Katherine is a woman in her twenties who lives in Philadelphia. She has a blog about that.

Oh, my GOD. Mommmm. Seriously. Don’t read this.

  1. I’m a 63 year old Australian. I stumbled across your site on another blog, love your words, and look forward to gradually getting to the bottom of your blog. You shall be my 2014 ‘happy place’. Also anyone who throws the word fuck around is my kind of person.
    Thanks for the laughter

  2. You nourished me back to health at jury duty with granola. And your blog is pretty great. OH EM GEE NEW FAAAAANNNNNNN

    Seriously though. We need to party, I like your brain.

  3. Hullo Katherine,

    Another Blog stumble upon from Down Under (as Yoda might say).

    I too must commend you on your writing style. Quite charming and hilarious.

  4. Oh wow, I’ve just come across your blog while studying, which means bad things for exams but GREAT things for my sanity!

    Excellent post, very thoughtful and I agree with you. As a white person I often feel paralyzed and unable to articulate eloquently how I’m feeling, and you were able to do that well.

    The one thing I did notice is you mention funny “women who create their own television series and then publish sassy, funny, inspirational memoirs” and didn’t mention Mindy Kaling, a woman of color who also fits into that category. If you haven’t read her memoir, first of all it’s hilarious, but second of all I’d recommend it also because I think the sentiment you’re expressing about importance of diverse voices in who we’re friends with, also applies to the art that we take in – whether supporting particularly books, but also television, music, and movies, written or produced by people of color. There’s a huge movement (especially in Young Adult lit but also broadly in literature) calling for support for authors of color: “We Need Diverse Books.” Since learning about it, I’ve been aware of my own reading habits and made more of a conscious effort to diversify the authors I read.

  12. Looooooove your “Race ya” entry!!! Hoping it goes viral. Very powerful, very well-written, and quite hysterical at that.

  13. Thank you so much for speaking and blogging about your experience. It’s not unique. I’m in Philly, grew up outside Chicago and like you never had a black classmate until college.
    Simply speaking out openly an honestly is important. The first revolution is from within and you’re on the path of compassionate understanding.
    I will be sharing this excellent piece. Thank your again.

  14. Katherine, I applaud you and can’t believe you’re a”twentysomething disaster.” Sounds like your head is screwed on right. But, more than your head, your heart.

  15. Bravo to you & your blog, Katherine. Loving it. (I myself am a 40-yr-old hot mess of an attorney turned SAHM of 3 turned storyteller/blogger living in LA. I blog about that.) And I told you what can happen when someone talks/blabs to your mom about something you post on your blog. You get an angry call from Mom saying, “You’re pregnant AGAIN?!” “No, Mom, no. It was a teaser. For my blog. Forget it – you don’t know what a blog is, do you?” lol. xoxo.

  16. Very interesting pieces on Race.
    I am a black male (mixed, but you know, cops would still call for back-up, so I qualify as black) living in Charlotte NC.
    Your voice was refreshing. The update about Race ya is EXACTLY the energy we face on a day to day basis as non whites in America. It doesn’t matter how eloquently we will hit the nail, there will be a solid bottom of the barrel gunk of goobers* that will live in denial of the obvious. Unfortunately when you add their active disregard for their fellow human beings and you couple it to the happy go lucky ignorance of other white people (the ones who like you can rise to realization that maybe they might be kicking around a prejudice or two) and you get the day to day experience of a non white… One does eventually go numb until another child or unarmed teen gets killed by the operation of ambiant systemic disregard for minorities. That’s usually when we get the occasional “unfriend” for being too vocal (when numbing clears, momentarily anyway)
    All this rumbling to say thank you for your good spirit and honesty.

  17. Hi Katherine, I might agree with you.
    But due to the fact that my blog is quite poor (geoch1.wordpress.com), I would even pray my mom to read and follow it, just to get one more follower!

    In any case, your blog is nice and I will have a look sometimes!

  19. I love, love, love your posts!!! Keep it up!!! I’m from down South (USA), where honesty is not heard often, but welcomed and appreciated by some of us. 😉

  20. Hi, how are you?
    I’m writing because I just saw on upworthy your post about feminism and I’d like to know if you authorize me to translate that for Portuguese, you know, it is an idea good to spread.
    Congratulations on your blog and good luck with your mom.
    Best regards.

  21. I love your blog! But there is one thing I have to know..

    Has your mother seen your blog already in the meanwhile?
    Your blog is like a comedy-drama series that ends everytime with the cliffhanger; has her mom seen this???

    Oh and by the way I’m too greedy to give you a donut. (Cause I like donuts too)

  22. Your writing blends the wry perspective of Vonnegut (without the cynicism or fear of technology) and a spicy measure of Hunter S. Thompson insanity (without the acid or firearms). From where I’m standing, your restrained but effective use of the word fuck is icing on a cake you get to eat with your hands. Great combo, if you want to sell a few zillion books. Please keep viewing the world the way you do and sharing it unabashedly. And publish your anthology already…

  23. I looooove your blog, then I also love all the comments and clearly Aussies love you! I should know, I am an Aussie living in LA and craving someone who swears grammatically correctly. It’s just important….please find me on Facebook Katherine…..and the 63 year old lady who is from Australia who sent a message, you’re great too!

  24. I have another F- word for you and that is Fresh.. I love your writing style. It is so “fresh”. Keep up the good work! And if I were to run into you someday I would be that crazy person freakin out.. Oh my god your Katherine Fritz!! Will you take a pic with me? Will you sign your autograph for me? :0) just warning you ahead of time. Have a great day!

  25. Your writing is the type of writing that makes me want to quit writing forever and instead just read your stuff all day. That’s the highest compliment I can give someone.
    Do you have a book coming? If not, can you, please? (I’m trying to go through 2 years of posts so maybe this is included in one of those but I’ve yet to see anything.)
