my name's katie. i'm canadian.
i'll be 24 this month. :( i feel old.
i've been on lj since i was 12. most folks on my friendslist routinely fall off the face of the earth, so i find myself in these communities every now and then. :)
+ i live with my hippie drummer boyfriend of five years, a hippie guitarist, three koreans on visa, three cats, and several freshwater fish. we all love animals.
+ i'm a psychology student at the university of ottawa.
+ i quit working this year to focus on school. best thing i've ever done for myself.
+ i'm a cook by trade. i've met lots of amazing people, the money is decent, and i'm pretty good at it, but just hate the work.
+ i've recently started making plans to move to halifax for grad school (a year or two away).
+ i teach karate in my spare time, and like to try all other sorts of martial arts for fun (and to retain my sanity) - currently also doing kickboxing and kung-fu.
+ i really love scuba diving, but just can't afford it at this point in my life! so instead, in the summer i visit my parents on vancouver island and go surfing in tofino. which is also amazing.
+ i have itchy feet. i've never been out of canada and it makes me nuts. one day i'll travel the world.
+ i get emotional but i come around.
+ i speak english, japanese, and bad canadian french.
i'm interested in meeting open-minded, optimistic folks who post about their lives and not just fandoms or being high. i want to get to know you as a person! (you're way more interesting than your interests!)
i don't believe a blog should be thought of as a chore. as such, i'm not going to promise to comment on every entry, nor do i expect that of anyone, but i will do my best to read and comment when i have something meaningful to contribute. i would be happy if you felt the same way!
i post every day or every other day about what i'm up to or plans for the future.
sometimes i do survey memes. sometimes i post pictures of pets.
that's about it.
add me, friends. <3
