katie louisa


HELLO INTERNET. My name is Katie (or "Kathryn" if you're my dad, or just some douche who thinks a full name equals feminine professionalism). I am a writer, poet, comedian, and god-shaped (ass)hole from Chicago. Clinically depressed and LOVING IT♥ ♥ ♥!!!! I like all the typical girly stuff including: scathing reality, emptiness, puppy baskets, kitten friends, film, activism, music, stuff, things, Patrick Stump to fill the gaping holes in my heart and make my ovaries glow like the stones in Temple of Doom, and baby egg rolls.

Since adolescence I have struggled to find the meaning in being alive and stake my claim on a purpose. After ten years and countless broken hearts it's clear that the funniest thing about my "purpose" is that I don't have one outside of creating drinking games to Nic Cage movies. This is the self-indulgent art created and/or reblogged to cope with that. It won't always be roses, but it will be OK to laugh. Please enjoy the fruits of my sadness and I hope you enjoy my blog! I have included my resume below this blurb. Please enjoy.

PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE / ACCOLADES: Book-It pizza party, Brownies patches, 6th grade Honor Roll, 7th grade Honor Roll, 8th grade Honor Roll, those soccer trophies that everybody got even if you sucked at soccer, two 3rd place equestrian ribbons, a couple vagina-pity speech medals, a TV won at my Jr. prom after party, Life (from my mom), and a green stripe in Taekwondo.

John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats joins Fresh Air to talk about his new novel, Wolf in White Van, his dark adolescence, and the best part of his job: 

"I hang out and sign records for an hour or two hours every night and I like to hear as many people’s stories as I can, because if somebody wants to share their story with me, I want to honor that. … But if you’re hearing a bunch of [stories], it gets very intense. It’s a lot.

I feel a duty. … I really think there’s a lot of music you can use to heal and save yourself. It’s not like I have some magic power and I reached inside somebody and said, “Oh, you didn’t know this about yourself until I wrote this song.” That’s not true. What I did is I made a thing, and somebody who needed to find something found mine and chose to meet me out on that ground.

It’s this area of communication that is unique to music, I think. That’s a choice that the listener makes to share that part of themselves with the artist who hopefully shared part of himself. … It’s very intense to have those sorts of conversations, have people sharing stuff that may be a secret, but I try to be worthy of it. It’s an honor. I’ve worked a lot of jobs — this is the best one.”

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!

Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution
it’s really scary
it’s really infuriating
it’s really exhausting

I am ugly - I am beautiful

I am worthless - I have worth

I am sick - I will heal

I hate myself - I will learn to love myself

I am weak - I am strong, or I wouldn’t be here today

I am moody - I have profound emotional depth

I am lost - I will find myself

I am scared - I have courage

I am crazy - It is normal to struggle

I am in pain - It’s okay to hurt

I am tired - I will not give up

I’m not good enough - I am better than “good enough”

I can’t change - I can change
