Tunesday: Happy Birthday, Kat!

Today is Katherine’s birthday. Let me tell you about my friend, Kat.

Katherine and I met about 10 years ago in college and had a few classes together. We kept in touch here and there, but a couple of years ago our friendship really started to solidify. She is one of my biggest cheerleaders and a true support in my life. And I think there are several people in this world who would list her high on their list. She enthusiastically pushes me to stretch myself as a writer, and even as a person, but she does this with a rare kindness so that it never comes off as judgment – she just always sees the best parts of her friends and refuses to let them overlook it. I hope that I can repay that.

Kat – you are a great person and an excellent writer. The pieces you have written here have made me cry, made me laugh, made me dance, made me watch things, made me listen to things. I can’t wait for the world to see some of the stories you are working on outside of this site, as well. You always notice people. You check in. You send awesome snaps. You see the world in your unique Katherine way, and that perspective has made me a better person. I hope you have an amazing birthday. Please enjoy a selection of tunes and clips from artists adored by the birthday girl!
