Katelyn Tarver checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@katelyntarveronline) on Friday (February 6), discussing her new apartment in Los Angeles and reaching the 50,000 friend milestone on MySpace. The teen pop singer tells readers:
I’ve had such a busy past few days! Me and my bro moved in to a new apartment. You know, thinking about moving in to a new apartment was really exciting at first. I get to decorate my new bedroom, decorate the living room, paint the walls… then I realized – We. Have. NOTHING. No plates, silverware, table, couch, bed, mattress, pillows.. AHHH. We’ve been going all over town trying to find good deals ,and it’s been exhausting! Hah. Right now I’m sitting on an air mattress in the living room on the computer while my dad is laying on the wood floor right in front of the TV (yeah, we found one!!) with his head on a pillow. My room is a COMPLETE disaster due to my lack of a dresser.. although I did find a bed and mattress! So at least I have a place to sleep…
But you know what? I just need to shut up. I’m so blessed to even HAVE the opportunity to come out here and live and go after my dreams. To even HAVE an apartment.. who cares if it’s empty! To have YOU GUYS!!! I totally realize I couldn’t do this without you so I hope you guys know how thankful I am for you! I have nothing to complain about.. but I will say that moving in to a new place was a little more stressful than I imagined.
Katelyn Tarver checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@katelyntarveronline) on Wednesday (January 14), struggling to stay awake since she has to meet a guy who’s shipping her car over this morning. The pop singer tells readers:
So…. It’s almost 2 AM here in LA and I’m still up. I mean, I usually stay up really late but I guess when you HAVE to stay up….. you really want to go to sleep! Like RIGHT NOW… why am I still up you ask?? Well… my car is being shipped out here to LA and I have to meet the guy who is bringing it in about 30 minutes. So.. I decided to let you guys know. Everybody is asleep on the east coast so I can’t really call anybody to chat. Most people are asleep on the west coast too so here I am.. trying to do things to keep me awake. I’ve cleaned my kitchen, cleaned my room, got the coffee maker ready to go so I just have to push ON in the morning when I wake up, brushed my teeth, washed my face, I was going to read but at this hour reading a book would put me to sleep in a second–SO, I decided to say hello to you! And fill you in on how my first week in LA has been…
Katelyn Tarver updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@katelyntarveronline) on Monday (January 5), preparing to make the move from Georgia to California. The pop singer tells readers:
Hello my friends! How was your holiday?! How was your New Year’s Eve celebration?! I hope it was the best you’ve ever had.
I’m just sitting here at my house getting ready to move out on WEDNESDAY! I’m moving to California! moving to CALIFORNIA! So crazy.. I’m really excited. A little nervous but… mostly excited. I’m gonna be rehearsing like crazy right when I get out there for this new project I’m working on. I’m opening for Mitchell Musso on the 18th of January in Steamboat Springs, CO!! YAY. I’m going to be opening with my friend Malese Jow so it should be fun! I’m also singing a song with Mitchell!! So, if you happen to be skiing in Steamboat on January 18, please stop by! Hah… it’s gonna be fun.
I also was asked to be in Mitchell’s new music video for his song “The In Crowd”. It was so cool!! I can’t wait for you guys to see it! I’m not sure when it premieres but.. I took a lot of video so expect to see my version soon. The real video should be premiering sometime this month. It was a really cool experience… I won’t give too much away but.. let’s just say I wasn’t a part of “The In Crowd” ….ha ha haaaaa.

