The Real Katelyn

After seeing Carly and Hunter's posts about "My Real Self" I was inspired to do one as well. I also truly believe that bloggers sort of create this ideal lifestyle on the internet, when their real life isn't like that at all. It makes it seem like their lives are so perfect and everything seems to just go their way. But, I'm pretty sure this isn't the case for anyone that blogs, or anyone on the internet really. I know that my blog mainly focuses on the positive of my life, but trust me, there are a lot of negatives as well. I don't even feel like my blog comes off showing that my life is perfect, but if it does that is not the case. There's a lot that's a little screwed up in my life. I think it's also important to share some of life's failures in my blog because obviously this blog is about fashion, etc, but it does cover a lot of my life as well. That's why I think it's important that I not only share my successes, but my failures as well. So today, just as Carly and Hunter did I'm going to share a photo of my real selfie. 

This photo is just from when I was really sick at badminton camp, but I figured that it suits the purpose. No makeup, no hair done, no nothing. 

The Real Katelyn

-hates a lot of things {and hates that she does}
-spends a lot of time alone
-has terrible bags under her eyes
-gets little sleep during the school week
-doesn't like to work hard
-takes a lot of selfies
-worries about ridiculous things
-relaxes way too much
-lives her life on the internet
-loves depressing music
-doesn't spend a ton of time with friends
-has so many dreams, but guarantees that she won't follow them

I hope you understand me a little better than before through this pretty honest post. I think it's important to share this because bloggers may not always seem like real people {I know that all of my favorite bloggers seem to be perfect online}. But, I am real. And I have daily struggles and many traits that I don't like about myself, but honestly, don't we all? I hope you feel that you know the real Katelyn from now on.

XOXO, Katelyn
