Hi everybody, I'm Kate!

I'm twenty-one and a senior in college. I love to write (obviously) but I'm pretty sure I spend more time thinking about writing than I actually spend writing. I'm five feet and ten inches tall, so the first thing I do after developing a celebrity crush is Google his height. I love overcast skies and cats and sweaters and baking cookies, because I'm actually an elderly woman trapped in a teenager's body. I'm addicted to Candy Crush (level 827 and counting). I can't sing to save my life. I hate speaking in front of crowds. I think French accents are funny, especially when paired with false mustaches and tiny berets. And I'm sort of hoping that someday, writing will be more than just a pastime for me.
