Hello! I’m Katie, a Journalism student at Colorado State University, a self-directed learner, a world traveler, a happy person, and so much more.

Interesting! Tell me more!

I spent my high school years unschooling after experimenting with homeschooling, worldschooling, private school and public school. Travel is a passion of mine, so I traveled through Latin America for the first half of 2016, the perfect way to end my high school experience. I am now a sophomore at Colorado State University, where I am studying Journalism and Women’s Studies. Aside from studying, I keep busy as the features editor for the school’s magazine, College Avenue.

My larger focus, other than passing my classes and producing a beautiful magazine, is self-care. Self-care can take on many different forms. Sometimes self-care is a spontaneous adventure in the mountains, trekking through mud to find the perfect fall color. Sometimes it is a quiet weekend in bed with a face mask and book of poetry. Self-care in our crazed world is the only way to stay sane and keep on marching forward, and as a dear friend once told me, this is the time of, “babes doing it for ourselves.” Glance back at my blog posts and you’ll see how it has manifested for me over the years.

There have been some pretty cool adventures and opportunities, so make sure to check back in, in order to keep up with all that has and is about to happen!
