I made another personal page about me. It's really just a place holder for when my photography gallery goes up. Check out www.katherinelaine.com if you're interested and keep checking it if you'd like to see my photography in the future! Thanks. ..... ever feel like you're talking to your imaginary friends......

Saturday night I went to a barn dance with a girl friend of mine. She called me up because she didn't want to go alone, but she wanted to see the boy she likes. Mostly I went because I like hanging out with her and I wanted to be there for her, BUT I've got to say, I had a grand time! I didn't know how much I like to square dance! Oh Mylanta! It was a riot. We also did some line dancing and swing dancing. Although, I didn't do much of the swing because I don't know much about it. It looked like a blast though. I was sort of hoping this guy who sat next to me would ask, but nope. Even though I only knew my friend and her parents, I had a really good time, which is unusual for me. I really hope I get to do that more often! Later ya'll!

I arrived in Ohio with dreams of a life of excitement. After all, my brother's life sounded exciting from over the phone. His friends were fun and his church dynamic! Much to my disappointment, Ohio wasn't the place I had imagined it to be. A dry job, an over-religious church, and a town who's most exciting place to be was Wal-Mart. I did, however, make a friend that would change my life. My favorite little person, Ethan. My nephew. He was four months old when I first showed up. A miniature replica of his father. To make an already long story short, I learned the value and importance of keeping home and being a mom. I decided that a college degree wouldn't be of much use to me. I still study and educate myself so I can raise up smart kids. Instead of college, I will spend time learning how to manage a household and other such related matters. Cooking, sewing/knitting, home decoration, home business management, and how to teach among others. I'm also learning how to be more feminine. I've found ladiesagainstfeminism.org to be a useful site. So, I guess that's the jest of the story. I'm excited to see how God will use me!

I've never had a real desire to go off to college and earn a degree. When I graduated from high school, I entered the work force. For two years I enjoyed serving coffee to the half-awake folks of Parkland. During this time I took a couple classes to pursue hobbies that interested me. Namely, acting and film-making. I spent much time volunteering as a youth leader at my church as well as teaching preschoolers during MOPS twice a month. I never pursued any activities that could advance me "up the corporate latter", so to speak. I had imagined that I would meet someone and get married and my life would begin. After a year and a half of feeling that I 'wasn't going anywhere' I moved to Ohio to spend time with my brother and his family. They suggested it earlier, but it never occurred to me to take action. Until one day, it did. I had nothing holding me back, and I was longing for adventure. A new life, a chance to start over was the thought rolling around in my head. I was pretty sure I'd be back, but the possibilities were endless! TO BE CONTINUED...
