The Get to Know Me Tag!


I thought by now you all already know a looot about me, but there is always something new to discover I guess. So, let’s do this properly thanks to Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Books who tagged me for The Get to Know Me Tag! We’ve had a long-standing blogging relationship by now and I still found out new things about her through this tag, so definitely make sure to visit her post as well!

vital stats

Name: Katja – it means “Blessed, Pure, Holy” according to several web searches. I wouldn’t go that far saying that about myself, but it does have a nice ring to it!
Nicknames: Kat, KittyKat, Ketchup (I only really like the first one to be clear!)
Birthday: 3rd of August 1993.
Star Sign: Leo – hear me roar. Ooops, wrong tag. I’ll do something Game of Thrones related soon.
Occupation: Working at as a cashier in a bookstore at the airport. I am still waiting for my You’ve-Got-Mail-miracle-love-story to happen.


Hair colour: Brown … yep, there’s not much more to it.
Hair length: Long-ish but not really? I intend to cut them shorter soon, like a little above shoulder-length.
Eye colour: Brown, sometimes glazed over, sometimes shiny and alive – depending on what mood I am in.
Best Feature: Like appearance-vise? I have hair like a lion – unruly and fluffy. Sometimes a real pain, but mostly I think it suits me.
Piercings: For earrings, yes. (3 on my left ear, 1 on my right)
Tattoos: Nope, although I love the idea of them. However, I know how fickle my mind is and that I don’t want something that lasts forever on my body if there is the realistic danger that I’ll get bored with it.
Right or Left: Always turn left! (Whovians will understand.) Other than that I am right-handed.


Best Friend: I don’t want to choose between my friends! I never liked doing that and there are so many who I consider to be among my best friends.
Award: I got the wacky award for being the only gal in Oregon to have a donkey’s drivers license. Does that count?
Sport: Carrying heavy stacks of books and magazines all day long!
Real Holiday: I think it was me and my family staying at a farm in the Austrian country side. I used to love it there.
Concert: Good Charlotte with one of my best friends.


Film: I can already tell that I am going to hate this category … let’s see … I know it’s cheesy, but I cannot tell you how often I have seen Cinderella Story now and still never get bored. Maybe that?
TV Show: The banner for the tag should tell you that the answer is still Doctor Who.
Colour: Green
Song: I cannot answer this with a clear conscience. However, Where Do We Go From Here by Ruelle is currently stuck in my head.
Restaurant: Let’s pick something “exotic”. The Y Mochyn Du in Cardiff quickly turned into my go-to-place.
Shop: Any and every bookstore.


Feeling: A little tired, I am always feeling a little tired lately.
Single or Taken: Single and ready to mingle hahaha no. I don’t have time for that.
Eating: Some honey waffles, yummy!
Thinking About: Work and blogging and how much I can schedule before going to bed.
Watching: All the shows are ending and I am NOT happy. Last thing I watched was Starz’ The Girlfriend Experience … not sure I fully got that.
Wearing: My new Florence + the Machine sweater, which is suuuuper comfortable (as it should be, considering what it cost)


Want Children: I always wanted 3 kids, but now I don’t know. I’ve really started to think about maybe becoming a foster parent one day.
Want to be Married: Yes.
Careers in Mind: I’d love to have the time to write for a living. Other than that, Marketing for a book publisher or working as a casting director.
Where You Want To Live: Maybe Toronto? Portland? Seattle? London? (the last one only if I can have my most epic flat with Marie, Cristina and Cátia as roomies)


God: I believe that there is something much bigger than us, however, I cannot say if that is God.
Miracles: Yes. Sometimes the most miraculous things can happen.
Love at First Sight: Hmmm … no.
Ghosts: A little.
Aliens: YES! How sad would it be if we were the only sentient beings in the universe? VERY! That’s the answer. There has to be more out there.
Soul Mates: Sort of. I believe that some people are just naturally drawn together.
Heaven: Maybe.
Hell: No.
Kissing on the First Date: If it feels right, then why not?
Yourself: Yes! I have seen myself accomplish some great things others have never had the chance to in such a short time and I believe that I can do great things in the future as well. However, everyone has their down-days, it’s only natural.

Do you feel like you know me so much better now? For fun’s sake, if you think a question was missing, ask me about it in the comments and I shall answer!

  1. Oh, Kat, you are blessed, pure and holy! Sorry, couldn’t resist haha. SO glad you did this, and SO quickly, wow, you’re fast ahah. I’m scared of getting a tattoo for the same reasons as you, I would be scared to get bored, and the removal procedure must be way too expensive or painful. I’d rather be 300% sure, or not do it.
    A Cinderella Story is probably one of my favorite movies, as well! I feel like re-watching it now, ahah. I love the quote you put, definitely a life motto. And honey waffles, girl you are making me way too hungry!
    I would love to write as a living as well, let’s hope that’s a dream coming true…and I’m all in for moving to London with you girls, just let me pack my bags, I’m comign right away! 😛 I see that you’d love to live in a big city, ahah 🙂
    AND YES, believe in yourself, you are AWESOME KAT, yay. Official fan number one here, haha 😛

  2. Thanks for the tag! I now regret not getting a Florence and the Machine sweater because that would be hella cool, dear god. And yeees to You’ve Got Mail – such a feel-good movie that caters SO MUCH to us book lovers! Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are just gold there. 🙂

    I really enjoyed reading your answers, thanks for sharing!

    • The sweater is awesome and I looked it up and it’s not even in the online store, so I am super glad I seized the opportunity.
      You’ve Got Mail will always remain one of my favourite movies … now that I think about it, I could have listed that in the category hahaha
      Can’t wait to read what you’ll do for the tag!


      • Have you watched their concert yet? They came to Melb late last year and it was honestly one of the best concerts I’ve been to – Florence was just AMAZING, and they held it in an open-air space so it was just the perfect ambience for their songs. :p

      • Yes! The concert was on Tuesday and it felt like some sort of religious experience or initiation into a cult. Florence has some serious energy, it’s crazy!
        Unfortunately the sound could have been better, but the experience as a whole was still amazing as well!


  3. This tag is so cool. Thanks for tagging me. I loved your anwers and get to know you better 🙂
    When should I start packing to move to London??? That would be awesome 😀

  4. I loved learning more about you Kat! (Though I may or may not start calling you Ketchup XD) Living in London with fellow book bloggers would be really cool and I NEED to watch Doctor Who :O

    • Hahaha I guess I do respond to Ketchup, so you can give it a go, but I don’t know how happy my response will be. I got that nickname because people on my semester abroad didn’t know how to pronounce Katja, they thought it was like catcher. And that sort of evolved into Ketchup … I don’t even particularly like ketchup.
      YES! Doctor Who – watch it! And start with the 2005 reboot and even if it looks cheap and cheesy, stick with it for at least 2 seasons and I think you’ll love it by then!

    • Well, when I was in the US, no one really knew about to pronounce Katja correctly. I had this English man as a teacher here in Vienna and he pronounced it like Catcher, so I thought maybe I could make it easier for them by letting them call me that. But it soon turned into Ketchup, which I don’t even really like to eat that much …
      I thought since we are going to move to London all the four of us, maybe we could actually afford a one-room apartment LOL
