today i made mammaw look beautiful.
Mel and I went to the funeral home today and I did her makeup and Mel did her hair. The funeral director, Andrew did an amazing job preparing her and we thought she looked great to begin with. But she looked fabulous once we got done with her, and just like herself. Mel was so happy. And I was so happy to have been able to do that. I got to talk to Andrew a lot about his experience as a funeral...
…to make an end is to make a beginning.– T.S. Eliot
I spent the day planning mammaw's funeral.
Tomorrow one of my dreams are coming true. I have always wanted to work in a funeral home and tomorrow at 2:00 I am going to the funeral home and doing mammaw’s makeup. We called the woman who has done mammaw’s hair for forever to see if she wanted to come and do her hair but she was having a really hard time with her death and said it would be too hard for her. She told Mel exactly...

My birth father accidentally caught my purse on fire tonight. It was hilarious. Luckily I put the fire out before it burnt down the house.
8th Grade Premonition
Whenever I come home I spend about an hour the first night rummaging through my walk in closet which is practically a time capsule. Tonight I found a small box full of old school photos of my friends from middle school and high school. Most of them have small notes written on the back. Jenny Dolsen’s from 8th grade said: “Kate, you’ve been one of my best friends since 7th. I...
i might not have made it home with my luggage...
…but I did make it home with a boy’s number and a promise of a date when we get back to LA.
I have learned NEVER to plan a trip around a boy because once the trip gets here, the boy will no longer be in your life and you will be stuck in California by yourself for the weekend you were supposed to spend with him and then you get a call saying that your grandma might die before monday so you buy a one way ticket and leave ASAP and pray that when you talk to her on the phone tonight it...
love letters from a ghost.
Something made me take The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway out of my bookcase. I opened the cover and gasped. Inside was a letter written on the back of the cover. Kat, First of all happy Birthday. I am so happy we’ve had the chance to spend two of them together, even though I celebrate you everyday already. Secondly, this here, this book, if I’ve ever bought you anything...

My grandma’s Leukemia has progressed to Acute Leukemia and they have given her 3 months to a year to live. She is my grandma on my birthmother’s side. I’ve only known her for 6 years and that isn’t enough time. Some people say I am lucky to have found them early enough to have met her but it’s bullshit that he has to die. I’m not done getting to know her. AND a...

Because I’ll get the same reaction I do when I say I’m an artist but it will be more entertaining (for me).
stellakasper: All of a sudden I find myself drinking cheap beer. Not for the taste of it so much as for the solidarity of it. And at the end of the night I get a hug from a friend, and a whisper saying, “You are my favorite.” An old crush tells me how glad he is to have me in his life. Nothing is different, yet everything’s all alright.
so the craziest thing happened.
I got home and there was an email from eharmony saying someone requested to fast track message me. His name is Tyson. I accepted. It turns out that it is my best friend from high school’s older brother who I had a MAJOR crush on back in the day. I reconnected with her recently cause she lives in CA too and she told me her brother lives in LA. I got all excited until she said he had a...
