly traditional, and you value security in relationships more than most people. It's important for you to find someone loyal.

When you find the right person, you don't expect much from him or her. You're just happy to be together.






DAMN! They did it again!!!! Mmmmm....beer!!!


You Are Budweiser



You are down to earth, well grounded, and practical. Some may even call you sensible.

You say what you mean and you mean what you say. You're straight shooting and honest.



It's likely that you're more of a productive type than a creative type. You enjoy working hard.

You live in the now and enjoy every moment. You appreciate what you've got, and you're also very humble about what you deserve.






Ummm....perhaps.


You Persuade People Through Emotion



You hate to admit it, but people make decisions with their hearts. Their heads don't play much role in the equation.

So even though you are cool headed, you know you have to be warm hearted in order to convince people you're right.



You craft your words carefully. You speak to inspire, motivate, and stir up emotions.

You know that once someone wants to be on your side, they'll figure out their own reasons for why.







Sometimes!!


You Are Absurdism



You just have to shake your head and laugh at the world. Everything is so crazy and absurd.

You don't try to make sense of much, because you don't think there is much to make sense of.



You kick back and try to enjoy the chaos. You'll only make yourself crazy if you try to find meaning in things.

Life is random, confusing, and one heck of a wild ride. Anything that makes sense is pure coincidence.

Your Heart is Yellow and Green



Your heart is caring and generous.

You are kind, understanding, and forgiving.

You bring objectivity and rationality to relationships.

You're good at giving your partner freedom and space.




Huh. Interesting.




People Envy Your Compassion



You have a kind heart and an unusual empathy for all living creatures. You tend to absorb others' happiness and pain.

People envy your compassion, and more importantly, the connections it helps you build. And compassionate as you are, you feel for them.





I would tend to agree! Not that people actually envy this quality in me specifically, but it is one characteristic of my personality that I do love! :)






Deep Down You Are Intuitive



You're the type of person who understands other people and the world very well. You don't let on to how much you know.

You can tell so much from someone's facial expressions or tone of voice. And you always know when you're being lied to.



You show the world exactly what you want to show. Besides being good at reading people, you also know how you're being read.

You know when you're being manipulated, and you know how to manipulate someone if you have to. You usually don't resort to it though!





This is actually pretty freakin' accurate!!

So since I've not posted in a LONG time, it's about time I did!

We'll hit the highlights in this post and in the next one it's just some random things on my mind that I need to put down in order to sleep!

1. I graduated from UGA on august 1, 2009!!!! Once a Dawg, always a Dawg, how sweet it is!

2. As much as I wanted to stay in Athens after I graduated and find some sort of temporary job for a year or so, I realized at the end of last year that that is not what I needed to do. I had asked Michelle to move in with me and take Nicole's spot in the 707, but I never went to re-sign the lease and something kept stopping me and it was that voice that said, hey...you need to get away from Athens for now, come back later if need be, but this is not where you need to be. So I listened!

3. I am currently living in Douglasville more commonly known to me as D'ville, living with Dad, Valerie and my brothers and sister. It's just a temporary thing until I can find a job and save up some money.

4. I transferred Old Navy's so I now work at the Old Navy at Arbor Place Mall. It's ok, but definitely not as pimpin' as the Athens store! And the one good friend I made at Arbor Place was fired this past week for some bullshit and it shouldn't have happened, but that made me sad, but also made me realize that this job is supposed to be temporary until I can find a real job. So I gotta finish my resume and put it out there!

5. What is it exactly that I want to do!? Good question!!! Receiving my degree in Women's Studies, I learned a hell of a lot, but mostly during this past spring semester in Dr. Moreton's class - Student Activism with some Feminist Economics in there and tied together. We had to do a class project that involved creating our own activist project to get involved on campus. We chose to help change our Free speech code because it was completely unconstitutional and we got some great groundwork done and the administration is considering our proposal and will probably change it! So that is beyond fantastic! What I realized is that I am much more political than I ever thought I was and had SO much fun in this class because I learned so much and seeing changes being made because of what we did is amazing. It also made me realize how fucked up our own system is and how there are some laws/policies that need to change, especially in GA to be more minority friendly (minority here meaning everyone that is not a white male). So all this is to say that I want to be a lobbyist for the state of GA and help some feminist foundations get some policies changed to help the betterment of the residents of our state!

