ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm Kat and I write stories. This journal is my spot in the shade away from it all. It's kind of like my room, where I can daydream and talk about all the things I love about life. Aside from fanfiction (which is how this blog got started), I also post personalized reviews and features. Feel free to explore the sidebar as well as the tags at the bottom of every entry; you'll likely find more of what you're looking for there.

FRIENDING POLICY (FOR LJ USERS)

If I've had you on my list at one point or other, then consider us friends forever. Even if you disappear for a bit (or do it sporadically), or even if we haven't spoken in years, it's cool. We'll always be able to find something to talk about, believe me. Unless, of course, you've done something particularly terrible like tortured puppies or kittens. Or are now insanely homophobic. Having said that, my journal is a pressure-free space where you can come and go as you please. The only thing I do when I conduct a clean-up is check for dead or empty journals anyway.

Other than friends I've met all around LiveJournal, I also add people whose fic/posts I read and enjoy immensely. If you see me on your friends-list and we've never talked or anything, I definitely don't expect you to add me back. Life is much simpler that way. And to those who are new and just about to step into my world of crazyawesome, welcome! While I don't fancy excessive drama or angst, if you need someone to talk to, I can listen. Likewise, you will find ramblings and spoilers here. They'll be under cuts, but don't say I didn't warn you.

+ Feel free to request fic. Comment with your fandom, pairing, and prompt. :)

Wanderlust: Cat Cafe Manila


In keeping with my resolution to get out more and to explore the Sikatuna area (which we moved to a few years ago), I decided to make a reservation at Cat Cafe Manila.

I've always liked the idea of animal cafes (which are really popular in Japan), and have read that the concept is to create a relaxing space for people who are stressed out or feeling lonesome. This video, for example, shows just how therapeutic being around kittens - and, I'm adding, puppies - can be. They're also for people who don't have pets of their own, which often results from living and working in the city. So, when I started hearing about all these animal cafes popping up around town, I knew that I had to try them out.
