WTF is Katherine?

Katherine is me! I’m a writer and graphic designer based in Toronto, and I compulsively document everything I watch, play and read, usually just for fun (sometimes for an actual purpose). I went to school for a super long time without managing to get a PhD, but I have some pretty good degrees in English, creative writing, and psychology. I write for a few different websites, most usually Bitch Flicks.

WTF is this blog?

This blog is partly a tedious account of everything I’ve watched, played, or read lately, and partly a set of links to actual articles and blog posts I’ve written for other websites.

That sounds really amazing.

I know.
