• What it Means to be a Maker

    November 24, 2017 Kate

    It’s not about scale or automation. Passive income or growth hacking. It’s the physical connection with every piece of work you do. By a human for a human. Your fingerprints. Your signature.

    November 21, 2017 Kate

    I’m tired. I’m not sure of what, exactly. Nope… No that’s a lie. I’m tired of the disconnect between where I am and where I want to be. I’m tired of the tension between how I feel and how I want to feel. As it turns out, I’ve got a serious case of FOMO. FOMO,…

  • Smells Like Entitlement

    November 20, 2017 Kate

    Why doesn’t he like me? Why isn’t he proud of me? Why doesn’t he want to show me off? Why doesn’t he want to take care of me? Why doesn’t he follow up when I say I’m anxious? Why doesn’t he ask why? Why doesn’t he ask how I am? Why doesn’t he care? Why…

  • (Outdated) Survival Instincts

    November 13, 2017 Kate

    “I won’t have crap like that lying around.” That’s what they said about my art. We’d just got a new fridge and I’d taken the box and made a house out of it. I’d cut out a door and windows, made shutters, painted the inside and outside… It was perfect. Perfect for me. Later that…
