April Diary

I had hoped that April would be the month that I found out if studying abroad would still be possible. There’s no hope lost yet, Stockholm is still on. But as long as I don’t have confirmation about the courses I’ll be allowed to follow, you won’t see me doing a happy dance… Still waiting patiently.

Besides that April was a pretty slow month. After taking and passing my mid-term exams I had a week off, which was a much needed rest. Now school is back on, it means busier days and a big demand for my discipline.

Luckily there were a few days off in there: Easter and Kingsday. I spent easter at my sister and her hubby, helping them break down their old bathroom which is hard work. But we also had a lot of fun.

On Kingsday we celebrate the birthday of our Dutch King, which means almost everyone has a day off. There’s a market in the city where you can sell your old stuff and buy stuff from others and there’s artists performing in many locations. A great atmosphere in the city. Unfortunately I worked hard for school that day, but I did attend the market for an hour or so. But no pictures from that… Continue reading April Diary

Why I Blog

Why I blog

Why do I blog? Good question…
I’ve aksed myself this question for many times, but I never really found the right answer for it.
Before, I said I blogged because I like to share my creativity and fun things with the world. Later I added that I’d like to inspire people with my creativity and that I wanted to show people that it’s not that hard to make things yourself.
All true, but lately I found out the real reason why I blog. Continue reading Why I Blog

How to Plan for Succes

You know the feeling, right? You’ll be moving to another house or you’re about to change direction in your life. You think ‘from now on everything is going to be different, better’. I’ll keep up with my cleaning, yes, I’ll even make a schedule of when to do what! I’ll be able to keep my surfaces clutter-free and I’ll do the dishes every day. I’ll definetly keep up with my to-do-list.

And then, when you get there, you realise everything is still the same… Nothing changed. Stuff is piling up on your table, you make to-do-lists, but they only keep getting longer and longer.

That’s right about the point where you need to change the way you’ve been doing things up untill then. And that also counts for me, I really had to change the way I’m planning. Or better said, I had to start planning. Right at that time I read this blogpost at Last Day of Spring (sorry, only in Dutch) and it inspired me to try it too. Continue reading How to Plan for Succes