6. On the jazzercise front, all is well! I'm still completely obsessed with it and would love to become an instructor one day! Matter of money though. Too expensive to get trained and certified! One day though! Jazzing in Dville is fun, but I do miss my Oconee jazz ladies and instructors!!

7. Corry got married! That was an insanely fun two weekends (bachelorette and then wedding weekends) and omg! Being a bridesmaid was amazing! Cried, laughed and had a blast. I <3 you Corry! And I still can't believe you've been married over a month now! Crazy!!! :)

8. Been spending most of my free time with Lish, Sage, Alana and Debbie and there is never a dull moment! I love my Dville girls! Hahaha...so crazy and so awesome! They make living back at home bearable because I get to get out of the house and not go insane! Haha! :)

9. I think that's all for this update! Things are going well! Let's just hope I get a for real job soon!!! :)

HOLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so I have to share this awesome story about the Erin McCarely concert with Brett Dennen that I went to with Lish and Nicole. Seriously one of the best nights ever!

The concert is at the Georgia Theatre and after eating some delicious food at Doc Chey's we headed to there. We got a prime spot right up front. Literally standing at the stage. Could've touched the drum set if I wanted to. Love it! We had our beverages in hand and were ready for Erin to begin perfroming! She comes out on stage and plays an amazing set! She's so freaking adorable, wearing the cutest dress ever that no one else could ever pull off, with cute boots and I just love her! Not to mention K.S. Rhoads is awesome on keys and apparently a fantastic beat-boxer! He has some mad skills. When Erin busted out the old school Suzanne Vega, "Tom's Diner," he busted out the beat boxing and it was really awesome. Video coming soon. After she performed Brett Dennen came on since he was headlining (more or less) and he played his set, which was pretty good. A little too much love ballad-y stuff all at once, but overall pretty good! We all had fun to say the least!

Now obviously our ultimate goal is to always meet the one we were there to see, so we were definitely trying to scope out the scene and see if we could find Erin and meet her since we didn't get to at the Hotel Cafe Tour back in October. I went and bought her shirt first because it's cute and I wanted one, then it was the softest thing I've ever touched and so Lish went and got one too. Lol. So we find Erin and K.S. Rhoads both, however both occupied by people, lame. So I inched my way to K.S. and got my picture with him and the 4 of us chatted for a few minutes while we were waiting to meet Erin because the stupid girl that was annoying as shit the entire concert was too drunk to take a picture so it took her 349587394857 years. I seriously wanted to punch her. I digress. So erin looks over and sees us standing there as she's sitting on top of the huge ass speakers. She introduces herself to us and shakes me hand and I tell her I'm Kat. I then of course tell her that she's awesome and if we could get a picture. She invites me to jump up on the speaker. Terrible idea. First because I'm clumsy and uncoordinated. I try to jump up there however it's too tall and I'm too short. FAIL. Then one of the GA Theatre workers tells us to get off of the speakers so Erin brings us up to the front where there is goo lighting. Lol.

