About

Hello! I'm Catriona; a 22 year old from a small town in Ayrshire, Scotland. I've been blogging here since August 2007 but my old posts are long-gone to spare me some embarrassment. I'm a recent graduate, earning myself a wee BA(Hons) in Media & Communication from a university in Glasgow, and now work in the digital marketing industry. 

Catseyes has taken many different forms over the years. I started it as a 10 year-old, using it as a diary of my day-to-day life (even though my life as a 10 year-old wasn't exactly blog-worthy). I was lucky enough to be featured in Shout! magazine back in 2012, encouraging other teenagers to start blogs, which helped take my online diary to a new level. I started using it as a platform to write about my hobbies and passions at the time - books and beauty - and loved having a creative outlet. In 2016, I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, and my blog developed into a place to share my experiences with a chronic illness. I'm by no means an expert, but having a place to vent was incredibly helpful for me at the time. Since then, Catseyes has became a lifestyle and self-care blog, potentially my favourite form it's taken.

Have an explore. Thanks for stopping by ♥

  1. Hi Cat! Just wanted to say that I looove your blog?!
    But I do have two questions. And they are...
    1. What on earth is a nerdfighter? I'm sure it's awesome, but i don't know what it is...
    2. What are all these quotes on this post from? http://whativedonetoday.blogspot.com/2011/10/thats-why-her-hair-is-so-big-its-full.html
    They're really funny and I want to use them, but I'll look like an idiot if I don't know what they're from.
    Thanks! DFTBA!

  2. Thanks for your lovely comment! ^__^

    A nerdfighter is....I don't know how to describe it! :L Here's the Urban Dictionary defintion: A nerdfighter is a person who is proud to be nerdy and intelligent, and who fights to decrease WorldSuck. Nerdfighters are not composed of cells and tissue, but instead made entirely of awesome. Nerdfighters are known to perform their Happy dances when they are joyful, and each Happy dance is unique to its respective Nerdfighter. Nerdfighters are diverse in their hobbies, which can range from writing Nerdfighter songs to playing D&D. Nerdfighters have also been described as someone who is "Outgoing, intelligent and awesome enough to accept nerd as a compliment".

    As for the quotes they are from loads of different places! I'll list the sources in the same of order of the quotes on the post. :P

  3. May I be a nerdfighter? I think that some people in school think that's actually my name - "Hey! Nerd! Whatcha doin'?"
    I do not kid. That was actually said to me once. Of course, I was flattered. Nerds will rule the world someday.
    "Someday, you will all work for me!" -Kurt, of Glee
    Yup. Fellow TV nerd right there. And a quote! I'm impressed with myself.
    This comment has grown quite long and very awkward...so I'm gonna go do something productive now
    Bye!
