It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a young woman in possession of a good education must have an opinion about everything. 

Welcome! My name is Kate and I'm a woman in her mid twenties living in Australia. And if the sentence above isn't frightening enough, I also identify myself as an atheist, environmentalist and realist. I'm rather opinionated, but hopefully not in an arrogant way. As a child I went to public schools and graduated from university. Now, I work in a consultancy company and live with my partner and dog in a house near the coast. 

There are a few reasons I have decided to start this blog:
  • The world continuously provides me with thought-provoking (most often annoying) events and situations that challenge my views on life and society.
  • A blog is a good outlet for thoughts that would usually be forced onto some unsuspecting victim. 
  • I'd like to get my thoughts into the written word and see if it transcends to other people

I aim to make this blog fairly random with its topics, but it may morph into a theme. Who knows at this stage . . . . .
