I started a blog for quotes I've collected through the years (momentsinreading.tumblr.com) , but then I realized I had other things I wanted to share besides quotes, so...this. I'm in my 20s, living in the US, and I like lots of things: Arrested Development, Sherlock Holmes, history, The Beatles, archaeology, reading, Harry Potter, tea, Agatha Christie, Muppets, art/art history, Jane Austen, Bob's Burgers, architecture, my family, Star Wars, Disney, and LOST. This blog will be all of the above and more.
Nickname: Well Katy is actually short for Kathryn, so….Katy? And Kate by family and close friends
Birthday: June 16th
Sexuality: I like to say heteroflexible - I have only been attracted to men in the past but I’m not going to discount about half the population based on gender/gender identity.
Time zone: EST
What time and date is it there: 9-1-2014 and it’s 8:51 pm
Average hours of sleep I get each night: About 6-7 usually
The last thing I Googled was: A list of US Presidents
First word that comes to mind: crickets. literally, they’re all I can hear right now
What I last said to a family member: ”it’s too far away!” (the internet hotspot when my mom wanted to know why it was being so slow)
One place that makes me happy and why: A quiet beach, anywhere, at sunset. Growing up in MI we were surrounded on 3 sides by huge freshwater lakes and you’re never farther than about 2 hours from one, and there are also smaller lakes up the wazoo spotting the whole state so really you’re usually only 30 minutes to a lake or river. So a lot of my happier summer memories involve either cabins or camping with my family by a body of water and we would go watch the sunset if we were in the west and it’s just so wonderful and beautiful and I love it.
How many blankets I sleep under: right now it’s none. Summer. I used to need to sleep with at least a sheet or something but I got over it in college when I lived in an apartment in Detroit with no A/C for a summer
Favorite beverage: tea. and gin. but not together
The last movie i watched in the cinema was: Guardians of the Galaxy
Three things I can’t live without: my family. the beach/proximity to water. books.
Something I plan on learning: how museums use social media to support their efforts (hoping to go to grad school next year for museum studies)
A piece of advice for all my followers: if you’re in a relationship that doesn’t make you happy or isn’t giving you what you need but you’re scared to break up because of one thing or another, just have an honest conversation with your s/o and then either part ways or really work on your relationship. Don’t live in that limbo. If you break up it may be scary and you may be sad but ultimately it’s for the best.
You have to listen to this song: 'Sie liebt dich/She Loves You' by The Beatles because it’s so cool to hear this famous song in a different way. Also this amazing sonata for cello by Zoltán Kodály. I love cellos and this piece is just amazing.

Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).
But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.
So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”
I’m feeling really bummed out about the passing of Robin Williams.
