I’m a big fan of the ‘not my circus, not my monkeys’ mi-yeah, you know what? No. I can’t write an intro for this while this photo of myself is staring me in the face. I really look like a monkey in a wig who stole glasses off a sad librarian. Who I am now tormenting as she cries in front of my cage how she just wanted to have a nice day at the […]
A little less than a year ago, I met Deborah de Poorter for a chat and a burger. Deborah is a writer who wrote “Het valt wel, maar niet mee“, (Rough but poetic translation: It’s not so bad, except when it is”) her own story about developing and dealing with her conversion disorder. She is now working on #Writeyourownstory, a writing course which also features workshops. She is a beautiful sweet thing of a woman who […]
I promised I would give you an update on using a Bullet Journal and therefore I will! Long overdue, but hey. It’s like a period: I don’t see the problem as long as you get it in the end. My handwriting isn’t that great and there’s a lot prettier Bullet Journals out there, but this is how I use it. My Bullet Journal of the past few months below!
source Vincent, the tall broad-shouldered BEAUTY of a man heavily featured in my Rome Report, is a data scientist. Or analist. Or something. …He’s so pretty, isn’t he?
I read a comment about Natalie Tran, one of the first and my old favorite YouTubers, the first to hit millions in view- and subscriber counts. It struck a cord with me. In this topic, “that being said, I think she is her own worst enemy, as her irregular upload schedule, vague promises of new content, and subsequent not delivering, have definitely affected viewer/subscriber numbers.”
zomg so deep (pic by Aline Bouma) Like what I said before in my how to destroy a negative thought article, I believe our mind should be a good place. We should have the right mindset for our lives, one that helps you feel good and helps you be productive, kind, helpful and awesome all-around. But our mindsets are not always the rosy, unicorn-riddled environment we’d like them to be. And it can be so hard […]
Badly Drawn Crab is judging you. Wikipedia & Urban Dictionary, trustworthy sources for life knowledge (but NOT for academic writing) tell me that the crab mentality is a (social) psychology phenomenon based on what happens with crabs in a bucket. The crabs could easily escape from said bucket (as they’re climbing all on and over each other, one of them is bound to reach the edge) but never do because they keep pulling each other […]
(picture by Andrew) A couple of days ago, I was having a conversation with a reader I know. I don’t know all of you, but I know some of you. Via comments, emails, the occasional coaching session. Sure, you may have more information about me, but don’t think for a second that I do not know you. We know each other. And I know what you are like. What your potential pit falls are. Because they’re […]
When I first started out on this website, I kind of wanted to be like Steve Pavlina. But a girl. And not as controversial. And not (as) into BD/SM and dominant-submissive relationships. Point is, Steve, one of the biggest self developmental bloggers out there (even though his website looks like shit), has said many an amazing thing. I love his book and still recommend it to anyone who will listen, and I have read so much […]
