I’d like to learn how to play the piano. Sooner rather than later.

who’s that girl?

While attending a social media event this morning, I got to thinking again how the online world has seeped into every single part of my life. My job. My relationships. My social life. A creative outlet…a tool for discovery. Which made me wonder further (I was paying attention to the panel, I swear!) if I’d even be the person I am today if it didn’t exist.

This was the first picture I ever uploaded to FB. The birth of the ‘online me’… Would my image be the same if not for my online experiences? I say this because I feel so deeply connected to this form of media vs. TV, magazines, etc.

This is me today. Now, I’ve always been a chameleon of sorts, but how did I get from point A to point B? Thoughts?

You knew I’d slip in a ‘what I wore today’ pic at some point.

let them eat meat

 

Well, the cat (or should I say the chicken?) is out of the bag. I’m eating meat.

That’s right… after 10+ years of being a vegan/vegetarian, I’ve given up. Given in to my barbaric instincts. Thrown my eco-friendly, animal-loving tendencies out the window. Or have I? Follow me on a journey between ‘Kate, you’re making a bigger deal out of this than you need to’ and ‘Kate, this decision dictates who you are and what you believe in’…

I didn’t just wake up one morning and mow down on a drumstick. It was actually really, really hard to make the switch.  The weird thing is, the decision I made back int he day to go vegetarian was pretty damn easy. Help animals, help the environment, be healthy. Done and done. Can I still do those things if I eat cute little animals?

I want to be strong, vibrant, and socially-aware. I feel this change in my lifestyle will lead me there. First and foremost, I’ll say this. FACTORY FARMING IS BAD BAD BAD.  There are many reasons I’m choosing to go carnivore, but please note that my plans include local, organic, sustainable farming. My money is going to local farms that are doing it right. I can still be all the things I want to be and not feel like a total hypocrite.

Why am I sharing this with you? Well, it’s a big life decision, much like getting a tattoo or chopping off my hair (hear me out.) Being vegetarian was so much a part of my ‘me’. People assume certain things about you when you assign a label to yourself (republican, rastafarian, Gleek).  So now, I guess I’ll just have to find other ways to let people know who I am. I’ll worry about that later. For now, just welcome me back to the circle of life.

Noxious Donna: derby muse?

It must be the pink tights. I thought I’d share with you the adventures of my derby persona via kick-ass art. Thanks to the awesome artists who made my life-long dream of being a comic book heroine come true.

Here’s the latest one:

And of course, don’t forget this one by the lovely Danica McKiller:

And this bout poster from intrepid guest blogger Aaron:

FTW!

Belles and Sirens brought home a double victory from Columbus Ohio. I’m so proud of our league!

Here are some pics from Dr. X:

When we play away bouts, we wear white jerseys.

Look at that fierce pack!

Here it comes…

i gots the fever

tattoo fever, that is. it’s been a while since I last got inked

When I first got my shoulder tattoo, I went back and forth (and back and forth) on whether to get it colored in or not. I think I’ve finally decided to leave it B + W (my mom is so happy right now). I would however like to add more to the existing piece. There’s a big ‘white space’ on the back of my arm that I feel needs something.

Trying to compliment to the whole feminine-naturey theme, here’s one idea I have…

I love coffee, tea, and old vintage items…

stop it! stop being so damn cute!

I love reading blogs about fashion, design, greening, diy, tattoos, and weddings. God I love wedding blogs. They pretty much encompass all my favorite subjects and the photos can be so magical. Example?

The hair, the dress, the tattoo, the rings, the flowers. It’s so cute my head might explode.
