My name's Katie! I'm 19 years old, and post a lot about food, running, climbing, my thoughts, and things that make me stop to think or laugh.

I take mental health seriously, and post about that as well.

I absolutely adore meeting new people, so don't feel afraid to say hello or ask me questions.

 

NaNoWriMo

Would it be bad to not do NaNoWriMo this year? Things are hard with school, work, and a social life taking up so much time. I don’t see when I could write. Or should I just let myself know I’m not going to get anywhere near winning but do it anyway just so I can join the fun and then continue the story in December when I’ll have more time? I could challenge myself the 50k in 30 days to see. I dunno. Thoughts?

I went on an adventure today with a couple friends who were also left behind at school for Thanksgiving this year. We went exploring for a beach, but mostly just hiked… If you can even call it that. We slid down over some small cliffs, and fell in mud. I was a mess by the end of it. But I got a lot of pictures. This one was toward the beginning.

I was recently sorted into a house on Pottermore and was shocked to find out where I was placed. I’m not quite sure I believe this hat.. but think I should because JK Rowling is the one who thinks this test is accurate. I’m going to buy my own set of the books soon so that I can finally read the entire series and decide for myself what house I should be in- all the while, considering the accuracy of the test.

I believed to be Slytherin 53% …. 27% chance of being in Ravenclaw… 13% chance of Gryffindor… and 7% chance of Hufflepuff. I really thought I’d be sorted into Slytherin. I thought that I was a Slytherin. But nope. According to the sorting hat, I am a Hufflepuff. I’ve never even considered that I would be a Hufflepuff. I was shocked. It made me sad… but I read the description about Hufflepuffs that was given on the site after the sorting, and maybe I am a Hufflepuff.

The thing is, I have this image of myself that I am this “strong, stand up for herself, don’t give a shit about anyone else” kind of girl. I wouldn’t sacrifice my own happiness for someone else…. but that’s bullshit. I know, because I do it all the time. Every day, I’m put in a situation where I have to do something for someone else that takes away my happiness for the particular thing. I don’t want to do it, but I do, because I want to make it easier for the person. So I guess I am a Hufflepuff.

There is one part in the description of Hufflepuff that stood out to me the most, and that was the part about the badgers. “Our emblem is the badger, an animal that is often underestimated, because it lives quietly until attacked, but which, when provoked, can fight off animals much larger than itself, including wolves.” (http://images5.fanpop.com/image/photos/24900000/Hufflepuff-Welcome-Message-pottermore-24996733-1262-2093.jpg) I think that this is the most accurate description of myself that I could possibly find. This one part of why Hufflepuffs are awesome, is why I’m choosing to own up to this sorting… but I will still finish reading the series so I will know for sure.
