My name is Kathryn and I'm a part-time student at Queen's University in Canada. I am Majoring in Psychology and filling the rest of my courses with as much writing and Linguistic classes as I can!

Reading, writing, and drawing are three of my favourite activities - especially when I can do them while curled up in a warm ray of sun! I'm a (very amateur) photographer, as well as a lifeguard, and am hoping to attend a few of the Queen's Swing Club dance nights again this year. =D My biggest set-back right now is a lack of inspiration/motivation/imagination in regards to art content...hopefully I will come across some soon. =]

This site was recommended to me by my amazing mother - she's been a member for over a year and gushes about her friends here all the time!
As a part-time student just moved out into my own place, my goals are to get out of the house at least once a day; walk at least 35k steps each week; swim at least once every three days; and learn how to eat well while cooking for myself.

Right now life itself often seems pretty terrifying, so reaching those goals appears to be an even more daunting task... I am determined to get better though, and to not let my depression and anxiety get the best of me! Better yet, I am determined to enjoy each day, and conquer my negative feelings! I know it won't be easy, but I also know that I have a lot of people who are thinking about and praying for me - so I know it's achievable.

"dance... as thought no one is watching you.
love... as though you have never been hurt before.
sing... as though no one can hear you.
live... as though heaven is on earth." - souza
