Je m’appelle Kaitlyn Michelle. I hate my adopted last name, so I won’t say it, but the last name I was born with is Kelly. I was born in a way small town in northern Iowa on the second of August and was raised in that same town for eight years. My mom worked as a hairdresser and my dad was a mechanic. On the sixteenth of November in 2002, my beloved father died of a heart malfunction on his way to work. He was well loved and I’ll always miss him. My mom, who is Bipolar, was forced to take up a job at the food center to support us in the most primitive way. In the winter of 2003, my mom, sister, brother, and I moved to a somewhat bigger town with our new Step Father, whom she had met and married sometime within the two dates. Life became somewhat easier. I didn’t make many friends here—I’d barely had any at my hometown— but at least we could afford more. In April of 2005, my half sister, Kjersten, was brought into the world. She’s the only blonde in my immediate family.
I am now a 15 year old Sophomore surving the cruelty of high school. Not a single semester of my high school career will be without art; it has this quality about it that is calming. I have no idea where I am going in life, but I know that any career path will absolutely have to incorporate art. I love reading books, but I can’t read the same book twice within a five year period. I wouldn’t consider myself anywhere near what society claims ‘normal’, but I think it’s better that way. Normality, c’est barbant. Did I mention I am a second year student of French? I love over-sized sweaters, skinny jeans, vertical stripes, high socks, tights, sun dresses, and anything rust colored. Music is another passion of mine. I haven’t found a single band to like, but I have to admit there is a tie between Smashing Pumpkins, Taking Back Sunday, Straylight Run, and The Cars. I am growing my hair out to fall about halfway down my back; so far I am about halfway to my goal. I have a weakness for cats, rabbits, tea, and Breadeaux Pizza(it’s amazing, trust me). I love to run. I just hate running in the country. My life is a kaleidoscope, it looks different from all angles. 5T4S
