That’s So Catherine

cat soccerNow, this is a story all about how

Her life got flipped, turned upside down

And she’d like to take a minute

Just sit right there

She’ll tell you how she became the prince of a town called…Ann Arbor? Ha. She wishes.

Born on April 28th 1995, Catherine Louise Livingston grew up in Rye, NY with her mother, father and two brothers. She currently resides in Ann Arbor as a directionless student at The University of Michigan. She was named after Catherine of Wuthering Heights, but alas, has yet to find her Heathcliff *sigh*. A former 3 sport athlete, she now occasionally frequents the Central Campus Recreational Building when she can muster the willpower. Nothing brings her more joy than her two dogs, Duke and Blue. She cannot go longer than a month without shopping and her ultimate weakness is York peppermint patties. If she could live a day in the life of anyone it would be JLaw, hands down. *That’s So Raven voice* Yep, that’s me!!!!

Emily Hoffner lives in La La Land, where chocolate grows on trees and where Ann Taylor Loft is the center of the universe.  She is critically acclaimed for winning the “Short Fuse Angry Ginger” award back in 1996, when the bully in kindergarten stole her crayons and tried to flush them down the toilet.  Her favorite wine is Yellowtail Chardonnay, but it only tastes good when paired with sweatpants at the end of a god-awful day.  She enjoys engaging in passionate discussions with stubborn inanimate objects.  She has a boyfriend who is wacky enough to love her.  (He has a strict and detailed mouthwash-gargling ritual.)
