Thoughts: 25 bookish things I learned

Birthday time! I have turned 25 (the horror, the shock, etc.) and since there is a trend on the #internet to share X number of things you’ve learned (x equals your age) I thought I would join in! Here are 25 things I’ve learned, book themed obviously. Some are tips for younger me. Some are just reminders to myself. 1 Did you know you can walk and read at the.. Read More

Thoughts: Looking back on 2016

It is that time of year again, time to reflect on the past year and perhaps set some resolutions for the new year. Instead of creating two different posts like I have done previous years, I decided to combine them into one this year. Let’s reflect So first let’s reflect on the past year. I started 2016 at a low point, but with a non-fiction-could-definitely-be-defined-as-self-help book. I decided to write.. Read More

I will be back – soon

Long time no see. I haven’t been blogging for a while, because of reasons (which I have never found very valid, but which have gotten in the way regardless) and I have been missing it. I miss writing and I forgot why I started: to challenge myself to at least try. So this post is here to say: I will be back. I am thankfully still reading (Big Magic is currently being devoured and..

Thoughts: All by myself (cue Céline Dion)

Sometimes I want to write about random stuff, not about books or things to do, but just about things I think about. That is why I created the ‘Thoughts’ category, for when I want to ramble about things people might relate to. Or perhaps not, but for the one person who does relate, feel free to comment below! So this week I wanted to write about going out alone. Say.. Read More

Thoughts: Q & A

I thought in between all the posts about books and reading challenges I thought I would post a little update in the form of a Q&A. So hopefully you can find some A’s to your Q’s regarding my blogging lately and if you have some Q’s of your own please feel free to ask them in the comments below! So what’s up? I have been working on my graduation project… Read More

Thoughts: New Years Resolutions 2016

Last week there was no post, my first missed one since I started. I am sorry if you came to the blog expecting a post! The same goes for yesterday, but I felt that today was a better day to post my New Years Resolutions, since it is the last day of 2015. As you might have read in my ‘Looking Back’ post (find it here) 2015 was quite the.. Read More

Thoughts: Looking back on 2015

So it is not yet the end of the year, but 2016 sure is coming soon. Last year I did a similar post, reflecting on 2014 and I wanted to do the same this year to see what I’ve experienced, learned and how I have changed over the year. Let’s reflect! I remembered that I had also made a list of Resolutions and looking back on them, I only failed.. Read More

Thoughts: Recategorizing the blog

You may have noticed that there is something a little bit different in the blog this week. I have decided, after much consideration, to change my categories. I found that my categories were limiting me in the posts I wanted to write. Therefor I have changed my categories into actions: Do, See and Read. The more personal posts where I ramble about random things I find fascinating or that I.. Read More

Thoughts: The Capsule Wardrobe

I first heard about the idea of a ‘Capsule Wardrobe’ from Anna (from Vivianna does make-up). I had started clearing out my wardrobe because I had read ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up’ by Mari Kondo and let me tell you, that book is truly life-changing! I could definitely write a separate blogpost all about it, so let me know if you would like me too in the comments! Now on.. Read More

Thoughts: The schoolyear I hope will be my last

And we’re back: It has been the 1st of September, also known as the first day of the college year in Delft. For me it also meant the first day of my graduation year. I am both extremely excited and slightly scared by the idea that in a year I might be done…  The past year I have not really studied full time, the first semester I worked half the.. Read More
