C. J. Doty My name is Catherine Doty, but my family and friends call me 'Catie.' I will be turning 25 years old on May 19th of this year (2017). I think most people would agree on the fact that 25 years old is still what most people would consider to be a pretty young age. But please don't let that number fool you! I like to think of myself as someone who is much wiser beyond his or her years. I am a fairly intelligent individual. I like to think of myself as a very self-confident person. Especially when I am in an atmosphere that includes certain family members and the 'handful' of close friends that I have that I practically consider to be my family. I know several people who have taken time to put together a bucket list when they were my age. With that said, I've never been able to even finish writing out a bucket list. The reason for not being able to complete this 'simple' task is pretty straightforward, I totally overthink the whole concept! I have tried to put one together many times actually, and I never feel like it is complete and satisfactory to my desires and expectations. There IS this ONE thing that I have always hoped to have the opportunity to do. I can sit here and HONESTLY say that I have been thinking/'fantasizing' over the different ways that one might go about completing this. I WANT TO WRITE A BOOK!!!!!!! If you were somebody who personally knew me, you would more than likely be able to guess that I am 100% clueless on how I am going to complete this task. Scratch that!!! I am 100% clueless on where to even begin. I do know one thing for sure though! I WILL WRITE A BOOK, even if it kills me!