So we get pictures and we talk for a little bit. I realize I have to pee something fierce and Erin had also expressed this. We're chatting with Erin about Greg Laswell and she tells us he's one of her BFFs. Then Erin accidently gropes Lish in the boob. Hahaha. How awesome. Then Erin goes on this little rant about how she wishes her boobs would stick out enough for that to happen, how she wishes they were bigger and she said, "I sometimes dream about having bigger boobs. In fact I think I'm going to dream about them tonight." LOL! Then K.S. comes over with 2 ladies and so we listen to them for a few minutes, then a creeper comes to talk to Erin and she clearly doesn't want to talk to him, again, for the fifth time...we tried to leave but didn't want to be rude and not say bye, but she turns to us and whispers "I'm doing the pee pee dance!" So that was her out to get away from creeper. We tell her we'll show her to the bathroom because we all have to go anyways. So we walk her upstairs to the bathroom. Meanwhile in my head I'm thinking, "holy shit, we're going on a potty party with Erin McCarley! We're going to the bathroom with ERIN MCCARLEY!!!!" Lol. And we do. And that's not the best part. She starts talking to us while we're all in our respective stalls...LOL! She goes, "I feel like this is really intimate!" Then Lish, Nicole and I flush at the same time and we hear Erin say, "Ya'll are all flushing and I'm still peeing!" Haha, she was drunk! Too funny! So then we're standing in the bathroom still talking and Nicole asks if they're on a tour bus. Erin says they are and asked us if we had ever seen a tour bus before. And we all concluded that we'd seen buses, but never been inside one. So Erin invites us to go look in their tour bus!!!!! How freaking cool is that!? So we follow her around for a few minutes then we go to the bus! Freaking huge and awesome bus! She gave us the best tour ever and set the ambiance for a good night's sleep in the bunk area. We talked some more and then decided we better go (sadly), so we start walking off the bus, Brett Dennen had gotten on and he is apparently talks with his hands because as I walk by him he smacks me in the face! He immediately apologizes profusely and gives me a hug. Lol. Totally fine! He was super nice about it!

So yeah, we are definitely best friends with Erin McCarley now. How awesome is that!?! Seriously, who can say they went to the potty with her!? Lol! I love it! Such a fun night! :)

Thank you Erin for entertaining us in more ways than one!

So I just read an entry I posted from last year at Christmas and made me thankful for a few reasons. The fact that things do happen for a reason and we are all stronger and better people because of these not so great things that happened. I'm also thankful that we're not still in that same position! Lol. And am just thankful for the experience and that we are still here living life, making good things happen in the world.

Also, it makes me miss Redcoats reading about my last trip and last performance with them. However, I'm glad that I didn't march this year because of a few reasons: new director, not the greatest season we've ever had, and last year we went out with a bang, I feel. And because it gave me lots of extra time to work, get school work done, have some me time and work out at Jazzercise! And I definitely wouldn't have met the people I've met or have been able to do the things I'm doing now if I hadn't made the choice not to march. But don't get me wrong, I'm still SO grateful for my time with Redcoats. Seriously, still to this day it is the coolest thing I've ever done. Wouldn't trade that experience for anything.

Am thankful to have a job and to make (some) money, lol. Makes me feel like I'm doing something other than just sleeping or wasting time. And Jazzercise, makes me feel better about myself and allows me to de-stress in the best way possible. You can't not feel great after that!

So yeah, reading that just made me have these random thoughts and I needed to share. :)

Your Independence Level: High



You are extremely self reliant and autonomous.

You are definitely into doing your own thing.

But you also wouldn't turn down help if you needed it.

You follow your own path, but you don't do so blindly.






Your Dominant Intelligence is Musical Intelligence



Every part of your life has a beat, and you're often tapping your fingers or toes.

You enjoy sounds of all types, but you also find sound can distract you at the wrong time.

You are probably a gifted musician of some sort - even if you haven't realized it.

Also a music lover, you tend to appreciate artists of all kinds.



You would make a great musician, disc jockey, singer, or composer.






You Are 77% Grown Up, 23% Kid



Congratulations, you are definitely quite emotionally mature.

Although you have your moments of moodiness, you're usually stable and level headed.

What Your Taste in Music Says About You



Your musical tastes are intense and rebellious.

You are intelligent... but in a very unconventional way.



You are curious about the world. You love doing something new.

In fact, you enjoy taking risks and doing things most people would shy away from.



You are very physical. It's likely that you're athletic, but not into team sports.

You have the soul of an artist. Beauty and harmony are important to you.



I can dig that....lol.




This one is interesting....


You Should Play the Harp



You are a sensitive soul, with a great admiration for beauty.

You definitely have what it takes to make beautiful music, but most instruments are too harsh for you.



You are subtle, shy, and even a bit spoiled. You're very picky about most aspects of your life.

It's just your style to play an eccentric, hard to transport instrument like the harp that few people consider.



Overall, you have the relaxed demeanor of a leisurely upper class person, and your music would reflect that.

