First Assignment

My name is Katelynn Butcher and I am a Sophmore. I am attending The Ohio State University, main campus in the fall and majoring in Athletic Training, to later lead to Physical Therapy School.

To be honest, I read very little only because I am so particular about what I read. If I'm reading you will usually catch me reading a book based on a true story, those interest me the most. Although I love reading true stories, I also love some fictional writings as well. I watch a lot more movies than I do reading, but I would like to change that! Hopefully by taking this class it will open me up to different authors and their books!

1) I have many hobbies outside of school!
-My friend Michelle is going to school for photography, so she takes a lot of different pictures of me for her portfolio. I enjoy this a lot, we go to so many different places to get different backgrounds and environments.
-I also like to run. Running and working out has always been a passion of mine.
-Football has always been a huge part of my life as well. I was a cheerleader in high school and since I did not continue my career in cheerleading in college I purchase the season tickets for Ohio State Football every year. I hope to one day go to a Pittsburgh Steelers game!
-Also, like most people, I love spending time with my family. I try to hang out and support my little brother and sister as much as possible. Encouragement is a huge thing for children to experience at such young ages. It's amazing to see how much kids grow in such little time, it's something you really don't realize when you are that age. Every moment you spend with them is so very special just because anything could happen at any time, so I really do try to take in all the moments and take lots of pictures!

2) I absolutely love the Twilight and Harry Potter series! I'm a nerd and like most people in this generation. The books are almost better but I can't emphasize enough how much I love when they make such great books into movies. I also enjoy the non-fictional movies as well. I love war movies for some reason. They interest me so much. My favorite would have to be Pearl Harbor.
-The best book that I have read in this past year is Lovely Bones. I really did enjoy that read a lot. I also read a book that I read when I was little and still enjoyed it, called A Child called "it."
-I think what made it so good was that they were both based off a true story and I really enjoy to learn about other peoples lives through story and books.


  1. I cannot read or see "Lovely Bones". The subject matter just hits too close to home, as losing a child is a mother's worst nightmare. I am even disturbed by the commercials - that is a subject that I don't even want to think about.
