all i have to offer is my own confusion

I'm Kate. Born & raised in the ever lovely New York. I'm not going to bore you with a list of my favorite things; I mean I think my blog pretty much speaks for itself in terms of what I like/don't like. Though I do have an unhealthy obsession with Puggles & Palm trees. Oh! And I'm sarcastic. Pretty Prettty Pretty sarcastic ;)

I'm a firm believer in karma and treating people the way you want to be treated. I'm not perfect. I make mistakes. And sometimes I fuck up. Royally. I don't have the answers to all life's questions but what I do know, is that I do things genuinely and whole heartedly. My intentions are pure.

I'm just trying to live life the best way I can. Don't ever let someone tell you it's too late to make a POSITIVE change in your life. It's not. And you can. I have. I'm a constant work-in-progess and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Life is a struggle, and ultimate victory is only decided in its final chapter. That is why it’s important not to become intoxicated by one’s success or become disheartened in defeat.

As many as 10,000 people believed to be dead.  The crisis in the Philippines is far from over. With dead bodies reportedly still lying alongside the roads of their destroyed city, residents of Tacloban are desperate for basic aid—food, water, shelter—all of which has been slow to arrive.

“I am a decent person. But if you have not eaten in three days, you do shameful things to survive,” he told Agence France-Presse while digging out canned goods. “This typhoon has stripped us of our dignity … but I still have my family and I am thankful for that.”

"Though two Air Force planes arrived at Tacloban’s wrecked airport this morning, the planes could only carry a few hundred of the more the more than 3,000 people hoping to escape the city’s devastation, where corpses still litter the ground."

"I was pleading with the soldiers. I was kneeling and begging," one survivor said. "Do they want me to die in this airport? They are stone-hearted."

"I don’t believe there is a single structure that is not destroyed or severly damaged in some way - every single building, every single single house," U.S. Marine Brig. Gen Paul Kennedy said after flying to over Tacloban.

Six trucks of military cadaver collectors have begun to scour the island, but the soldiers are apparently overwhelmed.  “There are bodies everywhere, we do not have enough people to get to them,” said one driver.

The important thing is to take that first step. Bravely overcoming one small fear gives you the courage to take on the next.

I finally feel like I’ve reached all my weight loss goals over the past 2 years. It’s been a trip & I’ve had numerous obstacles & set backs.. But one thing I never did was give up or quit. And for that, I’m extremely proud of myself.
