Space and Time

danbo buried in sand

The list of things I've learned this year is pretty long, but one thing I keep coming back to is: if you want something different, you have to create space for it. And so I have tried to deliberately create it (with mixed results) but above all be mindful about what (and who) I let in, ...

This Week

Tiny Raccoon contemplates Manhattan

Life Came back to the UK for <48 hours just because I needed a gym and a washing machine, which made me vastly less stressed! Then went to NYC for 3 nights, where I got to catch up with some friends and drank lots of iced tea. Made it back to the UK for the weekend. ...

This Week


Life Talking to my freelancer friends, it's clear the first year is the hardest and there are some bad decisions that we all end up making for ourselves. For me this week has been a week of accepting those bad decisions and their consequences, and I've been feeling really shitty as a result. I have a plan, ...

Rio, May 2015


I was supposed to meet one of my friends in Rio, but at the last moment we discovered she wouldn't make it - she hadn't known she needed a visa, and hadn't been allowed on the plane. Whilst I love travelling alone, and I also love travelling with compatible friends too. But psyched up for ...

One Thing

Danbo, llegó la primavera.

I feel like the "life lesson" that I have had the hardest time accepting is that you cannot improve every area of your life at once. There are times when every area of your life does improve at once (those are so great, but rare, in my experience often brought on by a dramatic life event ...

Just Say No to Thankless Emotional Labour

Life Started the week in NYC, went to DC, finished the week in the UK. Completely wrecked! Leaving for Wales tomorrow. Past-Cate was a bit too optimistic about... everything. That being said I had a great time in NYC and DC even though I didn't really go anywhere - just the shopping mall where I was ...

This Week


Life Last days in Denver, making the most of the yoga pass! Managed to do a little touristing, get a hair cut (and color!) and hang out with people, which was cool. Then on to NYC where it's been really cool to catch up with people, been hanging out with awesome technical women (10 in total) ...
