i just rewatched some old videos and got curious what cat was up to these days and...she moved to las vegas and is now a professional poker player while also having gone back to school? did someone follow up with that and is willing to fill me in because i want to know what i missed but not so badly that i can pretend to be interested in poker for more than a minute and a half.
Well, I don't have all of the details. But I do get mobile notifications for her tweets, so I have a few more. I also can't be bothered to do any in depth research, so this is just from memory:
  • She's been back in school for a while, and it sounds like it's something she really enjoys.
  • Several months ago (maybe more than a year?), she moved out of LA to somewhere in the surrounding area. (Maybe Long Beach?) She talked about the change being nice but also missing her friends.
  • In one video that I watched, she announced that YouTube was no longer her full-time job.
  • Prior to announcing her move to Las Vegas, she started tweeting with increasing frequency about playing in and doing well in poker tournaments. She's talked about being a gamer in the past, and she's talked about becoming fixated on one game at a time (League of Legends and Pokémon GO in the past). I figured poker was her new game.
  • The tweet that immediately preceded her announcement that she was moving to Las Vegas on 10/31/2018 has now been deleted, but it read:
    idk why but I just can't stand things being normal. its a blessing and a curse 🤪.
    I assumed that the two tweets were related, but who can say for sure? It gave me the impression that her move was not planned far in advance and was done more on an impulse.
  • I just skimmed through her video announcing her move to Las Vegas, and it seems that it was a pretty sudden decision to try to pursue her newfound passion in poker. Apparently, she was dating someone there over the summer (and no longer is), and she already has some friends there too.
Edit: Really? This is what's at the top of the page? ...well, maybe it's fitting since the post is all about a new chapter in Cat's life.

Despite not being subscribed to Cat, youtube recommends me her videos sometimes. I can't help but feel a little sad - she gets so little views and it must suck to drop in popularity so much. I never liked her though, so I can't pretend to care a lot either. I'm still bitter over her getting that puppy (that we saw with D&P) and then having to rehome it because she couldn't handle it with her other two dogs.

I think she dropped out of school for now, but might go back once she can apply for some funding program (or something like that). So she's out of school, out of youtube and playing poker. It doesn't sound great, but well, I hope it works out for her...

So I still follow Cat on instagram (for whatever reason idk I feel like at some point I would have unfollowed her by now but I guess not), and I saw the caption on her latest post advertising her video and it made me do a double take because...what?? So I went to watch it, expecting the worst and that was what I got. I just...don't see the point of making something like this? It just seems unnecessarily shitty and I definitely got that weird sense of "I'm not like other girls"/"I'll be your manic pixie dream girl" vibes from it and I was not a fan. A quick glance at her channel tells me that she's kind of even more at the end of her rope than I thought. I do feel for her, it can't be easy having to turn your life around like that and being lost, but I'm still so fucking baffled by this video. I don't understand why she felt the need to make something like that. To get sympathy? To get more views? It's just ignorant and shitty, and her ~disclaimer at the start made it even worse for me.

I couldn’t get more than a few minutes into it before I got too bored to see if the video turned around at all.

Basically she was going over the differences between how she feels girls treat her since she moved to Vegas, and how she seemed to be so lucky to have the "girlfriends" she had in LA, but now people seem to treat her like shit when they don't know her, and how for her whole life she has gotten along better with guys. She just seemed to present a very narrowed view of how relationships between girls go on, under an umbrella of "all girls are catty to each other". She even started the video saying she just wants to rant and she doesn't care if what she says is politically correct or not. And she kind of had this weird "call for feminism" for girls to be nicer to each other at the end which...felt very miss placed. And she kept referring to women and girls as "females" through the whole video which...was odd to me. I wish I could get the 8 minutes of my life back from watching it.

I could only tolerate three and a half minutes of the video before I seriously had to go barf. That's when she was making small noises, "I just want everybody to not hate each other and be insecure and jealous..." :yuck:

Wow. I can't IMAGINE why girls hate her. Such mystery! :facepalm2:
