Everything Went Better Than Expected
weareconfident: Today in my first period class I had to (finally) present something of my own that I had written. I had been dreading this presentation for a week. I was supposed to do it last Thursday, but it didn’t work out, then it was pushed to Friday, but my boyfriend got in an accident so I stayed with him all day. So the date was pushed to today. I was terrified. My professor asked me to...
It's Different This Time Around
The thing about the relationship I’m anxious. I love him more and more every single day. I love the way he smiles, the way he makes me feel. I love his sense of humour. I even love his scary, fast driving. I love his laugh, I love how he holds me. I love the person he makes me want to be. I want to be better because of him. Because of him I understand the flaws I’ve been living with...
weareconfident: I truly believe that over thinking ruins out. We all know that it does and yet we all still do it. We obsess over the tiniest things and before you know it we’re in a panic questioning things we’ve known for a long time. How do we stop it? How do we stop spending our nights in panic? How do we keep ourselves from spending hours on Google trying to find out posts that help us...
I feel used by people. I fee like people take from me and then forget all the things I’ve done for them. This has nothing to do with my boyfriend, he’s been fantastic to me. This is about my friends. The people that I do everything for. The people I’ve picked up from school and work when no one else could. The people that I took time off studying for because their boyfriend...
It’s hard to pinpoint all the things that I love about you. I just do. I look at you and I just know. I look at you doing something and I realize that I love it. Or seeing you do something that annoys me, I know that I can look passed it and “live with it.” I love the way that you tap the steering wheel to your favourite songs and sing along lightly. I love the way you call me...
I have always been envious of those with talent or intelligence. Those who can draw you anything in complete beautiful, striking detail. Those who know math and science like they know the back of their hand. People who can take a picture worth looking at, or write something worth reading. I have always been envious of those people. I feel that I don’t measure up. Then I realized that my...
One of my least favourite qualities about myself is that I get angry so easily. I’m such a sensitive and emotional person that even the tiniest of things can set me off. I don’t like being this way because then I get angry at the wrong people. I always feel bad about it, too. I will say something in a mean tone or in a way that I didn’t intend and then I feel bad about it. I go...
Chivalry isn’t dead. It’s just lost in a mess of Jagermeister, baggy pants and a poor excuse for hip-hop music.
It’s funny how everything changes when you’re finally with someone that you want to be with. Your entire life changes and even your take on relationships. I am in a relationship in which I can tell my boyfriend anything. I literally mean anything. I can tell him embarrassing stories from my past relationships or tell him my greatest fears. He is someone that I trust and confide 100...
I think I was just relationship shamed.
I have another blog that is basically for “shenanigans”. It’s a blog that I just post random pictures and posts. It’s not much of anything. I moved all my writing to this blog so I had a designated spot for it. I had an anonymous person send me a message on that blog telling me that they thought I was an intelligent and interesting girl, but were concerned I would become...
So long, Shine.
I’m finally getting a new cell phone! I’m quite excited about it, to be honest. I have had the same LG Shine slide phone for about 3 years. I have loved it, but for the career path I wish to take it just doesn’t have what I need. I need something with better e-mail access, faster internet access and not so loud “clicky” keys when I text. I don’t think...
wecanbebestfriends asked: Just seen your reply to my ask now. I have more questions! :D lol Have any favourite authors or books? I really enjoy books that paint a picture in my head. Have you taken any courses or classes on descriptive writing? I used to hate English classes right from grade 7 to 10 but as soon as I did descriptive writing in grade 11 I fell in love with writing :)
I can't hate the ones that made me.
I heard that title in a You Me At Six song. I really liked it and it got me thinking. I am where I am due to the fact that I have had successful relationships, romantic and non-romantic, and ones that have failed. The ones that have failed had me angry for years, but without them I wouldn’t be where I am. If it weren’t for the friends that betrayed me I wouldn’t be where I am....
wecanbebestfriends asked: Just curious, when did you get into writing? What made you want to become a writer?
I fear in my life that I will always be second best. I fear that nothing I do will ever measure up. I fear that I will never do anything incredible or worthy of other peoples time. I want to be a writer. I want to be an author, more specifically. I want to write something that people can relate to. I want to be a writer that can evoke emotion from people. I want to write something where people...
Goodbye, Old. Hello, Perfect.
Close to 5 years ago I started high school and was stuck being an awkward kind of lonely 14 year old, much like anyone. I met a boy who was about 3 years older than me and I really started to like him. He was all I wanted, and he seemed perfect. I was so set on the idea of a relationship and so optimistic about the outcome of me telling him how I truly felt. I wrote him a 7 page letter, I am aware...
He's pure magic.
So I did tell that guy how I felt about him and it actually has worked in my favour. He an I have been dating for about a month and a half and it’s going really well. I think he’s positively fantastic. He’s got the best smile ever. When I say something he thinks is cute or funny he gets this adorable smile that just consumes his whole face. Just thinking about it makes my heart...

I am going to touch on something that is a tad controversial. I want to talk about religion. I was raised as Christian-United and I’m proud of it. I’m not entirely sure what my religious views are as of right now, but I most certainly believe in a higher power. What I don’t like is, and I see this a lot on this website, is people using religion as a scare tactic. People who...
I’ve never understood why it is in a music fandom that people feel the need to fight. The point of music is, in my opinion, to bring people together. Music has brought me some incredible friends that I may not have otherwise met. Yet for some reason people feel the make it a competition. It’s a competition for who has the most merchandise, who has seem the band more, who’s met...
What would you do?
I’m in the stage of liking someone where I am unsure of what to do. I like him, I know that for sure. I don’t know if he likes me. It seems like he does. The thing is that I find him hard to read. He has a beautiful personality and we have basically everything in common, but I can never tell if he feels the same about me or if he’s just being nice. It’s simple for me to sit...
Having not been in a relationship for a year and a bit has made me forget what it’s like. Sure, I long for a relationship. I find myself constantly wishing for one and imagining them in my head, but when it comes to one I don’t know how to be a girlfriend. Perhaps I’ve just been with the wrong boys. Considering how my last two relationships ended I think that’s pretty safe...
I forgot that I had this blog, so I’ve come back on to post a few of my drafts from before. I didn’t post anything while I was waiting for my professor to mark my first post. May the swarm of old posts begin!
Innovation at the Office
The room is tense. You could cut the tension with a knife. Everyone is staring at one another hoping someone will go first. The pressure is building and the pressure to do well is overwhelming. These are the feelings one might have during a business meeting or even on a busy day within an office. It doesn’t have to be this way. A business is a group effort. Everyone contributes to the company the...
My name is Katie, or Kate, and I have created this blog as a way to get my voice heard and hopefully help people in anyway that I can. I truly believe in the power of music and words, I like to listen to music, read and write as much as I can. I am currently in school to become a journalist, but I would love to one day become a published author. Thank you for visiting my blog!
