About Me

Who is this blogger? Why this blog? Who are the parents and siblings she always talks about?

You might not be asking these questions, but I’m going to assume that if you’re on this page, you might be interested in the answers.

Always on the lookout for new ideas!

Kathryn Joy here.

Since my birth in 1995, I’ve been an Innovator, Idealist, and . . . different. (Not always by choice.) I moved eighteen times before my eighteenth birthday, due to a father that gets as much joy as myself from trying new things. He named me “Katie” because he wanted someone “spicy.” I fit the bill.

My earlier creations include rallying my siblings, the neighborhood boys, or whoever else I could round up, to build a zip-line that nearly hung my guinea-pig sister, a musical instrument that successfully made it to the garbage, and a tree swing that broke the cranky neighbor’s prized foliage. (I never could figure out why she hated us. I only sent Kyla into her garage to tell me what was in the cupboard. And of course we were going to run when she chased us with her cane!)

The Infamous "Zipline."
The Infamous “Zipline.”

Since those early days, I have tried to channel my energy to more productive heights. At fourteen, I applied and was accepted to a writing institute that claimed to only accept two-thirds of their applicants, and at sixteen I began college. This is not to suggest that I am an academic.

Rather, I like biting off more than I can chew.

I write for my own benefit, love good conversation, create music, read powerful books that make me feel like I have bright ideas, and take competition seriously. I desire to become a life-long learner, reach from my parent’s shoulders, and ignore the masses.

I don’t pursue unique living for my own benefit. (Okay, so maybe some of it.) But I am more than a purposeless being waiting for eventual death. I’m a follower of Christ and He calls me to be different. Not just for different’s sake. But because He is different.

Also, I’m a hopeless idealist because I’ve grown up in a family that dreams and sees dreams become reality. I have been told hundreds of times, “Who cares if it’s unrealistic?”

And so I don’t. 

Currently, I teach private english lessons, help run my husband’s and my two businesses (VoetbergMusicAcademy.com and Neolife,) and try to keep burning in the kitchen to a minimum. 

That’s me. 

My mission statement for this online journal is here.

    1. It was so good to meet you too, Marilyn! I am very blessed by my father, and God has been so good to make him effective in many different walks of life! Thank you so much for your encouragement! I look forward to using the resources you mentioned, and seeing you again too! Love and hugs back, Kathryn Joy

  2. I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually not often do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me inform you, you will have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is something that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about. I am very completely satisfied that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something regarding this.

  3. I think the League will use a similar format as they did in the their first debate. It is unfortunate that that didn’t include rebuttal. I think that works to Jordan’s advantage. I sense his knowledge isn’t very deep on many issues. Maybe with so much more time they will allow for clarifications. I would also assume the League chose the venue. The Chamber got a much better venue that will accommodate many more people.

  4. 1)At is right about the fact that you can’t trade them sucks (I also feel like this about imperial silk).2)You are right that they are fairly easy to obtain via farming/dailies.At wins because soulbound suckiness beats ease of farming awesomeness. I have all these Spirits and can’t use them. D:
