I’ve loved learning more about some of the other bloggers out there, so now it’s my turn to share about me by listing a character trait for each letter of my first name– Katie.
K is for kind. As a vegan, I guess this one is a given. In my life, I’ve rescued and nursed back to health a rabbit, a parrot, an abused puppy, and many a spider caught in our house. I’m also very involved in the charity I started up called Project Pillows, where we sew “Comfort Pillows” for kids going through Chemotherapy.
A is for artistic. I am absolutely crazy about anything and everything to do with art, be it scrapbooking, drawing, sculpting, even painting my nails, which are always decorated with stripes, spots, snowflakes… once I even made them into candy corns (yes, I know candy corn isn’t vegan, but it’s ok– I don’t bite my nails!).
T is for tireless. I am an Energizer Bunny of energy. In high school I played tennis and soccer, and I’ve been an avid runner for the past few years. I also love taking long walks with my two dogs.
I is for international. I never know what to say when people ask where I’m from. I was born in England and have lived in Japan, Philadelphia, The Philippines, China, and Texas. My childhood was amazing– I’ve gotten to visit so many countries (my first passport stamp was at 6 weeks old!) and learn about cultures vastly different from my own.
E is for English nerd… actually I’m a language nerd in general. I love to read, expand my vocabulary, and study other languages. To illustrate my nerdiness, I am majoring in Spanish, know quite a bit of Chinese, and am currently studying Italian and Japanese.
Since I’m pretty new to the blogger world, I’m unsure as to who has already been tagged… so I’m breaking the rules and not tagging 5 people, but if you haven’t been tagged and want to participate, consider yourself tagged!
