My name is Kat, short for “KATHRYN MARIE GET DOWNSTAIRS RIGHT NOW,” (Mom).
A former Philadelphian and quasi-nomad, I’ve called New Orleans “home” for the past three years. While living in the Crescent City, I had the supreme luck and privilege of running around with kids and adults for a living.
Sometimes, I trained for crazy races.
Occasionally, I wrote essays about running in said crazy races.
But most days, I found myself next to the bayou, sprawled out in the grass, pondering the complexities of life and screw-top wine bottles with friends.
I love many things, including, but not limited to: coffee, sunshine, peanut butter, kids, laughing, brass bands, glitter, and people.
Chicago is my *very* recent place of residence and where I am pursuing my Masters in Social Work.
This– the letters, the pictures, the !!! and amazingness of people–
is my June Project.
