Hello interwebz, are you ready?
Okay, that’s probably an unfair question because you don’t have any idea what you’re getting in to. Let me take a moment to introduce us to you, and then you can decide if this is a good or not-so-good or fairly-adequate or barely-interestng idea that you might be willing to shout on the rooftops about, or at least tell all your friends about when you get the chance.
My name is Hannah, and my co-writer here is Caitlin. I’ll give her a moment to introduce herself soon, but for now it’s my show. About me. Well, I’m a 20-year old college student, and I’m in love with my Catholic faith. I was born and raised Catholic but didn’t truly accept the Catholic Church as Truth (with a capitol T) until I came to college. Currently I’m studying English, I’m discerning a call to marriage with a certain young gentleman, and I love to knit, watch NBC comedies, and edit (sometimes viciously) other people’s writing. I’m fairly normal, as you will soon come to understand.
I am Caitlin, I am 21, and I not normal in anyway. I’m studying Spanish with minors in Religious Studies, and Studio Art. I am also discerning a call to marriage with a different gentleman, a more Divine Gentleman, if you get my drift. If you don’t, I’m discerning a call to the religious life, aka a nun. Freshman year, college kicked me down and Christ picked me back up. I like video games, crew neck sweatshirts, talking about being Catholic, and La Virgen de Guadalupe.
Caitlin and I have long discussed the lack of good, young Catholic writing available. Marc from BadCatholic is an exception to that rule, of course, but as far as we can tell, he’s the only one doing it. And if I’ve learned anything in my education so far, it’s that following the crowd is always lucrative, right? In light of that revelation, we decided it was about time that there was some sort of feminine perspective on the Internet about being young and Catholic. We both have a lot of ideas to present to y’all, and many opinions that aren’t really the norm for our generation.
If you have questions at any time, please feel free to ask them. We are not quite familiar with the WordPress format yet, as we are both originally Tumblr bloggers, but as soon as I figure out the outside-contact concept, I’ll make sure it’s up and working. Know that we are praying for anyone who comes across this blog, and if you ever have ideas about what we should write about, let us know!
Hannah and Caitlin
