I'm Katie Longtine. I have two younger sisters named Ashleigh (15) and Emma (10). I spend a lot of my time writing and doing digital art. I also do theatre and take piano lessons when I'm not doing theatre. Music and art are a huge part of my life, and I really love appreciate them. I also like to cook, particularly Asian food. I am still a senior in high school, but next year I'm planning on attending OSU Marion as an English major. A fun fact about me is that I can speak some French and I'd like to learn Japanese.
When Hugo said, "When you start to write, you carry to the page one of two attitudes...One is that all music must conform to truth. The other, that all truth must conform to music," it really resonated with me. The latter attitude, that you shouldn't confine your language to what is absolutely true, is something that I've found extremely liberating. And I think that I've found in not focusing on using the language to convey the truth, I end up better conveying the truth. It's almost as if you consciously think about something, you have more difficulty expressing yourself than if you let your mind wander.
