I’m struggling.  I’m struggling with my identity as a woman, I’m struggling with my identity as a Catholic, I’m struggling with my identity as an American, as a daughter… in so many ways.  And I wish that I could just churn out academic and logical essays, but where I’m at in my life right now, I’m 23.  I still have to rely on my experiences a lot in my writing.  I don’t yet know what is universal, whether I’m normal, whether anyone should listen to me, what other people are going through – I just have a taste of that, not a full understanding.

So this blog is about what it is like  for me  to be 23 years old and Catholic and all the other crap.  And I think my experience may turn out to be a lot more relatable than the typical Catholic website so I’m happy, even excited to share.

If you have questions about me, feel free to ask via any method that you can find.  I’ll happily answer.

Please note that I have been blogging since I was 14 and have simply migrated most of my content from platform to platform – some of my views and perspectives have changed since those entries were posted.  But I’m keeping them for the sake of humility/pride and discussion.

And because it’s a huge pain in the butt to sift through everything.
