Hi, I’m Kellie!
My love for writing and creating things started when I was pretty young. 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, for example, 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 day-dreamer with a desire to be creative.
I’m currently in my senior year of college as a communication major and creative writing minor. I find it ironic that I’ve found myself as a communication major. I’m socially anxious and I hate public speaking. But as I’ve mentioned, I love writing and this is the only major at my school that really encompassed that for me. But all that aside I’d say that I’m doing pretty great at it for being a socially anxious introvert.
How this blog was born…
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.
My blog has become a mesh of different niches. I write about things that are happening in my life, about my lifestyle, about music that ignites passion in me, about The Bachelor, and about beauty and fashion occasionally. It can seem chaotic sometimes, but hey that’s life, right?
I want to share with the world is that you should follow your path, not what other people think you should follow. Even if your path is unpaved and an unconventional place to walk through, walk it. I believe the ultimate goal of life 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 settled for. And I want to encourage others to do that, too, and just embrace the chaos that is life.
