Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Kaitlyn McDermott. I am 22 years old and my birthday is June 16th. (Gemini!) I am in my last semester of undergrad majoring in English with Writing. I have gone to Kean all of my college career and have loved my experience here. I was born in Brooklyn, New York but only lived there until I was 2 and then moved to Union, NJ which has been home all my life.
I plan to get my masters in Writing Studies because I want to become a journalist. It has been a passion of mind since high school. I discovered my passion are journalism my freshman year of high school when I joined the newspaper. My sophomore and junior year of high school I was promoted to editor and then senior year I obtained the position of Editor-In-Chief.
To be honest, the school newspaper was the only thing that kept me sane in high school. My high school experience was very toxic. I was in a mean girl group and I was the target. They all pretended to be my friends but would constantly talk down about me In front of me and when I wasn’t around. After graduation, I cut them out and found real friends in college. I am so grateful I got out of that toxicity.
NOW ON A BRIGHTER NOTE, lets talk about the things that make me who I am. I am an 100% Irish girl and LOVE being Irish. I also am a dog mom to an 11 year old Yellow Lab named Hunter who is my CHILD lol. He’s getting old and it is breaking my heart but he is still in perfect health which is the bright side. I am also a big sister to an 18 year old brother named Daniel.
In my spare time, I love to workout. I go to the gym 6 days a week and also am a yoga instructor there on the side. Yoga and working out definitely keep me sane. I suffer from bad anxiety so it is my way to destress. I also am a big TV show binger and movie watcher!!! My favorite TV shows are Grey’s Anatomy, FRIENDS, Boy Meets World, and One Tree Hill. (My other guilty pleasure TV show is What Would You Do?) My favorite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany’s. I LOVE Audrey Hepburn.
Music also helps me cope with my anxiety. My favorite pastime is going to concerts (Thanks COVID for taking that away). I like all music for the most part. My favorite artists are Ariana Grande, The Jonas Brothers, Carrie Underwood and of course my absolute favorite… Justin Bieber (Belieber for life lol).
That is me in a nutshell! Hope you enjoyed!!
