"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 24, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.

one of my sandals fell apart while I was outside so I had to walk all the way back home with no shoes and basically destroyed my feet

when I was a kid my dad and I used to have a bunch of “imaginary animals” (they were called things like “the flowered crocodile”, or “the tuf-tuf”), I don’t remember how most of them came to be but I’d do their voices and my dad would talk to ‘them’ and they all had their personality and quirks and stuff. and earlier today my dad remembered about one of them and asked me if I remembered as well, then asked what happened to it since he “hadn’t heard from it in a while”, and I said “idk, maybe it died”…

…and now I’m actually sad about it.

I found these inside a box of stuff I got from my grandma’s house a while ago:


They’re rather old Italian coins. To give you an idea of how unusual it is to see them— before we switched to €, and at least since I was born, the smallest coin you got was £50. These ones are 50 £ cents from 1941 (with king Vittorio Emanuele III on the back), 10 £ cents from 1926, and I haven’t identified the third one because it’s too worn out but I think it might be £1.

There are a few others (a bunch of £5, £10 and £20 ones) but these are the oldest. They aren’t worth very much apparently but it’s still cool.
