My name is Kayte and I moved from Maine to Boston in September of 2012. Prior to that, I was living in Gettysburg, PA and attending Gettysburg College as an English Major with a concentration in Studio Art. While at Gettysburg, I was also a member of Chi Omega, Varsity Swimming (4 years), Upscale Acapella, and B.O.M.B. Squad Dance Group. I like to stay busy. 

I started blogging during my junior year of college but it was sporadic and nothing noteworthy. It was not until I graduated and had more free time and excess creative energy that I really put more effort into my blogging. Thus, mass.musings was born. Originally I hosted mass.musings on Tumblr because I love the sense of community. However, I recently changed to blogger because, for what I'm aiming to do, it made more sense and was a better fit for my content. 

I am literally addicted to J.Crew- don't expect me to walk out of a store empty handed, it's literally impossible for me. I also love note cards. I think that there is something to be said for a well-written, hand-written note.

When I grow up I want to be Beyonce. Or Jenna Lyons... either would be cool with me. 


P.S. I like to make faces. A lot.
