Hi, I'm Kellie!

My love for writing and creating things started when I was pretty young. I remember I had notebooks filled with stories and drawings to accompany them and it was something I always found to be fun. When I wasn't writing some story about puppies or Mickey Mouse, I spent my time either playing teacher or house because I liked the idea of someday being a teacher and a mom. Some of those dreams have changed since I've gotten older, like I could never be a teacher, and some have stayed the same, like wanting to be a mom. But something that has stayed consistent my whole life is being an avid daydreamer with a desire to be creative.

I'm currently in my junior year of university as a communications major and creative writing minor. The ironic thing about me being a communications major is that I hate public speaking, small talk, and interpersonal relationships just are not my forte - but all that aside I'd say that I'm doing pretty great at it for being a complete introvert and having anxiety.

I started this blog in August of 2017 as part of my journey of finding myself and finding what I really want to do with my life. Excited is an understatement for how I feel when I think about where I am right now and where I'm headed in my life and my career.

The message that I want to share with the world is that you should follow the path that you want to follow and not what other people think you should follow - even if your path is unpaved and an unconventional place to walk through. Because at the end of the day the ultimate goal is to just be happy, and I've never been one to settle for 'good enough' with anything - friends, relationships, choices, etc. I want to live a life that I love and that I chose rather than setteled for.