Your calm yet soulful harp playing would be sure to help people forget their troubles for a while.



Your dominant personality characteristic: your zen-ness



Your secondary personality characteristic: your quiet independence





Hahaha...this one is just funny. I agree though. I'd totally be a rock chick!!!


You Are a Chick Rocker!



You're living proof that chicks can rock

You're inspired by Joan Jett and the Donnas

And when you rock, you rock hard

(Plus, you get all the cute guy groupies you want!)





Well this is ironic...lol.


You Are Country Music



You are friendly, down to earth, and fairly conservative.

You are true to your friends and your upbringing. Change is hard for you.

But beneath your old fashioned attitude, you are expressive and artistic in your own way.

Very few people can express pain and pleasure as eloquently as you can.

I'm constantly learning that everything happens for a reason. I've always known this, but it seems that things just keep happening in my life that are a constant reminder of this fact. And where I used to completely shut down and cry and get depressed about it all when things didn't go my way, I think I've finally learned that that is definitely NOT the way to handle a situation. So today, when I received my not so great news, but will probably one day be one the great days in my life because it prevented my from heartache in the future, right now I'm going to just take it in stride. And honestly? I really don't have any other choice at this point. After losing my grandfather 3 weeks ago, it's really made me sit and think about how much of my life I've wasted by being depressed about shit that I don't necessarily need to be depressed about and that if I had just taken it and turned it around to something positive I'd have been a thousand times better, especially in terms of my self- perception as well as how I'm perceived by others and would have saved Lish some ear rapings of me balling my eyes out and drowning in my own self pity when I know she'd have rather pulled a Picasso and chopped off her ears or perhaps even my head...lol. So for that, Lish, I'm sorry...you are truly the bestest best friend ever and I can never repay you for your ability to put up with my shit. Thanks babe!!!

So yeah, I'm not going to see today as negative because seriously after sitting at Jittery Joe's today after my meeting, for about 2 hours and reading Such a Pretty Fat, by Jen Lancaster (Go buy 1 or all of her books. Immesidately. They won't dissapoint!) and just thinking, it really is all positive. And I mean that. I might still have some tears that want to fall, but that's just who I am, and after having a breakdown about my grandfather in said meeting I think I'm allowed because right now that's the one thing I'm allowed to still be upset and depressed about, thought I'm not depressed so much as just sad that he's not here and every time I watch my favorite sitcoms lately it seems as though a relative dies which doesn't help my getting over it any sooner, but that's ok. It's only been 3 weeks and him passing away the day before my birthday and having the funeral on my birthday was really hard, so I'm allowed. But I'm not wallowing in my depression, it's only come once a week for a couple of hours and then I'm fine. So it's OK.

But yeah, so this is a positive experience whether I 100% agree with myself right now or not. I'm about 75% there in knowing and realizing that. It's just when I've had a plan in my head for the past 3 years and have been denied this plan for now the third time, it's kind of a hard hit to know that for real, I'm not going to be heading down that path that I've been striving for for the past 3 years. And so now I find a new path and hopefully finding myself in the process. Not that I haven't already found me, I just have to find an improved me, i suppose and apparently today is the day I start and with my positive outlook I think I'm well on my way.

So yeah, I'm still learning and just taking it all in stride and for once? I'm going to be OK and I've realized that by myself for the first time without someone else helping me and that is a victory in itself. GO ME!!!!! Hahaha...ok now I'm just lame. And that means I'm about to start rambling, which I'm doing now and you're going to stop reading, so I'm going to go now since I need to anyways. :)

So with all of that said...I'm out. Like Trina. And she's a badass and you don't mess with her.

HOLLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


P.S. I lied, I'm not done yet. I want to share with you peeps a new word I'm going to incorporate into my daily conversations. In reading Jen Lancaster I've come across many, but this one is my new favorite b/c I laughed a lot at Jittery Joe's and I'm sure everyone in there asked why that girl sitting by the window is laughing like that. So yeah, you're all going to learn to accept this new word (read: get over the fact I'm going to use it) and that I'll be laughing hysterically every time I say it. ASS-MUNCH. AH HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

P.P.S. I'm for real done now :)
