I'm Katherine on paper, Kaye growing up, stuck with spelling Kaich to strangers, and called by many other names by circumstance. I love animals, especially my Sharpei Bruce, eating and cooking, singing and performing, occasionally knitting, breathing in new places, CrossFit, Super Mario Brothers, and my small, filtered circle of family and friends 💛

On Top

Something miraculous happened today: the UP men’s basketball team won the first two consecutive games of the season, which hasn’t happened since 2005; and they beat DLSU for the first time in six years. #UAAPSeason78 Updated Men’s Srs. Basketball Team Standings pic.twitter.com/WlgqWVx8RB — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 9, 2015 This win can’t just be luck, it’s most definitely a combination of better coaching, individually talented individuals, teamwork, and rigorous training. It’s been years, but that just goes to show that excellence isn’t immediate: it’s earned through hard work, one day at a time. I hope they keep up this trend; […]

Personal Best

I used to dread Mondays: from being the start of a school week, to the first day of the work week, it was the day that forced me to abruptly shake off the comforts of the weekend. This changed since I started doing CrossFit at CrossFit Greenhills last year, and I’ve actually been looking forward to Mondays, itching to get back in the box (what we call our gym) to workout. I’ve mandated Saturdays and Sundays for muscle recovery, so I’ve noticed that I generally perform better at the start of another week.  Today was one such Monday, and I beat several personal records […]

We Live Life By Days

I’ve put off doing so many things for “someday,” because “someday” was always so safely vague and faraway. I set some dreams aside in this giant box of “someday,” collecting them like precious artefacts, taking them out for a dusting once in a while, but mostly keeping them tucked away. I imagined, and maybe half-expected, that those dreams would naturally and eventually be fulfilled; that I would see them realized given enough time. When I got older. After I graduated from high school… no, college. When I started earning my own money, or maybe when I had my first million. […]
