Katie Morosky

Today I feel a lot like Katie Morosky. Barbra played the role of Katie in The Way We Were costarring Robert Redford (for those who didn’t already know this bit of information). Her character always felt so out of place in the world, especially while in college, but she stood up for her beliefs anyway. I saw this picture and laughed because I know that, minus the afro, I looked like this in my history class this morning.

I used to have a Hubbell in my life… Notice I said “used to” because my story would have been the same as Hubbell and Katie’s if we kept it going… That doesn’t mean I don’t miss him though. I miss him everyday even though he’s still my best friend. Now I just refer to what we had as “The Way We Were.” Another reason I am so connected to Barbra.
