Hi. I’m glad you’re here. Let’s get to know each other. I’m Kate. Not a Mrs. Not as reckless as you would expect.

Who am I and what am I doing here?

Well. I’m still struggling to answer the first half of the question, but here are the facts: I’m a 21-year-old student of English philology, currently living in the beautiful capital of Poland. I’m in love with linguistics, I like working with words and, one day, I might become a professional translator. But let’s leave that for now. I quite enjoy being at university and want to make the most of my time there.

I’m a tea addict. I drink from giant mugs only and always fill them to the very brim. If nothing spills, it means I didn’t pour enough. If you ever visit me at my place, I’ll offer you at least fifteen flavours of tea to choose from.

I’m convinced that I’ve been writing ever since I learned how to hold a pen. Even before that happened, I was probably already writing stories in my head. I like to create people who don’t exist and complicate their lives, although these days I’m often too busy complicating my own. My mind’s always busy with something and writing is both my safe haven and a fast lane to insanity.

And yet, I feel that I still haven’t earned the privilege of calling myself a writer.

Which kind of answers the question of why I’m here. To allow myself to write and see what comes out of it. And since you happen to be here at the same time, please feel free to enter my world of controlled and reasonable recklessness. I can’t promise that everything will make sense here, but I’ll do my best to keep it interesting.

One more question. Why Mrs Reckless? You’ll probably find it disappointing, but there’s no deeper thought behind it. I was listening to You Me At Six a lot at the time of creating this blog and it’s just a nickname borrowed from their song called Reckless. Disappointing, I know. But there isn’t a thing that cannot be fixed with a little dose of fiction – and for that you can head here. (It’s always a good time for a little bit of shameless self-promotion, right?)

Mrs Reckless is someone I’m hoping to become. Quiet, careful and restrained in real life –on this blog, I want to be the opposite. Though there still tend to be the quiet periods, when I make a ton of excuses not to post and sometimes I’m still too careful and uncertain, wondering for ages whether or not I should just hit “publish”.

This is my challenge. To quit living in silence. To quit being afraid of voicing my thoughts. I want to take risks and see what happens. I want to scream loud and be heard.

So, would you like to hear me?

  1. Hi,
    I stumbled across your blog while searching for blogs which share my blog’s scope of writing. I love your writing style and means of expression. Could you please check out my blog and go through my writings there and perhaps follow back if you like what you read? Keep up the good work 🙂

  2. I like this about – you aspire to be something that you’re not and it maybe scares you a little. Sure, I’ll have a cup of tea, pass the milk and sugar 🙂

  3. It may be a coincidence to stop by here, but I think somehow there is a reason for me to click it 🙂 It feels great to find so many similar points in your “writing philosophy” that I can’t list all of them here.
    Well, it’s nice to talk to you, and I’m 20 too, so I can’t be a Mr. yet, but I find it interesting to see Mrs. in your username ^^ By the way, I am a Math student, but I love English language (with some Philosophy) too, so in order to write freely, I love that recklessness you talk about! Not sure about the time where you live, but I hope that you have a nice day 😀 Keep up the “reckless” writing and I will make sure to “hear” 🙂

    1. It’s nice to meet you, Duc! 🙂 Math is like dark magic to me, so hats off to you! I’m not sure I have any “writing philosophy”, I guess I make it up as I go. I make up a lot of things and pretend they’re something “artistic”, but I’m glad there’s someone who finds it enjoyable 🙂 Time zones are super confusing (it’s 6:30PM here right now). Hope you have a nice day too!

      1. Yeah, it’s so nice to meet you, again 🙂 Hope to interact more with you in the future 😀 And it’s 11:30 pm here, so I can still say “Today is really not a bad day hehe” 🙂 Have a nice evening then, ‘hats off to you’ to go to sleep now haha ^_^

  4. I don’t call myself a writer too. I prefer “word smith” because that’s really what I am, someone who happens to put words together and sometimes, makes sense out of it. Thanks for dropping by my blog, I’m loving yours. 🙂


  5. So your name is Kate 🙂 nice to meet you Kate! I look forward to seeing your newfound recklessness unfold on your posts.
    So far my reading has been entertaining, inspiring and flowing quite beautifully. Keep writing and dare hit that scary button. It won’t bite, I promise 😉

  6. You are a fabulous writer, and yes, you are definitely a writer haha. The pieces I’ve read so far have been captivating. I’m looking forward to hearing more from you 🙂 Thank you for following my blog, I’m honored.
