Hi, I’m Kate and welcome to my blog! I’m a 21 year old college student living amongst farmland, yearning for the city life.
When I’m not planning out my non-existent (and highly unrealistic) NYC apartment on Pinterest, I am majoring in Mass Communication. I am passionate about social media and the way in which companies and brands use it to communicate their message. I especially admire the way Shonda Rhimes has dominated Thursday night TV with #TGIT on ABC and the influence her shows have on trends in pop culture.
Another one of my passions in life is travel.
I would describe travel as exciting, exhausting, inspiring, and fun. It has taught me patience (ex. Florida is fun but six hour flight delays in a Florida airport are not) and it has taught me how to adapt to change within a moments notice (ex. sprinting through the streets of Chicago to catch a train).
Travel sparks creativity in my everyday life. It has helped me strengthen my independence. So far, my greatest travel accomplishment has been being able to confidently say that I know the DC Metro like the back of my hand. Of course, this confidence with public transportation did not come so easily. It took a couple wrong trains and poor cell service to navigate my way around that one.
It’s not always easy and may not be fun 100% of the time, but traveling is a learning experience. It’s something to be shared, talked about, and for some, dreamt about.
Here’s to the travels my wilder mind takes me on…
