Hello there! Thanks for visiting my blog, The State of Kate. This blog is going to be a mix of advice from me on various topics including health and lifestyle as well as updates on my day to day life as a college student. So a little bit about me:

I’m a junior at Ohio University studying Journalism: Strategic Communication in the Scripps School of Journalism. I’m not 100 percent sure what I want to do after graduation, but right now I have a few different jobs in some organizations at school that focus on social media strategy and digital communication. Like any other college student, I’m still sorting through my interests and trying to find out where exactly they will take me in two years. So stay tuned for some blogs about those decisions.

If it wasn’t hard enough being a college student, last year I had to move six hours away from my family. The summer after my freshman year my dad got a promotion that moved our family from Lancaster, Ohio to Charlotte, North Carolina, which meant that now instead of living 45 minutes away from my family, I was living six hours away from them. It was a big adjustment, to say the least. I don’t expect that it will get any easier this coming year, but hopefully, I’ll find more and better ways to cope with the distance and I’ll let you in on those discoveries too.

So that’s me! Thanks again for visiting and reading the blog, feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or blog requests.
