love's right behind you

I'm Katie. I love my family. My friends. Volleyball. Music helps me get out of bed each day. Literally. My favorite color is blue. This blog is dedicated to great music, beautiful people, and funny things to get you through the day. Enjoy the little things in life.

follow me & I'll follow you.

Happiness begins with you. Not with your relationship, your friends, or your job. But with you.

Every Character I LoveJessica Day (New Girl)

“I brake for birds. I rock a lot of polka dots. I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours. I spend my entire day talking to children, and I find it fundamentally strange that you’re not a dessert person, that’s just weird and it freaks me out! And I’m sorry I don’t talk like Murphy Brown, and I hate your pant suit, I wish it had ribbons on it or something to make it just slightly cuter. And that doesn’t mean I’m not smart, and tough, and strong! And my checks have baby farm animals on them, bitch!”

  1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”

  2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.

  3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.

  4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.

  5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.

  6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.

  7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.

  8. Because feminists just need to chill out.

  9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.

  10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.

There’s a fucking womanifesto for you.

I like beginnings because they’re so full of promise. The first page of a book, the first day of a job, the first time you buy yourself flowers, the first date with a new man, the first touch, the first kiss, the first kick of a good liquor, the first moment you hold your own baby. I like beginnings because I know there’s always more to come.

You will be shocked, kids, when you discover how easy it is in life to part ways with people forever.

That’s why, when you find someone you want to keep around, you do something about it.
