insecure // A Play in Four Acts

Interdum stultus bene loquitur*

I.

As we can see, side proposition has constructed a very detailed argument, I begin, my carefully-penned outlines trembling in my hands, shaking legs supporting an unwavering voice. Unfortunately for them, detail doesn’t mean durability.

It’s okay. It’s okay. Just breathe.

And Farmer Brown Took Care of Them All

Life on Farmer Brown’s farm was always peaceful. Pig played in the mud. Duck swam in the pond. Horse chomped on her hay. And Farmer Brown took care of them all.

Hello (It’s Me)

Hey!

I’m doing WordPress.com’s Blogging University challenge over on my writing blog, and I’ve decided that it’s going to be a blog focused solely on writing–which means all my personal stuff is going to get relegated to this blog over here! Just in case you ever wanted to hear what I think about debate, travel, cats, or whatever I feel like telling you about, this blog is here so you can do that 😉

… anyways. In all seriousness, my name is Kimberly Horton, I’m a student, writer, actress, traveler, INFJ, Christian, and proud of all of those things. I’m extremely nerdy, I tend to ramble (which is… probably apparent), and once you start talking to me about Harry Potter I’ll probably be your best friend. And then I won’t shut up. 😉

If you want to know more about who I am, go check out my About page on my regular writing blog over here. For writing things, go there. For personal anecdotes and other things not pertaining to writing, click around!
