City by Night

I just realized I haven't worked in about 2 weeks. That's the longest I’ve gone without thinking of work since my last holiday in August. To celebrate my temporary freedom I continued a winter tradition. The Light Festival is something I’ve visited every year since 2016. Once with my girlfriends, once with another friend and this year my boyfriend was the victim. As I dragged[...]

Vision Board 2018: What happend, what didn’t

10 months ago

In February I uploaded my vision board. Two pieces of digital paper that I hoped would happen in 2018. I've looked at these images almost every day. They hang on the wall above my desk. Living together with my boyfriend. Probably not full-time, but I would like to have a second place to call my home. This happend! My boyfriend got the keys to his house[...]

Even if it's only a weekend... Hello there, long time no see. This is somewhat of a life update. I must admit that blogging isn't the first thing on my list in everyday life. Not because I don't want to, but because my creativity has completely dried up. Sometimes it saddens me. I used to write three posts a night, being completely immersed in the[...]

I went to the event, the one I wrote about earlier this year. As I walked into Schiphol airport on my way there, I was so excited. This was going to change my life for the better and (as everyone had told me) I was going to love this unforgettable experience. 20 minutes into the event though, I knew I was going to hate it.[...]

Getting some focus with a vision board

1 year ago

Ironically, my mind is always a mess, while my space is usually tidy. And when I say 'a mess', It means I want a million different things, I want them all now and I have no idea how to actually achieve them. So to channel my ambitions into something without going crazy, I usually create a vision board at the start of the year. This[...]

2017: The year of adulting

2 years ago

My baby brother was born. It still feels weird to realize I am not an only child anymore. Even after a couple months, it still feels like a whirlwind. I just hope it all settles down soon. Getting my first 'real job' as a copywriter. I'm very grateful for this to be my first job, yet I'm not completely happy and that's something I need[...]

30 before 30

So, I'm turning 23 on the last day of 2017. And would it really be me if I wasn't overthinking what the future will bring and making lists about it? Every year I get a little bit older and there is more pressure to 'be professional' and having my shit together'. It's not really that people around me are telling me this, but I just[...]

Yeah, I live for that shit. That conversation that makes you think 'wow, we get along so well, we're on the same wavelength and everything'.
