Indie Kat

Hello!  I’m Kat, the person behind this blog.

This photo isn’t a very accurate representation of my life, but I do look really pretty, so up it goes.  I’ll post a more true-to-life picture as soon as I find one that’s equally flattering (so, never).  The photo was taken on a practice shoot by my friend Christine, who is a fantastic photographer and has an equally fantastic blog, Home, Made.  But this page is supposed to be about me, so…

I suppose I’m a typical twenty-something trying to find my way in the world.  I read once that you don’t find yourself, you create yourself, and that’s partly what this blog is about: creating the self and the life I truly want, full of things and people and experiences that make me happy.  Right now that includes a lot of baking, but I also love art, art history, travel, reading, craft beer and yoga, all of which you’ll read about eventually.  I also really love autumn, horror movies, coffee, Denver, 90’s rap, dinosaurs and things that are teal, but you probably won’t hear about those too much.

I live in Denver (and as I mentioned, I LOVE it) with two cats named Timor and Sophie.  I currently work as a teacher assistant at a school for kids with special needs, meaning both behavioral and developmental challenges.  Before that I worked as a counselor in a residential treatment center for youth with conduct disorders.  My job is intense and I have a lot of scars (seriously…my biggest one is from when I got bit on my arm) but I really, really love it.  I was a journalism major in college but I hope to go back to grad school for social work next year.

I’m vegetarian, liberal (not a Democrat) and ferociously independent, but I’m also strangely domestic: I love to cook, bake, sew, thrift, and be generally crafty.  I like Etsy and Anthropologie.  I hate babies.  I wear an apron in the kitchen.  I’ve travelled the world.  I feel like these things are somehow at odds.  Is that weird?  I guess they’re not really…and I also think there are other people like me out there.  If you’re one of them, this blog is for you.

So…do you feel like we’re friends yet?  Because I want to be your friend.  I bet you’re neat.  I hope you’ll share your thoughts and ideas with me, and I’ll keep sharing my thoughts with you.  Together we’ll create a vibrant, joyful and interesting life.  Let’s do this.

    So, let’s – where did you go? I have checked back to your blog, but it’s been quiet for the past 9-10 months or so. Looking forward to seeing more posts at some point!
