***Nederlands onderaan*** It's funny... Not too long ago, a storyteller friend of mine did an exercise prompt where she had to think about someone as a plant, an animal, season a tree and so on. She also did one for me and this is how she sees me as a tree; 'I am a palm… Continue reading BLOGANUARY Day 30: Describe Yourself As A Tree
***Nederlands onderaan*** This is a very big question to ask an individual as I don't believe my actions are 'changing the world' really, but I do like to think I have some impact on my immediate environment. So... Challenge accepted! I change the world by adding colour to everyone's life. Literally! Because I study the… Continue reading BLOGANUARY Day 29: How Are You Changing The World?
***Nederlands onderaan*** Today is the second New Moon since the Winter Solstice, which also means that it is Chinese New Year! I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a bit more about the meaning of some colours in China and how that may differ from the meaning of colours in our Western culture.… Continue reading HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
***Nederlands onderaan*** I stopped my Spotify membership in September as I was not working anymore and I'm still not earning money regularly, so opening it up again is not one of my priorities. What am I trying to say with this?I don't have a playlist at the moment and I listen to my favourite Belgian… Continue reading BLOGANUARY Day 28: What Is On Your Music Playlist Right Now?
***Nederlands onderaan*** These exercises sure make me think about myself and my habits more than I'm used to! But so far (and I've only been doing this challenge for a few days) I like it. Where do I go when I need some time alone? Well, I stay at home. For me, there's no other… Continue reading BLOGANUARY Day 27: Where Do You Go When You Need Solitude?
***Nederlands onderaan*** Really? Really??? The favourite part about myself? REALLY??!!! Well, which one do I take, I have so many things I like about myself - I sarcastically think to myself. But as this was my first day working as an agency nurse in Scotland, I guess this prompt is a perfect 'feel-good-about-yourself'-boost. Looking back… Continue reading BLOGANUARY day26: What Is Your Favourite Part About Yourself?
***Nederlands onderaan*** Phew, this is another one that I need to think about for a bit...First of all I have to answer the question; "What makes me feel strong?" ... I don't know, but another question comes to mind: "What is feeling strong?" If I have to define 'feeling strong', I would say feeling strong… Continue reading BLOGANUARY day 25: Write About Something That Makes You Feel Strong
***Nederlands onderaan*** Hmmm, I need to do some thinking. Which dream do I remember enough to write about? Several vage ones come to mind, but I think I'm going to tell you about that time that I dreamt I was chasing an orange van. Before I dive into that, though, you should know that it… Continue reading BLOGANUARY: Write About A Dream You Remember
Hello Rapunzel, thank you so much for joining me. Can I please start with saying that I admire your courage to chase your dreams and for eventually leaving your tower to go out in into the great unknown? Even though you were uncertain at times or even worried, you didn't give up and that shows… Continue reading Bloganuary #23: Interview a Fictional Character
***Nederlands onderaan*** Today, as I was mindlessly scrolling through my unread emails, I opened a newsletter from WordPress. The tittle of the email didn’t seem promising to me, but the first post in their newsletter got my attention: ‘Have You Heard About Bloganuary?’ I didn’t, and I was intrigued. Only seconds after reading this, I… Continue reading Bloganuary
