It's only fair to warn you: Here lives a certain femme fatale trapped in the mind of a writer with an overactive imagination.  Said writer happens to be a curious, open-minded humanist. This will be a place for her random musings. Kind of like a blog, but the cool kids call it Substack these days.

You can expect to see random little essays on topics ranging from censorship, how to have better conversations and word misappropriation to whimsical thoughts about losing imaginary friends and insomnia. Anything goes. Here, there’s no left, right, or middle. Just thoughts. And everyone’s welcome to be part of the conversation—in fact, it’s encouraged.

So is feedback or suggestions for future topics to tackle: mysteriouskat@protonmail.com
