I'm really not good with introductions.
"Hi, how are you? I'm fine, thank you for asking. It's a pleasure to meet you."
How impersonal, how ordinary. I'd really like to not be impersonal, and especially not ordinary.
So hello, friend, my name is Katie Jo, commonly referred to as Katie Josephine. I drink coffee like water and practically eat books because they're much more interesting than food. Leggings, button ups, and over sized sweaters are taking over my closet. My iPod is constantly playing a mix of The Lumineers, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Imagine Dragons, Phillip Phillips, Lana Del Rey, and Birdy. My heart is bound to the woods and headed for the mountains. I have a weird fascination with birds and trees, I have no idea why, although I think it has something to do with their being closer to the sky than me. My camera is somewhat glued to my side, but no more than my notebook; either way it's probably unhealthy. You may have seen my lookbooks around- an idea I came up with to express and vent my creativity for your enjoyment. I'd be happy to explore the world with my notebook and camera and nothing else, but I do suppose I would miss my loved ones. Home isn't a place, it's a feeling, it's a warmth that cannot be replaced. I hope to one day see my name in print, on the cover of my novel. It's really wonderful to be here, and I'm so happy the Fernweh girls asked me to contribute in this new year. Don't be afraid to say hi, okay?
