The Day is Done by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The day is done, and the darkness Falls from the wings of Night, As a feather is wafted downward From an eagle in his flight. I see the lights of the village Gleam through the rain and the mist, And a feeling of sadness comes o’er me That my soul cannot resist: A feeling of sadness and longing, That is not akin to pain, And resembles sorrow only As the mist resembles the rain. Come, read...

All I Get
I ask for assistance, But I get no help. I ask for guidance, But I still feel so lost. I ask for friendship, But all I get is enemies. I ask for understanding, But I’m still confused. I ask for patience, But I still feel anxious. I ask for love, But all I get is hate. I ask for happiness, But all I get is disappointment.
Off The Shelf (Kat's Book Recommendations)
Here are some of my reading recommendations. These aren’t in any particular order. 1. Anything by William Shakespeare. Do I really need to elaborate? Shakespeare is classic material. Some of my favorites are Twelfth Night, Macbeth, Othello, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Much Ado About Nothing and of course Romeo and Juliet. 2. The Shack by William P. Young. An amazing, emotional...

A Note on "A Note"
My post entitled “A Note on Bullying” was not meant to offend anyone. It was not meant to bring up old arguments or situations. It was written in an informative spirit. I wrote that post to let people know the effects that teasing and bullying can have on someone. Whether it was a one-time incident or an on-going issue. It was also written to let people, who are being bullied or...
Have You Ever Just Wanted To...?
Have you ever read a book and just wanted to punch one of the characters in the face? Well, I’ve been reading one of my favorite authors, Jane Austen and there are a lot of characters in her books who I just want to hit. In Emma, there are Mr. & Mrs. Elton, but mostly the latter. In Sense and Sensibility, it’s Mrs. John Dashwood (also referred to as “Fanny”), Mr....

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers...– Rumi
This is a poem I wrote when I was a freshman in high school. It was originally for an English project. It’s about the day my father died and how people thought I should feel rather than how I really felt about it. I woke up this morning, Everything was fine. I went to school, Everything was fine. I socialized with friends, Everything was fine. I went home, It wasn’t fine. He’s...

Some of which are repeated from my “A Few Things to Know About Kat” post. - I was born on August 26th in Melrose Park, IL. - I’m very quiet until I get to know someone (also read as I suffer from Social Anxiety Disorder). Some people might view it as me being stuck up or thinking I’m better than other people. - It’s...
A Note on Bullying
I touched on this subject a little bit the other day, but I wanted to go a little bit deeper with this. I’ve needed to get some of this stuff off my chest for quite a while now and I think it’s time I finally said something. ***If you get offended by this you might want to check for a guilty conscience.*** As I’ve said in a previous post, I didn’t really have many...

Well, Honor Society also happens to have free music for their fans. They started what they call their “Honor System” a few months ago and at the time they were putting a new...

A Few Things to Know About Kat.
Here are a few things you should know about me. Just a warning, though, these can be considered kind of heavy topics. 1. I am EXTREMELY shy, actually I suffer from S.A.D. (Social Anxiety Disorder). I don’t talk very much and it is very hard for me to open up to people. If I do open up to you, that means I trust you and I tend to talk more too. The people who I open up to are really the...
