My 5 Favourite Podcasts

Every once in a while I stumble upon a new obsession. In the past, these included endless re-runs of Riverdale, crocheting Christmas present all day every day, or listening to the latest Oscar & The Wolf album on repeat. My current obsession, however, is something I’ve discovered only recently and haven’t been able to let go:…

Hello September! // Editorial

Hello… it’s me! I was wondering if after all these weeks you’d like to read what I’ve been up to over the Summer – because, let’s be honest, the past couple of weeks (months?!) have been full of radio-silence. I feel like so much has happened, and so much is currently happening, since I’ve last…

Moving Masters #3 // Decisions, decisions…

One of the most important yet scary parts of getting a new apartment and moving house would be the part where you have to make some pretty serious decisions. Either you have to make them on your own, which requires quite some independence and confidence, or you have to make decisions together with other people,…

The Honest Hour #11 // Moving Out

Yesterday I moved out of my student room. Even though we had already moved most of my stuff and I had already moved in our new place in Rotterdam, yesterday was the day I really moved out of my student room. Already as I was walking up to the flat from the parking lot, I saw…

To commemorate this festive event on Almost Famous Writer, I looked back on the year since my last birthday and I listed exactly 21 highlights, including a…

The Honest Hour #1 // A Fear of Failure

I never thought of myself as someone with a fear of failure. All through high school, I had never been afraid of failure. I passed all of my tests and exams and presentations without little effort. I had that same feeling when I took my first driving exam: I was not afraid to fail it….

30 Days Challenge // Day 15 – Write A Letter To Your Family

Dear family, I am not sure what my earliest memory is. The first few couple years of my life are collided into a whirlwind of images, sounds and smells, all connected to one tiny house in the countryside. The house where my first memories were created and the house where little sister was born. One of…

Happy 2016! // My New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year! Yesterday I spent New Year’s Eve with my family in Goes. We played quizzes, ate lots and lots of oliebollen and lit hot air balloons into the midnight sky. Standing in front of our house, we could see colorful flowers of fireworks blossoming all around us. But now, when 2016 has fully…

Bye Bye 2015! // A Throwback Thursday

One of the best parts of having a blog is that at the end of the year, you can look back at all of your previous posts and travel back in time. On this Thursday, the last day of the year 2015, I’m having a little Throwback Thursday. Join me as I look back on…