HEY GUYS!!! How was your Christmas??!!? How are your holidays going??!?
My Christmas was so great. I loved being able to spend it with my family. I loved just being home eating way to much. Haha.. I literally should be 500 pounds. ANYWAY, I got a GPS for my car! Yay! I was so excited. I’m planning on moving out to LA in January so that will come in handy! My little brother got a refurbished go-cart. We’ve had it for so long.. my aunt had it, my dad, my older brother, cousins.. so now it’s his turn I guess! It goes so fast! He was very happy. My older brother got a new computer! One that was very much needed if I do say so myself.. and my little sister got a CAR!!!! It was awesome!!!! She was so shocked… I got it on video so I’ll try to post it. It was THE BEST. I can’t believe she’s almost old enough to drive her own car…. So weird. But very exciting.
Christmas night was spent at my grandmothers with the extended family. I had so much dressing. It was amazing. My mom makes the greatest dressing. We exchanged presents, drank coffee, played with new gifts, laughed….. are you feeling all warm and fuzzy yet??? Good.
Hope your Christmas was as merry as mine. Thank you so much for all the sweet comments. I want to wish each one of you a big HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! You guys are the best….. almost as good as my mom’s dressing. ;)
LOVE YOU ALL!!!! Thanks for everything.

Katelyn Tarver checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@katelyntarveronline) on Monday (December 15), fretting about her incomplete Christmas shopping. The pop singer tells readers:
Am I losing my mind or is it really December 15?? NOO!! I had so many plans to be on top of things this Christmas yet here I am, ten days away, and I have gifts for two people. I guess a true procrastinator like me just CAN’T get things together ahead of time. Or maybe I’m just lazy…? Probably! I’m sure my dad would agree.
ANYWAY, how are YOU guys doing?! Enjoying the holidays?? Procrastinating like me? YAY! Haha… I’ve been great. Actually have to fly to LA tomorrow for some meetings and such SO.. I’m excited because I love LA, and I’m excited about what I’m doing out there BUT….my whole family will be home being together and I’ll be sad and lonely across the country.. I know , I know poor me, I’m going to be in LA, get over it! OK fine! You’re right. It will be fun ,and I’ll be back on the 22 soooo, it will be good. Thanks you guys! You always make me feel better! ;)
Well, I just wanted to say HELLO and see if there was anyone else out there who was slacking off in the “gift-getting” department. AND to say that I LOVE ALL OF YOU! You are so great to me, and I’m so thankful for YOU!!! I’m off to work on a present for my friend– I know! Crazy! :)

Katelyn Tarver updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@katelyntarveronline) on Tuesday (November 4), discussing the Nickelodeon pilot she’s been filming. The teen pop singer tells readers:
Guys! Hello!! How is everyone?? Today is election day!!!! I can’t believe it! I went and voted already. I felt very… powerful! Haha… if you are eligible: GO VOTE!
So last Friday was when I filmed the scenes for the show. It was SO FUN!!! I was a little nervous because I had never done a TV show like that before… but everyone made me feel so comfortable! The director was super nice, the cast was super nice, the set was amazing… it was so great! I don’t really have a big part in the pilot, BUT – hopefully it will get picked up and they can develop my character more. Cross your fingers!! It would be so much fun!!! Ahh… I’ll be sure to let you guys know as it develops. :)
Katelyn Tarver checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@katelyntarveronline) on Sunday (October 26). The Savannah, Georgia pop singer tells readers:
Helloo! How ARE you guys?? Hope you all are having a nice weekend! Or what’s left of it! I’ve had a great past few days! I worked with a guy named Wayne Rodrigues who did “Unwritten” for Natasha Bedingfield. It was so fun! We came up with some cool new stuff! … I also went to visit my good friend Lucy on the set of her show “Privileged” .. It’s so cool to see sets of shows. It just looks so different than it does on TV. It was fun! But I got a coughing attack at one point while they were shooting… not good. I was just sitting there and you have to be really quiet while they’re shooting (obviously) and I got this tickle in my throat. I tried to stifle it but that just makes it worse you know? So I had to quietly try to walk away and make my cough quiet until they cut… oh goodness. It was awful! Haha… so if you’re watching ‘Privileged’ and you hear a faint cough.. it was me!! Haha… Tuesdays at 9 on the CW .. by the way :)
